Wrongworld, a rather hilarious looking surreal survival game is coming to Linux

Posted by , | Views: 6,876
I like survival games, but often I find them hard to get into. Wrongworld [Official Site] looks like it will make that rather easy, as it just looks so damn funny.

The developer described it to me as this:
QuoteDon't Starve-style survival game in 3D; less Tim Burton, more kids-TV-show-on-acid.

I can certainly see what they meant!

Features
Survival - With a powerful need to eat, you'll need to find food to stand a chance at surviving Wrongworld. Forage, hunt, farm and cook to keep your hunger at bay.

Combat - As well as being a bit of a technological whiz, our furry little hero also happens to be a student of the martial arts. Pretty handy, too, as he'll encounter a range of rather violent natives here on Wrongworld.

Crafting - Gather resources from across the land, kit yourself out with awesome gear, and build yourself an epic new home. From basics like campfires, simple tools and cooked meals all the way to jet packs, magic potions and maybe even a replacement rocket ship.

Exploration - Explore every nook and cranny of your abstract surroundings to unearth the many secrets hidden around Wrongworld. Huge, randomly-generated worlds means it's different every time you play.

It will release at somepoint in "Q1 2017" and will use Early Access on Steam. It needs help with actually getting onto Steam, so if you like the idea and the style you can vote for it on Greenlight.

This honestly looks like a game I would enjoy and it might even be amusing for kids depending on how it's done. I like what I see so far, so I will be keeping an eye on this one. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Reminds me of ToeJam & Earl in a way.

Brilliant. I'm off to upvote it on Steam Greenlight right now. Multi-player pvp be damned, but I would love to see a online PvE co-op so I can share the laughs real time with a friend or two! Great find Liam!

Might get it for the LOL factor alone!

It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to see people liking the look of Wrongworld, even if the eyes do unsettle people a little bit

Thank you all so much for the support. It really is massively appreciated.

I do hope to have some form of local co-op mode in there before launch - tests have already been carried out on that front - and I'd love to turn that into an online thing at some point. Time is my enemy, but watch this space

Yep, I'm definitely aiming for a GOG release too. I was actually talking to them about it just yesterday

Wrongworld has sneaked its way into the Top 100 on Greenlight this morning, and that's down to articles like this and all the amazing support from fantastic people such as yourselves. Truly, truly grateful. Thank you all so much
