Independent development studio Giant Space Monster (GSM) today announced that it has officially released the much requested controller support update for their original dark fantasy action RPG title, Immortal Darkness: Curse of the Pale King.
Previously only available for mouse and keyboard, the new version is now compatible with official Xbox and PS4 controllers. With controller support players can now enjoy the dark fantasy dungeon crawler in a way that feels completely new, even for die-hard fans. The studio says that players can expect solid, smooth gameplay even while using a wide variety of spells.
To make the transition from mouse and keyboard to controller as seamless as possible, GSM has added integrated aim assist. This adds the ability to easily tap to cycle through enemy targets and hold to lock in Shade while causing maximum casting havoc.
ABOUT THIS GAME
Immortal Darkness: Curse of the Pale King is a dark fantasy dungeon crawler, that blends the best of old school dungeon crawlers with modern graphics, slick combat, and context driven audio. It features challenging real-time tactical combat, a wide variety of spells, and a dark and brooding dungeon full of lethal enemies, sadistic traps, and mind-bending puzzles.
The world of Uuld is under siege by the Vampyr who have destroyed and devoured all but a few remaining strongholds of civilization. The world's last hope, Shade, an ancient and legendary vampire hunter, has been bitten in the last epic battle on the surface.
You play as Shade now struggling against the vampiric curse, using it to heal yourself but at a terrible price. You must fight your way through a twisted labyrinth of horror and death to finally face the Pale King, lord of all Vampires, before succumbing to the vampiric curse yourself.
Fools Rush In
This is a game that will challenge you to think tactically about every situation. Rushing into a room without a good plan will most likely get you killed very quickly. Control the flow of combat by using spells and potions to slow, stun, confuse, poison, scatter, separate and take out your enemies a few at a time.
As a half-vampire your primary means of healing is drinking the blood of your fallen enemies. Using this ability pushes you closer and closer to full vampire. Use it sparingly or pay the price. There are ways to reduce your build-up of evil, such as potions and holy altars, but they are few and your enemies are many.
Items are Everything
With the exception of your basic melee attack, every spell and ability you will have is based on the items you choose to equip to the 6 slots in your action bar. As you progress through the game and your pack begins to fill with dozens of items, choosing what you equip to your action slots will define everything about how you play and what you can do.
Secrets Within Secrets
Few will find every secret or unlock every puzzle in this centuries old dungeon. Evil has been at work here since ancient antiquity and there is more concealed in this place of eternal gloom than anywhere else in Uuld.
Decisions that Will Shape the Cosmos
There are many factions at play here and who you decide to ally with and who you decide to oppose has the power to dramatically reshape your story and the fate of this world, and possibly many others.
To celebrate the release the title will be on sale on Steam for two weeks at its lowest price ever, $9.99.
