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.

You can reach us over at for general emails and inquiries, and if you're interested in joining the Project Dark World team and contributing in some way, please don't hesitate to get in touch at

Our new website will launch this summer. Subscribe over at to show the team your support and to stay updated! You'll be notified the week leading up to launch, and the moment we launch. More updates soon to come, and we'll have new PDW pages coming soon.

Thank you for your support,

Hey can I use your assets for a digimon moba?…
Shadypenpen Featured By Owner Edited May 13, 2015
Congrats, though did you guys know that you and your project got featured in Siliconera?…

This is one superb way to promote your game!
Anixara Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2015
I've spent a bit wondering which character I would truly love to use, and I think I finally narrowed it down to my character Alice Stone.… I don't know how much info I need to add to the info, I can change it at any time!

But really I'm actually not sure what to do. I only found out about this contest earlier today (April 10th) and I am confused about how to submit anything. I haven't been really "On" deviant art for a while and forgot how to do almost anything.

And I'm pretty sure how I'm going about this isn't quite right... I sent a note but I feel like that isn't how it should be...

No worries, the amount of info is fine and you got the link to us in time. I submitted Alice to the gallery but was concerned you wouldn't approve it in time before the contest finished, so I reuploaded her instead - I hope this is ok!

Thank you for participating and best of luck to you Anixara!

Why not put u'r deviation of project proggress on the folder of the group instead of faving your own deviation? :iconpokerface3plz:

ProjectArkStudios Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2015
We had wanted the main focus of the group to initially be on the character contest. Can't see how it matters, but yes, progress will be posted over here from now on.
