What's New in Version 1.55
Wanderer lore speaks of a god mode. They say you have to refuse food and complete the journey. They say great power will be given if done so.
Conquer, and become a god.
Fixed an issue where entering an H created a blackhole. The blackhole engulfed all existence... wanderers and humans alike. That shouldn't happen anymore.
You should totally gift this game to your friends and family. Why suffer alone?
A Masterpiece of a Game
When I first played A Dark Room years ago, I had stumbled across the browser version and only put maybe an hour or so into it. Those of you who have played know this barely scratches the surface of the game, but even so, when I came across the app quite a long time after, I didn't hesitate to buy it. I've replayed it an uncountable number of times.
The Ensign provides just as enthralling and incredible of an experience. This game is brutal, don't get me wrong, but it's brutality adds to the story in a way I've never seen before. I found myself occasionally wanting to die so I could see how the game changed. Of course, there were also the times (much more frequent) where I found myself cursing and having to put the game down because I'd died of my own carelessness. The frustration is entirely worth it. Stay with it. Start again, as much as you won't want to. I can't tell you the number of times this game made me pause and gave me chills.
The Ensign, as well as the original A Dark Room, are exquisite games with unique, rich storytelling and gameplay. I cannot recommend them enough.
Mindblowing on so many levels
I cannot explain in words how much I love this game. It will make you feel so many emotions because of its brutal story, amazing gameplay, and the decisions you make. However, if you haven't played A Dark Room, do NOT play this game. Play a dark room first, otherwise you will not get the full experience. This game is hard at first, and you will be frustrated. Sometimes you have to die to progress into the game. The game even mocks you sometimes when you die. My favorite and most aggravating was when I was killed by a sniper. I had gotten pretty far, and by my foolishness I went too far from the center and encountered a sniper. He killed me and I had to start over. As I was passing through the introduction, the screen turned black and a single word in red appeared. headshot. I smiled and wanted to smash my phone against the wall. So to finish this up, the game is well worth the 99 cents. I would pay $10 for this game because I love it so much. The story is so rich, brutal, and sad. It makes you question who to trust and which side you really should be on. And I just love it.
Brutal In The Best Sense of the Word.
I would have to say that this game is brutal and almost impossible. You will die often, as much from your own carelessness as from the enemies you face. However, like many very difficult things it's extraordinarily satisfying, so much so that when I "finished," the game (I don't know if that's even the right word) I actually went back and subjected myself to more brutal death just to "complete" two of the unfinished "tasks." (I'd be clearer but I don't want to give too much away.) this game is not the brooding existential exercise of "A Dark Room," but is a more traditional RPG (although not traditional by the normal standards.) I highly recommend this game if you are up for.a challenge and don't mind some frustration mixed in with your triumph. Or should I say a lot of frustration. Tablet throwing level. I mean it. But buy the game anyway. It's great.
