It feels like it's been Halloween forever.
As we creep closer to Halloween - and Steam’s Halloween sale- more and more developers are activating their Halloween events and loot. (Like these neat State of Decay 2 outfits.)
Survive the Nights trick-or-treat event looks terrifying.
Maybe even some Halloween stuff for The Infected?
Less than 10 hours to go to back Endzone 2 on Kickstarter!

▻ Changed the Substack About page to a new onboarding list to help folks out when navigating our content.
▻ I’m still trudging through my work on the new game directory. You can view the work-in-progress database at this link. THIS IS A NEW LINK. I went ahead and deactivated incomplete cards, so it looks empty but the cards available are complete.
Feedback is incredibly welcome, so hop into the comments or contact me on Discord.
▻ If you’re part of our Discord (and you really should be), don’t forget to tell me if you’re a Substack subscriber so I can give you your role!
▻ Speaking of subscribers, I want to welcome all the new faces brought here by SnowBee’s awesome shoutout (timestamped link) in his most recent video. Did you know we featured SnowBee a few weeks ago in our Acquired Tastes article?
▻ The Curator lists have been axed from the page until the Notion game database is complete. At that point, I’ll sit and reorganize everything.
⏳ Sales 💰
Check the full list on our Curator page.

📰 Survival Community Roundup
In theory, ARK: Survival Ascended will be released in the next few hours, but I’ll be asleep. So enjoy your dinos!
The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria was released as an Epic exclusive, if that’s your jam.
(Epic Game Store)
Just the stuff we’ve previously announced.
Browsing Kickstarter as always. Cruach seems...interesting. I mean, is there anyone who isn’t interested in seeing exactly how they pull off a “Survival Horror Extraction game set in 19th Century Ireland”? And then there’s Scorching Desert, which takes place *checks notes* in a desert, but also has ‘ various different biomes’.
