DarkBASIC (a.k.a. DB) is a commercial game creation programming language released by The Game Creators. The language is a structured form of BASIC and is similar to AMOS on the Amiga.

The purpose of the language is game creation using Microsoft's DirectX from a BASIC programming language. It can create both 2D and 3D games using a lot less code than the equivalent program would take by using more powerful languages such as C++ due to the included libraries.

There are two varieties of DB: the original DarkBASIC (often referred to as DarkBASIC Classic) and DarkBASIC Professional (a.k.a. DBPro). Both run under Microsoft Windows only.
