I never thought I’d willingly play a horror game, let alone review one. They normally aren’t for me. I’m a wimp, and I can’t stand getting spooked. Yet every moment that I’m not playing Phasmophobia, I want to be. I’ll tremble, and scream and I’ll need to change my shirt after every game thanks to anxiety sweat, but I still come back for more.
The Survivalists is an adventure survival game set in the same universe as the Escapist games. After becoming stranded on a set of mysterious isles, you must build, craft, and survive while looking for a means of escape.
Drake Hollow is a survival game, but its focus isn’t you versus the elements. It’s on caring for cute little plant creatures called Drakes, and they need your help to survive. If the task seems daunting alone, you can team up with up to three friends to care for the creatures.
I reviewed the base game, Ark Survival Evolved sometime ago. I’m bringing this up because it is very important for the context of this review. I’m not happy with my original Ark review and score. It happens, I’m not perfect and hindsight is 2020. Ark is one of my favorite games, I have numerous hours in it and I constantly go back to it. Yet I scored it low.
