The Darwin Project is a multiplayer survivalist manhunt from Scavengers Studio, with the action taking place in a post-apocalyptic landscape in the Northern Canadian Rockies. As preparation for an impending Ice Age, a new half science experiment, half live-entertainment project is launched. It’s called The Darwin Project, and it challenges inmates to survive the cold and fight to the death in a treacherous snow covered arena. Step into the shoes of one of seven inmates and see if you have what it takes to survive. Can you overcome the cold, the environmental dangers, and the other inmates to come out on top?
The Darwin Project Key Features
Epic Manhunt – On his or her path to victory, a player must survive extreme environmental conditions, track opponents, and set traps in order to win. The seven players will try to outsmart each other using crafting, tracking, hunting, cunning, and other survivalist skills, and even negotiate temporary alliances to come out on top at sunrise.
Harsh Wilderness – The Canadian Rockies are among the most beautiful – and unforgiving – places on earth. Players must brave the cold, scavenge what they need to survive and fight, and use the terrain to their advantage.
It’s All For Show – The Darwin Project is redefining the arena-survival sub-genre, adding on elements of a reality show — complete with a ‘Show Director’ who calls the shots and controls the arena, to create an entirely new competitive experience. In a twist, the Show Director can control things in the arena, adding a new level of engagement.
