    Beware, most of the good user reviews of this game here and on Steam have nothing to do with the game itself but rather about some Steam vs. Epic fanboyism and if you read them you can clearly see that, I wish I knew that before.
    The game is really short (about 1 hour), which is not usually a bad thing when the game is good but in this case there's nothing really special that justifies that.

    Considering that Darq is the work of –mainly- one person without prior knowledge in game development, it is nothing less than a highly commendable achievement.
