Blazing Star = Darkest Dungeon

I see what you did there inXile Entertainment, you clever nerdy dogs you, and I love you for it.

For the people that does not know.
Blazing Star is an item, that you can use to either light up and get the first attacks, or dim the light and get more gold/rewards.

However fluff text on the abilities are quotes from Darkest Dungeon, which has a similar mechanic, more light, less challenge, less light, more reward.

The way is lit. The path is clear. We require only the strength to follow it.
Sorry could not find a youtube video for that quote, but trust me, it is in both games.

It was a tie-in that we did with Tyler and the great crew over at Red Hook Studios. Glad you picked up on it!
