Great game with simple concept
29 July 2019 | by mathieudufaultSee all my reviews

When I heard about this game I was very skeptical to pick it up. When I found out the only obstacles in this game were, a couple of animals, the cold, and resources, I thought it sounded way too simple to be in-depth and challenging. Oh was I ever wrong. This game has a great survival mode and plenty of environmental storytelling and exploring. Though lack of enemy variety worried me the wolves actually are a very fun enemy to encounter as I've experienced many great moments seemed to be ripped straight out of Hollywood, where for example, you're in the dark with a dim lighted lantern and their is wolves growling around u from every each direction and all u have is a rifle with few ammo to spare. Moments like these were the highlight of the game for me. I was also worried the cold would be a burden as it would deviate me away from exploring but it wasn't too bad especially with custom difficulty where u can tweak certain elements such as how cold it is. The story mode to the game is very good for a small indie company and I am sure that I will spend many hours in this atmospheric world that Hinterland Studio created for us.
