The Long Dark is a thoughtful, exploration focused survival simulation set in the Northern wilderness in the aftermath of a global disaster. Brave the elements and other survivors, hunt for supplies, explore the world, uncover the mystery, answer the question: How far will you go to survive?
The Long Dark will first be released as a survival sandbox on Steam Early Access while the team completes the full story mode that they are working on.
Hinterland Studio is made up of an experienced team of people who previously worked at Volition, Riot, Bioware, and Relic. Notable voice actor (and screenwriter) David Hayter will be lending his voice to the game as well.

I backed this on Kickstarter last year and it sounds like they've made some major progress so I thought I'd share - I know there's a lot of these 'survival' games out there but the talent behind this and atmosphere/simulation aspects look to set it apart.
