What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Spirit Animal Survival is a massive Open World Multiplayer with a unique story.
It has a very complex game mechanic where the player is able not only to build and craft but also has the opportunity to morph into different animal forms during the game play and dangerous monster encounters. You are surrounded by a living and breathing world faced with many challenges ahead be it on the main land, ocean or one of the many instances such as dungeons and caves and parallel worlds. All this needs balancing and player input to release and expand as a finished product. Early Access ensures that we can partner up with you all enabling us to help make this game an amazing experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate that Spirit Animal Survival will take approximately one year to complete allowing a full release on Steam.”

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

“The full version planned will differ in comparison to the Early Access version is as follows:
(Most of the content will only differ in quantity as it is already implemented)

  • 11 Islands in total with 11 Boss Instances (Early Access has 5 Islands and 4 Instances)
  • Additional Animals and Creatures (Early Access features approximately 100 already)
  • Extensive Crafting and Building Pieces (Early Access has over 200 craftables)
  • Defense and Offense Weapons such as Ballista, Trebuchet, etc.
  • Additional Mounts
  • Additional Tamed Pets
  • Gardening and Harvesting Mechanic
  • Additional Character Clothes sets and Armor Tiers

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Spirit Animal Survival Early Access version features a very stable COOP Multiplayer Open World environment, with almost all features of the full version implemented.We will try to implement the PVP mode with an update shortly after Early Access launch.
However a game this size needs balancing and player input to help form the potential and completion of this game.
Currently included are the following features:
  • 5 different environments totaling approximately 36 square kilometers
  • 100 different Animal and Creature Types
  • Over 200 Craft and Building Items
  • Taming/Mating of specific Animals
  • Morphing into Spirit Animals
  • Extensive Character Creation system for Male and Female
  • 6 Tiers of starting clothes sets
  • Different Mountable Animals and Boats
  • 4 Boss Instances
  • Volumetric Weather System with Day and Night cycles

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

“Yes, the game will be lower priced through Early Access, relative to its final full-version retail price.”

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

“We at True Illusion Software, will make use of the Forums on our site as well as the Steam Hub/Group and our Discord Channel to maintain consistent interaction with our Player Community.
We will be very active with the comments and suggestions our players provide us with.”

Our large and vast open world environment with 5 Islands without loading screens may leave you mesmerized and feeling in awe. Dive underwater and explore the vast ecosystem, always taking caution, of course, you never know what's lurking in the depths of the ocean.

The Story of Spirit Animal Survival

At the beginning of existence,
our Creator made it such that Humans and Animals had a mutual understanding of one another allowing them to communicate together
which in turn forged a bond of peace and harmony.

It was not until Humans became overrun with greed and an insatiable need for power that the Humans began the gratuitous killing of animals beyond what they needed for food and survival. Angered by the Humans actions, the Creator separated the two populations, assigning them their own respective villages and different languages. As a punishment for their ignorance, the Humans and Animals were then completely segregated and the ability to communicate was lost.

Although the balance between the Humans and Animals was in peril, the Creator passed a piece of his primal essence to a few select kind and honest Humans which allowed them to still understand the animals and to yield the power of the 11 Spirit Animals by taking on their animal forms.

As the Creator was bestowing the gift of the Spirit Animal to the few select Humans, elsewhere a dark and malevolent energy manifested. The Dark Lord saw this schism between Animal and Man as an opportunity to overrule the World with His darkness and evil. To accomplish his evil goals, the Dark Lord gathered the most corrupt of the Humans and promised them power of their own to rule the World if they were to supply Him with both Animal and Human sacrifices to feed this insatiable hunger for fear and pain of all living creatures.

Now, the time has come for those few gifted Humans who bear the Spirit Animal to defeat the evil forces that prevail and bring light to the darkness once and for all. Your quest begins with your Tribe being attacked by the forces of evil, when many parts of the World are set afire, people are being captured and offered for sacrifice, causing much pain and suffering. As the sole survivor, unsure of why you were spared during the torment and massacre, your mission is to find your people, free them, and fortify your Tribe’s village. The only way to defeat the Dark Lord is to summon the collective power of the 11 Spirit Animals, using their gifts and abilities to kill the Soldiers of Darkness and their armies of destruction.
