Give it time

When I first played 'A Dark Room', it was hard not to feel a bit cheated. A text based interface that couldn't be more simple and what seemed like a simple hoard and build game. I kept playing to see what the reviews were about and while I don't think I felt connected like others did, it was still worthwhile to play to the end.

It expands past simply hoarding and building which really added a whole other level to the game and I finally got what the reviews were saying. I really like how you're not babied through the game too and there's a lot to figure out and explore by yourself, which is more difficult to come by in games these days. Thanks very much for the experience.

Stunning Masterpiece

I have never written a review before but I felt obliged to share my experience with this game. It is, quite simply, a masterpiece. At first, I was taken aback by its simplicity and apparently minimal interface - but I am exceedingly glad I pressed on.
The game works on the common basis of upgrade/explore/combat yet somehow manages to be far more enthralling than its more complex counterparts. Perhaps this is because it allows your imagination to become involved in the game.
The story is consuming, intriguing - genuinely of interest unlike most games where you 'skip' everything. It was unpredictable, new and exciting.
The resource collecting and development system in-game is the perfect mix of user involvement and gradual automated collection. How this game makes collecting resources enjoyable is a sweet miracle.

This game makes me feel how I imagined people felt when they first played 'Pong' during the dawn of computer gaming; mind-blowing.

There is a reason this game has won so many prizes.

A great game I never experienced before.

When I bought this game I thought this game is rubbish. There is no sound, no art it's just all text. But then I started to imagine my little village growing, watching my people cut down trees and then me with my katana killing everyone in my path while gathering supples and loots. One part I hate is the ship part it's very hard to pass and when you do it you complete the game and resets. I was hoping a new adventure beyond the ship part but nope. Oh well it's a very fun game. Thank you :)
