I'm not a fan or early access games, or "paying for beta testing games" as I would call it, but after a recommendation, I bought the survival game "The Long Dark
" which isn't a finished game yet.
The game play works basically like this: Without a lot of tools or supplies, you get thrown somewhere randomly into the Canadian wilderness during Winter, and you need to survive. You mainly fight against hunger and the cold, and sometimes also wolves, but that's it already.
I don't have much time for playing games, but this type of game still fits quite well into my gaming habits: I usually die pretty quickly in this game. The best I've done so far was surviving for about 4 days, I think. And although the game isn't finished yet (there is only the sandbox mode available, the game will apparently contain a story as well once finished), it is both fun and frustrating at the same time.So far, I can recommend the game, especially if you are interested in learning how much nature sucks. :)
