Smalland: Survive The Wilds is an open-world survival game that challenges players to survive as one of a race of tiny people in a vast, hazardous world.

"Before the time of the giants, we lived freely under the Sun and Moon. Centuries have passed, but those stories of the surface world have been passed down through the generations. Now the giants are gone, and you, Vanguard, must venture out into the wilds once more, on an urgent mission. Be brave, and do not falter…"

Experience a big adventure on a tiny scale! Enjoy multiplayer survival in a vast, hazardous world. Preparation is key when you're this small & at the bottom of the food chain.

Players will explore the game’s beautiful world, battle everyday creatures which now see them as lower on the food chain, build encampments and craft powerful armor sets with scavenged resources.  

As they gain a foothold in this dangerous environment, players will also be able to find creatures to tame and ride as they battle the elements and explore the world from a whole new perspective. 

Merge Games revealed that Smalland: Survive The Wilds is coming to Steam Early Access on March 29, 2023.

“After many months of fantastic work from the development team here at Merge, and multiple closed playtests, we are nearing the final stages of development and getting ready to release Smalland: Survive the Wilds into Early Access on PC,” commented Luke Keighran, Managing Director of Merge Games. “We hope fans like the new name and logo, and we can’t wait for players to immerse themselves in the world we’ve created on March 29th.” 

“We will continue to add to Smalland: Survive the Wilds world. More creatures to battle and tame, more NPCs, more armor sets, more building parts and materials, more lore, more customizations, and further expansion of the game world.”

“We want to get everything we envisioned for Smalland into the game. We also want to ensure that Smalland: Survive the Wilds is a game the community enjoys. To achieve both these things we believe this will take between six months and a year depending, on the user feedback.”

Key Features:

  • Explore the vast “Land of the Small": Traverse lake sized puddles, scale skyscraper sized trees, scramble through cavernous cracks in roads, as you experience a huge open world from a new perspective. Explore dense forests, hazardous swamps and strange ruins left over from the time before. Uncover lore and knowledge from hidden NPCs scattered throughout the world and learn to survive in this vast wilderness.
  • Tame and ride creatures: Uncover recipes that will let you tame and ride an array of critters. Leap huge distances on the back of a Grasshopper, zoom around on a Damselfly, scurry from place-to-place on a Spider. This world and its inhabitants are yours to conquer.
  • Survive together: Play alongside friends with support for up to 10 players in multiplayer. Explore together, fight together, build together and survive the wilds as a team. For those who prefer to take the fight to others, PvP is toggleable by the host.
  • Build encampments on the ground or amongst the trees: Scavenge or refine resources to build your encampment with multiple material tiers, from leaves and twigs to sturdy stone. Pick your favorite spot in the world and build, or scale vast trees and claim your own settlement at the top.
  • Craft powerful armor sets: Collect powerful armors that provide you with resistances and abilities and mix them up to personalize your appearance. Glide through the skies in winged armor, swing from tree to tree with the grappling hook and many more.
  • Survive the Wilds: Most of the creatures you encounter will see you as lower on the food chain – Ants, Cockroaches, Beetles, Wasps, and Spiders all view you as a potential meal. Weather conditions and seasons are in constant flux so if you want to survive for another day, preparation is key.

Smalland: Survive the Wilds is in development for PC (Steam), Epic Games) scheduled for full release in late 2023/early 2024.
