About: The long dark is a beautiful sandbox horror game. It is about a man (you) who has crashed somewhere in the Canadian forest. This forest is freezing, full with multiple animals who want to hunt you down, and it is very pretty at the same time. It is a simple game about surviving. You can find houses, food, weapons, first aid kits and much more. At the same time you also have to monitor you calories, if you are dehydrated, and other things such as blood levels and if you are in shock. It is a very realistic survival game.
Here are some Pros and Cons about the game;
-Very realistic survival
-Survival System that makes it feel even more real
-Amazing for an Early Alpha game
-No bugs that I have seen (so far)
-Only few enemies so far
-Lose calories to quickly (I had to eat seven cans of tuna to stay alive one day)
-Easy to obtain all content in game, makes it boring quickly
-Story mode not working (Because of Pre-Alpha)
-A little to expensive for the Pre-Alpha
That is what I think about the game, but here are some screenshots that shows you how it looks:

Here is a small video I made, showing the graphical bugs, how the survival system works, and the food system. Please enjoy!
Is it worth buying? Where can I buy it?
This game is sold on an online gaming platform called Steam. It costs 20 US dollars. It is definitely worth buying if you are into scary survival games with a new horror at every corner. The reason why I would wait to buy it is because it is in Pre-Alpha. This means that the game is not finished yet so you can not play it to its full potential. So with this game I would wait if I were you, but if you are like me and have to get your hands on the amazing, horror survival experience. Than you must buy it.
On Thanksgiving I will stop to give thanks that my family is safe and healthy, especially because I realize that, following the tragedies of this year, it is all too real a possibility that they might not have been.
