The Kickstarter for The Long Dark, Hinterland’s first-person, post-disaster survival simulation, has ended, surpassing its $200,000 goal with $256,217 raised thanks to 6,966 backers.

“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 episodic first-person sandbox survival experience set in a North America after a disaster is slated for PC, Mac, and Linux in October 2014.
