What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As always, projects such as these are a risk for the developers. But after seeing the level of interest and excitement for Dead Sea, we decided to quit our day jobs and pursue the game full time! The funds raised will be used to employ more developers and artists who possess the necessary skills and experience to deliver a quality prduct. Phoenix Studios is currently a small team that is based in Bangkok, Thailand, in which we hope to expand. Our country and government are not keen on video games, and we plan to change that with the help of all our fans and supporters. You have all given us an immense boost in motivation and confidence, and we are dedicated to producing the best possible game!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The Game is still in development, and we need your contributions in order to reach completion. Our goal for this game is to give the players mysterious clues and puzzles, with the freedom to make decisions in a vast open world setting. We have come a very long way and plan to improve current mechanics, as well as implement many new features. We are shooting for a full release by the end of 2015.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

  • Full Survival System
  • 3 main story-lines and the ability to choose paths.
  • Intricate crafting system.
  • More areas and locations on the map.
  • Co-Op Mode
  • Each creature/monster will have its own life cycle and routine.
  • Giant bosses and several more creatures.
  • Save your progression by sleeping on the bed that is located in your camp. You will re-spawn to the nearest camp location when you die.
  • Avoid starvation by hunting different animals. Eventually, you will acquire a skill to farm your own food.
  • Customized Vehicles

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Early Access v. 0.4”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Dead Sea is currently $5.00 until it’s next update that contains a full survival system which is more intricate. It will be priced at $15.00.

We've done testing it to speed run our game to the end it tooks 4 hour to complete in non-linear mission objective gameplay with turn off all survival mode/enemy, But in actual gameplay it would take 6-7 hour long with all survival mode/enemy/weather and everything else you have to face and fight! you can't just speed run and there's no easy way to end it

- There's also side mission/mini-game contain with mystery content





- As we mention before you can save your progression on campfire which we put it on specific zone in each place, Also you can use campfire to fast-foward times at least 1 hour(in game) to plan your strategy

- Sand dunes slope effect on player's movement speed

- Various enemies/monsters/animals from small to big, living in each zone

- We have a very big plan to put a new hot-fixed/short update/side mission/many secret event in each weeks after release this incoming patch! It's all for the best experience to every player playing and discover Dead Sea world



Devlog,6

- Climbing, player can now climbing object, cliff, ladder, rope to the higher ground, add more depth to the level of exploring
