Monday, 7th October 2013 16:13 GMT By Dave Owen

Hinterland has released the first gameplay footage for The Long Dark, its first-person snowbound survival sim. The video clip is narrated by Raphael van Lierop, and shows the different methods of survival against the game’s frozen settings, as well as how to battle wild animals such as wolves

The Long Dark is currently on Kickstarter, asking for $200,000 (CAD). At time of writing it’s on $116,973, with 8 days remaining. Hinterland is comprised of developers previously employed by Relic, Volition, Riot, and BioWare.

If all goes well, the first chapter of the game is due for release on PC, Mac, and Linux in October 2014

Thanks, Eurogamer.

    Oh dear, please get rid of that voice. Or please get someone who isn’t doing a Christian Bale impression. I’m beyond sick of those faux gloomy orphan bastards.

    Your parents are dead, so now you have to sound like a cunt? Fuck right off.

    Still really want to play it though.

    You’re welcome YZ!

    The law of cuntitude clearly states that if you are not Clint Eastwood, and you do not naturally sound like Clint Eastwood, but you are in fact a grown ass man, and you try to change your voice to sound like Clint Eastwood, then you are in fact a cunt.

    Same goes for that cunt from Watch Dogs. He needs to lighten the fuck up. You’d think wreaking havoc on an entire city’s digital infrastructure would at least put a little spring in his step, but no. That’s a cunt, too. That guy is a double cunt.

    Fuck me look at the top two Youtube comments. Jesus fucking Christ these are the people that Kickstart stuff then?

    Its almost as bad as the backers complaining to WayForward about suggestiveness in Shantae. Wayforward. Suggestiveness. Shantae. Jesus Fucking wept.

    These people have the power to ruin games. At least share-holders don’t give a shit about the quality of the end product.
