Having added a cheat mode, I wanted to give people a reason not to cheat so I've introduced Awardments - aka the non-copyright infringing version of Achievements. If you use cheats, the game will remember it (and will mark your savegame accordingly) and prevent you from unlocking Awardments in that game. So you could give yourself an RPG and blast through everything to complete the game - but you won't get any Awardments from that playthrough.

(However, you can change your appearance without disabling awardments, as that has no effect on gameplay - except for your gender, which does affect a few things).

And of course, if the game gets on Steam the Awardments will be implemented as Steam Achievements :)

Release date: Already available on Desura and XBox Live Indie Games
It's one year after the collapse of civilization and self-centered hedge fund manager Joe Wheeler emerges from his specially constructed bunker in search of food. This is a story-driven survival game where the aim is to find other survivors, gain their respect, and build a community.

You'll have to maintain a steady insulin supply for a diabetic woman, solve the mystery of why certain people have disappeared from a nearby community, and search for a truck full of stolen gold bullion that will make you unimaginably wealthy in the new gold-based economy. You'll scavenge for supplies, trade, plant crops, go on quests, face moral dilemmas, go to war, and uncover dark, terrible secrets! Or you could just kill everyone you meet, it probably won't get you very far but the choice is yours.

This game is already available on Desura and XBox 360. There is a free trial version that allows you to play for 30 minutes (1 day in game time) on Desura. The full game generally takes about 15-20 hours to play through if you do all the quests.



"I have to say I love this game. It’s a robust game filled with moral and physical obstacles while giving a grand look on the narrative of humanity and the choices we make. (5/5)" - The Indie Mine[]

"Survivalist is an intense experience, one of the most content-packed, feature-rich games on the indie channel. It is not to be missed." - The XBLIG[]

"incredibly well-crafted... Survivalist for XBLIG is a Stunner (4.5/5)" - Indie Game Reviewer[]

It's available now - sorry for the inconvenience. I thought it would just appear automatically but it turns out I needed to trigger something manually.
