About This Game

HeatWave is a sandbox survival strategy game set in 2080 in Alaska affected by climate change.

Global warming has led humanity to the brink of collapse, caused unprecedented migration and stir up internal conflicts. Therefore, the US government has decided to abandon the cut off territories in Alaska and focus on saving the mainland.
The Russian government supported by China decides to take advantage of the US situation. To expand into more hospitable places to live, they launch an invasion of Alaska, which was once a Russian colony.
As a result of oppression and hostile colonization, the people of Alaska form Guerrilla groups to repel the invaders.
The underground Americans are the underdogs in a fight for their land and freedom.

Form your team and set internal laws and adapt rules to the changing environment.
Set up base deep in the forests of Alaska, build new structures to make your people self-reliant.

Use and upgrade your bushcraft skills.
Survive in the wilderness with limited resources.
Help your people meet basic survival needs. Set up camps, obtain energy resources, provide shelter against the cold and rain. Hunt for food, collect wild plants or plunder local communities to prevent starvation.
