Game Description

A Dark Room creates a roguelike experience within the incremental genre. It starts the game as a very simplistic interface, providing a single button to progress, but quickly integrates multiple resources, building construction, equipment, and more. It is available in both browser and iOS.

Resources
There are a wide range of resources that become available to the player as the game progresses. Notably, wood quickly becomes the most important, as it is required to keep the fire burning and to construct buildings. Other resources that come into player later on include meat for curing (which can then be used to keep the player fed during expeditions), leather, and steel.

Buildings
Huts are just the first building that become available, and will allow the player to receive population to help support the player's campsite. People that have moved into huts can be assigned jobs, from gathering wood to mining for coal. These jobs all produce resources, while some will also consume them. Raw meat, for example, will be consumed when producing cured meat.

Equipment
The player will be given the option of crafting equipment. There is a long list of items available to make, but they include weapons, armor, bags to carry more goods when on an expeditions, water reservoirs to carry more water, and more. These become vital to the progression of the player late game.
Alternatively, some items can be found while out on expeditions. Swords, guns, bullets, and more can be found from either felled enemies or hidden caches.

Expedition
Once the player has received a compass, they will be able to go out on an expedition. While out, the player must maintain enough food and water to ensure that they don't die. Water is consumed once ever step, while cured meat is consumed once every 4.
The player may randomly encounter enemies while outside the safety of the camp. As the player progresses further and further away, the enemies become stronger and faster, meaning that the player must ensure that they have enough skill to defend themselves. This will generally consist of arming themselves with better weapons (such as rifles).
Houses, caves, mines, and more can be found while out. If the player clears a location of enemies and reaches the end, they will generally be rewarded with a cache of items. This can include meat, but may also hold rarer items such as steel swords or grenades. Once the location has been cleared, it may be turned into a safehouse. Once a safehouse has been established, it will populate with a random amount of cured meat for the player to collect while out travelling. A safehouse can only be visited once per trip and will automatically replenish the player's water supplies.
Roads will be made from the safehouse back to the camp. While on roads, the player will not be attacked at all.

Starting from the stone age and men with clubs doing very little damage and up to modern age fighting the egg with tanks, aircrafts etc.The gameplay is fun, but the game doesn't progress when you're away, so it consumes a lot of your time. It doesn't seem to be finished as the reset basically doesn't give you anything useful, so once you reach modern age, that's basically it. Although technically the game is not over, there is nothing else left to upgrade or discover in the game.
