Get yo bow and go innawoods

You know what some people love? Camping. Nature. The great outdoors in general. You know what a lot of people hate? Camping. Nature. The great outdoors in general. If only there was way for people who love camping to do it way more often. If only there was a way for people who hate camping to go camping with actually...camping. OH WAY, THERE TOTALLY IS, ITS TIME TO CELEBRATE!
Celebrate inside, where there's electricity
The game today is UnReal World RPG, and the best way I can describe it is by taking a blurb straight from the website its from. " UnReal World is a unique low-fantasy roguelike game set in the far north during the late Iron-Age. The world of the game is highly realistic, rich with historical atmosphere and emphasized on survival in the harsh ancient wilderness." So yeah, camping without leaving your heated/air conditioned house. Like all roguelikes what it lacks in graphics it makes up for in mechanics and general depth to the game, such as the various tribes with their different advantages and disadvantages, the number of skills to train in, the rituals to find, and the various "classes". Between all that and the world randomization you could play for a very long time without ever having to play the same way twice, one of the biggest draws of roguelikes.
You'll never get bored of the different ways you can get your ass kicked!
They arent joking when they say this game is about survival, as everything is out to kill you, from the wildlife to the environment. Not only are there wolves and bears out there but deer can kick your ass as well if you drop the ball. That isnt even getting into the hunger and thirst systems, so have fun eating the clothes off your back because you cant chase down squirrels, and then immediately getting frost bite because its winter and you have no clothing.
you need the right skills to make bacon yourself
Originally UnReal World RPG was something you'd have to pay for, but some time ago the developer for it just decided to run off of a donation based format, so if you REALLY like this game and want to give back, you totally can. If you like nature but cant hang out in the woods like a crazed hermit in real life, or if you hate nature and want to play the game to tell yourself "look at all the ways I can die out here, there isnt even any video games", or if you want a game to play in your doomsday bunker to remind yourself the surface wasnt a blasted hellscape populated by mutants and cannibal hipsters, then UnReal World RPG might be for you!
"Haha, no, I'm not going back out there"
