How many nights can will you survive?
There are tons of survival games in the market. some of them are interesting, some of them not so much. But they’re mostly the same. You start the game as “ugly naked guy”, punch some trees, get trolled by random people and wait 3 years for annoying bugs to get fixed. Survive The Nights is here to change that. It was first announced back in 2014 and got fully funded on Kickstarter with more than 6250 people supporting it.
Survive The Nights is survival multiplayer action game which focuses on realism and creating a unique gameplay. EVERYTHING in the game has a purpose. Every structure is unique, enterable and fortifiable. You can use boards, planks and furniture to fortify structers and use them as shelter or storage. But don’t forget to booby trap and protect them. There are also different types of vehicles in the game. Vehicles are very important in Survive The Nights. You can’t carry heavy boards and planks in your backpack. But you can fit plenty into the bed of a truck or the trunk of a car. Just like shelters, you must take a good care of your vehicles. Modify them, repair them, fill them with gas (Yes they need fuel to function) and take out some of their parts before leaving them in the wild. You don’t want random people to steal your precious vehicle, do you?
You’ll need certain tools to fortify homes and buildings, certain machinery to power homes or access water supplies. Machinery must be maintained or it will fail. There will be loads of weapons. You can use most items as weapons. You’ll be hard pressed to find yourself in a situation where you can’t defend your life with a weapon of some type. Being able to place window boards quickly and without worrying about powering the structure first could be the difference between life and a very bloody death.
So in Survive The Nights you have to take a good care of your shelter and vehicle but what about your own body?! Food and calorie intake should be a part of your daily routine. Realism will be maintained here. If you don’t eat for a few hours, you won’t die, but will become sluggish. Death from starvation should take a number of days at minimum. The opposite being true also: you with a high calorie diet will move faster, aim better, carry more weight…
You also have to keep your body temperature up in order to survive! I told you, it’s all about realism! If you’re a wanderer with no shelter, you can start a campfire in the woods. If you have a cozy home somewhere around the map, then you need a heating system and guess what?! You need power generators and electricity for that. Good luck! Other than keeping your body warm, you have to pay attention to both your physical and mental states. Broken bones, limbs or bad cuts will make your survival bloody and killing other players will eventually result in a mental breakdown.
Leveling system will also be old school and realistic which means you need to hunt to improve your trapping abilities. Shoot to improve your accuracy. Trap a lot to improve your return rate. Fortify multiple times to improve your carpentry skills! There’s so much more to this game but hopefully you’ve got a taste of what’s to come from A2Z Interavtive. Survive The Nights is unique, realistic and big. It’s planned to be released on Steam through Early Access in upcoming weeks and i can’t wait to survive 365 nights by being a d!ck to everyone i see in game!
