The Long Dark
Anybody played this?
I binge watched some gameplay videos on youtube and besides the unspectacular graphics, I was introduced to a pretty intriguing gameplay mechanics. From what I understood you’re dealing with a winter Firewatch walking sim + zombieless survival gameplay + rpg mechanics like looting, crafting and managing vital stats minus the level ups + some rabbit hunting if you’re in the mood + story mode if you like your paths linear and sandbox mode if you prefer creating your own story.
I watched the some early sandbox gameplay so I don’t know if story mode is close to an adventure experience. But I liked the aspects of the survival simulation (always watching on your body temperature, fatigue, hunger and thirst, gathering food and trying to preserve it, looking for a warm shelter during nights, building fires with scarce resources and survive from the wildlife of course).
I’d be happy to hear more insights from someone who played it.
