Dark Gates - Release 0.9.0

So here we are again. This it time for new release, last one before going gold. Finally some of the old issues has been tackled and whole game is now more consistent. Let's brake it down on what's new and what's changed.

How To Play

From the main menu you can now access a quick, crash course guide on how to play Dark Gates. This will explain the  most common questions about mechanics and what's the end goal. Such guide is a first part of adding more context in the game. While this is purely information for newcomers, second part will include story elements but that's left for version 1.0.

Revamped party selection menu

This is a big change on how you select a team. Grid with heroes avatars allows you for much quicker navigation and more clear selection of heroes. Scroll art assets also has been done from scratch to bring them up to 1080p resolution and to create more unified look with rest of the game. Some repositioning of navigation guides should help as well.

Party Menu

Dark Gates intro music

Błażej Grygiel - composed a Rock Edit version of Dark Gates original score done by Alex Perucci. Both versions you can hear on DFour Games Youtube Channel. You can also hear Rock Edit on the intro of Dark Gates.

Dark Gates - release 0.8.0

As version 1.0 is finally on the horizon, DFour Games would like to show of our newest milestone - v.0.8. There is few changes so let's get to it:

Weapon Animations

This version introduces animations for each weapon available and also monsters attacks. Best thing is to see it for yourself but now every bite,swing, throw or flying arrow is now visible. Talking about weapons. Crossbow makes a debut as well.

New hero : Lorac

Lorac is our newest hero and she brings already mentioned crossbow to the arsenal. Crossbow is currently an exclusive weapon to Lorac but next release may bring some weapon swaps to other heroes.

Other Changes


From now on monster can only attack from second line if they have a projectile or can cast a spell. This brings 'reality of a fight' to be more inline and also changes team tactics. Main menu had a little revamp and you can now control music and sound separately in options menu. If you are into language packs, Polish and French languages are now put in their own files along with German. Bug introduced in version 0.7 where having Theregond ,Curvenol or Zareth in the team will break the game when attacked is now fixed. Save games from ver. 0.7 can be used unless you got those three heroes in your parties. Last think, If you not voted yet for DarkGates to be releases on Steam, now you have a single button, which will take you straight to Greenlight page :)

I'm happy to announce that Dark Gates will get his own comic book. This production will show a story of six heroes entering Labyrinth ... well you know the story.  This project is in very early stage but It will be definitely finish before final release of the game. As a massive thank you to every one who supported Dark Gates by purchasing a copy of alpha on Desura, Gamers Gate or Direct Download (provided by Desura), comic book will be attached as pdf to the game. As soon comic book will be ready, you will get it. Below you can see a taste how the art will look like - Braqoon and Gilith - pencil & ink by Armando Rillo.
