- When Color Selection Menu is open, the Item Tooltip window will not show.

Elevator
- Fixed some issues where you fall through the elevator.
- Fixed bug where you sometimes get stuck in jump animation when you land on the elevator.

Elevator rails
- Fixed rails to be correct design size, can now be placed in 3 blocks wide shaft.

NOTE - Currently placed rails can still be used without a problem but you will not be able to extend the track as the rails will not align. If you do not want to pickup and place rails again, you can always build a transfer station and place another elevator on the new rail.

- Fixed bug where units left on an item was reset to max when moving with Shift+click.

Keybinds
- You no longer have to remove a key-bind before you can assign it to another action. The old bind will now be cleared automatically, but if it was on a first bind, you will have to assign another key bind to the action, before you can leave the menu.

Despre joc

Crashed and alone on a world mankind tried to leave behind, Darkout challenges players to survive on Illuna, in harsh, procedurally generated biomes, utilizing the game’s sandbox features to build shelters, craft weapons, and research new technologies.

You are not alone. Light-sensitive creatures prowling the landscapes become most active at night and in a world shrouded by clouds the security of day will never come, instead, twilight periods allow players minor security to explore, rebuild, and gather resources.

Darkout’s deep history manifests itself through logs left behind by others, some recent, while others hearken back to long-extinct natives of Illuna, offering glimpses into what events led up to the pandemonium that now persists.

How will you survive?

Welcome to Darkout – Stage 1


What is stage 1?

Thanks to everyone’s feedback and a year of Beta the game is finally in a place which we can consider the base version of Darkout, Stage 1.

Review updated: Thumbs down.

Reason: dev does not intend to finish the game properly. Sadly that's a greenlight/early access speciality of devs. While the game is fun with the content so far see review below I don't intend to reward bad habits (like selling unfinished games) by recommending the game to anyone.

Dev goes on about act 2 etc. but updates indicate he's given up on this product or working on DLC
or episode 2.
If you don't wanna support this behaviour, don't buy this game.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Old review:
Had a fun time exploring the content of the game just after release. (31 hrs on record) Felt unpolished but the devs still add to the game and also Terraria wasn't quite finished after release. I'll be returning to the game once there's more content and the plot completed.

As you see on the pictures you explore a dark planet (as a stranded astronaut). Creatures spawn aggressively in the dark so you put up lights and build a shelter. You dig down to get rarer metals, craft better armors and weapons. You know the formula.

Looks and atmosphere are the selling point as the game is prettier than some of its competitors and feels claustrophobic in the dark depths filled with horrors. Despite being a Terraria-like the game has its own feel to it unlike say "Edge of Space" which I still find slow-going with a cumbersome control.

Concepts like electric wiring or rails aren't properly explained ingame but are fun once you figured out/read how they work.

Can recommend for a fun experience and will only become better over time.

There is quite a bit to say about Darkout. I'll try to be as non-partisan as possible.

With the explosion of greenlight games and the large number of 'Metroidvania' sandbox style games on Steam, it's hard to make one stand out from the rest. Darkout, like Terraria, or Starbound, takes yet another approach at these sandbox style games, but, of course, is still very much the same.

Indeed, Darkout is much the same old grind. Spending hour upon relentless hour, mining through piles of the same dirt, and rock, only to fill your inventory and discard, rinse and repeat. Just enough to get you the resources to build an elevator to reach the depths of the shaft you just dug. With the same old spotty mouse targeting as others, a horrible grouping system for mining, a terribly inaccurate crafting system, and a slew of other annoying bugs, it is tedious at best during these hours, searching for resources, and can often be a real chore, during these times, to play.

It has more base in sci-fi than others in it's genre, even more so than Starbound, only short of having a spaceship and being able to explore a number of alien worlds. With crafting devices like the Combinator, the Molder, and the Chem-Lab, weapons such as the Laser gun, and fusion based power devices, it's a sci-fi sandbox geek's dream come true. Coupled with a fragmented, yet deeply frightening storyline, and some absolutely dazzling light effects and much better graphics and visuals, overall, Darkout is a step ahead of the rest. With a fairly extensive research/tech/crafting tree and some fun and interesting exploratory and combat scenarios, heavily focused on the use of light, Darkout is, again, in a class of it's own.

