Short Description

Long Gone Days is a 2D modern-day military RPG set in our current times, with a focus on language and cultural barriers, inspired by classic dystopian literature and visual novels.

After being deployed to his first mission, Rourke leaves The Core's base for the very first time, only to discover the dark truth about the operation he's part of and the consequences of deserting an inescapable war.

With no place to call home now, he must prevent the war from spreading any further, forming strong bonds along the way that will forever change his life.

  • Communication is Key: As Long Gone Days is set in the real world, you'll encounter several language barriers. Recruit interpreters in order to communicate with others.
  • Keep Morale High: Choose dialogue options wisely as they impact your party members' Morale, affecting how they perform during battles. While doing so, keep in mind every character has different personality traits and motivations.
  • Sniper Mode: Long Gone Days has two battle systems. Using Rourke's rifle, spot your enemies and take down your targets.
  • No Random Encounters: Long Gone Days features front-view turn-based battles with body-targeting system, and every battle is directly related to the plot.

I am so exited that we have a release date! I loved playing this game.

I'm three years late to the party but where is the steam key :P just got a deck!

Hello, How do I update the game if I already own it?


This game looks awesome! I really love the art style! militarily  is not a theme I usually like to explore in games but I absolutely want to play this game! 

Wine still can’t run it on Linux :/

I have the game on here but im now on linux steamdeck. how can i play this?


Hey! A few weeks late, but I can help. Lutris on Steam Deck now has Itch compatibility, so you can install and play the game that way. You may need to manually select the exe though. I've been playing it that way.

I noticed that Adair has Poland flag! :) Wow, I didn't expected that.  Greetings from Poland.

Really loved everything about this game! 

Fantastic game - especially loved the audio design and animations both in and out of battle. Appreciate how the game integrates different languages and the need for interpreters. Thanks for all the great work, can't wait to play the final chapter!

Considering the burnout issues you had a while ago I won't ask when you think the game will be done. However, if possible, I would like to know 2 things. Is the game still in active development? And which parts of the game are finished, and which are still to be worked on?

This game is absolutely fantastic, I've loved everything about it so far! I'm extremely excited to see how the plot will continue forward from here.

Just a few items of feedback, the game feels like it could use some quality of life adjustments. Showing your party's active buffs, being able to compare weapons when equipping, displaying % chances for random effects are some I noticed in terms of combat. Improved settings would also be greatly appreciated; a way to toggle sprinting is really needed because my fingers hurt from holding shift so long lol. A way to adjust dialogue speed and controls for ease of use would also be great.

These are just a few of the aspects which I feel need a little bit more polish, but these are also relatively easy to overlook considering how enchanting and real the story feels. My heart really goes out to the developers for this amazing and unique work.


Is the game still in early access?


What can I say about this game...

I love the story direction, the characters, pixel art and story is so good and kept me engaged with how smooth it all plays out. The combat I really like because of the aiming system which adds a sort of risk reward to combat and keeps you on your toes. The music is so amazing and I love it, especially how it can be so calm and a absolute vibe, to a track that brings out fear and empathy when it plays during a battle.

This game is really good and I love it for everything it has contained in its files. This is the sorta stuff that the big AAA devs wouldn't dream of doing  but what a small team with a dream can and its beautiful. A true real work of art. I love it and thank you for making this wondrous experience!

I was incredibly surprised by the writing here, and the pixel assets are fine and do the job of giving you an environment to traverse but the hand-drawn art assets are top knotch. They're used infrequently but when they come up they really set the tone. Got this in the bundle for Ukraine and instead of getting bad writing I got an interesting story with somewhat clunky combat about someone wrapped up in a conspiracy thriller that takes them all across Europe running into difficulties with language barriers and different cultural customs while political drama unfolds all around you, and you're trying to piece it together.

The combat feels awkward, but its entirely forgivable since you spend so little time interacting with it. The game is simply not about that part, and it serves as a decent break from all the other stuff you generally get up too during the game. Recommend, but don't expect it to be a hype train of constant action. If you want an interesting story and great artwork this is for you.

Thanks for putting this in the bundle because otherwise I'd have never heard of it. Now to figure out when the next release is so I can keep playing it.


A must-have for the players who enjoy military topics and anime-style visual novels. Long Gone Days has very high-quality work on its cutscenes, character animation, combat system, and pixel art. And most important: the story is very catchy.


Thank you so much, we're glad you enjoyed it!


I managed to download this game and play it, it was honestly amazing, however I haven't been able to find the steam key to add it to my Steam library, is there any way you could help?


Hi there and thank you for your kind words! If you got the game through a bundle (Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality, Bundle for Palestinian Aid, Bundle for Ukraine) it won't come with a Steam key. If you bought the game separately, there should be a "Claim Key" button right next to the Download button.


Aaah, that explains it, yeah I got it through a Bundle. I'll pay the game fully when its out of EA then, very impressed by this!


Oh, just in case, you'll get access to all the updates anyway if you got it through a bundle, so don't feel pressured to buy it again!


ever since i first played this game over a year ago, it's been stuck in my head. it's just so good -- the plot, the writing, the characters, the art. everything just comes together extremely effectively within the narrative. i found myself completely immersed in these characters and their lives and just ahh!! i genuinely have no words for how much i love this game and how excited i am to play it in full!


This is such a good game, i really enjoyed playing it. The characters are really nice and fleshed out, as is the story. The combat system is simple but amazing. I would recommend this game to everyone who likes rpgs, its amazing!


