The Long Dark, a single-player survival game about surviving the cold of 'The Quiet Apocalypse' from Hinterland Studio is having a big sale to help fight against the spread of COVID-19.
Until March 31, Hinterland have put The Long Dark on a 60% off sale with all of the revenue going to the United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization.
"This urgent moment calls for urgent global cooperation," said Elizabeth Cousens, President & CEO of the UN Foundation. "And we need everyone – across all sectors – to work together. I am grateful to Hinterland for contributing to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization. Their donation will help make sure health workers on the frontlines have the tools they need to prevent, detect, and respond to this pandemic."
Quite a good survival experience, certainly nothing like other games which a very slow pace and a lonely but thoughtful atmosphere that really forces you to scavenge like you've never had to before. It's also great that it's focused on battling the elements, rather than some sinister force like Zombies. Instead, you directly face the cold and wildlife across the frozen wastes in the aftermath of a geomagnetic disaster.
Wonderful to see more developers use their position and status to help others, like what Ndemic Creations did when they donated money from Plague Inc.
You can buy The Long Dark with 60% off until March 31 on the Steam store.
