What is Lone Survivor? As the game itself will remind you, this is one to play in the dark with headphones on.
Jasper describes Lone Survivor as a "psychological survival adventure game." It has taken elements from classic adventure games and the best bits of the survival horror genre to create something you haven't seen before.

To quote: Hey everyone, Rob here, representing the fine men and women of Curve studios in London. I'm very happy to announce that Lone Survivor will be out this coming Tuesday, the 24th of September.
Lone Survivor was originally released for the PC last year by indie developer Jasper Byrne. After eight months of work with Jasper on the PS3 and PS Vita versions, we're very happy to say that we've created the definitive version of this game.

12w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America Account Support Manager Nick Suttner shared some tips today for a successful expedition on PS3 and PS Vita.
To quote: Hello, fellow Spelunkers! Depending on how much Spelunky you've played thus far - available now on PS Vita and PS3, Cross-Buy / Cross-Save / Cross-Play for $14.99 - you probably fall somewhere between thinking it's a neat but masochistic experience, to a brilliantly crafted work of evil genius and one of the best things you've played in years.
I'm firmly in the latter camp at this point, playing in every spare moment and endlessly iterating my strategies on my quest to see the game's true ending.
Along the way, I've amassed a mental library of tips and tricks, both from my own playthroughs and from watching some friends in the indie developer community perform masterful runs of their own.
