From indie developer Allgraf.com comes Darkout, a 2D sandbox exploration and crafting game. It’s an odd little genre but one that’s increasingly popular following the success of Terraria. It’s clear there are plenty of people out there that really dig this kind of thing, but it’s not for everyone. I’ve always felt as though I was just handed a pile of busy work with no real payoff at the end (but maybe that’s just me). Still, Darkout is enjoyable to an extent but even I could see that it does little to shake up the genre.
