A Survival Game With a Twist

Generate your own world in-game by placing isometric tiles. When you reach the edge of a tile, you decide what’s next!

Make your decisions carefully, as your tile placement will affect your resource availability and can alter your chances of survival.

Brave the Wilderness

Satisfy your basic needs: thirst, hunger, fatigue, and sanity. Protect yourself against dangerous predators like animals, bandits or - even worse - the lost souls that are walking the land.

Base Building + Farming

Invest your resources into building your own cabin and construct a base for both defense and shelter. Sow seeds you collect throughout the world and harvest the crops to increase your chances of survival.
