Dark deity launched on June 15, 2021, after a successful Kickstarter campaign connected the developer to publisher Freedom Games. Creator Chip Moore noted in an interview with Siliconera that he conceptualized the project during college back in 201
The tactical role-playing game is inspired by Fire emblem series, and updates the genre for modern audiences with higher resolution character. As we noted in our review of the game, Dark deity offers a number of improvements and adjustments to the typical formula, such as replacing “permadeath” with permanent statistical reductions. The game received a generally positive response, and is currently on “Mostly Positive” on Steam.
Dark deity is now available on PC via Steam. Sword & Ax and Freedom Games plan to release the Nintendo Switch sometime in 2022.
