The Long Dark Theme Song?


Recommended Posts

I was wondering, because I have the time to think about this, if you could choose one song to be the unofficial theme for The Long Dark, what would it be? I gave

I like Starsets' Point of No Return, because I feel like there are plenty of times where I am going to do something, and I either succeeded or die, but I have no other option. So I feel the song catches that emotion I feel as I'm braving the blizzard for food, or taking on a wolf because it was in my way. The lyrics in the beginning of the song really coincides with lore behind the game.

What do you think? Do you agree, or would you choose something else?

Here's my attempt:

Come and listen to a story about a man named Will,

Crashed on a mountainside with barely any health bar filled.

And then one day he was lootin' some dead dude,

And luckily for him he was now more aptly tooled.

Survival this is, bitter cold, Reishi tea!

Well the next thing you know ol Will he spots a bear,

The screen warning said "Will move away from there!"

It said "danger thin ice is the place you ought not be"

As he loaded up his bow and he shot a nearby tree.

Survival this is. Ice fishing pools and sometimes stars!

Well now its time to say good bye to Will as dark sets in.

And the dev's would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin in.

You're all invited back again to this locality

To follow on the story of unlucky Mackenzie.

Astrid too, that is. Play a spell, Freeze your nuts off!

Y'all come back now, y'hear?
