I just found it so deep and intriguing. It taps into something primal in the psych. Compared to so many other games that I play on PC and mobile, many of which are just time killers or provide some short lived entertainment, I found A Dark Room to be really... I don't know how to describe it exactly, but it resonated with me. I found it to be melancholy, dark, sinister, thought provoking, fun and sad all at once.
I'd be interested to hear your opinion once u play it through codah. It's actually quite a short game, maybe 4-5hrs I think.
So yeah. The developer has made the code for the game open source.. You can go and download it but I have no idea where to start to modify it and change it into my own game.
I have ideas for an adaptation though in terms of themes and variations to game play.
