About Us

We are a merry band of veteran game developers disillusioned by the exploitative and greedy practices we once helped create. We are experts who have worked on many of the biggest hits in Korea.

We’ve seen first hand how corporate game companies sell their soul for the easy payday. We are disappointed to see them doubling down on more and more exploitative practices, becoming more like casinos instead of bringing joy to gamers.

We’re fighting to win back the hearts of gamers around the world. We believe that by creating games with soul, and by respecting our users we can usher in a renaissance of awesome video games direct from Korea.

Our Mission

We want to show the world that Korea can build global gaming franchises that encompass rabid fans from both the East and West.

People all around the globe appreciate the formidable creative potential of Korea when it focuses its energy on pushing boundaries. We have some of the most dynamic and hardest working creators on the planet.

Our mission is to grab hold of this potential and create games true to our roots that put gamers first and even bridge cultural gaps.

Irresistibly Classic

Dark and Darker aims to capture the wonder and awe of classic fantasy adventure games. We stand on the shoulders of giants and strive to pay respects to the traditions of the genre. We hearken back to the old worlds where danger lurks around each corner, but where courage and adventure are rewarded with untold riches. Magic and steel reign supreme in a never-ending battle against the wicked. Instead of shying away from our roots, we embrace that familiarity and look forward to incorporating all the dungeon fantasy tropes as a loving homage.

Choose a role, party up!

Team up with friends and assemble a party to increase your chances of survival. Choose from a wide array of timeless fantasy roles and build the perfect three-person squad. Play as a brawny barbarian holding the frontlines while your sharp-eyed ranger friend fires arrows from afar and your merry bard sustains morale with a lively tune. Customize your character with new perks, skills, and equipment as your gain experience and level up.


Unforgivingly Hardcore

Dark and Darker is a world of high risks and high returns. Explore a mystical underground fortress where the dangers are unrelenting and the smallest misstep can result in death. Sound judgement reaps huge rewards, but death carries a heavy penalty with the loss of all your loot. Even the smallest decisions in this merciless world have heavy consequences and carry tactical weight.


A focus on First-Person Combat

Dark and Darker strives for high immersion. Adventurers must use their eyes and ears like you would in the real world. Players must target, track, and aim against the countless challenges they encounter. We supply a wide array of close combat weapons that each have unique patterns to learn and master. Strikes to the head and back do critical damage. Knowing how to properly wield each weapon gives the player an edge to survive in this harsh world.


Old Magic

Magic is a powerful but unwieldy force in the world of Dark and Darker. Mastery requires long incantations, special skills, the right channeling equipment, and a tactical eye. Spells must be timed and aimed for maximum effect. For the magically uninclined, tinkering, knowledge of special equipment, and a little foresight can help level the field.

Comfort in the Shadows

The darkness is your friend in this unrelenting setting. Turn off lights and use the darkness to hide from foes or set up ambushes. If the tides of battles take a turn for the worse, blending into the darkness can lead to a stealthy retreat.
