About This Game

This is an early ALPHA release of MISCREATED. The current feature set is limited, but will be increased as development continues. You will experience issues during gameplay - incomplete features, bugs, game crashes, performance issues, and even complete character wipes.

Nobody knows what started the Final War — it was over too fast, fought with the last of the belligerent nations’ nuclear stockpiles, and the ones who pulled the triggers didn’t survive. It was the Final War because after that there was really nobody left who wanted to fight; we were all too busy surviving. Half a century of wars using nukes, bioweapons, nanoweapons, and even kinetic-kill weapons, gave us the Empty World: population 100 million and falling fast.

Who’s to blame? Depends on who you are, but you could just as easily blame the weapons industry; by the end, virtually every arms dealer in the world was owned by Amalgamated Corporation; while everyone was fighting they’d been buying up what Karl Marx used to call “the means of production,” and in the end missiles on both sides proudly wore the AC label.

Hell, in the end AC made just about everything, AC Sportsdrinks, AC Icecream, AC Battlegear, even AC Happytabs. I miss those. AC even gave us our wonderful mutant problem; the “vaccine” they developed when radiation sickness became as common as seasonal pneumonia from all those dirty battlefields — all the weapons-grade isotopes getting into the water table, or the fish, or the air — reacted with some of the leftover bioweapons and made lots of people go as squirrely as tab-pumped cannibals. You can ignore a neighbor developing neo-elephantitis or novuleprosy, but when he tries to eat you, you’ve got to take an interest.

So that’s it, we’re done, civilization is taking a breather. In 2089, anyone left alive and unmutated is just focused on staying that way. There are stories of enclaves here and there, where they’re lucky enough to have plenty of food stockpiled and mutants are thin on the ground or there’s lots of ammunition to throw at them. My advice is find one. Or make one. The Earth abides, all this too shall pass away, and if Darwin blesses you then you or your kids will inherit what’s left. For now, it’s one day at a time.

Current Features in the Early Access Release

Only a portion of the current map is available to play on. We will expand it as fast as we can.

Base Building:
  • Completely freeform basebuilding system - the Miscreated basebuilding system is different from all of the other existing survival games available and it gives you total control to make as complex and pretty of a base as you want. This is not the typical, snap-together Lego style system other games have.
  • Over 100 different parts are currently available for your base, with more coming soon.
  • Several different categories (with many subcategories and types) of parts available - wood, sand, tires, powered. Metal to be added in a future patch.
  • Anyone can interact with your base - repair parts, turn lights on/off, open/close unlocked doors, turn generators on/off. Non-clan members cannot alter the structure of your base - add/remove parts, attach/detach parts to power.
  • Find crafting guides to learn more advanced basebuilding recipes. You can also find someone that knows a part's recipe you don't and politely ask them to make the part for you.
  • Join a clan to have fellow clan members help you build your base.
  • Basebuilding restrictions - bases cannot be placed in towns or some other key areas to prevent griefing in those areas. Other players also cannot build bases very close to your base.
  • Pack up and move undamaged parts - if damaged, you can repair them first, or you can dismantle damaged parts to get one of the crafting materials back.
  • Damaged states for parts - at each 25% damage the color of a damaged part will darken more.

  • Clans are persistent (remembered between server restarts and logging in/out) and per server.
  • Clans can be created, disbanded, and you can invite other players to your clan by targeting them and using the mouse wheel option.
  • Invited players can decline an invite or accept it.
  • Clan owner can promote other clan members to be a clan captain, so they can invite new, or remove existing, clan members.
  • For this release, all clan members can alter the structure of any clan owned bases. In a future release there will be more specific permission controls added.

In-game VoIP with distance attenuation

Five vehicles are currently fully functional in the game. Scavenge for parts to get them running!

A basic crafting system is implemented allowing you to make more powerful melee weapons and items such as advanced bandages. The crafting system is being expanded as the game progresses.

Realistic Bullet Physics:
Bullet trajectory will change based on gravity, air resistance, and wind.

Random Encounters
Encounters can be spawned dynamically and located anywhere on the map.

