It's pretty staggering just how advanced Vintage Story is becoming as a survival game. It's still relatively unknown but in my eyes it already rivals many popular games and another huge upgrade is out now. Vintage Story is not available on Steam, which is probably one of the biggest reasons it's not so well known. The developer isn't ruling it out but they want to hang onto that 30% that Valve would take.
Version 1.17.0 is out now named the "Stable De-Jank and Game Juice Update" and it's honestly massive.

Some of the big new features include:
- Lightning strikes and Desert storms.
- 200+ new blocks.
- A huge water physics update.
- 300 types of shields.
- More and prettier flora.
- New and improved fauna.
- Improved Creature AI.
- Extensive updates to the visuals in many places.
- Massive performance tuning.
And the list goes on for quite a while, the changelog like most updates for Vintage Story is rather long. Perhaps mostly importantly though, you can now pet the animals. Okay, it's not the most exciting feature around but it's rather sweet.
This is the survival game for those of you who love depth and difficulty, with a huge varied world to explore.
