UnReal World is a combination of roleplaying game and a survival simulation. In a world inspired by iron-age Finland you can track animals, set traps, hunt with bows and spears, tan hides, go fishing, pick berries, cook food, sleep in a temporary shelter or build a log cottage, trade with the villagers, craft items, etc. It has a randomly generated map, skill development and a detailed wounds and combat system. The item crafting is moddable.

In march 2015 we started working on a brand new UnReal World update. Now 11 months later we have reached desired amount of awesomeness and the mission is soon accomplished. If the spirits are favourable release of UnReal World version 3.3 might take place in february.

This january is our final spurt with many fixes and various additions still being implemented for the upcoming release. At the moment it's a bit unsure if quests will make it to this version after all - simply because of probable lack of time to playtest them all properly. We will know the final outcome with quests at turn of the month. Until then it's all about the final spurt and going strong with new features being added on all fronts - as follows

A few tidbits from an evergrowing list of new features


We've got the graphics update done with hundreds of new tiles and map lighting effects. In addition, the game outlook also changes with rearranged right-panel statistics view.

Various dialogs have been stylized and there's more viewport for game messages:

Graphical clues of heard sound are now shown within the new upper-right corner heading box. Sound clues now stay visible for a longer time and fade away gradually.

Here the sound from west is the most recent, and other graphical sound clues are slowly fading away:

Recruiting companions have been improved, and now you can also ask about their weapon skills. This is most useful when want you need an experienced companion for a challenging hunting trip or adventure.

Asking about villager's weapon skills. Three replies from three different NPCs:

Building a fire has been improved in many ways. For example, carrying lit torch or having fire in adjacent tile helps to start a new a fire and some smaller kindling is always required to set larger pieces of wood on fire.

Mood picture. Settling for the night in the woods with an older companion. We've made hole in the ice for drinking water, and to keep warm it's best to build a few fires -- with the help of proper kindling and new game mechanics:

Honestly, this game was a nice surprise when I stumbled upon it. I've yet to play it all that much, but I mostly like what I see. Keep up the effort guys, I've even voted for your little project in the IndieDB Awards. Good luck with continuing the development. :-)

Pour les français de passage : UnReal World est un jeu d'une profondeur, et d'une liberté ahurissante. Il n'en existe pas deux comme lui, n'hésitez pas à l'essayer, même si vous êtes frileux avec l'anglais, il mérite largement de s'impliquer un peu pour dépasser la barrière de la langue, surtout que les mécanismes du jeu et les graphismes sont plutôt intuitifs, donc rapidement assimilables (contrairement à un certain Dwarf Fortress). Le jeu est en développement depuis 1992, il est donc largement mûr et complet ! Et toujours en développement. De plus il est gratuit, mais des donations sont possibles (et méritées).

Que demander de plus? :)

UnReal World is a deep, astonishing game. Give it a try ! It's free, with donation at will (largely deserved).

Tiens, Silaith, si ça t'interesse j'avais commencé une traduction de l'encyclopedie du jeu il y a quelques temps.

C'est une bonne initiative, mais je ne vois rien de ta part (lien ou message privé...). Par ailleurs, si tu sais s'il est possible de traduire le jeu je suis volontaire pour t'aider. J'ai participé à celle de Distant Worlds dans l'équipe de Mundus Bellicus.

Ah, effectivement, je n'avais pas le fichier sous la main, donc je ne l'ai pas joints... (Je vais l'exhumer ce week end).

Une partie du jeu peut être traduite, mais pas tout encore. Je vais demander à Sami (le développeur) ce qui peut être fait...

I am following that game since a few years. And to be honest, it evolved a lot lately (in the good direction) and is always a pleasure to discover what new things have been added after a few calm months. It is one of the most in depth survival games around (not the zombie style, but the one were you are sent into wilderness with nothing but a knife and have to find a way to make your own food, fire, clothes, house...). I love the fact too that it is based on the real finnish medieval era, with an…
