Main IdeaHardcore bullethell roguelike in the space setting.
Main DescriptionDarkest Hour is a roguelike, in which the player will clean up spaceships and colonized planets of the solar system, collecting items and gaining new abilities at the same time.
The main emphasis is made on a hardcore gameplay, where each enemy, having no proper experience, is of a great danger. It is very important to react quickly and plan a route immediately for killing mobs in order to lose less armor and health.
In spite of various long-range weapons, the main one is still the pipe, so the player will have to dodge enemy projectiles and traps constantly, coming close to the mobs. A difficult-to-master energy shield, which gives a huge advantage with the right skill, will also help to avoid damage from projectiles.
