Red Hook’s Official Statement on Darkest Dungeon Modding

Officially, we can’t give our stamp of approval to any mods at this time because that could come with the obligation for providing technical support and related troubleshooting. Also, our particular vision of the game is still very much in work and we wish to devote 100% of our attention to that at this time. Early Access, by its nature, will be full of balance changes, feature additions, and so on.

That being said, we believe modding in general is good for the community and we’re excited it’s happening. We plan to release official modding tools (e.g. Steam Workshop) at some point in the future and are excited to see what the community might create at that time.

If you create and distribute a mod for Darkest Dungeon, we ask that you include the following language or its equivalent:

<mod name> is not an official Red Hook Studios product or product modification, and Red Hook Studios Inc. is not responsible in any way for changes or damages that may result from using the mod. Furthermore, “Darkest Dungeon” and the Darkest Dungeon logo are trademarks of Red Hook Studios Inc. All content in the game is Copyright Red Hook Studios Inc. All rights reserved.

If your mod confuses potential consumers in a way that may cause them to believe that the mod is an official Red Hook product, then we would be forced to ask you to take it down or otherwise eliminate the confusion.

Finally, you may not commercially monetize your mod in any way, as that would impinge upon Red Hook’s intellectual property rights.

Good luck, and let us know how it goes! If some of you want to make the Dungeon a tad bit lighter (or darker), we won’t stop you. 😉

    Noted!

    If you had a mod subforum then you could have a cautionary topic stickied at the top. Just saying.

    Great to hear you support modding, in terms of letting us add some extra flavor to your game. In the long term a modding community can really help enhance the longevity of a game.

    And I believe this title has a bright… I should say darkest? future ahead of it 🙂

    Thanks for adding the subforum to steam, I will definitely put anything I come up with there.

    Current class mods/variants:
    Shadow-Dancer, Maiden, Paladin, Lord, Blackguard, Falconer, Apothecary, Huntress, Baron, Diablo Pack (Necromancer, Sorceress, Monk, Demon Hunter, Witch Doctor)

    Good to hear modding will be supported. This should help people who will not like the default version.

    Well, mods add more depth to a game and provide many more options which typically make the vanilla version more difficult than anything. Otherwise it defeats the purpose of a mod in the first place. (see xcom:long war for ex)

    Yes yes, focus on making the best game possible now, the modding tool can wait until the game has the ‘RELEASED’ stamp on it. The game is great already, so you have a nice foundation to work with.

    I believe in you and you must know that many people love this game.

    The match is struck, a blaaazing star is born.
