Posted Today, But Not Counting Today! Snippets- July 31, 2023
I'll try and pop up a second Snippets later with today's news.
‼️ Save the date! Rooted will release a video of Alpha footage TODAY.
They also plan to release two announcements, including the alpha release date.
‼️ Infection Free Zone has an updated demo! Everyone at Hashtag Survival loved the original demo during Next Fest, so we encourage you to try the game out! (Steam News)
‼️ Icarus is set to release its first major expansion on August 24th, with a new map, new biomes, alien creatures, and story missions. (Steam News)
‼️ Sunkenland has announced an Early Access release date of August 25 at 6 PM PDT. Can’t wait! (Steam News)
▻ Last week was mostly about swapping everything on the Ghost platform to Substack. I imported posts and subscriptions. Becca pointed the domain to the new platform. I did a first draft of the About page, and things look pretty decent overall.
Don’t Miss Out
Enjoy playing Raft? Like Space? Check out Life Not Supported. If you like it, I would encourage hopping into Discord to provide feedback directly to the developer; there’s fantastic community engagement there.
I love following along with development updates for Wanderlost. It’s adorable, and I bet it will be enjoyable AF on Switch.
Mist Survival is still alive and threw a thing on the Beta Branch for game owners to check out.
SCUM is introducing some terrible (in a good creepy way) shit in this trailer video! I’m a little sad that the game was most recently plagued with issues for me - as in, Dee and I couldn’t log in to servers- but hopefully, that’s been fixed.
Neat media images in the latest dev log from Aloft. Progress towards multiplayer and the reveal of new biome art.
If you’re a fan of The Pioneers: Surviving Desolation, you were probably stoked when they introduced their first vehicle last week. A lot of detail and content to dig into with the patch notes.
The developer of Deadpoly has been working on a game rebuild for quite a while now- the amount of change, content, and detail work showcased in the progress posts has been impressive. Here’s a video! Technically, this news is from today since he posted at 4 AM my time; the developer did upload a tech demo-quality version of the changes to a beta branch of the game. Please back up your saves before checking it out- for safety!
Grounded made a little announcement during their Birthday stream.
Pushing forward with development, the creator of Last Whisper Survival has dropped another dev log. I’m still reading “generic apoc zombie survival”, with images that could have come from a handful of upcoming or current games. But I appreciate the detailed list of changes.
Icarus continues with their weekly content updates, though I do find how they implemented shields weird. They also dropped some tiny little decorator DLC last month. Perhaps it’s time for me to hop back into the game; I haven’t loaded it up since they did that Open World change.
SCUM implemented a support ticket website/system. Neat. I haven’t tried it yet, but rest assured; I will hit them up this coming week if I still cannot connect to gameservers.
Nightingale dropped a video Developer Update. Overall the vibe I’m getting is Conan mixed with the look- and some mechanics- of New World. (Minus the weird PvP element of NW.) I'm getting less of a survival/difficulty feel than Icarus, so I’m curious to see how that feels when I eventually get my hands on it.
Full disclosure, I haven’t had the time to open up Forever Skies since it was released. Plan to! But it does seem like they’re adding bits of content and making tweaks based on community feedback.
Small note, but Dawn of Man is officially playable on Steam Deck.
The Survival: Fountain of Youth developers have been teasing bits of content from the upcoming patch, slated to drop around the start of August. The latest tease is traps!
Nice to see more games adding/planning to add the ability to play as a woman. Good job, Medieval Dynasty.
One of those nice, chunky Project Zomoid dev log/development updates. Bring snacks, there are a lot of videos to dig through.
Winter Survival will be released with a handful of animals available at launch. Shame I’m still so meh over the Prologue gameplay.
Quick shout out and props to the developers of Homeseek for being so receptive - and reactive- to community feedback.
Got a sale AND a content update for The Pale Beyond!
