For those looking to be genuinely challenged throughout their Roblox play throughs, the anime RPG Deepwoken may be what you’re looking for. Reminiscent of the notoriously difficult action-RPG Dark Souls, Deepwoken utilizes permadeath features and, most notably, a variation of the infamous humanity system. As mentioned by fans, it’s not for the faint of heart. To learn more about Deepwoken, including its plot, game mechanics, features, and more, continue reading below.


Taken from the experience’s launch page, the official developer-made description for Deepwoken is as follows:

Deepwoken is a difficult game with permanent character death. Losing characters is a part of the game that should be expected. Seek out your destiny upon an unforgiving sea and unravel the mysteries of a dying world. Discover and modify powerful abilities, find unique strengths, and develop your character into a force to be reckoned with. Desperately try to escape the horrors that lurk just beneath the waves. Whatever you do, it’s your story to be told.



While the way in which Deepwoken is played through is dependent on the user, there is a plot that can be followed at any point. NPCs can be found around Deepwoken’s map that will give numerous quests, items to help your character grow in level, and hints as to where enemy locations can be found. Following along these quests will take the player through the experience’s main plot, though there is so specific order or time period in which these quests must be completed.

Deepwoken utilizes both a linear narrative and an open-world exploration style to allow each player to create their own story. Users can also play through aspects of Deepwoken more than once, so no two play throughs have to be the same.

Permadeath feature

As mentioned earlier, Deepwoken utilizes a permadeath mechanic, meaning that players have two lives, followed by one redemption life in The Depths. The third life in The Depths is given as a final resort to players who have died twice in the normal Deepwoken world—this mechanic is similar to that of Dark Souls, where players are transformed into their Hollow Form after they die and given the chance to consume a humanity item in order to return. In order to return to the surface in Deepwoken, players must escape The Depths without being killed by the deep-lurking monsters.

If players are killed in The Depths, their account is fully wiped, with all previous Deepwoken save data being removed from their account. Upon spawning back in, players will be level one and have to restart the entirety of the experience from the beginning.
