  • DARQ


DARQ tells the story of Lloyd, a boy who becomes aware of the fact that he is dreaming. To Lloyd's misfortune, the dream quickly turns into a nightmare and all attempts to wake up end in failure. While exploring the darkest corners of his subconscious, Lloyd learns how to survive the nightmare by bending the laws of physics and manipulating the fluid fabric of the dream world.


Apart from gravity-defying puzzles, Lloyd will have to use stealth when nearby enemies. He has no chance of winning in an open confrontation, since the creatures he will encounter are much more powerful and faster than him. Instead, he has to rely on careful planning to avoid getting detected.



  • Psychological horror set in a lucid dream, relying on slow build and creepy atmosphere rather than gore and violence.
  • Unique artstyle and detailed environment to explore
  • Sound design by Bjørn Jacobsen, known for his work on such games as Cyberpunk 2077 and Hitman.
  • Puzzles that involve bending the laws of physics (walking on walls and ceilings) , manipulating the dream world (moving things, rotating rooms), collecting and using found objects, and avoiding enemies.
  • Hidden secrets to find (optional, for hardcore players only)



Hey Dreamers! My apologies for the blunder - the 1.3.2 version came with an unexpected bug. This little patch should fix the black screen / soft-lock issue when switching between the head and the body in several spots of The Crypt. A big THANK YOU to Dean C. and Georgie G who submitted videos, which made it so much easier to pinpoint the issue. Thank you all for understanding & your patience! Please make sure your build is updated to the 1.3.2b version (it shows in the top-right corner of the pa...


Hey Dreamers! A big thank you to those of you who submitted videos & stayed in touch to help me troubleshoot & bring you an even better, more stable build! Fixed issues Some of you reported a soft-lock after solving the Bell Puzzle in The Crypt. It's now fixed. Some of you reported an issue that involved the head resetting its position in the rotating disk/coin puzzle. It's now fixed. Some of you reported issues with wireless controllers. No changes to the input system have been made in a very l...


Hey Dreamers! Thank you all so much for submitting bug reports! I really appreciate your patience, positive attitude & understanding (It's genuinely difficult to release a perfect & bug-free build on day one, especially when a team is small and the level (The Crypt) quite ambitious and non-linear. ) I'm happy to say that most of the bugs that have been reported are now fixed. Some issues I was unable to replicate just yet, but I'm in touch with a few of DARQ's fans who graciously agreed to help ...
