Editors’ Notes

Simultaneously novel and retro, Into the Dim is a dungeon crawler with a turn-based twist. As you explore grayscale dungeons, you’ll need to carefully plan each movement or be attacked by skeletons, flying eyes, and other monsters. Filled with chiptune blips, a delightfully hardcore difficulty, and 8-bit graphics that would feel at home on a Game Boy, it's a rewardingly old-school experience.


Good game, broken in some ways

Overall this is a good game. Though it was just updated so that not all levels were unlocked, I am here to talk about the difficulty. Some parts of the game are easy, but it's the little things that make the big problems. For example, the health whenever you die. I think it is unfair that you have one heart left when you die. Sometimes there will be heart containers nearby when you start a level, but since everything one shots you in those circumstances, it takes luck for no skeletons, bats, etc. to spawn around you. Another problem would be the cost of upgrades. I understand that the point of high costs would make the player play the game longer, but since it takes a while just to get 20 coins, getting 80 to refill your health, only to die again would be a waste of a lot of coins. My thoughts would be to make everything that is buyable with coins cost half the price (or more) cost , making it easier to advance throughout the game.


This game is literally the definition of awesome!

Every time I pick up this game I get into grove every time and can never put this game down! It’s not a perfect game, there are some things that are flawed, but Nothing can ruin the game (even itself!) the game only has 16 dungeons at first and get more as you go, but it felt like nothing was put into most levels, just a few monsters and or puzzles. I think the game would be awesome if you could get way bigger dungeons or different weapons with more power or storage for bullets. Or even a infinite dungeon that continues pumping monsters and levels! I am only like 39% through the game, but I love everything this game offers, even the colorless design and amazing art that’s in this game! I really hope you continue with this game, or some more games in the future! (And just between us, I would pay at least 1.99 extra for it personally)
