As if Darkest Dungeon wasn’t hard enough already, some of you just had to go the extra mile to play the game on a higher difficulty, namely Stygian Mode. It’s currently the toughest and most stressful difficulty level or mode of play in Darkest Dungeon. Stygian Mode comes with the hypertension-inducing obstacle of an 86-week time limit (in-game) and 12 maximum hero deaths.
Exceed those restrictions and the game will automatically delete your save file, no matter how hard you cry or take out your frustrations on the screen. So to spare your TV or monitors from anger-induced cracks, accepting help in the form of tips is a wise idea. After all, overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer.
