Survive as long as you can in a dark world where you encounter various enemies.

As you play the game, you are a scientist who somehow ends up in a dark area. This new world is dreary, and it seems like you cannot make it through. The goal of the game is to survive as long as possible. When the game reaches its end, you have to keep the scientist, Wilson, healthy and full. He also needs to be mentally stable after fighting some different creatures. There are supernatural enemies that you must avoid while playing as Wilson. These enemies will try to kill you.

One of the ways to add a little more action to the game is playing in the Adventure Mode. It adds more depth and interaction with enemies as well as ways to stay alive and defeat the enemies. Many of the graphics are 3D. The number of days that you stay alive will be displayed on the screen. This is how you keep track of whether you are surviving the game or not. A day and night cycle gives various activities. Explore the world during the day so that you can gather food and firewood. Your enemies will come out at night. Some come out during the day, but they are usually easy to avoid. Make sure you construct weapons from wood and other objects found during the day so that you have something to fight with. Three gauges are seen on the top of the head that track the health, hunger and mental stability.


  • Several ways to kill enemies
  • Hallucinations occur when mental health is low
  • Numerous ways to gather food and make weapons


  • Graphics are not good
  • Can be confusing with some of the attacks
  • You die quickly toward the end of the game