Thank you so much for your kind words! I'm glad you enjoyed it!


I ain't played an RPG for years, but a friend said to try this - and so glad he did, I really enjoyed it !!

Aww, I'm really glad to hear that ♥!


I really enjoyed this game. Just waiting for the last chapter :)


Any idea when the game might be complete? I got it some time ago but was planning on waiting for everything to be done, so I don't need to play half of it and then halt progress until the next update


Hi there! We aim to finish the game this year, but we haven't announced the date yet. We're doing our best to finish it soon and we can't wait to release the final chapter.


Sweet, thanks for the response!


Excellent game, can't wait for the next chapter! The art is fantastic, the story is great. I really like sniper mode, it's a fun addition and much less frustrating than getting smoke bombed and stun gunned in regular combat haha

War is a terrible thing, and it benefits no one. Good to see that reflected here. The characters are great, I care about each of them, here's hoping none of them are lost to the horrors of war, but hey, I'm bracing myself for the inevitable 

If I uninstall it, will I retain my save file for the next update? Or will I have to play the whole thing again? Is there an export save button?

Thank you so much for your kind words! Save files are stored in: Users/<YourUser>/AppData/LocalLow/Bura/Long Gone Days

So I would suggest backing those files just in case. You will be able to continue the game using your current saves once we release the full version.


Just finished the game (or what's avaliable of it) and it's very good! can't wait for the rest of it!


Aww, thank you very much! We can't wait to finish it either!


I remember playing the Demo in 2018 and seeing this game fully completed gives me nostalgia. Haven't played it yet, but I'm downloading it as I type this!


This is such a great game. Or as I would call it on my language; UN JUEGAZOOO. I loved the story, the plots, the fight scenes, the humor in some scenes, the locations design, the character design and development, EVERYTHING. It made me want to grab 30 sheets of paper and draw all the characters akjsdak. I'm not usually interested in RPG games. But this game is simply THE game. This certainly deserves much more support.

The only bad thing about the game is that it leaves the expectation very high for other games, it will be difficult to find a game with such good quality as this one, hahan't T-T

Now I will wait patiently for the last chapter. And who knows, maybe a future Spanish translation :o?! (btw, sorry if my english was bad lol) 


Thank you so much for your support! We're glad you enjoyed it. And don't worry about your English, all 3 of us are from Chile, haha.


I was reluctant to buy it despite my interest from the moment it was announced due to too many devs running away with the money during development, now I got it in the Ukraine bundle and played it non-stop (the choice to include it was very fitting, although sad).

Amazing game, great story, some battles are just damn frustrating, the hit chance of status effects seems way too high compared to how many items you can find to cure them, I ran out of nearly everything, including healing items, by the end of chapter 2.

A way to compare equipment would be great as well, having to switch them out just to see the stats is quite tedious when you have a bunch of stuff.

Apart from that, I really enjoyed it and hope the devs will finish it, I want to know how their story ends.


this in the urkaine bundle💀


Enjoy this game so much. Really good RPG advanture.  Creppy the way you predict its events. 


Tried to play but the game makes my cursor disappear on my M1 Macbook Air (2020) so can't really enjoy it yet. Anyone have a fix?


I am also playing on a 2020 M1 Macbook Air.  The game does not use the mouse as an input, so they cursor is hidden.  You navigate using the arrow keys on your keyboard, 'x' is confirm and 'c' is cancel.  Took me a little while to figure out, but now that I know, I am greatly enjoying this game!


I got this game with the 2020 Racial Justice bundle. Fantastic piece of work. Just wish it didn't feel so prophetic and hit so much harder a mere two years later.

Wow. Just a Beautiful Looking game with cool gameplay so far too.  so glad i could pick this up in the charity bundle for Ukraine!


Thank you so much for donating to the bundle!! We're really glad to hear you liked it!

(1 edit) (+3)(-1)

I do hope someone make promotion for this game. Cause i was thinking abouth this game when Russia invaded Ukrain.

 I only played part 1, maybe now is time for me to play part 2.


Looks very cool! I'll wait until this is finished and play it then :)


is this a one-time clear game, or infinitely playable? (ex. terraria, stardew.. yknow like that)

Has this game been finished? The last update in August said it was going to be finished by the end of the year. 


Hi there! All that's left is the final boss fight and the endings which shouldn't take that long.

To be completely transparent (this is probably more information than you want to hear, but I think it's better than being silent about it), my health wasn't the best last year as I was overworking myself to make ends meet, and I finally saved enough to focus solely on Long Gone Days 100% again to make sure we'll finish it this year for sure.


Glad to read! :D Take care!

How do I save? I just played a lot of the game and decided to quit, but the game didn't save, and I'm really disappointed(I played about an hour). While I might be up for replaying the parts I had already played so as to get further in the story, I still can't figure out how to save.


Hi there! I'm sorry you couldn't save, if you are still up for playing again, you can save by interacting with either one of these machines or these birds (the first one appears about 20 minutes in):


Man, This game is So Pretty, I just love it!

The pixel art is so dynamic and charming and the stills in the cut scenes are just gorgeous, Also the story so far that I have played it super captivating and Just all around an awesome time!

When I started my lets play I had high hopes but It has far surpassed them!

Also on that Note!

I'm having a ton of fun playing through this game on my YouTube if anyone wants to check that out!
