DARQ manages to bring a breath of fresh air without ever going to far.

Darq has some frustrating stealth encounters and an overabundance of jump scares, but those small blunders aren't enough to take away from the sense of wonder that comes from helping Lloyd navigate his nightmares.
Darq is an intelligent puzzle game with a delightfully dreary setting that is over far quicker than you want it to be.
The game offers players some decidedly remarkable moments during the three hours required for completion

While there are moments where the spookiness clicks, like its hectic climax, the rest is forgettable. It will give a fright once in a while, but that shock quickly disappears.
Darq is a beautifully stylish, Tim Burton-esque romp through the subconscious dream-world of a young boy which manages to be spectacular even with a very short length. The minor niggles here and there are easily ignored thanks to a great tone and a great amount of polish for the first effort from an indie studio.
Even if it may take you quicker than an afternoon nap to dust off, Darq is an experience that horror fans won't want to miss.
