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?

Darkout - типичная игра-песочница, вроде Terraria и Starbound, но со своими особенностями.
Прежде всего - в игре есть сюжет, который в песочницы редко завозят. В игре все выполнено в 2.5D стиле (игра остается 2D, но объекты в мире сделаны в 3D), что тоже может порадовать людей, уставших от пиксельной графики других представителей жанра. Системы крафта и исследований весьма интересны и жаловаться на них не приходится.
Но как бы там ни было, мне игра не понравилась. Начнем с того, что разработчики реализовали только первую часть игры (всего запланировано 3-4), из-за чего пока вытекает сразу много проблем: нет мультиплеера, сюжет не закончен, мало контента, мир кажется пустым из-за отсутствия NPC (точно известно, что их планируют). Кстати, обновлений не было с 2013 года, но все же еще есть надежда, что игра не мертва.
Другие проблемы - баги, да и оптимизация, как мне показалось, хромает: персонаж иногда дергается и подвисает, когда на одном экране много врагов. Кстати, враги именно то, что заставило меня бросить эту игру - они простые, но эти твари респаунятся, да еще практически каждые 10-15 секунд. Если сначала это не замечаешь, то уже через пару часов игры, когда у порога твоего дома с полдесятка врагов, дружно выносящих тебя с одного укуса, это начинает действовать на нервы.
Другая особенность игры - это темная планета, на которой мы оказались. Здесь практически вечная тьма, поэтому местная фауна или научилась излучать свет, или стала агрессивными хищниками, любящими темноту. Чтобы бороться с врагами, их нужно сначала осветить, а потом уже убивать (идея не нова, такое уже было в Alan Wake). Вроде идея хорошая, но я ее не оценил - я реально устал вглядываться в эту темноту на экране, ведь без фонарей или факелов не видно даже земли под ногами ГГ. Однако и с освещением не лучше - на ранних этапах источники света имеют очень малый радиус, что не позволяет видеть ни обрывы, ни врагов, ни даже руду в земле. Учитывая, что почти все время приходится проводить в потемках, то это совсем не радует.
Вердикт: любители песочниц, избороздившие весь мир Terraria, могут полюбить эту игру, ведь все-таки она не бездушный клон, а довольно оригинальный проект. Но не для меня и не для большинства геймеров, которым я советую не тратить время на эту игру (хотя бы до выхода еще нескольких обновлений). 6/10

UPD: 15 мая 2014 на официальном форуме игры появилась информация, что идет работа над мультиплеером и даже есть кое-какие успехи. Но у разработчиков финансовые затруднения, к тому же им пришлось переделывать игру на Unity, так как прошлый движок был слишком нестабильным для МP. Команда сейчас урезана, поэтому релиз мультика, который планировался на июнь/июль, ждать в ближайшее время не приходится. Такие дела.

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.
