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.

Darkout reviews and comments

Were it unfortunately because I believed that a good Game is being developed. But Pustkuchen, doing so it had Potential. This is a Negative Example of how a Developer can't do it. I find it sad That the Courage is not even incensed to admit to having no Money or whatever more. Just away is not the Fine Art.

Good game, missing some business to be even better, I do not like at all the way so we can mine and cut weapons, no way to select 1 square at a time. So walls is a bit heavy as gameplay. On the other hand in its genre the game is unique, really better than a Starbound (Starpot) as Jaime the affieller. More beautiful and larger and especially better provided in vegetation. No worries about FPS, the game run nickel. A better terreria.

I Would recommend this Game if it worked at all. I spent money on it. I tried everything. Have scoured These totally outdated forum entries about the same difficulties. Nothing simply NOTHING worked. The game still lubricates every time a World is loaded, After the loading screen faithfully starts to flash. Errormessage: Too many Errors applied had to be closed etc ... I have everything uptodate and yes I also fulfill the System Pre-closures. If I ask for help, I simply got away with the answer. "Update your Graphics drivers" Then came no more. I want my money back.

The game could be nice if the developers were not stupid! The game has been in development for more than 2 years, they promise us the multi since that time... However, it is still not there and probably will never... In short if you want to buy a game, avoid the one... without counting the periodicity of the update, has the time or I write, the last update date of may 2014... The Admins do not appreciate that they are told that they make the ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ to announce us a multi game and crying on their forum as what they no longer have money to continue the development... In short to avoid. P. S: not far from 50h of games Pres steam release...

I didn't think a return to a 2D game in side scrolling captivates me so much... Visually it is beautiful, the 3D does not lack, it is even rather RESTful by the way, the lighting is well managed, the management of the light is very interesting: attention to the alternating day/night, dark places... The beginnings in play are quite difficult, not really explanations, the grip is not easy, so we discover, which is not worse... And I will say that the more we discover, explore, build and less we can pick up. Always want to do more, to build new objects, to do research, to test a lot of things... and for 3 euros on sale, it's definitely worth it. Of course all in English, no worse to enrich his vocabulary.
