Imagine the lights go out, never to return. Bright aurora flare across the sky, and all humanityâ€™s technological might is laid to waste, neutralized in a kind of quiet apocalypse. Everything that has shielded humanity from the disinterested power of Mother Nature is suddenly wrenched from us, dropping us a few links down the food chain. Food and water are scarce. The roads are no longer safe. And winter approachesâ€¦ Welcome to The Long Dark, the inaugural title from Hinterland, a new independent game studio comprised of veteran developers from the triple-A game industry. Hinterlandâ€™s core team have collectively worked on over 40 triple-A games on console and PC, and are now turning their talents to creating an independent gameâ€”an immersive survival simulation for the PC.
