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:
  • 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.

VoIP:
In-game VoIP with distance attenuation

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

Crafting:
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.

Permadeath
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

If you are looking for a zombie/survival game to buy, Miscreated is definitely worth a look. With more updates in this game in the past year than DayZ has had in the past 5, I believe that this game has more potential to become something.

DayZ without the terrible devs. This game is fantastic. Graphics are great, good community, looting is fun. The buildings are way more indepth than DayZ. I highly recommend getting this game if you're getting tired of DayZ. It's relatively early in development and it's already further along than DayZ.

I got this game today and I can honestly say it is the best survival I have played. Ever. I have had no KOS, people willing to trade guns and ammo for food and water and people who just want to chat. Now I know there is and always will be KOS but I hope this game stays the way it is and everyone stays as friendly as they are now. People even give you lifts without having an ambush set up. Beautiful game as well, The graphics are brilliant on a not so brilliant computer. The amount of effort they put in this game is seen through beautiful scenery and the amount of enterable buildings. The ammo balances out with the amount of zombies(?) in the game and I can't wait for my friends to get this so we can play together.

so i started out a fresh spawn like every other pleb.

i found a ton of gear, got pretty lucky, had a shotgun, two pistols with ammo, a sniper, hatchet, bunch of medical supplies. second largest backpack, combat gear. a sweeeet eyepatch.

i found a quad, looked all over for parts, finally found everything i needed except two tires..

another fresh spawn joined the game right behind where i was, he asked for a ride, graciously i gave him one.

we tooled around for a bit looking for two front tires, i found one and we were able to go much faster.

we arrived in a town called sultan, he said he found a .357 magnum, i already gave him a gun, just without ammo.. at this point we had been traveling together for about an hour, so i decided to trust him... i gave him some .357 ammo i had on me.

we continued to search through sultan, i found an ultra rare collectable item.. a "Garden Gnome". i was so excited, so happy. felt like the sad desolate world that makes up miscreated was finally started to pull itself back together, all was well.

we met back at the church where i parked the quad, i took the battery out so nobody could steal it, and he was waiting by it. i told him of my spectacular find, the ultra rare, ultra suave "Garden Gnome".

he asked to see it, so i showed him. then quickly picked it back up. he asked if it stands up, i said i dont know, so i dropped it once more, as soon as it dropped, he pulled out a gun, tensions rose, he aimed.. took 3 shots, and down i went, like a tree without a stump.. like a giraffe that lost its balance..

i was hurt, and dying. betrayed by my own apprentice, betrayed by a filthy disgraceful, despicable Gnome-stealer.

i laid there as he looted my bleeding body, took my gnome first, then my guns and ammo, stripped me of my glorious eyepatch, now blood-stained. he took my backpack and car battery, put it in the quad, looked back one last time in the grief and horror of his actions, then looked down at the gnome with one tear in his eye..

he wiped that tear, stuffed the gnome back in his new blood-stained backpack and pulled away on my old quad.


I will find that Garden Gnome again, if its the last thing i do. Even if i have to pry it from my old friends cold, dead hands. Betrayal will fuel my search, revenge will find my Gnome.

It is said the deepest circle of hell is reserved for mutineers, and Gnome betrayers.

Logged into a server
Was near a bridge, decided to start crossing it
Come across three guys, wave at them, they wave back
Thought they were friendly and walked past
Was walking in the opposite direction when I suddenly got shot from behind
All three of them were chasing me with hatchets and axes
They followed me through the nearest town for about 5 minutes
I decided I'd try lose them by jumping off a bridge into a river, they didn't stop
ALT+F4'd after 20 minutes of chasing, seems like they had time well spent.

10/10 would be chased again

So I've been thinking of buying DayZ or H1Z1 for quite sometime, but I just wasn't too impressed by their game engines and some of the game mechanics. Recently found out about Miscreated and started watching video and game play. Decided to go for it.

I like ARK (xbox one player), but it's systems are too convoluted for me to just pick up and play in short bursts.

