Darkest Dungeon is Released

One of the most engaging dungeon-crawling games in a while, Darkest Dungeon, is out of Early Access and now released.

The big deal for me is that this game, moreso than many others, really does capture the feel of early D&D campaigns focused around exploring and clearing a megadungeon. Characters are disposable, death is permanent, poor planning produces piss-poor results, and you run multiple characters at a time.

I want this game. It's on my wishlist at Steam. Until I can get into a proper Open Table West Marches D&D campaign, this will have to do as this is the closest other-media equivalent to a good and proper campaign of D&D.
