Summary

Away The Survival Series is a game that plays like a nature documentary. As you do things and follow the story a narrator will go all David Attenborough on yo ass and tell you what is going on. It sounds a bit stupid but honestly, I think the devs have struck on a really unique and comfortable setting. The game is going for something with the way it got me learning about the Sugar Glider and its habits, its abilities and to be honest, had me respecting the little furball. The setting for all this is Saviour Island and it’s a truly beautiful place, flowing tree lines, beautiful flowers, and a whole host of creatures to bot hunt and run away from. I loved so much about the game so it pains me to then follow up with the many issues I had actually playing Away. The main things you do are hunt and fly, both are really bad to do. Hunting you generally need to lock on and jump them or chase them down, the camera cannot handle this and it all goes like a merry-go-round. Flying is a pain as it’s hard to judge distance and control whilst airborne. It’s frustrating more because it hinders your enjoyment and like I say I think they have a really good idea here. You can get something from the game but it won’t be as strong as if the game was a bit tighter. Overall Away The Survival Series is a brilliant idea that is never fully realized.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