Dynamic Item Spawns
Weapons and items will usually be found in logical places, but can also be found anywhere in the world. Be sure to check everywhere for items – lockers, stoves, cupboards, and many more. Some appliances can be opened to look inside.

Persistent Characters
Your character’s stats and items will be saved when you exit the game. When you log back in, you will have your health, items and location all restored.

Comprehensive Inventory System
Store items on your character and collect weapons, ammo and other useful items. You can also find additional items to increase the amount of storage space your character has – like backpacks, shirts, and pants.

Food and Water Systems
Keep your hunger and water levels up in order for your character to function at maximum efficiency. Low levels of food and hunger have a negative impact on your character’s performance.

When you die all of the items you were carrying stay with your character’s corpse. Other player’s can take them, or you can retrieve them yourself if they are still there when you get back to the corpse.

Free-for-all PVP
Kill anyone at anytime and steal their loot. There are no safe zones. However, it will be very beneficial in the long run to make a few friends.

Dynamic Weather System
Rain, fog, wind, and other weather patterns are all dynamically generated and will create unique game play opportunities. The intensity of weather patterns will also be supported – from light fog to dense fog, for example.

Full Day/Night Cycles
Charge in during the day or wait until night time for a sneaky approach. The game features a real 24 hour clock based on the location of the server you are playing on.

First and Third Person Camera Views
Switch views based on personal preference

10/10 awesome deceiving simulator

sorry random guy, i'm sure emre was a good person.
Unfortunately the shining garden gnome in your crate was more important.

so this is my experience of miscreated.....

I ran into a youtuber/twitch steamer named Mr. moon. Mr.Moon took my friend and I hostage... then he killed my friend and told me to get new friends.

After that I drove off to the distance. I hid my car and never played the game ever since.

A hard-core survival game that leaves you checking around every corner.

Miscreated is a beautiful game, the forest and grass look amazing and as you wonder though the open world you really do get the feeling that you are in fact surviving. The player v player aspect is brutal, almost everyone will shoot first and ask questions later so keep your whits about you and trust no one. The PVE aspect is somewhat lacking.. in the 9 hours I've played I've only seen 3 zombies, but do remember that this is an early access game and I am sure this will be changed as the game develops. Looting is a long task, finding a weapon is quite hard and ammo the same story but both can be found with a bit of persistence, food and water can easily be found within any of the built up areas and random tools and items can be found throughout these areas also. There are vehicles on the game and most require you to collect parts to get them functioning (batteries, spark plugs etc) but again this is a quite easy talk.

All in all I am very impressed with this game so far, when you spot an enemy you have to make a quick decisions, Kill/be killed or Run and hide and this really does increase your heart rate, especially if you have just found some good loot and dont want to lose it.

A totally absorbing survival game.

I would definitely recommend this game to any survival game fan.

this game is amazing, dont let yourself be discouraged by some minor bugs here and there, mostly desync and server disconnects.

the map is awesome, not that big like dayz but really well designed, atmospheric and you have the feeling that your actually part of the world, the lightning is the best i have seen in a long time.

pvp is good, you can actually hide in foliage and shadows, ive had great pvp moments so far. the community is friendlier than most survival games. open world survival game in cryengine as what everyone dreamt about. some people might take some time to adapt to the menus and UI but after that is smooth experience.

i have played several open world survival games and this is the one that nailed it the most, the devs are really good and actively communicate with the players, and they know what they are doing regarding the game progression.

there is no microtransactions so this is not a moneymilk scheme like H1*cough*... its really world the 20€ but at 10€ you are picking up a relic. give it a try, playing solo is great but with friends its even better.

<the game dont have advertisment but is now gaining popularity, support this game by buying it if you like survival games, you will surely not regret it, just make sure to have a good gaming machine because it is a bit demanding :)

Product received for free
I have over than 1600 hours on DayZ and havinh only 400 on Miscreated i can say that is the best survival game at the moment. There are wolves, different speces of mutant, each one different and most powerful. You can play PVE or have PVP. Be an explorer, an hero or a bandit, you can find so many weapons and cars. You can build up a base where you can store your stuff, change your clothes to adapt the bihome and backpacks to carry more loot. the map is not finished yet and when it will be is gonna be enough if you think about all the details all around the game world. Developers are quick to answer questions and solve your problems, they release updates frequently.
The best at the moment.

