      The Long Dark Sandbox **May 2017 Test Branch** [OPT-IN, FORUM PASSWORD, SPOILERS]   05/19/2017

      Hello community, 

      As we did with the December 2016 Sandbox Update, we are implementing a TEST BRANCH for The Long Dark's MAY/JUNE 2017 Update, FAITHFUL CARTOGRAPHER. This reflects the fact that we have a huge diversity of players on a variety of hardware configurations, and as a small studio we just can’t test them all! 

      The idea here is to provide an early version of the next update, about a week or so before we’d like to launch it officially in the Release branch (i.e. where you are currently getting it), so that we get some extra time to find bugs, crashes, and any other issues before it goes lives for the rest of our community. 
        >>> IF YOU DO NOT OPT-IN TO THE TEST BRANCH, YOU WILL NOT GET IT. I.e. You will not get the Test Branch build "by accident". This should help keep spoilers to a minimum. Here on Official Forums the Test Branch Discussion subforum requires a password to access. The password is: test_branch
      Some details. READ THESE CAREFULLY: 

      * The Test Branch is for STEAM ONLY. It is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. 
      * The Test Branch is full of SPOILERS. If you don’t want to see what’s in the next update, stay out of the Test Branch and all its discussions. 
      * The Test Branch is a tool for us to find issues with Work In Progress features. We’re primarily looking for feedback on bugs, crashes, and any major balancing issues. 
      * When reporting on bugs or issues, please use the appropriate TEST BRANCH sub-forums on Steam and in our Official Community. DO NOT DISCUSS TEST BRANCH FEATURES outside the Test Branch sub-forums. Those posts will be moved or deleted. 
      * When reporting on bugs or issues, please use the posted bug submission procedures. This will help the development team filter the feedback, eliminate duplicates, and in general ensure we can act on the feedback in a more timely fashion. 

      Our hope is that this new Test Branch process will allow us to ensure we can continue to put out stable Sandbox updates well into the future. 

      We’re very hopeful that the people who choose to opt-in to this Test Branch will approach this as a way to help ensure the updates are as smooth and stable as possible, and not use the Test Branch discussion as a forum to lobby for or against certain features or content. 

      As always, The Long Dark is a community-informed, not community-driven, project. We look forward to enlisting your help in identifying whatever issues we’ve missed in our own internal testing! 

      For more details, please check out the TEST BRANCH discussion forums [SPOILERS!] http://hinterlandforums.com/index.php?/forum/81-test-branch-spoilers/ (See password info above for access)

      Thank you! 

      The Hinterland Team

What is the 1 thing you enjoy most about The Long Dark?

I can't narrow it down to just one thing, but I can attempt to summarize why I enjoy the game so much:

"Starvation, wolves, deadly unpredictable weather."

Love this beautiful game so far, Devs, great job! Looking forward to the forthcoming update and new ways that the game can kill us! 8-)

Regards,

Gibbon

Atmosphere.

That's the word I was looking for! I just couldn't get it yesterday... Atmosphere, not charisma.

As we say in Dutch: "Het lag op het puntje van mijn tong". Literally translated: "It was on the tip of my tongue". Meaning as much as knowing what you mean but not quite being able to put it into words. :)

1st thing I enjoy in this game is realism.Coz when playing this game,there are only reality stuff.Real life events,real life decisions...everything in game is happening just like it could in real life.Ok,there is some adjustements,which are normal for game,but overall...I sometimes I feel like I"m playing my real life adventure.And it is so easy to "fall into" the game.Many times I for real feel surprise,I can feel fear,discomfort in several occasions.And there is always present some tension in the air.Presence of danger can be felt in every step you make.So many times I feel tingling all over my back down and I can feel my single hair straight up for real,lol.It is not horror game,but the fact is,that real dangers can be more horrifying than any horror movie.

Al game aspects are realy made so perfectly,that can give to player real feeling of cold,fear,lonelyness and desire only to survive.All details in game are planned in that way,to show as much reality as it can be shown in a game.

So,yes...1st thing I realy enjoy in TLG is definately similation with reality.

Independence. And the second thing is sandbox play with three difficulty modes to choose from.
