DARQ is a horror adventure game that tells the story of Lloyd, a boy who becomes aware of the fact that he is dreaming. Unfortunately, the dream turns into a nightmare, and all of Lloyd’s attempts to wake up fail. 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.
Other than gravity-defying puzzles, Lloyd will have to use stealth when nearby enemies. However, he cannot win in an open confrontation since the creatures he will encounter are much more powerful and faster than him. Rather, he has to rely on careful planning to avoid getting detected.
