the wild eight

The game tells the story of eight people whose everyday lives are forever changed after a horrific plane crash. They now find themselves stranded in the middle of nowhere, deep in the forests of Alaska. Welcome to a world without civilization, where you and the other survivors are at the mercy of nature — and wild animals starved by the cold!


While the survivors await rescue, their lives are threatened by a number of mysterious entities, unseen creatures and objects that definitely don’t belong in this world. And the deeper you go, the harder it gets to survive. Through the storyline you’ll desperately try to reach help on the radio, but no one’ll answer you. Something is wrong here. In here is no room for mistakes: if you went hunting but forgot to cut some wood for the fire before nightfall, you’re dead. If you didn’t have time to cook your meat, you might have to eat it raw — and if you don’t have medicine, you’ll surely die from food poisoning. To stay alive, you’ll need to scavenge and craft like a pro.


You can play The Wild Eight on your own, but the game fully opens up in co-op mode. Other players are your only backup — either by sharing resources or covering your back! Even if you were mauled by wolves and "you died" appears onscreen, your teammate can still resuscitate you with a defibrillator (which are very rare to find, by the way).

The Pre-Alpha Demo was created to demonstrate some basic in-game mechanics. It’s not a final product in any way :)

The Wild Eight - Pre-alpha Demo


We did not include multiplayer in this build, so your character will wake up alone near the crash site. Survival time! After figuring out the controls, don’t run straight away from the wreckage: Try to find something useful there...

The bonfire is your new best friend. You’ll need it for getting warm and cooking mushrooms and meat. The terrain is full of animals, but hunting them with your bare hands is not that easy; it’s better to craft a heavy stick and some throwing stones.

Is your hero not powerful or fast enough? Upgade his skills in the Shelter menu (Shelter Level 2 required). Now, you’re ready to leave the camp in search of rescue. The world is procedurally-generated, so remember to use a map to avoid getting lost.

Good luck!

We decided to make a paid game without any in-game purchases to make sure that only skills will matter, not money.
