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.

The goal of the main game mode, the adventure mode, is to find so called teleporter fragments. But watch out — enemies will try to stop you by either directly attacking you or by setting up cunning traps.

Eventually, after having found all fragments, you'll be able to build a teleporter with which you can progress to the next level — if you can defend the teleporter construction, that is. Setting up defenses such as turrets and walls is the key to successfully defending the construction site.

However, even if you fail, every new run will allow you to unlock new ships and items.

In the end, the sheer amount of different ships, items, enemies, worlds and contraptions will provide a new gaming experience everytime you start a new game.
