This game I found a few days ago. Its another sandbox survival game but with a very stylize world that looks "Tim Burtonesque". You are basically a scientist and trying to survive in the wilderness. If you don't stay in the light at night then the creatures of the darkness will eat you! Looks fun and very creative. Its still in early alpha so its unfinished. But from what they do have it seems to work from what I have seen. It has lots of potential.

Other important things ...

1. Requires Google Chrome to play.

2. Req you pay for the game ($11.99)

So yeah I might buy this game. If not for the concept just for the stylized graphics.

Man what is it about people releasing these sorts of games while they are still in alpha?


Survival and exploration games are about the thrill of discovering the world and repeatedly failing before you eventually succeed. So why do they release them unfinished? The people who are going to want to play an alpha like this will be exactly the people the game should appeal to most, but they are going to get a bad experience. They learn everything and do all the discovery when the game is still bare bones as hell, and then when its finally release they are either bored of it or they already know how everything works, so there is no spark of discovery.

Sorry for hijacking the thread a bit (The game looks pretty neat) but this has really puzzled me.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

@Krakow Sam

I don't know, but I am glad they are making these sort of games. I like the survival genre games.

...and not telling people it's an alpha when they fork out for it. I mean, sure, you'll get the full product in the end, but hnngh.
Yes, that's a solid and rational line of reasoning : Hnngh.

I bought this, its pretty good, though it has many updates to go before its finished (every two weeks until late march)

If your interested I recommend grabbing it now while its on sale.

So Don't Starve came out is a DLC called Shipwrecked and its like a brand new game! I have played acouple gamesso far and its super fun (and hard). I highly recommend it to anyone who likes the Don't Starve series.

It's also for sale on steam for $4.49! The sale ends Dec 8th 2015.
