  1. Welcome! It's great to see new faces around here sharing their love of The Long Dark.
  2. Welcome to the forums! It's always great to see a new survivor.
  3. Lazy is perfectly fine. I live in a small city called White Rock which is basically a suburb of Vancouver Canada.
  4. I'm (slowly) working through the Doris Kearns Goodwin's book A Team of Rivals about Abraham Lincoln. I also just got Neil Gaiman's Norse Mythology from the library so that'll be what I'm reading because it's due back in two weeks.
  5. Environments in The Long Dark are inspired by the majestic Canadian wilderness. We’d like to highlight some great Canadian National Parks you can visit to experience nature in a less virtual way. This week, Fundy National Park. Photo: Andrea Schaffer Located on the Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick the park features a rugged coastline which rises up to the Canadian Highlands. It gets the highest tides in the world and has more than 25 waterfalls. One of Canada’s smallest National Parks it covers an area of 207 km2 along Goose Bay. Despite being one the nation’s smallest National Parks @FundyNP is home to a wide variety of animals, including moose, black bears, beavers, coyotes and many more. The park helps to protect important ecosystems. Photo: Parks Canada Fundy National Park was designated a Dark Sky Preserve by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. This means that the park is dedicated to preserving pristine views of the night sky for stargazers as well as wildlife who also rely on the darkness.

  6. Welcome to the forums @DerpyLemon115 . Hope you enjoy your stay!
  7. That's a great screenshot, that probably took a lot of time to make! Great job @piddy3825 !
  8. Thanks for joining us and it's great to hear that you're enjoying the game. We hope you get as much out of joining us here as you clearly do playing the game!
  9. Hi Zachary! Welcome to The Long Dark & Hinterland's community! I'll try to take a look at your story. It's great to see people getting inspired by the game and taking their experiences and creating something new with them.
  10. Ha ha. I just spent a bunch of money on a backpack. I think that if I bought an MRE right now my wife would be quite annoyed with me. Tinned sardines, however, they're not that bad.
  11. You're all living much more adventurous lives than me! The closest I've ever been to an MRE, or a situation that required an MRE, was playing The Long Dark.
  12. Welcome to the forums! This is definitely the best place to be to hear about The Long Dark right from the horse's mouth.
  13. So many to list... My go-to is Elevator Action. It's a really fun game, simple but well designed. There was a Dexter's Lab version of it on GameBoy Advance awhile ago that I liked a lot.
  14. Welcome to the forums and we're glad to hear that you've been enjoying The Long Dark.
  15. Welcome. I'm always happy to see people making the move from Steam.
  16. Welcome! Great to see people making the move from Steam.
  17. Let’s keep the ad hominem attacks off the forums. We can disagree without being snippy. Thanks.
  18. Calm it down a bit people. No need to fight. Closing thread as it’s already off the rails.
  19. That's good feedback. We were wanting to get something out before the end of Friday and the immediacy of Twitter clearly made that possible. However going forward when we do these we'll do our best to ensure that the forums have their say. In our view the forums are our primary home for interactions with players. In terms of the answers, well we're glad you're debating them here. Thanks for starting this off @EricTheGreat12!
  20. Alright! This was super brief, but we got a bunch through Twitter. We're still refining this process, so we'll try to give you all more time to answer in the future, since we want to have a variety of sources. (Apparently not everyone has Twitter). Until next time I'm closing up the ol' Milton Mailbag.
  21. We're looking at doing a Q&A Mailbag type feature here on the forums on a semi-regular basis. If you have a question that you'd like to ask @Raphael van Lierop answer then ask it below*. If you've got a suggestion for what to call this feature, throw that below too! * We'll select a few questions to answer selected from this thread and other places.
  22. Those are great! Did you do the drawings as well as the animations? Very cool.
  23. Deleted a few posts for using a turn of phrase that has an unsavoury historical context.
