The Long Dark To Begin Fall 2014
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Hinterland Studio recently announced the successful completion of a Kickstarter campaign to fund The Long Dark. The studio managed to surpass its $200,000 (CAN) goal to raise a final total of $256,217 (CAN). The game will feature a storyline set in a post apocalyptic future in which players must struggle to survive the aftermath of a geomagnetic storm responsible for the destruction of North America's technology infrastructure.

"We're thrilled by the overwhelming support we've received from fans, backers, and press over the 30 days of our Kickstarter campaign," said Hinterland founder and creative director Raphael van Lierop in a statement.

"We couldn't be happier. We have nearly 7,000 incredible supporters at the heart of a growing Hinterland community. It's been an intense time, and the team deserves a rest, but we're ready to get back to working on the game. Expectations and anticipation couldn't be higher. We're focused and determined to create something that lives up to those expectations."

The Long Dark is a first-person post-disaster survival simulation, set in the aftermath of a geomagnetic super storm that has destroyed North America’s technology infrastructure. In the first season of this episodic series, players experience this grim new reality through the eyes of bush pilot William Mackenzie, isolated with other survivors in the Northern wilderness as a result of the event. Gameplay emphasizes exploration to gather resources and knowledge about the world, while mastering a deep survival simulation to overcome the myriad natural and man-made hazards of the new frontier. Players will also face difficult moral choices that will affect the outcome of gameplay, story, and ultimately, the course of humanity’s recovery.

Hinterland estimates The Long Dark will ship in Fall 2014.
