The Long Dark, 4 Days of Night
I was drawn into The Long Dark well over a year ago when I found the game by Hinterland Studios on Steam. The game is a sand box survival game set it the far north Canadian woods. The game designers have been working towards a story mode release but in the mean time have opened up their world for us to explore and survive. The game is really fun and has beautiful graphics, I often find myself exploring out of the way nooks just to see what it looks like.
I plan on doing a more involved review once the story mode is released but since Hinterlands Studio is doing a special Halloween event for the next few days, I wanted to take a few minutes and let everyone know about the event. From October 28th - November 1st, the sun will not rise in the game. You will attempting to survive in the arctic cold of the great north...with no day time!
The patch note also mention demon wolves...but I haven't run across any of those yet. To help the players out the game light sources last longer and you can find fall/Halloween themed food that will help you stay warm and ward off the demon wolves.
I know it is a short event and game designers may not do it again until next year or they may not do it again at all. So I encourage everyone who has played this game or thought about playing to give it try this weekend and check out the special event.
Have fun and I will be playing as well!
