About Wayward

About this game

Wayward is a challenging turn-based, top-down, wilderness survival roguelike.

In Wayward, there is a large focus on simulation, exploration, and discovery. There are no classes; there are no levels. Progression of your character depends on individual skill and stat gains by your interactions with items or objects in the world. You are free to play and explore the game in any fashion you wish.

Wayward is a traditional roguelike, meaning it has random environment generation, (optional) permadeath, turn-based gameplay, grid-based movement, complexity, non-modal interactions, resource/inventory management, and more. As such, Wayward is similar to games like UnReal World, Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead, or Dwarf Fortress.

Some of Wayward's key features include:

  • Sandbox survival game mechanics mixed with roguelike gameplay.
  • Over 630 items to craft, discover and interact with.
  • Deep, multi-faceted skill system with over 25 skills.
  • More than 50 creatures and animals to combat, harvest, or tame.
  • Iterative game design and community feedback driven with transparent development.
  • Online multiplayer with optional PVP mode.
  • 25+ hours of content and gameplay before reaching the “end-game” with supplemental content requiring hundreds of hours.
  • Infinite procedural generation with four island types featuring unique content for each biome.
  • Optional permadeath (hardcore), or respawning (casual) modes.
  • 45 milestones to unlock that provide unique gameplay modifiers.
  • Ability to rollback to previous versions or play the latest development build of the game before public release via Steam.
  • Choose from the following game modes: hardcore, casual, challenge, or custom.
  • Day and night system with temperature effects.
  • Character customization.
  • Dynamic reputation and difficulty system.
  • Play in turn-based (default), simulated turn-based (multiplayer only), or real-time modes.
  • Modding and Steam Workshop support with extensive development tools.
  • 18 custom music tracks.

I really wanted to like the game. The Survivalists is a great game that I enjoyed immensely and Wayward seemed similar. The graphics are good, as is the soudtrack. There is a lot to discover, some combat, some crafting. Sadly, some of the mechanics are just no well done in Wayward. The crafting is obnoxious, you have to figure the recipes out yourself and many of them are not necessarily logical. Some of them take forever to come up with, or you have to look at the wiki for answers, which is annoying. Sometimes you are also just plain out of luck and spawn on an island that you just cannot survive on because of limited ressouces. Sometimes an unforseen incident can ruin your playthrough completely without any way of saving the situation. If you like very hardcore survival games this might be something for you, but for me it was pure frustration.

Great little game that you can easily sink hours into, developers have clearly invested a lot of time in polishing this game with updates still being rolled out.
