When we think of dark fantasy games, Dark Souls and Castlevania come to mind. Dig a little deeper, and you'll run into Salt and Sanctuary or Bloodstained. Finding more of them can be tricky—we won't lie, there are plenty of dark fantasy games, in about as many flavors as adventure or action games. Did you know about these titles yet? Give them a try on Utomik!

Dark Devotion

Reminiscent of Blasphemous or Castlevania in the best way, except different: Dark Devotion gives you a kick-ass, female protagonist! Set out on a dark pilgrimage fraught with terrors and mysteries, lined with a somber yet immersive story. The depths of this fallen temple will put your faith to the ultimate test, as though the walls itself yearn to kill you. As a 2D souls-like, Dark Devotion will push you to your limits. It would be best to choose your next move wisely if you hope to avoid damnation at the claws of eldritch creatures. Customize your protagonist depending on your current objectives and enemies, and tread lightly upon the many paths the game offers. Pick a god…and pray.

Rain World: Downpour

You may just be the cutest slugcat in existence, but your ecosystem does not care. Your adorable self will only look like a delicious snack to the predators around you. In Rain World: Downpour, you help one of several slugcats set out on a journey. Fight to find back your lost relatives, but most of all to survive the horrors of this survival 2D platformer. Each slugcat has its own unique way of dealing with the crushing world they're born into. When everything is out to get you, how will you survive? Use the lush ecosystem to your advantage, and hone your skills in order to come out on top even when the enemy is that much bigger than you. After all, the bigger they are, the harder they fall.

My Lovely Daughter

My darling angel, where have you gone? My dearest child, please come home. In My Lovely Daughter, you dive into the psyche of a mourning father. As an alchemist, he will use every bit of twisted power at his disposal to bring his beloved little one back to life. Even if it's at the cost of everything and everyone else. Steel yourself to harvest innocent souls in this storybook-styled simulator game, where the only splash of color you’ll see is red. Raise unique homunculi 'daughters' as your own, then sacrifice them for the greater good. In the end, though... Once you lose it all, is there really a way back?

Elypse

Ready to take a trip to the Abyss? We just touched upon sacrificing others, but what if you were the sacrifice? In Elypse, the inhabitants of your realm must make an offering every ten years. This time, it's your turn. Having dropped down to a dark place none have ever returned from, you must embark on a journey back to the surface accompanied only by your own courage and a strange character named Nyx. Fight for all you're worth in this story-rich, 2D platformer. Nobody made it out alive before, but someone surely has to be the first. Although, what other dark secrets does the Abyss hold that it's so desperate to bury alongside you?

Flipping Death

As it turns out, Death is cheap. In Flipping Death, you're made to fill in for the grim grandmaster himself, even though you only just passed away! Cause unknown, but you may just end up finding out what happened if you play your cards right. This puzzle adventure has its own creepy style, featuring more color than you'd expect. Even though you're dead, at least you have the reaper's powers at your fingertips. Enjoy your newfound new-stolen ability to take control of the living while assisting the dead, flipping between both realms effortlessly. Cheating death is out, Flipping Death is in.

Psst. Mark your calendars: another exciting and critically acclaimed dark fantasy title coming to Utomik later this week! Let’s get into the zone with these awesome games. Any guesses which new game will be arriving soon?
