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.

From this point on we will expand on the universe, Biomes, Gameplay, Items, etc.

We currently have 3 more Key stages planned and will reveal all the details of these plans as we develop the game further, not unlike our predecessors in the Sandbox genre.

In-between the stages we will also have some mini updates as needed :)

Stage 2 – 4 will contain
  • More Story
  • Why are you here and what is really going on? All this will be revealed as Each stage contains a new act for the storyline
  • More Biomes
  • Underwater Biome, Sky Base, Feral Jungle, etc
  • An End Game
  • Fix the Ship or Illuna? Only time will tell
  • More enemies
  • The Penguin Drones
  • More bosses with each Stage

Сюжет игры построен на борьбе света и тьмы. Весь игровой мир погружен во мрак существами тени. Оригинальное графическое и звуковое оформление. Множество рецептов крафта, от деревянных убогих построек и оружия каменного века - лук и меч, до высокотехнологичных - различные механизмы, лазерные винтовки и аккустический бур (все перечислять не стану). Нельзя сравнивать эту игру с такими как Minecraft или Starbound, ведь нельзя же сравнить те же Цивилизацию и Герои меча и магии (они обе пошаговые стратегии, но это совершенно разные игры). Есть жанр стратегия, а есть песочница, но игры одного жанра не всегда можно сравнить. Darkout игра, отличная от других игр того же жанра со своими особенностями и всеми плюсами и минусами довольно интресная песочница в 2D мире, в которой вам приходится выживать и выполнять различные квесты, развиваться на техническом уровне, обустраивать свое жилище различными приборами, создавать себе оружие, броню и инструменты для борьбы с тварями появляющимися из тени. Красивое оформление текстур обычных блоков и текстур деревьев, растений, цветов и всего что окружает - радует глаз, а музыкальное оформление не давит на уши и меняется в зависимости от местности.
Из минусов игры только то, что она до сих пор разрабатывается и дополняется, присутствуют некоторые баги и редко вылеты на рабочий стол. Однако это совсем не мешает наслаждаться игровым процессом.

Если вы не любитель жанра песочницы - покупать не стоит, и уж тем более писать потом безграмотные обзоры на такие жанры, которые самому не нравятся или надоели...

Для любителей же выживания в открытом мире и игр этого жанра - очень даже рекомендую.

Игра имеет приятную графику: когда земля обрастает кустами и вокруг них начинают виться светлячки картинка становится волшебной.

Довольно много рецептов для крафта, поделённые на технологические уровни. Всё и сразу получить не получится: изучение стоит очков исследований, а часть рецептов вообще придётся поискать в мире.

Пространства подчас настолько большие, что копание в земле или бег до интересного места утомляют, особенно когда за плечами антиграв, а на теле хороший броник.

Враги не отличаются особым разнообразием, а с повышением технологического уровня и изобретением новой экипировки прекращают приносить неприятности.

В итоге: Хорошая песочница с симпатичной графикой и утомительной копкой.

Отличная игра, на данном этапе нехватает возможно только копператива.
Выглядит игра довольно чудно, травка везде растет как на дрожжах, враги по началу давят очень неплохо но в дальнейшем все становится легче.
Со старбаунтом или террарирей тут ничего нет общего, кроме того что жанр песочница.
Крафт осмыслен и ресурсы под самым носом не валяются. Кроме конечно мест где полный Пи, но туда сложновато попасть и надолго не задержаться.
Но самая главная фишка игры это свет, чем его больше, тем проще находится в трудных местах, где темные силы явно преобладают.
Вообщем, если вам нравится крафтить, строить всякое, разбираться в эл. цепях и нравятся отличные виды и игры-песочницы:Берите!
з.ы. Всегда думаете своей головой и сочитайте разные мнения, будь они плохие или хорошие, для вывода своей точки зрения :3

Сразу что бросается в глаза это красивые деревья и растительность.
Ещё здесь довольно интересна система света и тьмы (собственно это основная составляющая основа геймплея) монстры в темноте неуязвимы и их надо для начало осветить ,а потом бить их мечём.

