    Them survival games sure are popping out of the woodwork all over, not that it's a bad thing.

    This looks very messy, but that could make it fun to mess around in.

    Being a sucker for dinosaurs since I was like 5, I'm looking for a game that portrays them in a more scary and threatening way though. I wasn't extremely impressed with them in "The Stomping Land" and this doesn't look much better in that regard.

    Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

    I think its time for a studio to build a "Survival of Survival games" - where your goal is to fight the onslaught of Dev studios making new survival games.

    Replace zombies with Dinos or in this instance - devs trying to get $50 for their new survival game.

    But you end up just killing other players instead.

    Such is reality of survival MMOs.

    It's about the easiest type of game to get into an 'alpha' state and start grubbing money for. 

    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein

    Also I love how you walk up to a tree trunk, whack it a few times and wood logs just fly out.

    same with rock.

    I know its a game but it would be a lot more realistic to find some caves or build shelter out of searching for foliage and sticks instead of whacking on a 100+ year old tree trunk with a hand Axe.

    At least make it to where it would take several players to chop down a tree of that size.

    Why bother with "realism" in these types of games ? None of them are likely to make much money or last for very long. The harder you have to work at gaining ingame goodies, the more it will hurt when you inevitably lose them. And the greater the potential advantage that could be gained by an organised group.

     

    The potential playerbase for these kinds of "permadeath/FFA-PVP/Slaughterfest" is a small niche, and the amount of games trying to woo them is increasing rapidly. The venerable DayZ-Standalone is still in alpha, but it was sort-of beaten to the punch by WarZ (or whatever it's called now). They've been joined by "Rust". And "The Nether". And "Stomping Grounds". And soon "H1Z1". And now this game as well...

     

    Steam will have to create a "Survival Game" category soon to accommodate all these titles.

    Hah, I'm beginning to feel like everyone who's wanting a sandbox game that caters to them to finally be developed.  Where's my cooperative survival game where my friends and I have to face a savage, heartless world solely by wit and toil and teamwork?  I'd love to try these kinds of games if they weren't obsessed with man's inhumanity towards man.

     Games aren't obsessed "man's inhumanity towards man." That's just man. Nothing wrong with games giving people choices both good and bad.