Miscreated seems to a very underrated game. I do enjoy it much more than Ark.

The game engine is fantastic and the graphics are top notch (GTX970+i7 6700k stock clocks = ~50fps max everything).

Looking at the update history shows that it gets regular updates.

Inventory seems easy to manage. Wish the items auto stacked though.
Crafting system is easy to get into with a low learning curve.
Have not tried base building yet.
Gun play seems to be on point. I do not notice lag during shoot outs.
Melee combat could use some work.
Not many gun options or gun customization yet. Enough to enjoy the game though (handguns, rifles, explosives, bolt action, etc are in the game).

Weather system is amazing. Thunderstorms at night is something that really draws you in.

Not much KOS going on so that's a plus.

32 player count. Devs say this will expand as they open up more of the map.

I hope they get more support from the community. $20 is a fair price for the content that is available in early access.

I play on one of the official servers and it's usually in the 20-30 player count range.

Graphics and art direction are WAY better than the stuff I've seen with DayZ and H1Z1.

I honestly don't know why people dislike this game. Better than Dayz and H1Z1 and ppl are friendly and less kos cancer. Better graphics than real life. Met many friends along the way, some stayed some left, some I had to kill becuz they were dying. More realistic than real life.

I've been playing this game for a while now. I have to say that it is the best survival game out there.
It is still in alpha so of course it contains some bugs but at least for me there has been almost none of them. If you complain how the game lags and it wont run great yadda yadda.. it is because of your computer. It is a beautiful game and it doesn't run on every potato out there. I bought this game about a year ago... for the first time tho.. i refunded it just for the simple reason: my pc didn't run it as good as i thought it to do.. I upgraded my GPU from 660 to 970 (2gb to 4gb) and i wanted to give it another shot. And im glad i did. The game is growing all the time and devs are into it. Well worth its money. I recommend!

The game is in early access so I expected there to be bad optimiziation, and expect to be kicked randomly from servers, there's also bad zombie AI, Other than that, the game is fun, it plays like dayz and h1z1, so you start your first 30 minutes running around looting, my only problem is it got boring fast, after getting a car, and fully decked out with weapons and supplies there wasn't much left to do. The map size is decent, and most of the time other players won't kill on sight, hopefully the devs keep updating this game and expanding the map.

GIVE THIS GAME A CHANCE.


Went in with very low expectations and I can say this game has delivered way more than I imagined. WELL worth the 20$ early access price. The dev team has come an extremely long way from early reviews and this game is a blasty blast. In comparison with DayZ, the bugs I've encontered have been few and far between. GREAT atmosphere and lighting. The weather effects may be the best I've experienced in any game. Fun enemies and PvP. Very respectable loot system. Cool base buiilding and crafting elements. Gun play is fun, and challenging. The enviroments are top notch, I really can't say enough about the wonderful atmosphere this game has. The citys are overgrown and have a lived-in feeling adding to the emersion, in my opinion this game is much more pleasing to look at than dayZ. In many ways this game feels so much further along in the development cycle than dayZ (which i compare it t often because its the only ther survival game I have massive time invested in). There are already cars and predators, which, at the time of this review are either not in dayZ, or are so buggy and complicated to get running they're not worth messing with.

The (minor) Cons
-Friends with lower end PC's have some trouble running the game, but its possible
- At this point the guns, in my opinion, do not sound very good. But from what I've read some are place holders to be fixed in the future. And the gun shots arent heard from more than 200m or so. (At least for me and I use TB's)
-Cars can be ninjas, that you cant hear until there right between your butt cheeks
-The server joining menu REALLY needs to be overhauled and more intuitive to make it easier to join friends
-Cant prone
-Items sometime get eaten by the earth if dropped in houses or bushes
- The UI needs a little work, but is respectable, and fairly easy to navigate

Bottom line, this game is a blast, and only getting better. Obviously this game is in early access, so the minor bugs I have foudn will be fixed. If youre looking for a survival game thats fun and beautiful, this is it.
