Wild West Survival Early Access Action
Wild West Survival is an open world survival game from indie developer Altair Games LLC who is also self publishing the title. The game features an impressively huge open world and everything that would be expected in the wild west.
It is the wild west frontier and if one wants to stay alive they need to provide the basics of food, shelter, and protection. All of this can be accomplished through crafting, hunting, farming, fishing, and building. If that seems like a lot of work, well, don’t be fooled because it is a lot of work. However, if a player wants to they can partake in raiding to get what they need. In the end the name of the game is Wild West Survival and the winner gets to survive.
