Content Creators & Pitch Black Dungeon

We have a variety of Youtubers and streamers playing PBD! Featuring them here on the thread is the least I could do to thank their continued excellence and loyalty!

Pitch Black Dungeon Guide

I've created a guide to help people in understanding the changes and additions to my mod as well as providing them with extensive information and tips for surviving and succeeding.
Pitch Black Dungeon Guide


Pitch Black Dungeon requires that corpses are left on in the menu. Many elements of the mod will not work and may crash the game if this mechanic is turned off. For the full experience and complete stability, please keep DD mode enabled.

Make sure to compare the revision number in the changelog to the one that you are playing. If you intend to use this mod primarily, it is recommended that you disable updates until I have the mod updated to the newest build.

Donation Link Available

I’ve had a few people request that I get a donation link set up, and I felt that it might be a nice idea to follow through with that. I certainly won’t ask any of you for money, it’s just not the type of person I am. Downloading my mod and providing feedback is more than enough support for me. That being said, monetary support via donations are always appreciated. Thank you all for every download, donation, and word of feedback you provide; needless to say it’s incredibly motivational and supportive!
