The Other 99 looks like a pretty good entry to the single-player action & survival section, and it's releasing into Early Access with Linux support soon.

I generally much prefer the single-player survival games (apart from Don't Starve), as they are able to focus on a much nicer user experience.

With a lot of survival games now available on Linux, it will have to be pretty good to stand out from the crowd. The teaser trailer certainly has me intrigued.

About the game
The Other 99 is a deadly first-person action-survival game. Ripped from your ordinary life you awaken on a desolate, windswept Hebridian island with nothing but a single note that reads, “The only way off the island is through the other 99”.

The Other 99
will stretch your humanity to breaking point as you fight to gather food, water and weapons on an island where you have nothing, where you are nothing.

It us up to you to make yourself into something. Will you brutally murder all those who stand in your way? Or will you move silently through the forests, eliminating anyone that crosses your path? Just remember each person is unique and has their own story to tell and their own pieces of the jigsaw that makes up The Other 99.

Even if you manage to leave the island, will you ever be the same person?

Not a lot to see or read at the moment but this seems promising! Yay for first person and stealth.

ANOTHER first person action survival game on steam in early access... didn't see that coming. Other than The Long Dark I don't think I've seen another game in this genre actually leave early access.

The Long Dark is still in early access ;).

I agree with you about the big amount of survival/crafting games, but it seems to me that The Other 99 may be a bit less focussed on survival (chopping wood, making fire, hunting, building…)… That’s just a feeling though. Very little info about the game so far. I hope it will be more focussed on the story and interaction with the other people.
