Mother Nature breaks her foot off in your arse-organ!

Game: The Long Dark

Mandatory US Disclosure: The developers sent Pedro a key.

Get ready for a Linux Busted Ass Early Access Show about, you guessed it, a first-person survival game with crafting elements on Steam.

If that sentence alone wasn’t enough to send you packing, I shall then tell you that you’ll need to pay 20 wet stinkies of your local space currency or $21.99 if you’re up in Canadia. That’s right! If you’re Canadian and you want to play this Early Access game which takes place in the Great White North, then you’ll need to shell out a premium.

“But Pedro, that’s because the Canadian dollar is worth less than the US dollar!” – I hear you say. The €uro has been pricier than the US Dollar since inception and you don’t see a lot of games pricing themselves accordingly, do you?!

To address some of the things I didn’t know about in the video or I simply forgot to look up before-hand:

  • There are currently no plans to make the game Multiplayer in any shape or form, according to the devs;
  • It runs on the Unity engine, version 5
  • They say the game will be in Early Access until they “launch the full Story Mode game in 2015”, it’s probably safe to assume that’s going to be delayed a bit.

As usual, be sure to leave your hints, thoughts, allegations and things better left unsaid in the comments.
