Turkish Translation!

I wasn't expecting to do another patch so soon after the last one, but the Turkish translation has just been finished! Many thanks to Murat Sarı for getting through it all. Enjoy!

(The change list is.. that's the only change in this patch)

The sequel will have bunnies, and stealth!

Hello, time for another update on Survivalist 2. I've got a new demo video for you showcasing the ability to use stealth to take down zombies and bunny rabbits! Also includes a bunch of stuff I haven't shown before like the new bow and arrows, chopping down trees and building campfires for cooking, and demonstrates how to use the wind direction to your advantage when hunting. Check it out here!

Here's some screenshots too:





I've also released another small patch for Survivalist 1 to fix a few bugs that people reported recently. Here's the changelist:
  • Don't allow alcoholic drinks to increase the thirst of NPCs that are not simulating survival factors (fix for Bat Jacobs dying as soon as he joined your community due to being given too much wine)
  • Traders delete items the player sold them when restocking so they can't just get full up and not restock anymore
  • Don't show the double click to enter building hint if you've done it already
As always, if you want to be informed whenever I post news about the sequel, just email me and ask to be put on my mailing list.

“I have to say I love this game. It’s a robust game filled with moral and physical obstacles while giving a grand look on the narrative of humanity and the choices we make.”
5/5 – The Indie Mine

“Survivalist has been compared, the developer admits, to State of Decay (published by Microsoft Studios and built on CryEngine 3), but I actually found Survivalist far more engaging and playable from the outset.”
4.5/5 – Indie Game Reviewer

“Survivalist is one of the most impressive XBLIGs ever produced....Survivalist is an intense experience, one of the most content-packed, feature-rich games on the indie channel. It is not to be missed.”
