The Long Dark is Here!

The Long Dark 1.0 has now launched! 

You should all now be able to use your Steam keys to access Episode One and Episode Two of WINTERMUTE, The Long Dark’s story mode. 

We sent Steam Keys out to all backers back in 2014, but if for some reason you lost the email with them or are having other issues collecting your key, please contact us at so we can help you out.

To celebrate the launch, here is the launch trailer, along with a short live-action “visual poem” called Elegy, which we produced to both celebrate the launch, and also support the announcement that The Long Dark is being developed as a film.


If you run into technical issues, or would just like to join the discussion about WINTERMUTE, please visit our new Community Hub.
