The solo developer behind horror-filled puzzle game Darq, who last week revealed why he turned down Epic Games Store exclusivity (opens in new tab), will release multiple free DLCs before the end of the year.
The DLCs, currently at the early concept stages, will add new levels to the gravity-bending puzzle game, Wlad Marhulets (aka Unfold Games) said on Twitter.
We're incredibly grateful to the community for all the support DARQ has received so far. To acknowledge your support and express our grattitude, we're going to be releasing a few DLC's later this year, entirely for free.https://t.co/Le7DYolCN3 pic.twitter.com/mYuMLKGwAEAugust 24, 2019
In a Steam post (opens in new tab) announcing the DLC, Marhulets also thanked fans for their support following a blog in which he explained why he turned down Epic's exclusivity offer. In the blog, he called on Epic to allow indie games to sell simultaneously on the Epic store and via Steam.
"I didn't expect my blog post to result in so much good will and support. Please know that I don't take any of it for granted and I'm truly grateful," he said in the Steam post. The game currently has "very positive" user reviews on Steam (opens in new tab), and some cite Marhulets' decision to turn down the Epic deal as the very reason they bought the game.
