Classes start for action RPG Our Darker Purpose on Steam tomorrow at 9AM PT – and then they're immediately canceled because all of the teachers have disappeared and the school is overrun with terrifying monsters. Indie studio Avidly Wild Games Kickstarted Our Darker Purpose to the tune of $40,000 in June and pushed it through the dark, convoluted passages of Steam Greenlight in October.

Our Darker Purpose has a cartoonish, Tim Burton art style and is inspired by The Binding of Isaac, A Link to the Past and Diablo – it's a roguelike with permanent twists.

"Each playthrough features a unique set of procedurally generated levels," Avidly Wild says. "Death is permanent, but your accomplishments earn you resources to buy lessons and upgrades in the afterlife ... and your education lasts forever. Every game teaches you more about the Edgewood Home for Lost Children, the disappearance of the adults, and the darker purpose of the Administrators."

We always knew there was something up with our school administrators.