A key thing to remember is that being another 'early release' title, or beta, at this point, the small Independent Developers, Allgraf ---- http://www.darkoutgame.com/ are slowly, but surely, diligently churning through bug fixes and adding new content for upcoming stages of the game, including more story, new monsters and biomes and of course, more craft items.

While I might not recommend it, at this time, for anyone who is easily frustrated, I am excited for the future of this great game, and can imagine recommending it to any player who enjoys this genre of game, and possibly even players who don't, upon the game's completion.

In short, after all of that, Darkout is an absolute GEM. Recommended? Definitely.

This game feels incomplete and broken, which is a shame because it shows a lot of promise. If it was an early access title and the devs showed more activity then this would be different. But as this is released as a "complete" game and there doesn't seem to be any improvement in the actual game or any idea when the promised features will actually be rolled out. The controls are broken and awkward and the graphics quality is inconsistent. In its current state I cannot recommend this, I really hope the devs manage to make some dramatic changes that are needed.

Another entry in the increasingly crowded sci-fi Terraria-clone genre. Anyone who has played Terraria will know more or less what to expect in this game. Procedurally-generated world, exploration, resource collection, crafting, etc. A lot of basic Terraria concepts and mechanics still apply. In particular, digging a "hellevator" (a mine shaft straight down to the magma-filled lowest levels of the world, with water at the bottom to break your fall) is just as useful in this game.

The things that are notable with this particular game:
  • Hi-fi graphics that capture much more detail than the pixelart graphics used in most Terraria-clones.
  • Lightness / darkness mechanism. The darker your surroundings are, the more likely that things-that-go-bump-in-the-night are to spawn around you, and the stronger these dark monsters are. Bathing these monsters in light will weaken them noticeably, Alan Wake style.
  • Loads of high-tech futuristic devices and set pieces to build your base with. Power circuits and switches to turn lights and devices on and off.
  • Multitudes of light-producing gizmos in various styles and colors to craft and decorate your base with.

My main criticisms of the game are a poorly-conceived main storyline progression system that requires random item drops, and a lack of minibosses to fight for loot drops. The game also seems to still be a work in progress despite not being in Early Access, so occasional bugs still crop up, the more common of these being inventory items dropping to the ground when you try to drag them onto the hotbar.

After playing Terraria pretty much to death, Darkout seemed to catch my eye the most. I guess I wanted to switch to a more sci-fi setting after dealing with bows and arrows for so long. I like the crafting progression, e.g. you don't use the useless torch the entire game like in some cases but move up to better lights. Also the user interface improves usability a lot in some cases. I love the AUTO feature, where you just have all the tools (axe, shovel, etc.) in your inventory and then the game automatically selects the correct one. I never realized how much of a useless chore it is to change between different tools manually. Also there are other nifty features, like opening two containers and moving stuff between them without actually having to pick it up yourself, etc. I also like that you can extract more valuable resources (copper, iron, etc.) from sand and stone (albeit not very efficiently, which is good for balancing reasons). Instead for having chestfuls of useless dirt and stone (I don't like to throw stuff away), you can simply chuck it all into the machinery and convert some of it to better materials. The game is not perfect, but I am having a lot of fun playing it. The most important thing is that they are still improving it. And the essential thing is that it's not alpha or beta or whatever that smells like early access. The game is done and playable as it is, so you don't have to wait forever for them to develop it and wipe your world in the process. I'm going to stop talking now and go play the game some more. Cheers.

- UPDATED! I no longer recommend this game, don't waste your money on it's current state!
Updated Introduction and Summary sections! -

[ Introduction ]
My opinion about this game WAS very ambiguous: I couldn't say if it was worth buying or not. Now that I sinked in more hours to discover what the game's about, I must label it as DO NOT BUY.
The current major version of the game is 1.2 and there's too many bugs (including game breaking bugs), story progression is broken, and there are many unfinished features.

