Garry Friedman, a veteran bush pilot in his early 40’s , still broken down emotionally after a tragic accident involving his wife and his little girl, drowns himself in alcohol every night to escape his torment. Now numb to the constant dangers he faces, Garry keeps signing up for impossible jobs; he gets the cash, doesn’t ask questions, business as usual. Some doubt his motives but Garry needs this danger now, he needs the adrenaline, it’s the closest he gets to feeling alive again.

On Friday, June 13, 2014, a transport job has him going to a research facility in Yellowstone and bringing the some cargo to Nevada; the drop coordinates would then be updated during the mission. But Garry would never reach his destination…

0700 hours, slight ground vibrations, not strong enough for anyone to notice.
0735 hours, Garry has loaded the cargo and is flying off
0740 hours, The Yellowstone super volcano starts erupting

The sudden gushes of poisonous fumes send Garry and his plane spiraling through the skies. While he tries to regain control, the artifacts inside his cargo start to activate. A sudden burst of energy explodes and suddenly Garry`s plane, and everything with it, crashes into the Amazonian jungle; the drop slowed down by the enormous flora.

0750 hours, Garry blacks out. The carcass of his plane lies amongst the trees.

Wild Games Studio presents:

An extraordinary adventure awaits, where you will need to survive through hostile environments, explore ancient civilizations, and discover a truth that will change your understanding of the world, forever!

This cargo might have saved your life once, but what happens next?

It’s all up to you …Day One

I don't know what I have just played.
The gameplay is bad, the story is bad, the sound is also bad.
Everything in this game is bad.

At first, I can play and run the game just fine.
But after clearing the 1st stage (temple), it run for me like 5fps. Unplayable at all.
Seriously don't get this game even if it's FREE.

I have a lot of games in my backlog, that I have bought which I likely will not play at any time in the future. But I like supporting the developers of games which appeal to me.

That being said, I have bought this game in one of the sales for 1.99 USD AND I WANT MY 1.99 USD back.
If there is ONE game in the whole Steam library, that should be taken off..
Wait.
Stop.
This is not the way i want to make this review...

If there is ONE game that should make Valve introduce a money-back guarantee, then this is it.

This game looks good in the store but once you actually install it and play it you realise why it has so many bad reviews.

For a start the graphics are awful. I mean you would think a game released in late 2013 would look good. Especially when games like Skyrim were out in 2011 for christ sake! But no! This piece of crap decided to use horrible graphics!

Then theres the story. It sucks! Basically you are a guy called Gary (No ♥♥♥♥!) and your plane crashes leaving you in a 'Mysterious' forest and you have to survive. And thats basically it as far as story goes, except for some ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ about a dead familiy.

Then of course theres the actual gameplay, you know seeing as this is supposed to be a game, basically its just your average survival game. Theres a crafting system (which sucks) , it lets you make stuff like medicine and bandages. You can find food to eat and drink water. You can interact wit locals by either killing them, trying to ignore them or do the occasional quest for them. Theres also weapons you can find. At the start you get a wooded stick, which for some strange reason is incredibly effective, later on you find an old timey double barreled pistol in a temple(WTF is it in a temple for?) and even later on you get a regular pistol, aside from that i dont know as i hated this game so much that i stopped playing it after that. The ony other weapon i encountered was a magical one shot energy cannon that is permanently strapped to your wrist. Although its meant for destroying walls it can be used as a weapon. I personally loved the idea of this weapon but what i hated about it is that it only carries one shot and you practically never get to recharge it( which is done at altar thingies).The guns you get are ridicoulsly under-powered and pretty much useless, where as your stick is very effecttive. It can kill enemies pretty quickly and if you sneak up behind people you can do a pretty cool execution-style stealth attack which is one hit kill. What i hated were the enemies that i encountered. The most common enemies are natives and i kid you not, MONKIES!!!!! The navives are easy to kill as long as you use the afforementioned stealth attack but otherwise they are really hard to beat. The monkies are actually suprisingly difficult to kill considering what they are. They basically hide and throw rocks at you and if you don't find them they will kill you quite quickly, if you do find them they just run away and start throwing stones again. This brings me to another point, the natives will sometimes just ignore you but other times will completely randomly go ape-♥♥♥♥ and attack you. What i found most annoying about this is that if a monkey attacks you and you attack it it will sometimes run to a native who will then come and attack you, so you have to deal with two enemies at once!

Overall i personally really hated this game and would not recommend it to anyone. This game tried hard to be fun but in the end it failed and just ended up a bad far cry clone.

