Darkout is a sandbox action-game with strong survival and strategy components. You are the only survivor after your escape pod crashes on a strange planet. The environment is full of mysterious and hostile shadow creatures, and the only way to survive will be to gather resources used for crafting and researching new weapons and technologies. The world is sunk in permanent darkness and the shadow creatures surrounding you are especially sensitive to light, and both play a key role if you want to last in this world. During the game you will have to use your strategic skills to build up new facilities which will allow you to progress further. Darkout brings a completely new experience to the player, frenetic, distressing and graphically far superior to what has been seen before in the sandbox genre.

Darkout started development in July 2011 (it is before our main competitor Starbound was announced) as the first sandbox game to take the genre into the future and the sheer scope of creating a game like this with HD graphics has meant quite an extended development cycle. We have so many features planned for the game that without funding we are only able to bring the game so far for the initial release but we will incorporate tons more in the future content updates, all of which will be covered by your initial purchase.
