The Long Dark

The Long Dark (Sandbox Alpha) is available for Early Access on Steam.  This survival game is set in the Canadian wilderness and there are no zombies in it!

Going into this game, I had no experience with survival genre games, and hadn’t played many hours in any first-person games, yet The Long Dark quickly became one of my favourite games of all time.  The game’s world and gameplay are incredibly immersive, and the art style inspires me.  I was hooked as soon as I began playing, and I took a lot of screenshots too!

This is an indie game, developed by a Canadian company called Hinterland Games.  The developers continue to improve and expand the game through regular game updates, and they’re open to feedback from the community of players.  One of the most impressive things about the game is how stable it is, despite being in its Alpha stage.

The Story Mode isn’t available yet, but the Sandbox Mode is fully playable.  I cannot compare The Long Dark to similar games, but I can tell you it’s unbelievably fun and addictive!  I highly recommend this game.

You’ll be able to read more about my experiences with the game in future posts, and you can check out my screenshot gallery to see some of the beautiful sights I’ve seen while playing.
