The Long Dark

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hinterlandgames/the-long-dark-a-first-person-post-disaster-surviva

Hey... you know how Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat lost a bit of soul by moving away from freedom and exploration; and how the original game's creators left GSC and made a linear shooter. Now, here are finally people who get it.

The Long Dark is a first-person survival game made by a team of professionals and inspired in part by STALKER. I won't repeat their pitch — just go and read all the wonderful things they wrote on their Kickstarter page.

Hope it'll be as much of a shooter as a survival game. Apocalypse without fighting is lame.

piqued my curiosity; there's plenty enough of post-apocalypse shooters out there to last for everyone, this feels more reminiscent of 'UnrealWorld' and 'Robinson's Requiem' than S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

come to think of it; I've only found 'Robinson's Requiem' and 'UnrealWorld' to be true survival games, which should be a genre in itself, if you ask me

I'll throw these guys a bone (or some $$$) and see what happens, thanks for the heads up

Looks like something taken from the movie The Grey.

Finally pledged. My credit card expired, and getting a replacement from a foreign country takes a little while.

Here is what the Kickstarter pitch says about this:

"Encountering other survivors can be a risky proposition, but this is not a game about shooting or thoughtless killing. Combat is rare, and highly lethal."

And from a recent interview:

"What makes The Long Dark different is that it’s more Jack London than George Romero, inspired less by American urban survivalist fantasies and more by a Canadian frontier that remains untamed, where man is not the real monster, but another of nature’s potential victims."

Personally, I don't much care for the shooting part in Stalker. It is all about exploration and atmosphere for me.

Indeed, if stalker was just about shoot to kill, then it wouldn't have been nearly as interesting, I feel. Unfortunately you need to cater for all sorts of tastes for a game to be popular, something which stalker got right in my opinion.

They are going for a pretty unique look there.