Интересна но пока не очень доделана система крафта, а точнее появление новых вещей для крафта. За всё что вы делаете, копаете, добываете в игре дают некие Очки разработки, за которые потом можно будет исследовать новые предметы (что бы что то начать делать для начало это что то надо исследовать) или расшифровывать капсулы и изучать чертежи(которые тоже надо будет сначала исследовать). Так же тут есть уровни технологии что бы повысить этот уровень необходимо делать исследованные предметы хотябы в одном экземпляре за это у вас будет увеличиваться розовая полоска в самом низу экрана, когда она заполнится вы получите новый технологический уровень ( и вот тут косяк, а именно для получения нового тех уровня нужно не просто заполнить розовую полоску но и сделать квест, а т.к. я не сильно разбираюсь в английском то я не все квесты понимал и делал, и какого же было удивление что при перезаходе в игру тех уровень всё равно увеличивался, а квесты потом не выполнялись).

Вообщем играть всё равно интересно, если не понимаете англиского в инете есть русская вики по игре.

UPDATE for the 1.3.1 release. This review initially covered the 1.2.9 official release and the 1.3.1.x beta. the 1.3.1.x beta has been rolled into an official 1.3.1 release set with no current active beta as of 12/26/2014

Warning, long read but I tried to touch as many major points as I could yet still be "brief".

Reviewing the 1.3.1 patched version of this game.

This is important to know because the game, while "officially released" is only complete through phase 1 of 4 as of patch 1.3.1. This game is a fully functional sandbox game from an exploration/building standpoint, but is only partially complete from a story line perspective as well as feature implementation.

So, with that said. Would I recommend this game? As the game stands today, in general, yes I would recommend this game under the following circumstances:
  • you get it on sale.
  • you don't mind that you may need to enable beta patches to get new content and bug fixes temporarily until the betas go full release.
  • you don't mind waiting for story line content as the developers continue to code away and some things may very well get dropped from their "complete" game when all is said and done.
  • you can live without multiplayer, at least for now.

If those don't apply to you, I would suggest you wait until the game is more complete, if it ever is as there is some indication that development may stop before this hits 100% completion on all 4 phases.

With that set of caveats out of the way and if you are still interested here are my thoughts on the game:

I really like this game and I really like the unrealized potential this game has. While it could end up being a real stinker long term, I am happy with my money investment (got it on sale for like 75% off) and won't feel ripped off if this is not developed any further. Some of the bugs are a bit annoying without the beta patch to fix them and there is not a lot of guideance in the game so you have to piece things together from game play and what little info you can gleen from the wiki and forums. The building mechanics are pretty decent and I never really felt the game to be TERRIBLY grindy, although it does have some grindy elements as most sand box games do.

Here are some pros (what I love) and cons that I personally feel the game has at this stage:

What I love about the game
  • The developers are still involved in the game and add features based on feedback in the forums.
  • The developers have been releasing new beta fixes and release level patches every few months.
  • The Sci Fi theme as I have been a SciFi fan for a very long time (nearly 40 years)
  • The devs are involved with the community and respond to suggestions and bugs if you join the forums.
  • The graphics and music are engaging. Just check the vids and pics for the game to get an idea of what I am talking about.
  • The concept of light as a strategic game element is used in a rather cool way that I have not been exposed to before.
  • The game offers a pretty decent challenge to newly created characters in normal mode.
  • The game has a story line that is intriguing to me, although it is incomplete at this time so it is more of an intro to the story line than a fully realized story line at this point.

Current cons, which hopefully will go away as this is developed
  • No mapping system. There are tools to work around this a little bit (gps and radar), but if you like Terraria's mini map (I do) then this will be a dissappointment for you as well.
  • Incomplete story line as mentioned before. You basically get an intro story line and then it just abruptly stops as the content is not complete.
  • some minor placement bugs with wiring and devices. with 1.3.1.2 I have not run into anything game ending, but prior to that patch level, there were some that would cause game crashes.
  • NO MULTIPLAYER. While I love the single player experience. I have corrupted my daughter into being a gamer and she cannot enjoy this game with me like she can Terraria so that is a big disappointment for both of us at this time.

In summary, overall I have enjoyed roughly 200 hours of play time in this game with 3 different characters. With the final character I have exhausted the story line as well as all of the extra "diary" entries you can find that give you a view into happenings for the lives of others who came before your character. I am happy with my money investment and would recommend this for casual single player enjoyment.

