The super sweet survival and base-builder 'MewnBase' is now on Steam

Posted by , | Views: 4,461

For those who prefer their survival games to be single-player and a little sweeter, MewnBase is now on Steam.

Currently, the developer says it's mostly a spare-time gig and so updates aren't always that frequent. It's in Early Access and so it's not finished, with an end-date projected to be by the end of 2019. Hopefully with the Steam release, it will give the developer some additional sales and exposure to progress forwards.

Feature highlight:

  • Technology Upgrades - Find strange, yet oddly familiar artifacts scattered around the planet. Research them to unlock shiny new crafting recipes and tech upgrades.
  • Manage Your Base's Resources - Build air cleaners to keep you breathing. All those modules plugged into a single outlet probably won't cut it. So you'll need more solar panels to keep things humming along. Keep a supply of clean water on hand to keep your plants hydrated. 
  • Day/Night Cycles and Weather Hazards - It's hard to find your way in the dark. So fuel up your generators and make sure your base’s batteries are topped off before night falls. Then batten down the hatches during thunderstorms and gusty sandstorms.
  • Vehicles - Walking from point A to B is for the theoretical space-birds. If there were any. Construct vehicles to traverse long distances in style. 
  • Community Localization - MewnBase comes with several community-provided translations for menus and game

Over the course of development, they're planning to add in more vehicles, creatures that are both friendly and hostile, more biomes to explore and quite a lot more.

So now you can find it on both and Steam.

This looks interesting but again, sadly only singleplayer. Do you know if they have plans for multiplayer?
i feel like survival games need multiplayer, unless they have really good story like Subnautica or Don't Starve

I have to disagree. Survival games need neither story nor multiplayer, if they are done right. Sadly the only survival game I consider done right is Unreal World...

Think I already got this from on a discount.
Nice to see it is still being developed.

This game is fun, but there is not much to do yet : only one mission with one objective, no creeps or enemies, limited tech tree that can be unlocked in 2 or 3 hours..
BTW this game suits perfectly for kids.
