Hurtworld is a brand new open-world survival game

Hurtworld is a new Australian game, released on December 4th, 2015 on Steam for Early Access. It is a brand new open world survival game in which you start off in the middle of a deserted wasteland with nothing on you except for a pair on underwear. You’re almost immediately hungry and cold so your first goal is to find a way to get a fire going and if you’re lucky, roast some beef on the fire for nourishment.

Basic needs first

Your first and foremost goal is to start a campfire and build some basic tools in order to survive. Thankfully the game developers have been kind enough to scatter around plenty of resources with a relatively fast respawn rate for the beginner. You’ll need to gather the basic sticks and stones in order to build a stone axe which you can then use to chop some wood and kill your first rabbit.

Knowing all of the controls beforehand is a great way to reduce the time it takes to familiarize yourself with the gameplay and concentrate more on gathering resources from the start. It shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to build yourself a basic stone axe and get a campfire going.

Gathering food and leather

You will need a crafting table for that.

Once you have your bow and arrows, it’s time to go hunting! The rabbits like to stand at one spot for a lot of the time so it makes shooting them that much easier. You can take them down with a single shot and when they die, they leave a hilarious nicely sealed wooden box behind containing some meat and a piece of leather.

Furthermore, if you look closely, you’ll notice a dick drawn on the side of the box. I have no idea what the developers are trying to say with it. A dick box, really?

Getting civilized

Once you have looted enough leather from all those poor rabbits, it’s time to craft some clothes so you wouldn’t run around butt naked in the desert like a neanderthal. Using your crafting table, you’ll find it pretty easy to craft your most basic shirt and pants very soon. To equip them, simply drag the item into the correct slot in your inventory. To be honest, it really resembles a Minecraft inventory screen and the hotbar at the bottom of the screen is very similar also.

Now you’re ready to explore

I wonder what’s inside?

The game will really start to take off once you claim a piece of land for yourself and build a house, a cool looking car and a bunch of different weapons. Unfortunately I haven’t yet gotten that far, but from what I have heard, it looks very promising and could be compared with the Fallout series even though the graphics are very cartoon like and not realistic at all. But then again, that wasn’t the intention in the first place so it’s cool.

According to the game developers they have made it so there’s always a server available in which you can have a really fun multiplayer experience. There’s also the chance of hosting your own Hurtworld server and you can compare Hurtworld server hosting packages here.

Meet muchoskill, the Runescape avatar who only has one life

Cursed by the gods

Nobody knows for sure which god is responsible, but people all over the world are starting to speculate that it might have been an agreement of all the gods with the exception of Guthix (being dead and all…) , to curse certain newborn avatars in Gielinor so that they only have a single life. When you die- that’s it. Good night, sayonara etc.

 

Meet muchoskill

MuchoSkill from Runescape Hardcore Ironman Challenge
Muchoskill is just one of many who have been cursed in such a way. There are so many poor souls currently inhabiting the world that the supreme ruler Jagex has been forced to create separate highscore tables for these people. Every day muchoskill wakes up and the first thought that runs through his thick Rastafarian head is “will I survive this day or will I die and be forgotten?

 

Every day he sees more and more strangers who share his fate get killed in the most horrific ways one can imagine and if you think THAT should be enough to break the average man, an eerie voice on top of it all will always break the silence and announce the death of another one.

 

The only thing left for muchoskill is to continue his progress towards enlightenment by gaining experience in the many skills and activities this world has to offer in the hopes to perhaps one day see the mind of God using all of his knowledge and to rival the Gods themselves by claiming immortality and maybe, just maybe even becoming a God himself.