The first impression I had after looking at Darkout’s screenshots: it’s beautiful! Actually playing the game proved that screenshots didn’t lie: Darkout is by far the most beautiful game in 2D sandbox exploration/building genre, and while I believe that graphics isn’t that important, great graphics like this certainly adds to enjoyment.

Graphics aside, Darkout has decent crafting and building system; there is a fair (but by no means spectacular) selection of decorative items to craft, and some interesting features, like research system or necessity to connect most advanced work stations to your base’s power grid.

Overall, Darkout has interesting early to mid-game. Finding resources and progressing can be quite challenging, as even early enemies can be deadly when you are poorly equipped, and environment itself can present hazards like long falls or deadly tar pits. As you progress through the game, however, the challenge diminishes, not increases: while you start encountering stronger enemies, their strength increase doesn’t match your stronger weapons and armor, and eventually even hardest areas become a walk in a park with late-tier sword and armor.

Aside from drastically diminishing challenge, as you keep playing you will eventually find Darkout rather lacking in variety: there are only 3 surface biomes, not counting very small and very empty coastline biome, and flying islands biome that looks the same as surface jungle biome (other than being composed of flying islands, naturally). There are several different underground layers, but only major difference between them is the music and what kinds of resources you can find there. Also, there is only one boss, and it can only be fought after a rather long questline.

In the end, despite its flaws, Darkout is a good enough game, and if you are a fan of 2D sandbox exploration/building genre, Darkout will likely give you many hours of enjoyment.

My playtime says approx 5 mins but I have been involved with Darkout since shortly after its conception.

I have some advice for those thinking about purchasing this game:

1. Turn around

2. Run the other way as fast as you can

Pros: A really decent soundtrack by Daniel Sandowski.

Cons: Everything else.

I was on the early testing team and have followed this game since LONG before release.

At this point the "studio" is running on a skeleton crew because all of the reasonable people jumped ship

Development wise, this game has been a nightmare obviously. It is also worth noting that it has been a nightmare ethically. I backed this game on kickstarter; I have yet to recieve the rewards promised. In addition, the developer will not return my emails. Inquiries into these matters resulted in my being permanently banned from the Darkout forums, as well as from the Darkout Steam discussion boards. Many other people have had a similar experience.

When they finally did release, they intentionally did it on the same day as a similar title called "Starbound", with the strategy that Darkout would not be early access like Starbound, and therefore Darkout would outsell Starbound. Needless to say, this plan failed miserably and backfired into a train wreck. Most of the promised features (including core ones like Multiplayer) were left out, and it was later revealed that they would not be implemented at all. The small community surrounding the game shrank even further as many bans were issued for questioning the ethics and development capability of Allgraf (the developer of Darkout).

There is an extensive reddit thread detailing the experiences of one individual with an employee named Lazaek

You can find it here:
http://www.reddit.com/r/darkout/comments/1wp951/dear_dev_your_community_wanted_help_and_to_help/

The developers continue to ban anyone who questions the game or speaks badly about their experiences with it. I cannot recommend this game by any stretch of the imagination. I hope this review will assist you in your decision to (or not to) buy Darkout.

If you like crafting, survival, gathering, exploration and sandbox games, then you should enjoy Darkout. Graphics are pretty decent for this sort of game, and the atmosphere has a special feel, its not redundant or boring. Some areas are pretty and colourful while other areas are dark and creepy. You start off simple, gathering and crafting things, trying to survive shelter, weapons etc.. Soon your little shed may end up being a huge complex mining base or a well fortified outpost. So there is a sense of progression and satisfaction which I love very much. If you are still hesitant about the game, wait for a sale :]

The game is good and I thoughly enjoyed it but the lack of content and the major lack of progress is quite painful since it has so much potential. Games like this are what give early access a bad name. looks very nice and has a good vibe but at the current price you will feel ripped off buying it. it is not a complete game and i doubt it ever will be. im really on the fence if i should give it a positive or negative, and to spite the fact it really doesnt deserve it i will be giving it a positve review since i got it on sale and for the short period i played it really was quite fun.

Game launches, there you can see some menu choices, (un)check some boxes, create character, world, etc (very poor customization, btw).