Hopefully the review below will shed light on people that haven't bought yet and are looking for an unbiased review (I'm not an early supporter nor an early hater).

[ Overview ] :
This game is a cross of Under the Ocean and Terraria.
It's graphical style is very cool, with nice looking objects, equipment, armor, bases and world.
Also, a non-blocky-pixel-sandbox is a great change.
You're dropped in a planet that is very dark and the days are very short. The darker it is, the more frequent are monster spawns and some can even get tougher if you fight them in the dark (no worries on that, though, since your armors have lights - once you get some energy storage equipment).
Note: I have no idea why a human ship is orbiting such planet and no idea why you crash land in a pod there.
You discover the backstory through datalogs you find during exploration.

[ Positive Points ] :
- Tutorial gets you through the basics, enough to move ahead.
- Non-blocky-sandbox.
- 3D characters on nice 2D environments.
- Tech-tree and rich crafting system comprised of resources and components. Your tools, equipment and armors aren't made only of metal ingots - sometimes you need to make secondary components like rubber and silicon, or more complex ones like a dynamo or motor. It is a fresh and interesting crafting and discovery scheme with great potential.
- Diverse lamps, technology, power and wiring makes base building look cool and planning ahead is necessary.
- Digging/mining spread of 3 blocks or 1 block, toggleable.
- When crafting or researching, the craft/research system takes resources from inside storage containers, like barrels and closets, so you don't have an inventory full of resources everytime you want to do something - you just have to be near your storage.
- Some itens takes time to crafting or research, which feels better than "instant crafting" in this case.
- Elevators, hover-platforms, switches, rifles..technology - nice features.

[ Negative points ] :
- ANOTHER game that puts "Survival" in it's description and features no survival at all. If "surviving" aggressive mobs is "survival", so all the games that feature aggresive AI is a survival game? There's no need for food, water or sleep, which made me wonder what's the fun in "surviving" an alien planet in this situation.
- Technical-wise, the game feels like a beta. It seems that every technical detail was made to annoy the player. If you keep autosave on, it will interrupt your game abruptly and prints a big "SAVING YOUR GAME" title every time it autosaves, it's terrible. Graphics can't be tuned at all (except toggling 5 or 6 options). This makes playing on older machines really hard or even impossible. Also, turning off dynamic shadows breaks the (bad) lighting system. Last but not least, the game can crash everytime you try to exit it - in my case, forcing me to CTRL-ALT-DEL my way out.
- Lighting system is weird (radius/spread/emanation) and annoying for a game that tries to be beautiful. It also doesn't look realistic - underground, you have to put way too many torches because of it.
- Performance can be bad for no reason in many situations, leaving me to believe the game isn't optimized at all.
- Movement system is annoying. Even if you tap a button, your character starts running, which looks bad and can give you many fall deaths (combine this with poor performance and autosave, guaranteed deaths).
- The music, initially "Okay", gets repetitive and annoying really quick, and the sound-effects sometimes are awkward or way too loud compared to other effects.
- Backgrounds look very ugly and out of place. Also, you can break very deep cave walls, and the background is usually a plain blue color that may or may not emanate light.
- Resource gathering and base-building takes a long time compared to other games.
- Research system feels weird: you waste the same resources to research a new item that you would use to craft it (also investing research points). It feels like a relabeled leveling system for crafting.

[ Summary ]:
Based on the points above, the game feels unfinished and lacking heart, which makes it, currently, a DO NOT BUY title. Plus, the devs had the boldness to launch it with no "Early Access" label.
It would show potential if it was a beta, but it seems the developers think it's safe to say it's an 1.0 (1.2 actually).
Even for 10$, it's not worth getting in this: no one should launch an unfinished, buggy and broken game with no warning about it.
If the devs leave it in it's current state, this will just be forgotten.
For your current sandbox needs, go for Starbound instead - even in BETA it's more finished, polished and stable.

I've ditched many hours and still haven't found what the game is about.
Don't waste your time.
