The Early Access version of the survival RPG DYSMANTLE is now available:

Welcome to the bittersweet Apocalypse

  • Fight with (or run away) nasty and vile creatures of the post-apocalyptic era.
  • Explore the handcrafted open world and uncover its mysteries.
  • Survive. Clear areas of monsters and claim it as yours.
  • Build outposts to establish your presence.
  • Craft permanent weapons, tools, outfits, and trinkets.
  • Hunt dangerous game or tame them for your post-apocalyptic zoo ranch.

Nice little game, played the EA for about 20h. I think the map is too big though, could get boring when full content is out.

It is a nice game, even though imo the combat is ridiculous.

Can't go toe-to-toe, so … attack … back off … attack … back off … attack
Repeat until it's dead.

A little necro maybe but I've played this long enough to give it a mini-review:

You start by climbing out of your personal shelter/man sewer once you run out of supplies. You have clothes and a crowbar. Most of you game will be smashing items and taking parts from them. Food/Water are not needed and you start in an area that is temperate, so heat and cold aren't a problem; at least at first.

Some fun mechanics are the cooking recipes. These are found in various houses as you explore. There are dozens of them and each gives a permanent buff to your character the first time you cook it. Further cookings will typically heal you. One of the goals is to find and activate cell towers. Once you've done that you can link them by using special orbs that boss zombies carry. Doing this will allow fast travel between the linked towers. I think this also stops respawning. Monsters respawn any time you camp or die. You need to camp to level your skills and so respawning is frequent. Of course, the average monster fight is about 3 seconds and most combat is trivial. The monsters also carry items that you need to improve your gear. I've been quite sick for the last week or so and this game is what I play when I'm awake and idle.

Hospital docs think Cellulitis. Joyful Christmas Got some massive antibiotics and a very painful lower left leg.

you need to install something on the tower to stop mobs from respawning, i forgot the name; anyway i believe the map is way too big, i was at max level and 70% was still not explored

Thanks for the review, nut. I'm surprised you didn't mention this one in your survival game thread.

Overwhelmingly positive reviews on Steam. I've got too much on my plate to mess with it right now, but I've wishlisted it.

I've not done a survival-type game in a while, so thanks for bringing this to our attention. I'll keep an eye on this one!

The main reason is that there are no real survival elements. No hunger or thirst or need to sleep, etc. There are some temperature extremes, but that's about it. It looks like a survival game but it's really a zombie killer game with tons of crafting. Food crafting for buffs and most everything else is around killing zombies or getting into places.
