The Long Dark Shows Its First Gameplay Footage

The Kickstarter hopeful The Long Dark showed its first gameplay footage today. The game is very early in development, but the video offers a good sense of what to expect from the game.

Much of user interface is placeholder in the video in an attempt to show how it works, rather than how it will look. The environment, however, is very close to what the final product will look like. In a game about survival, the environment is one of the most important assets.

The Long Dark comes from a small team of developers with experience working in games like Far Cry 3, God of War, League of Legends, Mass Effect, and many others. To learn more about the game, head here. With eight days left in its campaign, The Long Dark has received $116,793 towards its $200,000 goal.

  • A game of survival set in frozen wastes? Consider me sold.

  • Wow,alot of muscle under Hinterlands hood! consider me a supporter!
  • "Artsy" graphics aren't an excuse for having sub-par ones.
  • This game looks like survival done right.

  • This game looks really unique and interesting.  I really hope it gets funded because there aren't a lot of ambitious survival games out there right now.

  • I'm in.

  • interesting game, love how they take into effect the calories and temperature of your guy, looks like a true survival game, and that would be one of my fears of getting lost in the woods alone. hope this meets its goal, cause I will definitely try this out.

  • Backed!

  • oooh, so they made "the grey" into a video game, I gotcha. I wonder if liam neeson makes a camio?

  • I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing more about this.  Just a pure survival game would be an added game to the collection.

  • I'm sorry but this sounds really boring, and also really confusing. Why focus on extremely accurate survival simulation, but start with a premise that comes completely out of the realm of magical fantasy?
  • Very interesting title...will have to keep an eye on it.

  • sounds really cool but it's only for the PC so maybe later

  • Annoys me when folks say "I hope this gets funded."  Go and pledge $$ if u really feel that way.

  • Art style looks pretty cool.

  • Something unique, and fresh for the gaming industry. Two Thumbs up, cannot wait to see more. -GamerSnale
