[dropcap]I[/dropcap] don’t know why, but I’ve always had a thing for platforming/shooters, namely ones that let you aim freely with the mouse. Something about it is just really fun and satisfying, and Binji is looking to alleviate the odd lack of games like this with their new PVP survival title, Still Alive.
In Still Alive, you are one of few survivors left after a mysterious meteor hits Earth. You must defend yourself against horrifying monsters, fight off starvation, and make split-second and life-saving decisions at every turn. We’ve done all this before, but where Still Alive stands out is in its interesting multiplayer functionality. You can survive with – or fight against – up to 9 other players either in a free-for-all survival-off or on two teams of five, fighting off not only the hordes of monsters who totally want to eat your face, but intelligent and skilled players just like you. Set yourself apart from the crowd by customizing your character, and survive with friends as you explore the world, craft weapons, cook wild animals, and generally just have a good time until the other team shows up.
Still Alive is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter with an initial funding goal of $45,000. If you’d like to support the release of the game, you can vote for it on Steam Greenlight or back it on Kickstarter to receive incentives like soundtracks, beta testing privileges, exclusive character skins, and ways to contribute to the game creatively through graffiti or even character skins and billboards. Again, that’s Still Alive by Binji, currently on Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight.
