What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our goal is to make sure we go into Early Access with the core mechanics, premise, and tone, all fully in place. Then, working alongside the community, help shape the game as we continue to expand all of our gameplay systems and the game world itself. Smalland: Survive the Wilds aims to be a big game in terms of depth and map size, and will continue to grow throughout Early Access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We want to get everything we envisioned for Smalland: Survive the Wilds into the game. We also want to ensure that Smalland: Survive the Wilds is a game the community enjoys. To achieve both these things we believe this will take between six months and a year depending, on the user feedback.”

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

“Since launching in Early Access at the end of March 2023 we have delivered multiple QoL improvements and already added two major content updates - Giant's Fall and Forbidden Monuments. These included new map areas, new creatures, new weapons, new systems and additional story quests. We intend to deliver several more systems improvements, gameplay areas and extra content before the game reaches 1.0.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“A fully playable solo or co-op game with creatures, mounts, collectable armour sets, and NPCs set within the towering world of Smalland: Survive the Wilds.”

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

“Yes, we are aiming for a reduced Early Access price for those who support the game while we add additional content during the Early Access period.”

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

“We are very active on the Steam forums but even more so on the dedicated Smalland Discord. Player feedback is more than welcome and has been greatly valued as we continue to shape Smalland: Survive the Wilds. We are currently listening to the community and feeding back with progress as much as possible. We will also be providing focus tests, and closed beta tests to gather as much feedback as possible to make sure we are reaching our own expectations as well as the community’s.”

About This Game

"Before the time of the giants, we lived freely under the Sun and Moon. Centuries have passed, but those stories of the surface world have been passed down through the generations. Now the giants are gone, and you, Vanguard, must venture out into the wilds once more, on an urgent mission. Be brave, and do not falter…"

Explore the vast “Land of the Small"

Traverse lake sized puddles, scale skyscraper sized trees, scramble through cavernous cracks in roads, as you experience a huge open world from a new perspective. Explore dense forests, hazardous swamps and strange ruins left over from the time before. Uncover lore and knowledge from hidden NPCs scattered throughout the world and learn to survive in this vast wilderness.

Tame and ride creatures

Uncover recipes that will let you tame and ride an array of critters. Leap huge distances on the back of a Grasshopper, zoom around on a Damselfly, scurry from place-to-place on a Spider. This world and its inhabitants are yours to conquer.

Survive together

Play alongside friends with support for up to 10 players in multiplayer. Explore together, fight together, build together and survive the wilds as a team.

Build encampments on the ground or amongst the trees

Scavenge or refine resources to build your encampment with multiple material tiers, from leaves and twigs to sturdy stone. Pick your favourite spot in the world and build, or scale vast trees and claim your own settlement at the top.

Craft powerful armour sets

Collect powerful armours that provide you with resistances and abilities and mix them up to personalise your appearance. Glide through the skies in winged armour, swing from tree to tree with the grappling hook and many more.

Survive the Wilds

Most of the creatures you encounter will see you as lower on the food chain – Ants, Cockroaches, Beetles, Wasps, and Spiders all view you as a potential meal. Weather conditions and seasons are in constant flux so if you want to survive for another day, preparation is key.
