The Long Dark, a game of survival

Described as a "a first-person post-disaster survival simulation set in the Northern wilderness", The Long Dark sounds like an intriguing and unnerving experience.

It's a thoughtful, exploration focused survival simulation set in the Northern wilderness in the aftermath of a global disaster. Brave the elements and other survivors, hunt for supplies, explore the world, uncover the mystery, answer the question: How far will you go to survive? If you're a fan of atmospheric, exploration-focused games like Fallout 3 or STALKER, you'll love The Long Dark.

Games like this tend to overwhelm players with minutiae of survival--purifying water, disease, malnutrition--that make for a lot of realistic boredom. Let's hope they get the balance right! [via The Verge]
