The Long Dark promises to be an interesting take on the survival game genre with an "original" art style. It does look pretty good, and the final version will be on Linux. I'm not sure what's original about it exactly, but that's what the developers call it. It looks much more like a Team Fortress 2 styled Rust given how colourful it looks.

There are a lot of survival games out now, but luckily Linux is still a bit under-served in this genre, so it could be a good one for us when it's out.

There are no zombies as the developers say they are going for a more "realistic" take on the survival genre. The game has two modes a sandbox that sees you battle it against the elements and a story mode, so it will certainly be interesting to have a survival game like this with a story.

About
How Far Will You Go to Survive? Imagine the lights go out, never to return. Bright aurora flare across the sky, and all humanity’s technological might is laid to waste, neutralized in a kind of quiet apocalypse. Everything that has shielded humanity from the disinterested power of Mother Nature is suddenly wrenched from us, dropping us a few links down the food chain. Food and water are scarce. The roads are no longer safe. And winter approaches… Welcome to The Long Dark —an immersive survival simulation set in the aftermath of a geomagnetic disaster. Experience a unique first-person survival simulation that will force you to think and push you to your limits with its thought-provoking gameplay and mature storytelling.
