Darwin Project Review
Posted: 3 weeks ago.
Darwin Project takes place in a dystopian post-apocalyptic Northern Canadian Rockies before a new Ice Age. It's essentially a game-show but where contestants can die. Ten prisoners are spawned into a snowy map and can only choose three pieces of equipment to start with (bear traps, cage traps, snowballs, hooks, gliders, and tripwires).

It should be noted that the game can still be played without the need to purchase such items.
