Survive Weekly Update - 5/19/2015
Quick Development Update
Description
Survive is a first person zombie survival shooter set in a procedurally generated open world. The idea of the game is what would you do in the zombie apocalypse. You are put in a random house in a huge completely procedurally generated world. You have to explore the random world to find the food, water, and guns you will need to survive the zombie horde.

Survive is very early in development and is using a game engine completely written from scratch by Subsurface Games. Most of the development work so far has gone into creating the engine. The engine just go to the point where all future work is being devoted to gameplay.

Survive will also have Crafting, Multiplayer, Traps, Dynamic Barricading, Land Vehicles, Air Vehicles, and Survivor npc's. All of these features and more are described in detail in this blog post: http://www.subsurfacegames.com/BlogPosts.jsp?id=10#Survive-Features

If you preorder Survive from our website you can download the latest build of the game right now and receive a free steam key when the game gets greenlit! You can preorder Survive for $19.95 here: http://www.subsurfacegames.com/survive

You can think of this game more as a zombie apocalypse simulator. If you think right now in your head your exact plan for a zombie apocalypse (which I'm sure all of you have thought of at least once) I want you to be able to do it in the game. The whole goal of the game is to simply survive. There are no quests, there is no story line, and there are no goals. The only goals you have are the ones you set for yourself to survive, such as find guns, find food, find water, or find shelter. Everything that you think should be possible in the game will be. If you want a natural source of fresh water then maybe you should find a cabin on a river. If you don't want to worry about food go to the nearest grocery store and barricade the doors. Think you will need guns (you will), then head to the police station or the nearest sporting goods store. Worried about the heavily populated areas like stores being overrun with the infected (they will be), then maybe the cabin on the river is a better idea. The point is everything will be as true to life as possible to create a genuine zombie apocalypse experience.

The game world will be completely procedurally generated and you will start in a random house in a random person's life (you will most likely be able to customize you character and his/her attributes). You wake up to the dynamic sounds of npc screams and police sirens in the distance. You must do whatever it takes to survive. Because the world is procedurally generated it allows for unlimited replay ability. The game will never get old because you will always play in a new world with new challenges and places. The procedural generation will also allow for one of the most important parts of this game. It will allow you to enter into literally every single house and building you see without a loading screen. I really hate it in games when, as the player, you see a house or a building in the distance and really want to go inside it only to be disappointed and pulled out of the game world when you realize you can't go inside. It reminds you that you are just playing a game and not really running for your life in a zombie apocalypse. The only problem is that it's just way to time consuming to have an artist or a designer go though and lay out every single house or building in the world and fill them with props. The only realistic way we could achieve this is with procedural generation.

I'd really like this but it says funding was unsuccessful...does this mean it's not actually been released yet then?

Sorry for any ignorance...I've only just found out that this game got greenlit. :)
