In Dark Gothic – a semi-cooperative, deck-building game set in the A Touch of Evil universe – players assume the role of competing, monster-hunting heroes at the dawn of the 19th Century, forced to work together to defeat creatures and adversaries intent on destroying the town.

It is the year 1808, and the Sea of China is ripe with plunder. Command a pirate junk as you sink the Emperor’s ships, loot the port of Hong Kong, and learn the skills to take command of The China Pearl, the grandest ship in the fleet of the infamous Madame Ching.
Players will manage hands of navigation cards and match symbols to gain skills, play increasing numbers to complete missions, sack Hong Kong, and reach the end of the world. To win the respect of Madame Ching, you’ll need to carefully play your cards and outwit your opponents.
