The Survival tag refers to a genre of games that focus on the player's ability to survive in challenging and often hostile environments. These games typically require players to manage resources, overcome threats, and make strategic decisions in order to stay alive.

In Survival games, players are usually placed in an open-world or sandbox environment where they must scavenge for resources such as food, water, and shelter. The scarcity of these resources creates a sense of urgency and forces players to make difficult choices about how best to utilize them.

The gameplay mechanics of Survival games often include elements such as crafting, hunting or gathering food, building shelters or fortifications for protection, managing health and hunger levels, and defending against enemies or dangerous creatures. Players may also have to contend with environmental hazards like extreme weather conditions or natural disasters.

Some well-known examples of Survival games include:

  • Minecraft This popular sandbox game combines survival elements with creative building. Players must gather resources from the environment while avoiding enemies at nightfall.
  • Rust In this multiplayer survival game, players must collect resources and build bases while also defending themselves from other players who may pose a threat.
  • The Long Dark Set in a frozen wilderness after a global disaster, this game focuses on surviving through exploration and resource management while facing harsh weather conditions and wildlife encounters.
  • Don't Starve This Tim Burton-style survival game challenges players to explore strange worlds filled with hostile creatures while managing their hunger levels and sanity.

Survival games offer immersive experiences that test the player's ability to adapt under challenging circumstances. They often emphasize realism through mechanics like permadeath (permanent death) or limited resources, providing a sense of tension and rewarding careful planning and decision-making. Whether surviving in a post-apocalyptic wasteland or fending off creatures on a desert island, these games provide a thrilling and often unforgiving challenge.
