It’s been a few weeks now since Red Hook Studios unveiled Steam Workshop support for their Kickstarted, gothic roguelike, Darkest Dungeon. While the crowdfunding campaign was hugely successful it fell just shy of the $350,000 mod support stretch goal. Thanks to the success of early access and their dedicated community, the studio was able to move forward with their plans for mod support anyway.

Since the announcement, the modding community has been hard at work creating new characters, tricked out trinkets, and visual overhauls. And yet I can’t shake the feeling that something is missing. There is an opportunity here that everyone seems to be overlooking. Clearly, it’s time to correct this oversight.

Seriously, why hasn’t anyone done this yet? Aren’t things dark and foreboding enough already? Let’s lighten up the mood a little with these adorable little savages. It’s probably pertinent to mention that I have zero modding abilities so this is more of a whimsical musing than anything.

If you’d like to try your hand at modding, Red Hook is encouraging everyone to join the Darkest Dungeon Steam Workshop Group. The devs have also released a handy modding guide to help get you started. Now that I’ve planted the idea, I’m looking forward to seeing an adorable corgi hellhound skin hitting the workshop soon.