This game is the apotheosis of amazing
In the like 2 hours I played with my homie we hunted a Truck through a stormy night like spec ops, we got to an amazing radio tower that's like the absolute definition of "Athmospheric" (and I found 7 buckshot rounds for my shotgun which was awesome too) we wrestled with a ♥♥♥♥ING TORNADO on our way to Pinecrest for food and my homie Space Pickles BARELY made it out he was already getting whirled aruond by it, then we came across a perfectly secluded and beautiful patch of nature with a big mesmerizing waterfall where we found a small adorable frog that I decided to call Fronko the Froggo HE MADE THESE CUTE BWORK BWORKING NOISES AND JUMPED AROUND AND WAS JUST ONE OF THE MOST ADORABLE SENTIENT BEINGS TO HAVE EVER EXISTED ON THIS PLANET, then we made it to pinecrest but encountered a group of like 8 players, I heard gunfire so I thought pickles died but WRONG SIR WRONG

BEST OF ALL, we played for prolonged amounts of times now and we STILL haven't even explored most of the map nor have we ever carried any of the bigger guns yet.
I can't wait to log like 2000 hours playtime into this.
I usually write gramatically correctly but this game is so amazing and adrenaline pumping in nearly every single aspect that I literally can't control myself boasting how awesome this is.

also add female characters and more apocalyptic looking clothing when you have the time to :D


This is a screenshot from pickles with the frog standing next to me :)

I have to say, this game is pretty good. Yes it might have been bad before, but with the constant development from the developers from the last few months have really improved the game. The game itself have made me feel like I was actually in the aftermath of an viral apocoplyps with its surroundings, landscapes, and weather.

The things I hope for in the future is a bigger map, more items/vehicles, NPC traders, etc. But who know what will come ^^.

Some minior crashing, glitching, and bugs (though its what to expect from a Early-Alpha Game). More spawn rates of vehicles and the ability to add more storage.

My opinion rating 9/10

In my opinion it's an Interesting game, it has a good gameplay, awesome locations, pretty big map,(and still not finished, probably gonna be about 2x bigger than it is now) realistic weapons, very useful items and good graphics, the only thing that makes a disappointment for me is the lack of mutants, there should be more of them in cities and towns, also they should spawn in buildings too(the amount and locations of spawns will be updated for sure anyways). Summarizing, this game is Amazing as for Early Access and the devs aren't lazy, the game gets better with every update and it has got a lot of potential, so if You are a fan of MMO Survival Horror games, then it's one of the best options for you.

I played for a while and wow, it was a small, fun experience.

My playthrough in short:

-Spawns near city
-Walks around and loots, clothes, clothes everywhere.
-After two houses I am in this room with a skeleton and some loot, I hear footsteps.
-The scared motherf**ker I am, I freeze
-was a friendly, Dutch like me
-we decide to let eachother be, and stay still in the house as we hear gunshots
-when it is quiet again I go out, more looting
-I climb buildings, loot houses, avoid people
-I am starting to be low on food so I decide to check the groceries store
-It's empty, I hear footsteps
-someone behind me voicetalks me "Turn around"
-He is a friendly psycho, running after me with his giant fire axe
-I outrun him, in good shape, well fed. I suddenly died.
-I litterally ran myself to death

10/10 would be ♥♥♥♥♥cared by random people again.

Disclaimer: I got this product in the Humblebundle for 10$, good deal. I played 7daystodie and it had the same fun atmoshpere. I do recommend this game if you like games like DayZ, 7days and other post-apocalyptic survival games.

So I played this game for a bit.. Definitely not like 7 days to die., none of the items in game are interactive.. if you are lucky things are just appear.. hardly no zombies during the day.. Absolutely boring for the most part.. UI is probably one of the worse UIs I have seen on a steam game next to Life is Feudal. As for a game that is not completed yet.. I honestly dont see this game going anywhere. Im just going to let this one grow dust in my library.

I find this game hard to play by myself, I guess it would be more fun if you had a crew of people. Pretty high demand on your pc as well to run high graphics. Might be worth checking out if on sale, otherwise there are better games out there.
