UnReal World, first released in 1992, has just hit Steam.


The open-world surival roguelike from developer Enormous Elk is currently available on Steam with a launch discount, bringing the price down from $10.99 to $9.34.

It’s also available through the game’s official site for free. The Steam version will be adding achievements, cloud saves and trading cards, and should sate those who simply don’t play PC games that aren’t available through Steam.

In UnReal World you join one of nine different cultures and find ways to survive within the world. There are numerous ways to play the game – according to the description on the game’s site, “there are infinite ways to play the game: as a fisherman, a hermit searching for the peace, a brave adventurer, a rough hunter, a trapper or a tradesman, etc.”

Despite being first released 24 years ago, UnReal World is still updated and patched: the last patch released was on March 17 2015, and the game is currently up to version 3.20.
