TGIF! Snippets- March 24, 2023
Survival news to keep you motivated on a rainy day. (Works for me!) 💙
🐍 Above Snakes will be released on May 25th!
⏰ Survival: Fountain of Youth has a new trailer and a release date of April 19th!
⏰ Less than a week until Smalland: Survive the Wilds is released! The drop date is March 29th.
❗Save the date! On April 2nd, Veil of Dust officially leaves Early Access for V1 full release!
‣ Dee and I have been working on fleshing out the descriptions for the subgenre project; I think it's going pretty well! These definitions are by no means set in stone. I haven't even tagged every game yet. Join the discussion on the Hashtag Survival Discord and add your two cents!
‣ The filter system on the main game directory is a bit closer to completion. I've swapped how we filter single-player vs. multiplayer games, adding a second set of refinement filters and a short written description. The available platform list has also been updated.
‣ I finally got around to adding Rooted to the upcoming games directory. I'm still kinda SUS about it.

⁉️ Above Snakes Prologue! Great plan for your weekend!
