What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game has been in development since December 2015 and we feel that now is the right time to involve a broader audience to help us shape the game. Your support and feedback will give us the possibility to make the game even better and bigger.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Everything depends on how well the game is received and what the players are saying. Also due to the complexity of development we cannot promise a specific timeline, but we currently estimate one year of development time until the full release.”

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

“The full version will have significantly more content and features. Updates will be introduced throughout the Early Access period that will not only fix issues and improve optimization, but also introduce all new gameplay mechanics, places to explore, quests, items, challenges and much more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is still under development, but already in a very playable state and contains lots of game mechanics (crafting, hideout building, complex conversation system, skills, bin looting etc.). You can also already play with your friends or with other players online in co-op for up to 4 players.”

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

“The general idea is to gradually raise the price as the game grows with features and content, until the full release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Regular, and transparent communication with our Early Access players is absolutely crucial for us. We will try to listen to all suggestions of the community and polish gameplay based off of the feedback from forums, social networks, the web, etc.”

About This Game

Welcome to Praslav, a cold Central European city that grows even colder with the coming winter. Praslav is recovering from the political turmoil that followed the end of the Cold War and the fall of the Communist regime, which held the country in its iron grip for decades.

While most people eagerly awaited the coming of democracy and capitalism, some were unable to adapt to the new socio-economic climate. Soon they found themselves on the streets with nowhere to go.

You are one of those people.


Keep an eye on your needs and other variables, which interact in realistic ways - staying warm, dry, and well-fed are not your only concerns. Poor hygiene and dirty clothes make you smellier, low temperature increases the risk of falling ill, and whatever piece of food comes in must also come out at some point.


How far are you willing to go to survive? Steal, burgle, and consort with criminals of all sorts. If necessary, take what you need by force. However, you are not an action hero. Consider your actions carefully, for the consequences are often severe, and benefits rarely outweigh the risks. Most importantly, keep your wits about you. Even if you are not willing to hurt people for personal gain, others are.


Spend the last few days of autumn wisely – gather supplies, equipment, and materials to help you survive the most difficult of seasons. Weather is unpredictable, but there is one certainty - every day is colder than the last. With a lot of preparation and a bit of luck, you might even see the spring again.


Unlike other survival games, Hobo: Tough Life leans heavily on its story content. Experience dozens of storylines inspired by real-life events and people. Solve quests, meet unique NPCs, gain their trust, make allies and enemies, join various factions, and find your place in the streets of Praslav.


Maybe there is no warm apartment waiting for you at the end of the day, but you do not have to keep sleeping on park benches either. Find a suitable place and get to work. Construct walls and roofs to shield you from the elements. Gather discarded furniture and curios to furnish your hideout and make it truly your own.


Is surviving on your own too difficult? Get the gang together. The game supports online co-op multiplayer for up to 4 players. Play alone, together with your friends, or even with total strangers. Team up, collect resources, build a shanty town, survive the winter.


For over a decade, no one has been able to bring the many factions of the homeless together. The throne of the Homeless King has been sitting empty for far too long. Who will earn enough respect and prove themselves worthy of uniting the homeless? Will you rise to the occasion?
