The movie, TV-show and videogame website Filmbeef, has written an article about Darkest Dungeon.
Here is an excerpt:
For me, this “Affliction System” as they call it, is an amazing concept that adds a whole new level of immersion and gameplay. This isn’t The Sims where your character is depressed because he can’t find love or a job. This is a ruthless dungeon where your heroes are fighting monsters while simultaneously battling psychological trauma. They have every reason to be depressed and insane.
