Survive! is a multiplayer first-person shooter in the spirit of "Serious Sam", but with creative building using wooden crates. Bloody, but cartoonish. You and the other players are trapped in a remote desert and are being attacked by waves of monsters. You need to pile up crates and react fast to defend yourself. The game can be played with 1 to 8 players, the difficulty will be adapted automatically.

Server list fixed

At some point in the last months, the server list (which is an integral part to this game) broke and just wouldn't show any newly opened servers. I really don't know when this happend, but it may have been connected to an update to the central servers I did last year. I'm really sorry about this!

Future development plans

As some of you may have noticed, there hasn't been a new version for more than a year. I hardly found time to work on the game, partly during private life and also because of another game project I'm currently working on.
However, there are still a lot of plans I have for this game.The problem is that I don't really know when I'll be able to implement them. I'll try to keep you a little more updated from now on, but I can't really give you a definite date for a next Alpha version, sorry.

There`s a problem with the game on my laptop. The problem is - the game won`t start. When i run it it load and then freeze. After moment i receive error screen with two options (Send Or Not Send). Don`t know if this is a problem with Windows 7 (i tried compability mode and it failed, tried running it on Admin - failed). Can you fix it? Thanks.

Another user had the same problem, there is one possible reason:
You have "data execution prevention" activated for all programs. In that case Survive! will crash when it tries to compile the shader effects.

Here is an official microsoft site guiding you through the steps to disable it for a single program. You can also set it to "Only enabled for important services (or similar)", that is no security issue either.

Thank you for reporting, this sometimes happens when there is something wrong with the server list.
You'll have to try again an hour later or something.
And if you have problems with a resolution, just delete the "options.cfg" file and your settings are reset.

Hey. I got idea to game. What about an vendor, who will be in 1 point of map, and you can spend points for money. Like Assault Rifle = 5000 Points.
+ Medic Class and Sniper I would be graceful.

I'm thinking about a sniper, would make sense.

Mines will find their way into the game, but different then you probably imagine ;)

I'm mainly planning two things:

- Powerups
- New innovative crate types and ways to combine them

Details will be released in the following weeks!

I see, so are you doing power-ups like Nazi Zombies From Cod?
except speed run, double jump ect...

Also i have been pondering on this for a bit, can you put in Tnt crates in a soon to come update. Like if it brakes or is shot enough it will explode a large area. I had a problem with "Trolls" destroying wanted crates on the field so this would be a great surprise.

that said, Great game! i have played it every day and i would love to see this game develop.

Hi there,

I have a bad bug. I can't connect to the Official Server 1 (I don't see the #2), every time I try, it stays on a black screen.
Other bug, my game crashes a lot when I go on server list. I have to reload the game like 10 time before it doesn't bug anymore.

On other hand, yesterday when I was trying to make servers with my friend, we discovered that servers with special characters in the name (like -_"') doesn't show in the server list.
And I discovered that when you are holding a box, and walk at normal speed with it, you can change weapons and reload them. Sure it is useful when playing to be able to reload and change weapons while holding a crate, but it's not so "realistic".

And has I told you yesterday, when a server shuts down, there is still the old message that says that the server is going in maintenance and will come back. Same for the help menu, it's kinda "old".

I also have a suggestion : what about sniper ? Not too powerfull, just an accurate aim because it's kinda hard to kill wizards with something other than the 357.

Thanks for reading me (sorry for my bad english), and I would thank you for this game. It's very fun to play it.
I'm also know as "Mo Mo Motus", but my main nickname is "Belnek".

Cya in game.

Thank you for all that feedback, its very welcome :)

I'm aware of most serverlist issues, I have yet to find the cause but I will at some point, I'm sure.
The other issues are also noted down and will be fixed.

Ok, I've added a hack to the server list, it now only shows the first 6 servers and should not crash anymore. No need to download a new version.

I'm working on a real fix now.