So crap starts shaking and I randomly start doing me bandages. I see an enemy approach me, he simply stares as I do my bandages for some reason. Finally I am done and I hit the left click, this blue thing fires and it kills both of us...
"Your progress has been auto-saved"
Now whenever I load the game I just die and it loads the same save again and I die and again and again and again.

Played this from start to finish

Unbiased Review

After about more than a year since release, I decided to check this game out myself - to see whether the other reviewers might have been too harsh. Many of them played a few minutes and denounced it immediately. I have gone from start to finish. The game can safely be said to be 'complete', as in the developers won't add anything significant to better the experience. So why is this game so bad?

A few facts:
- 5 weapons available, where only 2 (wooden machete and M9 pistol) are actually used for most of the game
- Crafting boils down to merely creating bandages, you can complete the entire game without crafting anything else
- Crafting is limited to 7 items (8 in survival mode)
- There are a total of 4 kinds of enemies, that pose virtually no threat whatsoever, due to inferior AI coding
- The entire game can be completed in less than 4 hours
- Shooting inanimate objects causes them to bleed
- The single voice actor delivers his badly written lines in such way that you would quickly consider turning it off
- A great deal of the game takes place in a temple area (The Maze), this area is riddled with instant death traps that are springed upon you for the obvious reason to infuriate the player and slow progress further into the temple
- Level design makes frequent back-tracking unavoidable - in the maze it means constantly having to avoid the same traps over and over again
- All enemies respawn after loading a save
- Survival aspect in single player is negligable, due to readily available resources in all areas of the game
- Your biggest threat will be the rock throwing monkeys and instant death traps
- Animation quality is very low, this will be apparent from the very start of the game
- No quicksave, despite the fact that frequent saving is absolutely mandatory
- Most of the game mechanics rely on QTE's - bandaging takes about 20 seconds to complete

A note on the added survival mode:
A rather small section of the singleplayer map is isolated for you to 'survive as long as you can' - this entails running around in the day gathering food and crafting materials, then using a shelter to sleep at night. Due to the extremely barebones crafting system and the fact that everything is so easily obtainable, this experience does nothing to redeem the game whatsoever. If this kind of survival experience is desired, titles such as The Forest does this better in every aspect.

So tl;dr - if you're looking for a survival game, there are plenty of other superior titles available. This game hasn't been too harshly judged by others, it fails in every aspect of gameplay from start to finish. For the morbidly curious, this game is an exercise in self-torture - it's not conducive towards any lulz whatsoever.

"10/10, I LOVE the new thing the developers did that makes you ALWAYS spawn under the map!"
"Bugs? Pffft. No way. 10/10 would play"

Final Verdict: 0/10. This game is perfect toilet paper though :)

This game is the best gift for revenge. Send it to people you want to watch them suffered.

Very recommend for someone who want to commit suicide but don't have enough of courage. Trust me, when you play this game, you will want to end your life as quick as you can. This is the most fearsome weapon that human ever created.

Short version:

Prometheus,in eternal punishment,was chained to a rock where his liver was eaten daily by an eagle,only to be regenerated by night,due to his immortality.
This game feels exactly like that.

Long version:

Pros:

-it ends,eventually,after having sucked the will to live out of you.
-they never made a second episode.


Cons:

-buggy,very buggy...cutscenes making you stuck,teleporting you to beginning or worse,you die for getting stuck to scenery,you die while walking,your health meter bugs out,mobs can still hit you even if the animations don't play,unfinished game menu,alt tabbing makes the floor disappear,also CTDs

-graphics can look decent sometimes,but some parts have horrible models,also overall ugly textures

-background sounds and some music can be acceptable,but Garry's voice,enemy grunts and animal voices are subpar and get old fast

-story is almost non-existant,and what's there is either not explained or makes no sense whatsoever,also useless quest descriptions

-horrible AI,horrible enemy placement (easy to get swarmed by 6 monkeys)

-subpar controls,clunky,slow-ish,combat is basic and awfully animated,also I hope you enjoy having to go through a quicktime event every time you need to heal

-awful insteadeath traps,so many of them,paired with the awful controls it gets frustrating fast

-bad level design,who knows where the levers you need are? also if you missed one,good luck going back to it passing the dozen or so instadeath traps

-the survival part is useless,I only crafted bandages,that's all,you get tons of food and water anyway...and the thirst/hunger bars deplete so slowly that they're not an issue anyway

-they never made a second episode,but they've managed to make another game,so yeah...there's that..

Overall,stay away from this....I've only played through it as a dare,and it was awful.

You deserve better than this,whoever you are.