But when I finally hit 'start game' (kidding, there's no such menu option (and no 'new game' or so either)) all I see is some blurred loading screen. Then I hear music, sound effects and get OpenGL message “too many errors” with link to some nvidia troubleshooting page. Doesn't matter if you click 'yes' or 'no', it closes the game(which works just fine in background, though, besides graphic part - you can walk, interact with objects and so on). Obviously, you can't play the game when all you see is some error window.

I Tried to update drivers, change resolution, effects and other stuff - game seems to don't give a damn about this.

There's no solution or troubleshooting discussions in community hub and developers "main Darkout forum" isn't very user friendly so I didn't found any info there too.

So. What can I say about this tricky situation? Game is unplayable in this state(at least, for me) and I recommend you spend your money somewhere else.

P.S. Intro movie is one of the worst I've ever seen. Seriously, it's a piece of crap. Really. Yup. It sucks.

Providing you can pick this one up on sale, it is definately worth it.

Beautiful lighting, nice graphics and a good score make even the tedious task of mining strangely meditative.
Decpite not having a finished storyline it is still a great little singleplayer game for exploring, collecting, crafting and building.
That said, I would suggest starting with the smallest map size, as finding all the components for things can take a long time.
Fortunately, you will be so mesmerised by all the glowing things you won't really notice.

First about the 'mixed' label:
This game is underrated. The label 'mixed reviews' is not doing it any justice, like Edge of Space. Glad I am sometimes looking through the label 'mixed'. This game is awesome! That being said, I bought it after the latest december patch.

About the game:
Darkout is a craft and survive game with the most beautiful graphics I ever saw in the genre. The devs put very much detail and hard work into this game making it look this way. You are basically crashed on a mysterious planet and have to do 'missions' to progress while you craft a solid base and unlock more tech as you progress.

Pro's:
Even a small world is big, this game is big.
Extensive crafting system
Beautiful graphics and sound effects
Excellent gameplay-mechanics
High replayability

Con's:
No interactive tutorial, mostly text so it has a very steep learning curve. Prepare to have google and the community at hand. But once you learn the mechanics, you're addicted!

This great game is needs to reviewed again by the previous negatives. As it is now, you'll get more than enough gameplay for your money. It has very few bugs left (at least as far as I have played) and is lots of fun. When the positives go up, the game will get sold more. This game needs to get sold more. For maybe more content and a part 2. If you skip this one, you'll miss out on one of the greatest 2d crafting games of the genre.

Great sci-fi survival platformer game with smooth controls and great research system. Art style is wonderful, it has great atmoshpere. Despite it feels unfinished, Darkout has hours and hours full of content. Devs are also trying to expand it with patches.

Recommended in current state, also it will be better if gets a multiplayer option.

You'll see alot of bad reviews of this game, you'll also see that many of these bad reviews are from people who have spent many many hours playing Darkout, alot upwards of 100 hours, like myself. The game is jammmed with content, and while the story side of things is glitchy and unfinished, the crafting and research is brilliant. And some of the mechanics are well thought out and considerate. Like the fact you dont need a particular resource in you personal inventory to craft, it only need be stored nearby. So simple yet so brilliant.
As for the story, i had played many hours before i relised there was one, and when i tried to follow it, i could only get so far. But it does not impinge on the core game, which is what we want.
I hope the Devs get their act together, as this is a greatly missed opportunity.

There's... a chunk of a good game here. You can make a base, set up, get some stuff, and become less squishy. Once you hit your stride, you can make it across the map and kill anything that you need to. And then the game ends.

I've definitely played worse, I just wish there was more of this one to play. Worth a buy, especially on sale.

I've had a lot of fun with this game. Its atmospheric and looks really good. Gameplay works fairly well. The crafting system is pretty good. Its not a life changing game but if you can get it on sale, its worth it.

Of all the Terraria clones, this is the only one that impressed me. Now, I'm not saying it's perfect. I'm not a big fan of how they gate their recipes (I always get stuck and stop progressing at some point). I am also not a fan of how batteries are disposable. (What, no rechargeable batteries or personal power generators in the future?) Otherwise, it is pretty good. Graphics are the best of breed for this type of game. Gameplay is responsive, outside of a few construction quirks. I especially like the jetpack, if and when you get it. Laser guns are fun too.

Good for at least 20-30 hours, if nothing else.

This is the game that Starbound, Terraria, and Edge of Space wish they could be
