Can you Survive Alone?

In The Long Dark you will have to use the light and heat produced from fire because there will be no electricity to help you cook, see, entertain yourself and all of the modern-day normal activities. Food will be a problem because in The Long Dark Demo you have to find food yourself, no Walmart markets to shop from, but rather animals from the forest to hunt! Yes it does seem a bit scary, but what if? That's what the game is about, what if, you where alone, out there...Having a gun in The Long Dark Demo is awesome\

Surviving in the long dark is no easy taskSomething more about the game

In The Long Dark Demo you will possibly encounter hazards and probably will find some other players in the game, now you can act by being friendly but you can never completely trust anyone in the game. He can steal your food and run away at any time. That is why you will have to be a man of your own and don't trust anybody. Survive alone in the extreme environment and if you can stay alive until the long dar ends, you'll be able to live in the light, under the light of the sun. You can back up the game in the developer's Kickstarter campaign.

You will also have to be careful when making decisions, in The Long Dark Demo every decision matters and can mean the difference between death an life! So stay sharp!The Long Dark Demo Screenshot

Other things to keep in mind while playing the long dark pc demo:

  • Balance your resources and never overuse them
  • Always have a fire and some wood close to you, disaster can stuck at any time
  • Never over evaluate your navigational skills, you can get lost easily
  • Never trust an AI survivor before you get to know him, they can always hurt you if you are not smart

So guys I hope you like this little review of The Long Dark Demo! You can actually download this demo from the link above and install it in minutes. So if you want to play the game simply download The Long Dark Demo and start surviving, if you can of course. I bet you do!

    I tried downloading it, but it said before I could play I had to put in a code or something…What’s the code!?

    1. 01/01/2015 at 3:28 PM

      You have to complete 1 free survey to get the activation code. Once you get the code you can activate the game, otherwise you wont be able to finish the installation and play the game.

      Hope this helps 😀

        can an 11 year old kid play this game?

        1. 09/19/2015 at 7:22 PM

          The game doesn’t have a PEGI rating yet but I will list the “bad” things in the game bellow for you!

          – Has a dead body but with clothes and not degraded, it is like someone sleeping.
          – Wolves do attack you and this might be scary for an 11 year old

          Apart from that there isn’t anything else disturbing.
          Hope this helps!! <3

    Did all the surveys but didn’t get an activation key. 🙂 Could you help me out John Granval

    1. 05/06/2015 at 2:26 PM

      Can you tell me which county you are from so I can verify?

        05/14/2015 at 11:21 AM

        Which country? Australia

        1. 05/15/2015 at 10:09 AM

          I had no survey completions from Australia that day, you must try and complete a survey to be able to activate the game.

            05/17/2015 at 10:03 AM

            I followed the instructions, It has allowed me to download the demo but to start the game I need an activation key. Which wasn’t given to me. I’ve tried the surveys again, but now its not allowing me to do them. Its weird that I did the surveys but it was telling you that there was nothing from Australia that day. What do I do next? I would really like to play this demo because I am considering in buying the game but I would love to test it out first.

    Thankyou for all your hard work.

    1. 05/18/2015 at 10:28 AM

      What’s your email address? I haven’t received any email from you yet so can’t send the link. Thanks for trying to complete the survey again btw.

    I have used two private email accounts, I have put one into the email section.
    There must be something I am doing wrong.

    1. the first thing it asks me to do is to download the activation key/ on this website –
    2. Then it says to complete one of the two offers below. either something to do with mcdonadals or a shopping voucher.
    3. then after completing that it directs me to a page with sliver, Gold and Platium offers. it asks me to complete one of these. that’s what I did.
    4. It redirects me to another website where its says activation key.
    5. I click on it and it says ‘This offer has expired’

    Im not sure if im doing anything wrong,
    I might of used another name like Maddie/ Madison/ Maddi
    Sorry to bother you though, im sure you are a busy man. 🙂

    1. 05/18/2015 at 9:36 PM

      I saw your completed offer just now, let me know what your email is and I’ll send you what you need. Sorry for the inconvenience.

      Check your spam folder, I used a disposable email address and included a link so it probably got filtered.

    1. 07/27/2015 at 2:15 PM

      I have looked into this and there isn’t any problem, it must be a problem from your part.

    It Says That it Was unable to install java when i tried to run it ?

    1. 08/02/2015 at 2:24 PM

      Hmm well it shouldn’t require java to run normally, don’t know why it told you that. Try downloading again and maybe it’ll be ok. Really sorry Jada!

    The link for “surveys” to get the activation key always lands on sides, where I have to pay to proceed to get the key for the supposedly free demo. I have tried several times and wasted a lot of time. If I have this kind of trouble with a simple demo I don’t want to know what kind of hoops I will have to jump through to get the actual game working. Sorry, but the game is now off my wish-list.

    1. 10/02/2015 at 11:54 AM

      I am sorry you had such trouble, the surveys are usually free to complete but it depends on the country. If you email meat admin* I will send you a special link with no surveys.

    I’ve completed all of the offers and still haven’t gotten my key code. Please help?

    1. 10/20/2015 at 11:45 AM

      I cannot see any completions from you ip. Please try again and try to complete the survey through and after you do that wait a minute or two to confirm. If you successfully complete a survey and you don’t get a key please email me and I will provide pre-activated version of the game!
