Darkest Dungeon meets Dungeon Keeper in Iratus: Lord of the Dead, now on Kickstarter

Iratus: Lord of the Dead is an upcoming Darkest Dungeon-inspired tactical RPG, where you play as (you guessed it) Iratus, a sardonic necromancer seeking revenge against the living after a millennium of imprisonment. The developers are a Russian indie studio by the name of Unfrozen, who count the Codex's own Pope Amole II (known elsewhere as the Nerd Commando) among their ranks. Iratus was first revealed back in January, and two weeks ago Unfrozen launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise additional funds for it. Unfortunately it's not doing very well, which is kind of puzzling because the game looks pretty damn cool. Check out the pitch video, where Iratus himself gives a hammy but thorough introduction to its mechanics:



Iratus: Lord of the Dead is a turn-based RPG taking gameplay inspiration from the Darkest Dungeon and the sardonic tone of Dungeon Keeper. Playing as the fearsome Necromancer, Iratus players will use their undead minions to ignite a reign of terror that has been years in the making. Iratus is slated for release in late 2018 on Steam for PC, Mac, and Linux.

Features

Advanced strategy system: Study your enemies' strengths and weaknesses to achieve victory.

Raise your army of undead minions by collecting body parts from your defeated foes.

Use your knowledge of alchemy to give unique abilities to your minions.

Turn-based combat system with over 50 different talents for your minions.

Stylized 2D graphics with a dark fantasy flair.

Choose wisely: with irreversible consequences and classic roguelike features, including character permadeath.
Unfrozen are looking to raise $20,000 on Kickstarter to make Iratus better. You can get yourself a copy for just $15, with beta access at $20 and alpha at $45. There's also a free demo you can try. I'm not sure the campaign has a chance at this point, but it sounds like the game will be finished no matter what, so that's good.
