Best Upcoming Base Building and Survival Indie Games –  Indie Game News April 2018


Hello Indie Game Lovers, Nerds and Nerdettes
my name is Feniks and this is the Indie Game News. Today we look at Base-Building and Survival
genre. Don’t forget to check video description
for additional information Factorio version 0.16 is out in a stable branch
and game is heading full steam ahead towards version 1.0 with that in mind developers are
looking at increasing the price of to $30 or your regional equivalent from 16th of April. Developers are quite strong on their no sale
policy so the only way to get this game cheap is to buy it now. I personally could not recommend this game
enough and there is good reason why factorio sits at astonishing 98% review score out of
over 25 000 reviews submitted. Anyway version 0.16 brings you new Artillery
with late game research unlocking artillery turrets, wagons, and shells as well as artillery
remote that allows you to manually aim towers up to 3 times it’s automatic range. We will see improvements to map generation
and transport belt optimization. Players can now enjoy high resolution textures
for terrain and addition of cliffs new imposible barriers introduced to the game you can now
use to your advantage in designing defense of your base. Developer of Dig or Die has started work on
the final feature to be added to the game before leaving Early Access. Under The Sea mode that will start players
well below the ocean level. Dig or Die is 2d base building survival game
with some interesting twists to the game. Players are tasked with surviving ongoing
attacks of waves of enemies each night. Your ability to build powerful well equipped
base will be essential to your survival. Game features physic like mechanics you will
need to build support for your bridges and roofs otherwise they will collapse under their
own weight. Water can travel down the slopes your perfect
underground bunker can quickly become death trap during heavy rain. Talking of rain game features water cycle
including rain, filtration, underground rivers and lakes. This is not the endless builder your ultimate
goal is to build a rocket to escape this deadly planet so all your actions are with this goal
in mind. Enemies are fairly intelligent and player
can control the flow of the battle during a game. Only monsters you attacked first will attack
you at night. Game also features complex base construction
with use of electricity, AI companions, and plant simulations allowing vegetation to grow
and spread. Game received 91% positive review score on
steam out of over 2300 reviews submitted. KeeperRL Alpha 24 is now available for testing
on steam. Players will be able to play with new prisoner
system. You can now now order your troops to capture
enemies rather than kill them, fight will become harder but reword of slaves is worth
the risk. You can use free labour to help you mine,
torture them for extra mana or attempt to convert them converted enemies will be forever
loyal minions in your army. However breaking will of the creatures isn’t
easy task and will result in about 50% death rate for your slaves. We will see Vampire Lord making a comeback
he is a powerful evil creature that you can capture and convert to serve you if you are
lucky. We will see expansion on endless mode, improvements
to doppelgangers making them far more balanced as well as improvements to resource balance
and monster AI. KeeperRL is ambitious and highly underrated
in my opinion dungeon simulator with roguelike and RPG elements. You take the role of an evil wizard and study
the methods of black magic. You will be able to equip your minions and
explore the world, murder innocent villagers and burn their homes. Finally you build your dungeon, lay traps
and prepare for an assault of angry heroes. Game is currently rated at 86% positive review
score on steam out of nearly 300 review submitted. It feels like almost every month I bring you
new updates from Oxygen Not Included and this time is no different. Ranching Upgrade Mark 1 is out. Mark 1 is a first out of 2 updates adding
new creatures and ranching mechanics to the game. We will see addition of wrangle tool that
allows your ranchers to capture creatures and move them around the base. Players will have access to many new buildings
and systems helping them care for creatures. Each critter has their own needs and conditions. You will be able to use feeders and grooming
stations to ensure good care of your pets. Obviously it wasn’t be much of a ranch if
you couldn’t breed your animals. If you keep your critters happy they will
mate and breed laying eggs that you will need to take care of in incubators. Apart of that we will see addition of 18 new
geysers, new database giving you all necessary information about each aspects of the game,
more priority tweaks, optimizations and improvements. Mark 2 is set to release 6 weeks later so
expect another update in May. As a fun fact there was almost 100 000 people
playing the game in last 2 weeks. Time to move to new releases and announcements. Kerbal Space Program new expansion Making
History was released on 13th of March. The expansion adds a wealth of new and exciting
content to the game, including a robust Mission Builder that lets players create and share
their own scenarios, and a History Pack containing missions inspired by historical moments in
space exploration. Mission builder is a new feature that allows
you to create new scenarios and mission for yourself or others to enjoy. You will be able to customize lunches, landings,
rescues, malfunctions and repairs. You will set unique victory conditions and
add new obstacles to the tasks. I will leave it up to you if this expansion
is worth your time as it is priced at half price of original game. Embark released on itch.io early access Embark is a deep colony sim in a huge living
world. Inspired by the deep simulation of Dwarf Fortress,
the open world survival of Minecraft, and the social interactions of The Sims. Embark follows a group of explorers who find
themselves on a strange, seemingly uninhabited planet. A fully 3D destructible world allows you to
build anything from small trading outposts to huge fortresses. An intuitive interface makes managing your
colony easy. Order your people to build complex structures
and sit back and watch as they complete them. Game features complex character simulation
and social interactions from the basics like hunger and thirst to more complicated relationships
like status and personalities. Mr Prepper has been announced for winter this
year. Mr. Prepper is about to being prepared. Mr. Prepper is the guy who live in a country
which once was the land of freedom but step by step its government changed everything. If you don’t obey – you disappear. Be as they want you to be or be gone. Your job is to prepare the escape in secret
you will have to – Build an underground shelter
– Craft machines that can keep you alive; farms, greenhouses, tools, vehicles etc. – Trade with neighbors, give them what they
need, get what is useful to you – Make a plan, you need to get out of this
country – Be aware of the secret police, they don’t
want you to be prepared, they want you to stay in their control There isn’t much info available about the
game but for now it looks like a combination of Fallout Shelter and This War of Mine I
will report back to you in couple of months when more info is revealed. Okay guys that is it in this month Indie Game
News. If you know of any other games that should
