YMMV / A Dark Room

Go To

  • Demonic Spiders:
    • Soldiers. Good god, soldiers.
    • Feral terrors even moreso. They've got the same attack power, and attack twice as often.
  • Scrappy Mechanic: There is an event in which a fire may burn down one of your civilization's huts, wasting all the wood you used to build it and reducing your population cap until you rebuild it. For an unlucky player, this event may happen multiple times within the span of minutes.
    • Plagues. As soon as you have any medicine stockpiled and enough villagers, you might get an event where a plague hits your village. Unless you have five or more medicine (in which case you expend five and lose between five to ten villagers), the entire village dies. Again, the unlucky might see this happen repeatedly within minutes.

How well does it match the trope?
