---------------------------------------

“I loved it so much that I stopped eating for a week to free up more time to level up my Assassin.”
-Count Chompula

“Even my dog likes it!”
-Transylvanian Redneck

“My girlfriend dumped me for Darkin, and I’m strangely okay with that!”
-Angry Max

---------------------------------------

In Darkin you will ascend to power within three vampire clans, hone your abilities, sharpen your teeth, get your fix of that fresh, delicious AB+ and develop a keen eye for bloodsucking baddies.



**FEATURES**


LINK 3+
Similar to the Match-3 puzzle genre but with a twist. Connect tiles up and down, backwards and forwards, even diagonally while linking as many tiles together as your dark heart desires.


3 UNIQUE CLANS
Climb the ranks within each of the three clans and unlock over 40 new abilities along the way in your quest for total blood domination.


3 UNIQUE GAME MODES

◊Almost Eternal◊ - An endless mode where you do your best to prove you’re immortal.

◊Bloody Countdown◊ - Test your skills in an attempt to survive a quick and painful 100 turns.

◊Sunrise Survival◊ - The sun is coming up and it’s only a matter of time. Fight against the clock on your way back to your coffin.


POWER-UPS
Your money is no good in this world… collect Blood Coins and Dark Energy to buy all the power-ups needed to keep you un-dead instead of dead-dead.


SAVE PROGRESS
We understand that this pesky world can sometimes get in the way of enjoying immortality, thus, you will progress every single time you play, no matter for how long. And worry not, you can also safely suck a little blood on your way to work without losing your progress with our auto save feature.


GAME CENTER INTEGRATION
Find out which of your friends also frequents the world of the immortal in the Game Center leaderboards and compete against them to complete all 40+ achievements.


BEAUTIFULLY CRAFTED SOUNDTRACK
Accomplished synth-pop artists Ashbury Heights (iTunes: Ashbury Heights) has completely redefined the status quo, puzzle game music with their eerily catchy Darkin gameplay tracks written specifically to enhance the experience of each mode.


BUY ONCE, PLAY EVERYWHERE
Darkin is a universal app optimized for both iPhones and iPads.

Been playing Darkin for weeks now. It is an improvement to the Dungeon Raid formula with a 2014 feel to it. A lot of content here but I will delete the beta before buying the AppStore game and start over. With GameCenter Achievements, they are really fun and I will collect them all. This game is so much fun that it is y favorite match game ever. I love this game.

What go all the numbers in the top right mean? I watched the gameplay video and aroun d the 7 min mark, the top right red number goes to zero and resets, but I didn't see how that affected anything. Thanks.

That's your XP bar (you level up and earn your next class ability).

The two arrows in the green box show what turn you are on.

The left white box shows how much damage on "teeth" tile does, and the right shows how much health a single heart tile regenerates. Both are upgradable within a session.

Some quotes by JCho and me, from the upcoming games thread:

Ten Foiled Hats are really cool guys who has been playing games for 30 years and pretty much knows their gaming -and it shows- (no arse-licking here, its a fact). And I am so happy, the game is soooo good. Surpassed my greatest wildest expectations and they were pretty darn high, they were through the roof... Its better than best, even better than awesome. Not trying to hype here. xD

Yes, better than better, the betterbest!

They fit the action so well, its very congruent.

And who is hyping anything here? xD This is simple the best match-3 game I ever played, without any doubt. The more I play it, the more I like it... is there any word beyond "love", more strong than that? xD

It has way more content than I anticipated -and anticipated much-. And I took a look at the achievements and there are 64 of them, some very nice. This game is so awesome...

They will bring us only the best when that happens

Seriously, congratulate everyone on your team. You guys did an amazing job on this! There's just so much awesome stuff packed into this. The art style is amazing, the music is awesome, all the different enemies and bosses and modes and abilities and classes and skills.. Just wow! Really really fantastic job. This passes 10000000 as being my favorite match (or link) 3 RPG.

On thing I would like to say again is just how awesome the boss variety is! Each one is so unique, art and mechanics-wise, that it's a huge pleasure coming across a new one, even if they kill me.

I hope to see some of your other ideas somewhere down the line!
