I don't see any thread on The Long Dark at all, so long overdue. Love this game, and the story mode will be coming out with the official release next month. I picked it up for $10 on the summer sale, but still worth the regular price if you ask me.
Rushed? It's been in Early Access since 2014 and they moved the story mode release date several times. I don't think they're afraid to move the release date in order to polish things up.I've been following this game for a while and looked in on it within the past month.
August 1 ?
That seems a bit rushed to me, I thought there were a few issues they needed to get sorted out yet - I hate to see something like this get pushed out just to meet a deadline.
Though this will be nowhere near the fiasco No Mans Sky was/is, rushing this could result in an unwarranted Black Eye to and otherwise really good looking game.
Really hoping this one works out well, they've done a good job to this point.
Don't misunderstand me, I really like this game.Rushed? It's been in Early Access since 2014 and they moved the story mode release date several times. I don't think they're afraid to move the release date in order to polish things up.
Not sure what needs sorted out. There was some grumbling in the latest update because there was a UI change, but I feel like that's what people do whenever you change things around in the UI. The sandbox available now is in pretty good shape, is it perfect? I dunno, probably not, but it certainly doesn't feel like it's in a bad place.
Am I reading correctly that there is a DRM Free version with this (HB Store version)?This shows $19.99 on Amazon right now. Is this the same game and version?
Edit: Looks like you can get 2x keys for $24.99 through the Humble Store:
This is different from the way the game worked previously, but if you go to the story / quest section it actually tells you that you need to prepare the rose hips from the crafting menu. This is more of a problem for the people who played in early access and who are used to how it worked before than it is for those playing for the first time.I made it through the first 5 days I think yesterday. Good start, though they changed a few things from the last time I played. I couldn't figure out for the life of me how to make the healing tea, finally found a post saying you had to go into the crafting area and prepare the rose hips first.
