Our videos of The Long Dark

The Long Dark has been available on Steam Early Access for a little while now, but since we sadly never got any answer from the dev team, we finally decided to buy the game on the very first day of the Steam sales. As you probably know, The Long Dark is a survival game in which you have to fight against the unforgiving weather and the local fauna to stay alive as long as possible. Only the sandbox mode is available for the moment, so all you can do is freely explore the open environment, loot everything you can and see the next day. A story mode will be added in the future, which will definitely add some incentive to play the game if you're anything like us. Indeed, as promising as the game looks in its current state, it needs more than mere survival to make it truly appealing to us in the long run. Now if you're into survival games, go for it, Hinterland Studio's title has a superb atmosphere and it manages to convey an incredible sense of loneliness and despair.

Where it all began... and ended
New day
Let's keep exploring
Day 2

Out of the first person survival genre, this is the one that interests me most. Hope to give it a go sometime, nice to hear it stands out.

My love for snow environs in games makes me want this bad.

    asdfg @KORNdog: Cinematic foliage. :) (32 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog The foliage looked like it was "running" at about 5fps. Looked weird as hell. (2 Hours ago)
  • asdfg
    asdfg Combined with open world. (3 Hours ago)

    asdfg @Moonwalker: Agree about the jungle, was what looked best. Also agree about the foliage moving looked weird. But gameplay, characters, voice acting, shoehorned upgrade system, it's so generic. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @asdfg: Some parts looked really good. Like when it morning comes and how the jungle looks. But the way foliage moves is odd though. Wish it was like Uncharted 4,haha. (4 Hours ago)
