The Long Dark has made its Kickstarter goal of $200K CAD, after it seemed like the game wasn't going to make its target a week or so ago. The flurry of press received by the game, including the that voice actress Jennifer Hale was involved, put the game over the top with less than 3 days to go.
Developer Hinterland stated, "When things were looking a little grim for the campaign and we had people reaching out to us to say..."You should quit, 'cause I've seen enough of these to know you're not going to make it.", we said -- no. As long as we have one backer who believes in what we're doing, we're taking this all the way to the finish line. One way or the other."
The two stretch goals are at $225K CAD, adding a digital graphic novel tie-in, and at $250K CAD, doubling the music soundtrack.
