We discussed Darwin Project on our latest Podcast - a battle royale game from Montreal developer Scavengers Studios. The twist of which is that, similar to Hunger Games, there is a Dungeon-Master type character that can control various parts of the match.
The Darwin Project takes place in a dystopian post-apocalyptic landscape in the Northern Canadian Rockies. As preparation for an impending Ice Age, a new project, half science experiment half live-entertainment, is launched. It's called the "Darwin Project" and it challenges participants to survive the cold and fight to the death in a treacherous arena. The Darwin Project offers a competitive multiplayer third person survival experience featuring at its core a new gameplay innovation: the manhunt. In his or her path to victory, a player must survive extreme environmental conditions, track opponents, and set traps in order to win.
The team is going “off radar” as they prepare for the official launch of Darwin Project, which all the details you can read in the below tweet:
