The Long Dark shines light on Kickstarter


The Long Dark is now on Kickstarter, seeking $200,000 CAD from this pre-apocalyptic world. If it ever sees the light, the game will be the debut of Hinterland Studio, which was announced last week and is being lead by Raphael van Lierop, who was director on Relic's Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine and narrative director on Far Cry 3.

"The Long Dark is a thoughtful, first-person survival simulation that emphasizes quiet exploration in a stark, yet hauntingly beautiful, post-disaster setting. The breathtakingly picturesque Pacific Northwest frames the backdrop for the drama of The Long Dark," notes the game's Kickstarter page, which also mentions an episodic nature to the content.

Hinterland isn't just one man, though, it includes vets from Volition Inc., BioWare and Riot. The Long Dark is also being supported by the Canada Media Fund. If all goes according to the plan, The Long Dark is scheduled to descend us into lonely survival in late 2014.
