The Game Review

In Dig or Die, the story starts off short and sweet – the player works for a company known as Craft & Co, a firm known for creating automated defenses and machines to make everyday life easier and simpler. The main character works for them as a sales representative and during a routine fly-over, their ship crashes and they remain the only survivor on a hostile planet. By acquiring resources and the tools at their disposal, the player is expected to build to survive.

The general gameplay loop for the game comes in two waves: the first is during the daytime, where the player is expected to go out and dig for some resources. These resources will be needed to craft new items, tools, and machinations to keep the player alive each and every night. On top of this, the player is also going to build up a house and some general defenses to keep themselves safe. Just before it starts to get dark, however, then is the time to start making some tools and automated machines to keep the player safe throughout the night. Without them, it might make surviving the next night quite a difficult situation.

The second wave comes in the form of the night, where its safest to hunker down inside the base and do whatever the player can to keep themselves alive until the next morning. As soon as night time hits, that’s when the hostiles come running towards the player and that’s where things start to get hairy. Once the hostiles are nearby, any automated machines or turrets will attack and fire against anything that they consider hostile. Providing the player has put up enough defenses, they should be able to survive until the morning; if not, though, the run ends and the player will have to start again.

Easily the biggest comparison for this game would be a mixture of Minecraft, Terraria, and Factorio. It uses the base-building of Minecraft and Terraria, the 2D nature of Terraria, and makes great use of the automation inspiration from Factorio. All of these games are a clear inspiration for Dig and Die and have made for an enjoyable experience for fans of all the three of these games.

Anyone that’s looking for a variation on crafting, tower defense, platform jumping, and science fiction open-world survival will become immediately fond of Dig or Die. There’s a lot of little extra things for players to do, without having to worry about the difficulty getting into the way at any point and it makes for a fun experience for both casual and hardcore players.
