I saw people were joking about this being the first survival game to ever come out of Early Access on Steam. I thought that was pretty funny, and not far from the truth it would seem. I think the only notable exception that I saw was Don't Starve.
I played ~30-40 hours of The Long Dark during the Early Access period and really enjoyed it. I've always been interested in wilderness survival and I do a lot of solo backpacking and stuff like that, and the mechanics of this game felt very plausible to me. It's also a beautifully handcrafted world they have made, with a very unique art style.
Is anyone else going to try The Long Dark and the new story mode, now that it's out?
I would love to see a Breaking Brad series or similar feature on the site, I think that could be a lot of fun.
