Early Gameplay Footage


Dusky Depths is a physics-based side-scrolling action shooter. Annihilate other players in team-based game modes such as capture the flag or play the deadly perma-death adventure mode alone or cooperatively with up to 8 friends.

In the rogue-lite adventure mode, you are a mercenary stranded on an unknown planet inhabited by odd creatures and rundown machinery. You were supposed to merely surveil the planet, but an attack by the planet's autonomous drones has caused your on-board subspace teleporter constructor to malfunction.

It teleported parts of its core indiscriminately across the whole planet. The remainder of the teleporter core is only capable of creating medium-range teleportation portals — but that's not enough to escape the planet's atmosphere.

In order to escape from this world, you have no choice but to find all of the missing core fragments.
