Additionally, the early access release introduces an in-game shop. Ironmace recognizes that this may be a controversial aspect but emphasizes their commitment to creating a profitable business without resorting to random loot boxes and fear of missing out (FOMO) items.
The outcome of the ongoing legal dispute is uncertain and may impact the future of Dark and Darker’s early access release. However, for now, the game remains available for purchase. Ironmace hopes to make a return to Steam in the near future.
Ironmace’s Dark and Darker Released on Chaf Games Instead of Steam
Ironmace’s PvPvE fantasy game, Dark and Darker, has been released in early access after being pulled from Steam earlier this year. The game was made available on the indie gaming storefront Chaf Games and can also be downloaded from Dark and Darker’s official website.
Dark and Darker faced legal issues and was removed from Steam in late March after receiving a cease and desist and a DMCA takedown notice. However, Ironmace continued to distribute the game on Discord, and a playtest was held in April. The developer faced further trouble when Korean officials searched their offices on suspicions of possessing stolen game assets and code.
Following these events, Nexon filed a lawsuit against Ironmace for copyright infringement, prompting the developer to start a GoFundMe campaign to cover legal fees. Despite these challenges, Ironmace released a statement today explaining that they were unable to support Dark and Darker in Korea due to the Korean Game Rating Board’s (GRAC) delay in granting a rating.
Ironmace assured players that they were actively working on expediting the rating process and that they had already received ratings from other globally recognized game rating boards such as ESRB, PEGI, and CERO. They expressed their commitment to supporting and servicing the game in Korea as soon as the hurdle was overcome.
