Will to Survive is a real-time survival RPG set in Brighton. You control Will, a resourceful survivor living in a world inhabited by deadly alien invaders. The objective of the game is to keep Will alive for as long as you possibly can. Will to Survive offers a true survival experience unlike any other, it's persistent and perpetual world means even events while you are away from the game are simulated, so make sure you have enough supplies to last or you may well return to find your Will has been destroyed. The game is targeted for most available formats including desktops, mobiles and tablets. What's more Will to Survive will offer you the ability to synchronise your save to any device meaning you can check on your Will any time of the day, even on the move. And, did I mention it's permadeath... if Will dies, you start from the beginning. Everyone has a Will to Survive... how long yours lives is up to you.
A brief look into how weapon customisation will work in the game along with some artwork.

In today's update I wanted to talk a little about the role weapon customisation will have in the game.
Here in the UK we don't have access to a lot of weaponry. We don't have AK47's and M1911's lying around the place so the ones you do find will be quite precious. Adapting them and improving them will be quite important. Adding scopes for example will increase your accuracy at various distances as well as the speed you can acquire a target. You'll be able to attach flash lights and laser targeting either by standard means or just by using some tape you once scavenged. Some of the attachments will be able to be transferred too as long as it wasn't a permanent fixture.
Possibly the most important feature will be the ability to adapt some of the alien tech. You may find the ability to do this yourself or failing that find a helpful survivor willing to trade you something in return for his expertise in the matter. As enemies get bigger, you'll need something more powerful than that .22 rifle of yours!
At the end of the day Will needs as much help as possible, as time goes on the threat grows stronger and ammunition will be harder to find. Gather what you can and adapt to the ever changing world around you.
The kickstarter still has 25 days to go, if you can pledge that would be great but sharing is also important. Let's get the word out there! Also if we can get this green lit then anybody receiving the game as part of a reward tier will automatically receive a free steam key.
