As a fan of any game with a temperature gauge, I’ve been excited about Frostpunk since the first snowy videos appeared. After playing a recent demo of the game’s opening hours, Frostpunk seems like it’s shaping up to be an interesting mix of city-building and survival.
A journey through the world of the freezing woods of the survival game The Long Dark has long been wonderful. The sky constantly changes; the snow is breathtaking. The sound design is rich and detailed, with your pack making different sounds depending on what you’re carrying. The quiet can be overwhelming, until it’s…
Looking over reviews of recent Steam sandbox hit Citadel: Forged With Fire, I was struck by a repeated refrain: Finally, reviewers cheered, a game that eschews survival “busywork” like hunger, thirst, and stamina. It’s true that in many so-called survival games, survival is tedious. But survival is about more than…
Neo Scavenger doesn’t look like much. In a world of visually beautiful, sprawling survival sims like The Long Dark and Ark, it hardly stands out. But it’s one of the best survival game out there, and now you can play it on mobile.
Dying Light, the parkour-themed zombie action game released in January 2015, is getting another free year’s worth of ten DLCs, according to its developer. While many players said they are excited, some players also said that they would rather see a sequel. All of the DLCs will be free on console and PC.
Impact Winter is a snowy, post-apocalyptic survival game that came out last week for PC. Some of its design decisions are bizarre, and a lot of the game is downright broken, but I’ve been playing it obsessively anyway.
While playing Astroneer, I kept messaging my colleagues about cool ways it had killed me. It was a morbid thing to be excited about. But a satisfying death is the hallmark of a good survival game, and, even in its early stages, Astroneer has a lot of them.
Since late 2014, the developers of the Canadian wilderness survival game The Long Dark have refined the game’s interface, made its ravenous virtual wildlife smarter and added numerous player challenges. They’re planning to add a story, too, but the best facet of The Long Dark was there from the start: The game is…
The Flame in the Flood is a survival game that just launched on Steam. It’s not about building, or zombies, or pranking your friends. Just surviving and seeking civilization. That makes sense, given its background.
Damn. Astroneer wasn’t on my radar before—but it sure as hell is now.
Pamela is an upcoming PC game that looks pretty striking for something that’s supposed to be a survival horror game. No gross, gritty environments that are so typical of the genre to be found here!
Alternate headline: "Every PC Game Released In The Year 2015."
If the last couple of years didn't make it clear, Steam players sure love their survival games.
We've told you a lot about The Stomping Land, the great survival game that looks like a cross between DayZ and Jurassic Park. But now, with this new trailer, you can see a lot of the stuff we've written about before in action.
ReROLL isn't like most survival games. For one, it uses drones—the machines map out the games' world using real-world map data. Which is to say, the open world you'll be exploring in-game is some of the terrain you'll find in the real world.
