What was originally Project Ark has now grown into Project Dark World. Due to copyright issues, the team had to move away from the Digimon aspect of the game and we are instead building our own world with original monsters and concepts.
Project Dark World will be the spiritual successor to the PSX game Digimon World. Our goal has been to essentially revive and build on the ideas and mechanics of the original DW game. The project is volunteer-based and a few of the original founders of Project Ark are still actively involved in PDW today.
The player is given a monster as a partner that they are responsible for raising, training and exploring the world with. The purpose is to raise your partner through their life cycle, explore the islands, and recruit other creatures of the Dark World to your city. We are using the Digimon World 1 mechanics to create a larger game using Unity for our engine.
