I first saw the game in Game Jolt site which offers a large community of indie games for players around the world. The Wild Eight is an open-world survival game with an interesting storyline. An early alpha version was released through Game Jolt on May 23, 2016 and now you can order the full version online.
The game tells the story of eight people whose everyday lives are changed after a plane crash. They now find themselves stranded in the middle of nowhere, deep in the forests of Alaska. While the survivors await rescue, their lives are threatened by a number of mysterious entities, unseen creatures and objects that definitely don’t belong in this world. And the deeper you go, the harder it gets to survive. Players will have to develop survival skills such as shelter building, and hunting in order to survive in this vast land.
In this game, there is no room for mistakes: if you went hunting but forgot to cut some wood for the fire before nightfall, you’re dead. If you didn’t have time to cook your meat, you might have to eat it raw — and if you don’t have medicine, you can die from food poisoning.
You can play The Wild Eight on your own, but the game fully opens up in co-op mode. Other players are your only backup — either by sharing resources or helping you out.
