📰 Survival Community Roundup
The Front released into Early Access, though I doubt it has any survival mechanics at all. The trailer looks like they threw a ton of ideas at the wall to see what stuck, and reviews are a solid “Mixed”, citing bugs and gameplay issues. Maybe let it bake for a while.
UNDYING has pushed its 1.0 full release back to December 7th. Billed as an overhaul to the entire game ‘From story to combat, from survival to dungeons, there's a whole new world to explore, secrets to find, and characters to meet!’ - you can read about the changes and check out the video here.
Fractured Veil has delayed Early Access release to January 18, 2024.
With 10 days to go, Endzone 2 is fully funded! Time to rock those stretch goals.
The Kickstarter page for Groenland is set to launch soon. I’ll pull together an article or something on the game, but it’s billed as “An Open-World Viking Survival Horror game set in the harsh and unforgiving landscape of fantasy designed 15th-century Greenland”
Content and News
Forever Skies players will be happy to know that the Viral Evolution Update (previously called "October Update") will be live on Monday, October 16th! Get ready for some creepy new critters! (And other things.)
Speaking of large content updates, Icarus recently released a novel-sized patch note detailing the release of Hypatia Part One. Basically MUCH CONTENT, so go read about it.
Thank you for finally bringing back one of the planes, SCUM. Not like I’ve found one yet, but still.
If you’re not part of their Discord, the developers of Endzone 2 are finally putting Devlogs on Steam- the news was previously posted to Discord only.
I think this game will end up being a low-key cozy builder, but Under a Rock posted their first Dev Blog.
