Game description

Darkout is a sandbox action-game with survival and strategy components. You are the only survivor after your escape pod crashes on a strange planet. The environment is full of mysterious and hostile shadow creatures, and the only way to survive will be to gather resources used to craft and researching new weapons and technologies.

The world is sunk in permanent darkness and the shadow creatures surrounding you are only sensitive to the light, and plays a key role in the battle against the dark. You will have to use your strategic skills to build up new facilities which will allow you to progress further and explore the vast landscape. Darkout brings a completely new experience to the player, frenetic, distressing and graphically far superior to what has been seen before in the sandbox genre.

Stunning but a dead game


A game which could've become so much more but the devs abandoned this game. They promised DLC's but none came. For a mere ?3.30 you'll get maybe 20-30h of fun gameplay but don't expect more.

An inspired game from Re-Logic's Terraria..


Darkout is an interesting experience and has a sandbox / survival efficient side but it need some originality and draws too much competition (Terraria). In addition, the interface is messy and the gameplay is repetitive which heavily puts down the gaming experience and may alienate the less patient players. A title that is primarily addressed to the players who are used to the genre.

Very fun adventure game


This game has a very atmospheric storyline as well as its art style. The graphic looks very beautiful for an indie game. In addition, this game offers a very detailed crafting systems for players to craft gears as well as a deep technology tree for players to unlock. One interesting aspect of this game it uses light and dark mechanics where monsters gets stronger in the dark and weak when there is light combine with a sandbox element where you have to build and survive similar to Terraria. Overall, a very fun sandbox adventure game similar to Terraria and Starbound.
