When the weight of modern life is crushing down on you, why wouldn’t you want to take it back to basics? Survival games are all about getting yourself fed, building a storeroom, and filling it with more food—or running into somebody else’s house and stealing their stuff. You’ve gotta appreciate the simplicity of it all. Whether you’re a hunting and gathering newbie or 1,000 hours deep and looking for a new game, we’re here to tell you all about the top survival games so you can find your next addiction.
With under 5 days on its Kickstarter campaign, our partners at Hinterland Games need your help to make The Long Dark a reality! We're excited to have The Long Dark Official Wiki at Gamepedia. If you're a fan of survival games, this is definitely the game for you! The Long Dark takes place after a global disaster that wipes out electricity and features beautiful, stylized artwork!
Comprised of industry vets, Hinderland Games' The Long Dark is a first person survival game set moments after a disaster. You play the role of William Mackenzie, who's left stranded after your helicopter crashes in the mountains. Do you have the survival skills it takes to keep going? You'll be challenged daily in The Lone Dark! Be sure to back them on Kickstarter with one of the awesome reward tiers available! $1 CAD makes you a successful backer, $20 CAD grants you a digital copy of the game for Mac, Linux or Windows, $40 CAD includes beta access, and starting at $55 CAD, you can own physical copies!
