Darkout has been in development since July 2011 by a small group of people from very different countries (UK, Southafrica, France, The Nederlands...) behind the game there is Adrian Banninga, an industry veteran who has been working in the CG field since 2000.

The main features of the game are:

  • Sci-fi theme with elaborated graphics. The game atmosphere is clearly inspired in movies like Aliens, I am Legend or Pitch Black. Also the game aims to capture the beautiful landscapes seen in recent films like Avatar.
  • Great survival component. Your character will be constantly harassed by enemies coming from the darkness and will have no other choice than fighting for his life with the weapons he will find, everything to gain access to precious resources he can craft/loot/harvest.
  • Light vs. Dark combat system. You are the only survivor in a world ruled by darkness where light will be your best ally to make your road through hordes of hostile creatures. At the same time, the light will be the biggest attractor for the enemies who want to destroy you and convert your soul todark matter by all means. Other nice point to mention is that the player will encounter some awesome and fierce bosses waiting for him at different points of the game.
  • Exploration and strategic component. The game design is shaped in a way that the player will have to think twice about where to set his base, how to manage resources he find and and research the materials from his environment in order to upgrade his equipment. In this way you will evolve your character along the game acquiring unique habilities and features for your tracksuit and weapons.
  • The game will be released in Q3 2012, on next months we have planned to release a beta version and also to submit to Steam. Versions for iPad and XBLA are also on our schedule. The game updates will be free and inclusive for the initial game price, also the price of the game will be very competitive with Terraria and Minecraft.

Also you can find us on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

We'll be tweaking all the resource strengths shortly, just getting all the major bugs out of the way first, also stronger tools dig faster :)

I started the game: clicked on the create world button and it hangs. This happened since your last two patches. How do I fix it.

You may have to do the following:
Go to your users/ (username) /appdata/roaming/allgraf/darkout/journal folder and delete all the files in there.

run the updater again and try to create a wolrd, should work now.

The game look good, but I have a few problem,
-first of all, where are the requirements for the game I can't find them and I'm starting to wonder if my computer can run the game because I am unable to play because when I create a caracter, none show up in the list but I have a select button as if I had created a caracter, but I can't select anything, all I see is a weird line
I'm using 0.2.3 version.

Also, in the summary it say to run the updater the first time then only when a new patch is out, but both Darkout.exe and DarkoutUpdater.exe start the updater is that normal or is it that it no longer matter.

You can choose to update at any point, we just want to make sure that it is run the versy first time so it installs the save game locations, the Desura installer does not, only our standalone does.

currently with kerosene tanks if you click to make more than 4 tanks it will waste your coal, be careful!! I am sure kerosene is supposed to be instantly made.

is the kerosene tank supposed to take time to make or is it supposed to be an instant make resource, as it has the box beside it to type how many you want to make, but if you are limited to making crafting 4 items at a time why have the box there? Just wondering if it's correct or not, i am sure it used to be instant make, it isn't any longer.

Now for some review: First, expect more awesome updates because they originally asked for $500 donations and ended w. 5000 I created a full game review in my blog that will hopefully give you all enough information to help you guys decide weather the game is for you or not. I included some beginner's tip, breakdown on the game's features and content, I also put their future plans and upcoming contents and work in progress in there, as welll as the retailers you can get the game from and why I think…

I recently got this game on Desura. It looked very nice and seemed to have an good design. Unfortunatly it is hard to like when it has so many strange design choises. The first obstacle I stumbeled upon was the account. I started the program and it demanded an account. Which I could not create either in game or be linked to any web page to do it. Not until I read some posts in the forums I understood I had to link my desura account so a mail could be sent out. Holy cow what a un-friendly way of…
