As many of you may know, I’ve recently been doing a Let’s Play of The Long Dark by Hinterland Games. This captivating winter survival game has taken the masochist within all of us and brought it to the surface, pushing us to struggle in what’s probably one of the most satisfying yet difficult games of all times. With highly limited resources, you’re forced to move from scavenging to self-sustainment over the course of your gameplay, always trying to survive just one more day!
While this post isn’t going to be a review, I would urge anyone who’s interested in the game to go ahead and check out my The Long Dark Gameplay Guide playlist to see if it’s something you’d like to pick up, since it is currently on sale for 50% off over on the Humble Bundle website!
Something to help both the amateur and professional along the way though, is a bunch of maps that I recently found on the Steam forums. I’ve decided to mirror them here, since there have been a few times I’ve had trouble pulling them up. Keep in mind that i’m posting only the Spoiler Free maps here, but Whiteberry (@toarda, the original creator) also has resources annotated on another version which is available here! I’ve left the Forlorn Muskeg map off intentionally, since it’s currently incomplete and does not have a spoiler-free version.
Warning: Part of the experience of this game that makes it so unforgettable is the initial immersion of having no idea where you are, or what is going on. Using ANY map before exploring all of the areas will absolutely break that immersion. That being said, feel free to use them as you see fit!
