Survived By download PC
Survived By download is an independent free-to-play MMORPG, strongly inspired by classic roguelike titles. Responsible for it are Human Head Studios (creators of classic productions such as Rune and Prey from 2006) and Digital Extremes (producer and publisher, known for cooperative shooter Warframe, Dark Sector and the first Homefront). The title is for PC only.
Survived By download sends players into a fantasy world that has been infected by an unspecified evil. It threatens the World Tree and all its inhabitants. In order to stop them, a group of daredevils must wander through the dangerous forests and dungeons and face the dangerous creatures (including beasts, spirits and elements) that reside in them.
In Survived By download up to 100 people can fight shoulder to shoulder at the same time, sharing experience and loot. At first they choose one of several character classes (among others Alchemist, Harbinger, Infiltrator, Sentinel, Geomancer and Druid). Each of them uses a distance weapon. The key to effective elimination of enemies is three things. First of all, the use of an extensive crafting system, which allows you to create an increasingly powerful weapon and equipment. Secondly, choosing the right strategy for the chosen character class and proper use of magic and special skills acquired during promotions to the next levels of experience. Thirdly and finally, constant movement and efficient avoidance of enemies and the missiles they shoot.
Unlike most roguelike titles, the death of the protagonist does not definitively end the game. In Survived By download there is an interesting system, somewhat reminiscent of the one known from Rogue Legacy. In the event of a disaster, it is possible to take control of the previous hero's heir. Most of the items previously collected are lost in this process, but some of the experience is retained, which makes it easier to start a new game.
Graphics in Survived By download was made in pixel-art style. Two-dimensional levels and characters can bring to mind some of the classic versions of The Legend of Zelda series.
Although there are micro-payments in Survived By download, it is the intention of the creators of their system to work in the least invasive way. All items available for real cash can also be purchased for the money gained while playing, although of course it will take a lot more time.
