Dark Deity launched on June 15, 2021, after a successful Kickstarter campaign connected the developer with publisher Freedom Games. Creator Chip Moore noted in an interview with Siliconera that he conceptualized the project during college back in 2018. As a direct homage to GBA-era Fire Emblem games, the creator explained that he hoped the game would serve as an introduction to the strategy-RPG genre to a new generation of players. Moore even hinted at a possible Nintendo Switch port for Dark Deity. At the time, he stated that it would depend on the performance of the PC release.

The tactical RPG is inspired by the Fire Emblem series, updating the genre for modern audiences with higher resolution character art. As we noted in our review of the game, Dark Deity offers a variety of improvements and adjustments to the typical formula such as replacing “permadeath” with permanent stat decreases. The game received a generally positive response, currently sitting at a “Mostly Positive” on Steam.

Dark Deity is available now on the PC via Steam. Sword & Axe and Freedom Games plan to release the Nintendo Switch port sometime in 2022.
