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

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.

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog sometimes i like to know how long a game is too to gauge the value proposition, but that's easily obtainable information that does not require a review. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog and i use scores for that, not the bulk of the review. i know if a game is for me based on footage. that's all i need. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog the closest i get to reviews is a review thread on neogaf, and i only use that to confirm my own feelings about the game after seeing footage. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: i don't. one because i don't value some random persons opinion on something entirely subjective. and i like to avoid spoilers. (3 Hours ago)

    alimokrane @KORNdog: you don't read reviews? That's a lie and you know it! (5 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Damnit, I forgot. If you haven't read the manga yet, go read Berserk first. Otherwise, go to Slam Dunk. (7 Hours ago)
