The Long Dark August 28, 2015

In The Long Dark, you are bush pilot whose plane crashes in the Canadian backwoods after a mysterious geomagnetic disaster. It’s cold, and you spend the game surviving alone, looking for warmth, food, water, and other goodies until you die. And when you die in the game, it’s permadeath (your auto-save file gets deleted.) Understandably, this game feature ups the stakes for the gameplay decisions you make.

Rather than buying games, I enjoy watching gameplay video of them online. One YouTube series I watched on The Long Dark was hosted by an interesting and (necessarily) loquacious fellow. Below is his last episode in the series. (Too long, didn’t watch: it’s like The Parable of the Rich Fool, Luke 12:16-21) And yet, you might be surprised how it ends.
