The Long Dark, the beautiful survival game is now officially available for SteamOS & Linux today, it has also been updated with Steam Controller support.
I guess I need to buy it now to test it out with my new toy then! Oh dear, just bought it.
It will be very interesting to play a survival game that's really about battling the elements, I wonder how lonely the game feels. I might have to write up some thoughts on it when my internet behaves enough to download it.
Talking about the Linux release, Hinterland Studio mentioned how they were internally testing it directly on SteamOS ahead of the release for us so hopefully it's seen plenty of polish.
While it's not finished and it's currently in Early Access, The Long Dark has been available for Windows since September last year so we've had a bit of a wait. Seems like it may have been worth it though, lots of early impressions on it have been giving it a promising outlook.
About the game (Official)
The Long Dark is a thoughtful, exploration-survival experience that challenges solo players to think for themselves as they explore an expansive frozen wilderness. There are no zombies -- only you, the cold, and everything Mother Nature can throw at you.
