Wayward is a turn-based, top-down, wilderness survival roguelike currently in beta. In Wayward, there is a large focus on simulation, survival and openness. 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.

  • No more catastrophic failures (resulting in lost items) on crafting, planting, etc.
  • Discover new crafts dynamically by crafting or finding instructional scrolls.
  • Stand-alone executable (Windows only, for now).
  • Legendary (magical) items are now craftable.
  • Right click to get information on any given tile.
  • Lots of performance fixes.
  • Quicker skill gains and skill gains on failures.
  • As always, more items, monsters, recipes, tiles and more!

This game is good. Since it's beta, I want to give you suggestions. The inventory system isn't well organized. If you have a large assortment of items, and try to equip armor, it will drop it in another place in the inventory instead.

Ya, that's a known issue. Hopefully the interface will get a nice overhaul for the next version :)
