Nice... been following those guys at Hinterland games for about a year on Twitter. Good to see it's coming to consoles now.
Well it's certainly different and certainly does not hold your hand. I managed to survive 23 hours before dying off internal bleeding after falling down a cliff.
Looks and feels good but as the only mode available is the open sandbox mode then it's hard to know what is going on. I am sure the Story mode will be a bit better.
I quite enjoyed it, although i got eaten by a wolf after about 26 hours trying to find a source of water was a pain. It also looks like the items are procedurally generated along with where you spawn, as i was doing better in my 2nd go, then the hour ended.
Yeah I enjoyed what I played, art style was great.
I did not come across any wolves though just an empty building and frozen corpses and a derailed train which I thought I could get up to but ended up falling off a cliff.
I am tempted in stumping up the £16 for it
Aha, you followed the railway, i went across the lake and found lots of cabins. Night-time was a bitch though as it was almost pitch black and i didnt have enough resource to make a torch. It was tempting to buy, but i am unsure how much more gameplay i would have got out of the sandbox mode, beyond exploring and crafting.
Spent quite a bit more time on this over the weekend guys. From my Sunday afternoon Live stream, 11 hours survived so far and I get a bit excited to find a gun lol.
After many hours of gameplay, things start to look a bit grim. Low food and nothing to hunt with.... Until.

Hi guys, for anyone interested in more game play, from Tuesday nights Live Stream.
After finally acquiring the gun, we need to hunt or starve.

Ah it cut off, I was enjoying that!
I played the demo hour and was impressed, didn't hit the buy as I wondered just how much content was there at the moment. What are your impressions now you're further in?
Excellent vids as always.
It's hard to make a highlight and cut it at the right time with Twitch as it runs on a bit for some reason.
I really like the game, its great trying to get a foothold and then trying to maintain it. There is always this feeling of Danger and impending Doom magnified by the fact that you only have one life, when you're dead you're dead.
I think its a cracking game and I'm looking forward to more updates beyond the Alpha.

Really liking the look of this, quite like games that don't 'have a point' - has there been anyone that survives the wilderness and makes it to civilisation or is that not possible as the game currently stands?
I've not been on it for around four weeks but the game has seen some really nice updates recently with new regions added and gameplay refinements etc. I don't think you can escape the game at the moment but I know that there are human NPC's on the way and a story mode.
It's a brilliant game.
Do you reckon the price will go up once it's past the alpha/beta stage?
Don't quote me buddy. If it does, it wont be by much, judging by Elite anyway. If you fancy the game pull the trigger, no pun
Will check the demo out and maybe add this to the pile of shame
I played the hour trial over the weekend and surprisingly found myself really enjoying it. A nice exploration survival twist, the pressing need to keep moving and discovering was well done. Good crafting options and the need to keep warm and eat adds to the picture. Took the plunge myself.
Saying that, it is crashing on me now, which is a real shame, as it was fine in the trial. Hopefully something to be fixed - it is an alpha after all.
Good to know it had you hooked, think one thing I'm a bit worried about is the tension, I like the idea of using this as a fairly relaxing game, the time/calorie dwindling stress might just ruin it a bit for me - do you feel like you're up against it loads food and heat wise?
It's tough to say whether it was my noobness in the one hour I had that kept me on the edge of dying or whether the game always balances like that. But yeah, I felt the need to keep pressing on and discovering. It's not exactly fast paced, so it's kinda relaxed from that point of view.
I'll check it out when I know I've got a completely free hour from her indoors and see how it goes
I've not played much of it since it's been updated, I was going to wait till they released the retail version now before going back. I've really enjoyed what I've played but didn't want to do too much till its fully featured.
I would say there's always a pressure there to push on as you'll need food and warmth constantly so if you stay in one place for too long your resources will run out fairly quickly or you won't have enough supplies to make it till you find more.
Strange thing is apparently this survival mode was actually never meant to be as such. It was thrown in for early access as a sandbox style test bed for the story mode to see how it all worked. It was liked so much by the community that they decided to keep it in the final product as its own mode.
On a few occasion, loot dependant, I've managed to survive for days and days in one area. Rabbit traps are good for this kind of activity, then when supplies run low I move on.
My second spawn was right in a fully featured cabin with food and loads of firewood. A complete contrast to my first spawn in the middle of nowhere half dead. Strange!
Loot is often random too. I think my current game is upto 45 days survived.
Hi Guys, I'm surprised that this thread has been idle since Jan 16.
I've been documenting my own journey to 365 days of survival and, as usual, have ended up in some funny situation so far, much to the amusement of the viewers on Twitch.
If you're bored, guys. Enjoy. =)

This is currently £8 on the store. Has there been many changes since it was released as a trial?
I've not played it since then so I'm thinking of buying it.
Huge updates and new regions to explore. Basically the last update introduced Frost Bite, clothing getting wetter and heavier the longer you stay outside in the snow, plus you can now layer clothing, just to name a few things. An absolute bargain for £8 buddy.
Might pick this up, dead cheap in Russia but that's becoming a PITA to buy from these days.
How much does it work out from Russia?
I'm after picking it up to but also got to watch my spending, I've gone a bit daft recently with buying games.
