The fact that you're on the verge of death does not mean there isn't time for romance. In Dark and Darker Playtest 4, players will most likely discover some delectable candy hearts as they explore the winding caves and catacombs the game offers. Here's how to use your Heart Candy in Dark and Darker.

Dark and Darker Zones to Use Heart Candy
Candy Hearts act as a unique currency, though it is supposedly limited to the Valentine's Day event, which players anticipate will be an annual, ongoing event. You may use Heart Candy by clicking on the Merchants tab at the top and going to a new merchant named Valentine, which resembles Saint Valentine.
Merchant Valentine has a slew of high-powered items, all of which appear to be purple with multiple suffixes and attributes bestowed upon the wearer. However, Valentine tends to sell about 25 Heart Candies per item sold, which means you'll need to extract a few times with Candy before plowing.
Ironmace, the creator of Dark and Darker, appears to be willing to include several holidays with various events. The Alpha 3 playtest, which took place in late December, found users searching for Candy Canes, and Alpha 4 brought about the Valentine's Day event that has users searching for Heart Candy — all of this ends up back in the dark sooner or later.
