Survived By is a massively multiplayer bullet hell roguelite where death is just the beginning and you carry on your legacy through your descendants.
Survived By is currently in development by Human Head Studios (creators of Rune and Prey) and Digital Extremes (Warframe) and allows players to team up and fight their way through a fantasy land that’s been infected with a corruption that mutates everything it touches into murderous monsters. As you explore the land you’ll battle fearsome monsters in real-time, earn loot, craft powerful equipment, fight powerful bosses and die. Death isn’t the end though, Survived By allows you to pass on ancestral legacies to each new generation – so you may end up with more health or you’ll be less susceptible to damage from certain monsters.
We first featured Survived By a year ago during the closed Alpha sign up and since then it’s see a wide range of game enhancing updates – including hard mode dungeons, an updated UI, improved artwork, better crafting, new bullet patterns and a weapn attribute system. Also, there’s now no NDA (so streaming and Let’s Plays are allowed) and they’re also launching their first monthly in-game event, The Prophecies of Sin, which sees embarking on a limited time quest to defeat The Ziggurat of Sin to earn unique armour, weapons, and accessories.
It’s a fun game that blends humor, roguelike dungeon crawling and bullet hell gameplay to create a fun, fast paced and deadly massively multiplayer experience. The monthly in-game events are a welcome addition too as it will make it into much more of a live experience and Digital Extremes have certainly had a lot of success on that front with Warframe. Sign up for the Beta to see if you can survive in Survived By.
