I must admit I like the look of The Culling! While I like the idea of survival games, they often don't click for me, but a battle royale game I could definitely get into.

It looks like it has the features in survival games I want, but far more action. I can't wait to try it out and tell you what I think.

The developers have stated that the next update scheduled for April 27th will feature SteamOS support!

It's in Early Access, so it will have issues I'm sure.

About the game
As a contestant in the deadly game of The Culling, you must explore, scavenge items, craft weapons, and build traps that will enable you to slay your fellow contestants and emerge victorious before the end of the round. Only with cunning, skill, and a little luck will you be able to prevail and survive the match.

Unlike add-on modes in open-world survival games, The Culling redefines the battle royale genre by providing a tightly focused stand-alone experience that delivers incredible thrills and endless story-worthy moments. Article taken from

Arrows/daggers blowing barrels up? Makes me cringe so bad it dissuades me from even considering it

Yes, because in real life all you need to survive 50 spear stabs is a bandage made from two sticks being rubbed together. Don't want video games getting all unrealistic on us, do we?

Let's just say I have different tolerance levels for different distortions of reality. And physics tolerance in a game like this turns out to be low. This is not a magic ARPG.
