Summary: Darkout is difficult to control and overwhelms the player with complexity instead of providing a sane tutorial. This game is a good example of how a small studio can create something beautiful that fundamentally fails at being fun.
Summary: As it stands this is good 2D sci/fi survival/crafting experience that could of easily been a great experience with a bit more polish. This game is still being updated and patched by the Devs whom seem to actively take interest in feedback from regular gamers. So much so in fact any review over a year old is really obsolete.
Summary: I purchased Darkout and Starbound the same time I've played ~60mins of Starbound (i tried playing while playing Darkout, went back to Darkout) I've played ~35hrs of Darkout on steam Though Darkout has only just hit steam, its been out for some time post version 1.0 I'm surprised Darkout hasn't had much attention on the internets. Its truly a fantastic game.

Darkout has good control, fantastic setting, a story, great visuals, good graphics, interesting world and enemies and they are beautiful too when you play it, it really feels that you're stranded there, alone on that people who are giving this fantastic game low ratings, fail to understand the simple...
Summary: Darkout is an amazing game and I'm having a lot of fun with it. I've played Minecraft and Terraria before, and I really liked them both for what they are, but Minecraft lacks focus and Terraria is more in line with a 'Metroidvania with crafting' than a survival game. Darkout's highlights are its graphics. It is a very beautiful game, brimming with atmosphere and with breathtaking Darkout is an amazing game and I'm having a lot of fun with it.
