Whether you played it during it’s chart-topping launch period last Winter or during it’s “hey, I’m free right now” sale earlier this month, you’ll be pleased to know that the sequel to A Dark Room is finally live.

And by sequel, I mean prequel.

The Ensign is described by it’s creator as “brutally difficult,” and covers the events that led right up to the beginning of A Dark Room.

“Best of luck to whoever attempts this game,” reads The Ensign’s iTunes description. “I imagine few will succeed in completing all of it.”

You can download The Ensign from the App Store for $0.99.
