Survival games have steadily been growing in popularity over the past few years and the latest contender to throw its hat in the ring is the upcoming Dinos Reborn by HardCodeWay and Vision Edge Entertainment. It is an open-world, first-person survival game that will launch on PC and consoles in 2022. As the title suggests, the setting for Dinos Reborn is a prehistoric sci-fi world where players will have to navigate between being predator and prey
The developers of Goner, the dinosaur survival adventure game currently on Kickstarter, has revealed a brand new gameplay teaser. Goner has already reached its Kickstarter goal, but with three days left it is also within reach of its second stretch goal. If achieved, this stretch goal will see a quetzalcoatlus added to the game. This pterosaur dates back to the Late Cretaceous period and was apparently one of the largest known flying animals of all time, so it is certainly something that we would love to see in the game. If quetzalcoatlus is added it will also come with new game mechanics and interactions
Disaster Report 4 is more about the human drama in the aftermath of a huge earthquake than survival, but it is still a very enjoyable experience. The tone of the game is all over the place and the gameplay lacks some polish, but a lot of times this just adds to the charm. This is definitely not a game for everyone, though, so make very sure you know what you are getting into before getting Disaster Report 4.
Gameplay: A unique and very unpredictable experience that lacks polish, but makes up for it with plenty of charm.
Graphics: There are a few epic scenes, but the animations are a little janky.
Sound: The voice-acting is Japanese only and the rest of the audio isn’t exactly memorable
Die Young is an impressive open-world title where you play as a young woman named Daphne trying to survive the dangers of a remote Mediterranean island. It is extremely satisfying to explore the vast island and slowly piece together the story. Seeing everything that Die Young has to offer should keep players busy for ages and apart from a few technical issues, the game comes highly recommended.
Gameplay: Exploring the vast island is a lot of fun, and there are a ton of things to see and do.
Graphics: Die Young is a great looking game once you max out all the visual options.
Sound: Decent soundtrack and sound effects, but some of the voice acting could be better
Spike Chunsoft has recently unveiled the latest gameplay trailer for their upcoming survival RPG, Zanki Zero: Last Beginning, and it is looking pretty interesting to say the least. For those unfamiliar with the title, it is a new type of survival game from the creators of the Danganronpa series, Yoshinori Terasawa and Takayuki Sugawara. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic world where you take control of eight protagonists who are not just fighting for their own survival, but also trying to figure out the meaning of their never-ending cycles of life and death
With close to 20,000 very positive reviews on Steam, there can be no doubt that 11 bit studios did a stellar job with their society survival game, Frostpunk. We have a feeling that the number of positive reviews will be increasing very soon as the game will be releasing worldwide on Mac OSX very soon. Mac OSX owners can look forward to getting their hands on Frostpunk from February 13, 2019 for the price of $29.99 / €32.99
Apart from an interesting gameplay gimmick on each of each five levels, Xenocide is a fairly basic and generic top down shooter. It only has five levels, a very limited selection of guns and a paltry amount of power-ups. Shooting waves of enemies while trying to stay alive is still fun for a short while, but it won’t take long to experience everything on offer and then grow bored of the repetition. While the basis for a good game is definitely there, Xenocide just never does anything to elevate it above the competition, which is a real pity as it had potential.
Gameplay: Running and shooting will always be fun, but the lack of weapons and variety results in repetition way too soon.
Graphics: The visuals are competent enough, but a little too bland.
Sound: Unimpressive sound effects, but the soundtrack at least sounds good
Help a mutating monster escape the clutches of some evil robots in this fun arcade-style survival game from Artix Entertainment. It features a nice assortment of monsters, all of whom can be customized to your liking using varies mutations. You also get to bash in plenty of robotic skulls, but helping your creature reach freedom is going to take quick reflexes. BioBeasts not only looks great, but it is also addictive enough that you’ll keep returning to it for just one more go. Best of all it is a free to play title that isn’t crammed with intrusive or unfair adverts and in-app purchases.
Gameplay: BioBeasts is simple to play, but very addictive and the ability to equip your creature with mutations provide it with plenty of variety.
Graphics: Everything from the creature designs to the look of the enemies and levels are top notch.
Sound: The music is fitting and the sound effects very good
Open world games are rather common these days, all vying to outdo each other in terms of scale and content, but not many literally promise you the moon. Deliver Us The Moon, from Dutch developers KeokeN Interactive, casually mentions “open world lunar exploration” as a feature, which should be enough to get any science fiction fan salivating. The game casts players in the role of a rogue astronaut who is sent to the moon on a secret mission to save humanity from extinction
Shattered Memories is sure to upset a few diehard fans but it is an interesting direction for the series. There are some very good ideas contained in this game but unfortunately just as much things that drag it down from being a really must-have title. The gripping storyline is enough to draw in fans of the series so if you have enjoyed the twisted tales of Silent Hill this far you might like this one.
Gameplay: A departure from the usual Silent Hill gameplay mechanics but with a gripping story..
Graphics: Some of the best on PSP.
Sound: Eerie tunes and good solid voice acting
