The Long Dark might not be the first game you would consider if you were going to make a film adaption of a game, but thankfully YouTube user Jared Pelletier has envisioned how a film of the survival sim might turn out, and his efforts are nothing short of brilliant. Once you remember that The Long Dark is a game still nicely planted in Early Access on Steam, which means it is still far from complete and in an alpha stage, it clearly shows that the developers are getting the game across how they wanted to for adoring fans.
The Long Dark is a game which really does make the player feel isolated and alone, and the trailer to the unofficial and unreleased (it should 100% be released) film conveys the atmosphere of the game in film format perfectly, and makes us hunger for a full film to compliment the trailer.
The game can be purchased right now on Steam for $19.99, if you want to learn a little more on the game then take a look at my very own written and video preview which explains some of The Long Dark‘s main gameplay elements.
