If you like survival games, we have a suggestion for you: The Long Dark. The game is in its preview version, but it’s already one of the most popular games on the Xbox Store. The Long Dark is an exploration-based survival game that challenges players to think for themselves as they explore an expansive frozen wilderness.

In this game, you can rely only on yourself. If things go wrong, there is no one who can help you as you are totally on your own. You need to constantly monitor your condition, search for life-saving supplies, and master survival skills like fire-building, gear maintenance, hunting, fishing, and landmark-based navigation. Learn to decipher Mother Nature’s signs so that extreme weather conditions doesn’t catch you off-guard. Stay alert as dangerous wildlife can attack you at any moment. Protect yourself against bears and other animals by crafting weaponry.

The Long Dark sends you straight to the harsh cold environments of Canada as you fight to survive as long as possible:

Imagine the lights go out, never to return. Bright aurora flare across the sky, and all humanity’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 approaches…

The Long Dark is in the game preview stage but still costs $19.99 to buy. Since the game is still work in progress, it may or may not change over time and may not even release as a final product, so be aware.
