ASMR Let’s Play The Long Dark (Alpha Sandbox) (PC)
Whispered ear to ear, butterscotch candy eating, water bottle drinking playthrough of the PC game The Long Dark, which is in its Alpha stage. I’m not sure how completely developed the game is, or how much you can do, but I tried to explore the game and it’s mechanics as best I could which is limited to Sandbox mode in its current state.

Q&A from the developer’s website:
What kind of game is The Long Dark?
The Long Dark is a first-person survival simulation. Gameplay involves exploring an open-world wilderness environment where you must search for resources and knowledge about the world in order to survive. The game features a deep survival simulation that accounts for body temperature, caloric intake, hunger/thirst, fatigue, wind-chill, wildlife, and a host of other environmental factors.
When will The Long Dark be released?
Supporters of The Long Dark’s crowdfunding campaign are already playing the Survival Sandbox portion of the game. The Long Dark Sandbox will be coming to Steam Early Access in September, 2014. The full release of the Sandbox and Episodic Story Mode will come later in 2014.
What’s the relationship between the Sandbox and Story modes in the game?
The Survival Sandbox is the open-world simulation layer where all the deep survival mechanics are built and tuned. This is a free-form, non-narrative mode where players see how long they can survive against the elements, while balancing the needs of their survival against the availability of resources and the risks they have to take to obtain life-saving supplies. The Episodic Story mode tells the story of bush pilot Will Mackenzie, who crash lands deep in the Northern Canadian wilderness in the aftermath of a geomagnetic disaster. He has to survive long enough to understand the profound ways in which the world has just changed. This episodic story experience is layered atop the rich simulation found in the Survival Sandbox.
Are there any zombies in The Long Dark?
No, The Long Dark aims to present a more “realistic” take on the survival genre. There are no zombies in the game. The elements, wildlife, and other AI survivors are dangerous enough.

What is ASMR? Why am I whispering?
ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response and is the current (non-scientific) name given to the feeling characterized as a pleasurable tingling sensation felt in the head, scalp, back and other regions of the body in response to visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, and/or cognitive stimuli, such as crinkling bags, hand movements, whispering and personal attention.
My videos are not only meant to help induce ASMR or “tingles”, but also help provide a relaxing, calming and soothing experience for the viewer while helping to relieve their anxiety relief, stress relief, insomnia relief, to help those suffering with PTSD or depression, to serve as a study aid and much more.
