Survival Games

Survival games are a genre that has recently become very popular. Right now one can say that almost every major title has some survival elements. The games of this type force the player to make sure his character doesn’t die despite harsh conditions. Usually, the character begins the adventure with bare hands. He can only count on the items he finds or creates.

Survival games have become fashionable since the launch of Minecraft, which has become a YouTube video game hit. At the height of the popularity of this game, there was no gamer who would not hear about it. Many game titles are still being inspired by Minecraft mechanics.

At the core of the survival game mechanics, there is always a crafting system. By collecting items and combining them in the right way, the players create increasingly advanced tools. For example, having a branch and combining it with stone, you get a simple stone ax that will allow you to efficiently gather more timber. Another important aspect of this type of games is taking care of the physiological needs of your character. The task is to provide water, food, and shelter. To do this you have to hunt for animals or grow plants.

Yet another important element that underlies this genre of games is the world. Such games are usually played in vast open worlds that can be also to some extent changed by the player. During the evolution of the genre, it has become a standard that such worlds are generated procedurally. This means that each survival game will be played in a different environment.
