Tired of perusing joy and success in your gaming? Have we got the game for you! Gloom: Digital Edition is a dark, macabre game where your goal is to make your family as miserable as possible while bringing joy and good fortune to your opponent's families.

In Gloom: Digital Edition, you play a series of morbidly humorous negative Modifier Cards on your family members giving them negative Self-Worth points. Such tragedies as "Being mauled by manatees", "Swindled by salesmen" and "Menaced by mice" are "good" for you. And, you play positive Modifier Cards on your rival's family giving them positive Self-Worth points. Good fortune such as being "Delighted by ducklings", "Found fame at a feast", and Blessed by the bishop are "bad" for them.

Additionally, you can play Event Cards to cancel turns, bring characters back from the dead and other meta things. Finally, when you're "happy" with your family member's collection of negative points, play an Untimely Death, shuffling them off this mortal coil. When an entire family has met their demise, you total up the points. The family with the most negative points wins! Well, if you can call that "winning".

3 issues I find annoying. Could get 5 stars if fixed. I love gloom.

I like solo games, but so far it feels like all the bots attack you while helping each other, making it 3 on 1, no logical ai attacks on each other. You could have no points, and the bot attacks you when another bot is way ahead.
It’s very easy to accidentally play a card when you just want to read it, hurting yourself.
Unable to rotate to other horizontal orientation to use my case as a stand.

Other than that, I love gloom, and this could get 5 stars from me.

Huge fan. Please fix your multiplayer!

I’ve always been a huge fan of the game. I was super excited to see you bring it to iOS. Thank you! But when my wife and I play , at some point she gets disconnected from the game and there’s no rejoin option ? We are using the newest iPad, good connections. Very disappointed:( I’m glad I paid for this and don’t want a refund. I want my money to go towards improving your game. Keep at it and fix it so we can resume online connections!

Fix rotation please

The game works fine, but on an iPad, the screen is rotated 180 degrees from the default landscape orientation that any iPad user with a case expects, and there doesn’t seem to be any way to fix. It’s a small thing, but it’s annoying enough to cost a Star.
