46 likes

Hello Hinterlanders,

Well, we're in the final stretch now! Less than 48 hours to go in the Kickstarter campaign for The Long Dark. 

This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but with...one more thing.

David Hayter Joins The Long Dark!

One of the most celebrated voice actors in games today, David Hayter is best known for his over fifteen year role as the English voice of the iconic video game hero Solid Snake, from Hideo Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid series.

David’s years of experience bringing the complex, multi-layered character of Solid Snake to life make him ideal for delivering the kind of deep, character-driven storytelling that players will discover in The Long Dark. We’re thrilled to have him join the cast!

In addition to his extensive career as a voice actor, David is a successful screenwriter, director, and producer, having written the films X-Men, X2: X-Men United, and Watchmen.

$225K!

We're so close to hitting the $225,000 mark for the Kickstarter campaign!! As soon as we do, we're officially unlocking the Downloadable Graphic Novel stretch goal. Onward to the $250K Extended Soundtrack goal! Woohoo!!!

PayPal!

For those of you who've been waiting to back The Long Dark using PayPal, you may now do so at our microsite: www.intothelongdark.com

We'll be combining the PayPal and Kickstarter totals for the next 48 hours to see if we can hit some of our stretch goals, so tell your friends and spread the word!

Add Physical Goods To Your Digital Tier!

We are happy to now offer Physical Add-Ons to backers of All Digital tiers. Simply send us a message indicating what Add-Ons you want to purchase, and your shipping address. We'll calculate the shipping, and then send you the total to add to your pledge.

Remember that backers of Physical Goods tiers can already Add-On any physical goods (and of course all backers can purchase Digital Add-Ons).

Survival Vignettes: How Far Will You Go to Survive? 

We've put together a video showing some snippets of the kind of choices you'll have to make in The Long Dark. Check it out, and if you like it, please share it within your network!

      Hey there Hayter.
      Loved you in Drive.

      Seriously, Drive > Drive. Someone needs to make more stuff come out of Steve Wang.

    2. Creator Nick Edsall on October 15, 2013

      Come on Guys we need that Extended soundtrack!

    3. Creator Jabberwok on October 15, 2013

      This game is starting to seem really creepy. In a good way.

    4. Creator Pilgrim on October 15, 2013

      Just imagine sitting infront of a campfire with Claudia Black telling you something. That would be super awesome.

    5. Creator Brett Schwartz on October 15, 2013

      Fantastic news!

    6. Creator Joshua Johnson on October 14, 2013

      so, now whenever you encounter a snake in game the main character yells "Snake? SNAKE! SNAKEEEEEEEE!"

    7. Creator Richard H (deleted) on October 14, 2013

      Just need Kevin Conroy and you'll be set to make a billion dollars. :)

    8. Creator Daracus on October 14, 2013

      David Hayter!!!

      (faints)

    9. Creator David Ross Watson on October 14, 2013

      Okay, now you NEED to get Claudia Black on your team to round things out (Morrigan from Dragon Age: Origins.)
      Come on! You know you want to ;)

    10. Creator LordCrash - OD | OOoE | WoOS on October 14, 2013

      Great update and nice shoutouts! That's why I love the indie scene so much. :)

    11. Creator Dara Robinson on October 14, 2013

      I think, first time around at least, I'd not walk on, eat it and open the hell out of that door :)

    12. Creator Hinterland on October 14, 2013

      Glad you are all excited about David joining us!

      @Martin: We're working on the logistics right now. We'll have them out before mid-December. Sooner, if possible.

    13. Creator ETD on October 14, 2013

      He needs to make a joke about having "phantom pain" in the game.

    14. Creator colorrr on October 14, 2013

      Great news, congrats! Now good luck making the game as awesome as the voice cast ;)

    15. Creator Mike Lacasse on October 14, 2013

      Snake? Snake?! SNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!!!

      The Phantom Pain's loss is our gain! Awesome news!

    16. Creator JayBrand on October 14, 2013

      Excited to hear David is on the team. I'm pretty sure that news alone should grab some new backers!
      Was sad to hear he was replaced in MGS, but not so much right now ;)

    17. Creator Kristofer Norén on October 14, 2013

      Coooool! \o/

    18. Creator 6R3ND3L on October 14, 2013

      Definitely a voice acting dream team, very excited.
      Great survival vignettes, look forward to more and the specifics of living in the outdoors and how food, water, shelter will be mechanically handled when you only have whats on you and your experience.
      :)

    19. Creator Martin Blass on October 14, 2013

      Glad to see this project is doing well... Just a question: When will the T-shirts be available? Sorry for being impatient... :-)

    20. Creator Jetro Koro on October 14, 2013

      Excuse my coarse language, but HOLY SHIT! This is like a dream come true! Welcome David!!!

    21. Creator Erik de Vos on October 14, 2013
