KRAFTON will draw on its experience bringing global gaming IP to mobile audiences with the adaptation of the popular dungeon adventure game

SANTA MONICA, CALIF. – Aug. 24, 2023 – KRAFTON, Inc. announced it entered an exclusive licensing partnership with IRONMACE to develop a mobile adaptation of DARK AND DARKER, the popular first-person dungeon escape game. 

In DARK AND DARKER, competing players enter a mysterious and foreboding dungeon that is littered with powerful gear, valuable loot, and an array of monstrous threats. In order to survive, brave dungeon divers will need to explore, gear up, gather treasure, and ultimately escape, all while fending off threats from creatures and other players.

Drawing from its expertise in transforming global gaming IPs for mobile audiences, notably the colossal success of the complementary PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS with PUBG MOBILE titles, KRAFTON sees DARK AND DARKER’s innovative fusion of battle royale survival elements with dungeon crawler exploration as a perfect fit for its catalog. 

“We’ve been watching DARK AND DARKER’s potential and distinct creativity with great interest,” said Rafael Lim, Senior Head of Publishing at KRAFTON. “From the genre to the setting of the overall IP, DARK AND DARKER tapped into something compelling with its existing PC release. Here at KRAFTON, we can’t wait to share these exciting dungeon runs with a whole new community of fans on mobile.”
