Die Young takes elements of survival games, but also adds a thrilling narrative experience as you fight to survive on an unforgiving Mediterranean island.
It is the approach of many survival games to simply abandon the player in an open world and leave them to survive, craft and advance without any sort of guidance or story.
Die Young has a different approach, interweaving a narrative into the survival mechanics to create a new and unique experience.
You play as a woman who has been kidnapped and dragged to a Mediterranean island for reasons unknown. Your number one enemy is the sun, so hydration is key to surviving and eventually escaping the island. Explore to discover the island’s history and secrets, then tool yourself up to fight the deadly threats that are hidden within the beautiful landscape.
Die Young has been in early access on Steam since June 2017, but is finally ready for a full release on September 12th.
You can download and play the prologue for the game for free, which gives you a 1-2 hour taste of the story and gameplay. Check out the trailer below.
