Darkout Review | Structure Gaming

Zachary writes,

"Darkout is a 2D Sandbox game with procedurally generated worlds, not dissimilar to Terraria or Starbound (with which Darkout was released on the same day as), interwoven with elements of the 4X genre and with a slightly more emphasized narrative to provide context. Open starting the game, an intro movie plays detailing your landing pod being ejected from a very large, derelict looking spaceship towards a nearby planet. This planet is Illuna, a strange, hostile world populated by shadowy creatures, abandoned by humans after mysterious circumstances force a swift evacuation. It’s up to you to survive on this strange world, craft new tools and items to assist you, and unravel the mystery of Illuna. Upon creating a character in one of two modes- “Normal” which is exactly what it sounds like or the crafting-oriented “Builder mode that prevents you from dying and progressing in the narrative- and either a randomly generated world or a world from a specific numerical seed, you are dropped straight into the game world. Barring an optional tutorial, the only sense of narrative direction given is that your handy Personal Data Model is detecting strange signals that are interfering with your ability to send or receive any potentially important radio transmissions. Beyond that it’s just you, the world, and all the time in the world to explore." (Darkout, PC) -
