Veteran Game Developer makes Immortal Darkness: Curse of The Pale King Free-to-Play for PC

Game developer and publisher, Giant Space Monster has announced a free-to-play PC Edition of its dark fantasy dungeon crawler, Immortal Darkness: Curse of The Pale King is now available for download via its website.

Originally published in November 2018, The game is the last creation by game development veteran Chris Shrigley of Giant Monster games who plans on retiring from the industry.

He has had over 40 years of experience in the video game industry, that is right, from 1983.

The game, an epic, dark, atmospheric dungeon crawler, populated by fiendish traps, puzzles and vampires, was originally released in 2018, and has been updated and released as “freeware” for the Holiday season. 

To mark his retirement, Chris has not only decided to remove the game from steam which he believes is his best and most complete work but is giving the title away for free for anyone to play.

“We wanted to let more people play the game, and so in the spirit of the Holiday season, we decided to make it available to everyone to download and play for free. It’s our gift to gamers everywhere, and we hope people enjoy playing the game over the Holidays.”


Chris originally chronicled his development of Immortal Darkness as a blog series on Gamasutra.
