Update 19 -- First Screens of The Long Dark!

Posted by Hinterland (Creator)

Hello Hinterlanders,

In anticipation of revealing the first gameplay footage of The Long Dark next week, we thought we'd start the weekend with a little tease of what's to come. 

Here are three screenshots from the current prototype build of The Long Dark, which should give you a sense of how we're translating the art style you see in the concept art, to 3D.

We're 11 days away from the end of the Kickstarter campaign for The Long Dark, with about $95K left to raise. We hope that seeing these screens excites you, and gives you a reason to spread the word about The Long Dark! With your continued support, we can hit our goal. But we're all going to have to work together to make it happen.

And remember, the secret to growing a great #survivalbeard is simple: stop shaving.

      I have to agree with everyone else, I'm really liking the art style and would love to have them wallpaper-sized.

      @Alex: I can't seem to find an exchange rate for earth dollars :)

      This is looking really good! Nice job! I hope you will make this Kickstarter, would be a shame if THIS of all the projects out here would fail.

      Absolutely gorgeous; was honestly not expecting anything quite this unique. Pledge upped.

      I mean visually, not mechanics-wise.

      Hey, that´s looking really great! I like this Comic-touch, hope, that´s really how the final game is look like. Can´t wait and I´m looking really forward to this!

      That's looking very nice. I do beg that you make the aurora realistic, though. They're majestic and alien enough as is; hamming them up would just distract and detract from the experience.

      I'd like to also say I'm pleasantly surprised your 3d visuals actually approximate the exact "look" of the 2d concept art. On first glance I didn't even realize they were screenshots (I saw the pictures somewhere else before seeing this blog post). Very interesting.

      I think if you guys post any more updates in the next three days, before the game play footage, you should immediately post a comment to the update explaining again that there will be footage posted on the 7th, I swear no one reads the comments or previous updates at all.

      @alex: Like the update posts says, next week!

      @Jesse: That's the feeling we want to evoke in all of you. Glad it's working!

      We're glad you all seem to like what you've seen so far.

      Gorgeous! And very glad to see it has kept the character of the concept art that is all too often lost. I'm really impressed. And it makes me want to explore. :)

      Any chance we'll get to see some gameplay in the near future?

      Nice art style, also what's up with this new like feature on Kickstarter, this becoming facebook? :P

    15. Dara Robinson on

      Looks great, cant wait to see the footage :)

    16. Hinterland Creator on

      We'll release the screens as wallpapers soon!

    17. Alex Cruise on

      I will bump my pledge by at least FIVE EARTH DOLLARS to get 1920x1080 copies of these images. :)

      First screenshot as wallpaper please!

      Any chance of larger screenshots? I want that second one as my new wallpaper lol

    20. Michael Heald on

      LOVE that first screenshot!

    21. Stephen Reid on

      Shame they're not bigger!

      I'm actually sort of surprised - I probably skimmed an update or two, but I didn't realize the art style in-game was going to mimic the concepts. I'm glad, it'll be interesting.

      Looking forward to in-game footage - don't leave it too late!

      Those screen shots are awesome and if the whole game looks like that, it will be amazing. I really love the style you are after, keep up the great work.
