The Long Dark is a beautifully rendered first-person post-disaster survival simulation set in the Northern wilderness. It can be argued that a storyline that has been missing in the post-apocalyptic onslaught of game titles is a realistic world not filled with zombies, mutant creatures and other fantastical monsters – The Long Dark iooks to be more in the line of say a Cormack McCarthy novel, The Road, or David Brin’s, The Postman.

The images and prototype gameplay footage look beautiful. 

The Long Dark is another successfully Kickstarter funded game, raising $256,000 CAD, above its goal of $200,000. Notably, the Kickstarter campaign has surpassed 2 of its 4 stretch goals. The first for a downloadable graphic novel, and the second for an extended game soudtrack. 

About the Game (from the Kickstarter Page):

The Long Dark is a thoughtful, exploration focused survival simulation set in the Northern wilderness in the aftermath of a global disaster which destroy’s humanity’s technological might in an instant. Brave the elements and other survivors, hunt for supplies, explore the world, uncover the mystery, answer the question: How far will you go to survive?

If you’re a fan of atmospheric, exploration-focused games like Fallout 3 or STALKER, you’ll love The Long Dark.

The Hinterland Core team is:

Raphael Van Lierop – Titles include Company of Heroes, Warhammer, and Far Cry 3

Alan Lawrance – Saints Row 1-4, Red Faction, Descent: Freespace.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
