What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Player feedback has been crucial for the development ever since the demo was released in 2016, and as a small team we believe that this is the best way for us to make improvements in terms of balance, storytelling and the overall experience while actively engaging with the community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Long Gone Days will be on Early Access until the final chapter is completed. Having said that, we expect to have the full game available by the end of 2018.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have the complete story, and one playthrough will be about 8~10 hours long. This will include meeting new party members, traveling to different countries, facing new and stronger enemies, and being able to get two different endings.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, our Early Access includes the first main arc of the story, which contains:

  • About 4 hours of story
  • The first 4 party members
  • First time using interpreters
  • Sidequests

For those who played the demo, while the plot remains the same, everything seen in the demo has been revamped with nicer graphics and improved dialogues (plus now you’ll have three times as much content as before).”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We may rise the price of Long Gone Days by the end of the Early Access, but it’s something that will be evaluated when that time comes.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The community has been a very important part of the game ever since the release of the original demo of Long Gone Days. We want to make the development of our game as transparent as possible, so we have always considered the feedback that’s been given to us.

We encourage everyone to send us their comments on the game directly through our Twitter, Facebook and Steam forums.”

Progress Report + Controller Support on Steam

Hi everyone! Camila here to fill you in on what we’ve been doing so far, and some other news and tips related to Long Gone Days.

As you might already know, Long Gone Days is 4 chapters long, and we have already released chapter 1. Because chapter 2 and 3 are shorter than chapter 1, we’ve been working on these two together, and they’ll be released together on our next big update. So this means that only two major updates are pending!

Here are some screenshots we haven’t shared here yet:

Lynn and Ivan's portraits went through a make over:

Here’s also a bit of production artwork, regarding character and prop design:

And well, you can see more about it on our devlog and Twitter (and also some of the beautiful fanarts we've gotten!).

Steam Big Picture: PS4, Xbox, Android & Steam controller support

While we are working on native controller support at the moment, Steam Big Picture lets you easily configure your controller to play Long Gone Days!

If you are interested in trying it out, we recently posted the instructions on the forums.

You can also enjoy Long Gone Days on your phone using the Steam Link app. Here are some in-game screenshots of the game being played through the app:

Mac version available NOW!

We are glad to announce that the Mac version is finally out, and it includes the complete first chapter of the game (v0.1.4)! As this is the first Mac release of Long Gone Days, there was a lot of testing involved, but rest assured that our upcoming Mac releases won't take as long.

IMPORTANT: While Long Gone Days has been tested on several operating systems without major issues, we highly discourage to run it on OS X 10.11 El Capitan. We will make another update when we manage to get a stable version working on that specific macOS.

On the same note, please let us know if you encounter any bugs during your gameplay, using our Bug Report Thread.

About This Game

Long Gone Days is a 2D modern-day military RPG set in our current times, with a focus on language and cultural barriers, inspired by classic dystopian literature and visual novels.

After being deployed to his first mission, Rourke leaves The Core's base for the very first time, only to discover the dark truth about the operation he's part of and the consequences of deserting an inescapable war.

With no place to call home now, he must prevent the war from spreading any further, forming strong bonds along the way that will forever change his life.

  • Communication is Key: As Long Gone Days is set in the real world, you'll encounter several language barriers. Recruit interpreters in order to communicate with others.
  • Keep Morale High: Choose dialogue options wisely as they impact your party members' Morale, affecting how they perform during battles. While doing so, keep in mind every character has different personality traits and motivations.
  • Sniper Mode: Long Gone Days has two battle systems. Using Rourke's rifle, spot your enemies and take down your targets.
  • No Random Encounters: Long Gone Days features front-view turn-based battles with body-targeting system, and every battle is directly related to the plot.
