Cold Dark Wild

A mobile wilderness survival game.

In Cold Dark Wild, players assume the role of a man awoken on the coast of Alaska with nothing but a backpack, a pocket knife, and a mysterious note. Hunting for meat to delay starvation and fur to stave off the elements are integral to surviving long enough to find civilization and the answers he seeks.
