Support for first-person post-disaster survival sim The Long Dark on Kickstarter has been overwhelming. Yesterday, the game was named Project of the Day on Kickstarter, and the number of backers swelled past 3,500. The final push is on in this, the final week of the fundraising campaign, and those backers have pushed Hinterland Games to the 60% mark of its financing target with 8 days to go. To celebrate this mark, and to hopefully encourage more people to back the game, Hinterland has released its first prototype gameplay video.
In this video, the studio’s founder and creative director Raphael van Lierop shows viewers how Hinterland has translated the clean, minimalist art style from our stunning concept art to 3D, as well as a look at the underpinnings of The Long Dark’s survival simulation gameplay.
