Publisher Excalibur and developer Odin Game Studio have announced a new survival game in development titled Better Late Than Dead. Upon beginning the game players awake on an island without any memories except for a child’s photograph in their pocket. Players must try to survive by searching for resources, crafting items, seeking shelter, fending off wild animals, and satisfying thirst and hunger needs all the while trying to escape and the island and solve the mystery.

The sandbox nature of the island will be explorable either via single-player or up to four players in a multiplayer mode. Odin Game Studio Co-Founder Alexandre Kikuchi described the game, “We’ve developed an adventure game based on survival elements that challenges the player with common decisions, where men and animals are part of one plot, but different destinies await. Better Late than Dead brings a new challenge for old and new survivors!” 

The game’s features include:

  • Uncover a story that unfolds with new updates
  • Craft items using a combination of objects and methods like cutting and tying
  • Online Multiplayer mode
  • Lose blood, break bones, be poisoned and stave off hunger and thirst
  • Varying weather conditions that affect gameplay
  • Procedurally generated items that the player must find in order to leave the island
  • Dangerous animals including wolves, snakes and sharks
  • Permadeath – Will you be able to escape the island or will you succumb to its menace?

Better Late Than Dead will be available through Steam Early Access on July 9 for PC at launch and Mac at a later stage in development. The early access game will retail for $14.99.
