Unturned review

I’ve been wondering for a while what kinds of games kids who grew up playing Minecraft and Roblox would go on to make for themselves. This is a generation that’s been immersed in modding culture and open objectives since it could grasp a mouse, and I’m fascinated to see how that might have formed new attitudes to games in general. One particular answer is Unturned…

Grrg! Arrrg! Unturned leaves early access

Free-to-play DayZ-o-Minecraft 'em up Unturned [official site] has launched in full, after three years in early access. The biggest part of the update taking it to full release is a new sandbox map set in Germany. Chris Livingstone had a crack at Unturned after it rocketed into Steam's top 10 most-played games within a week, a position it has impressively clung close to ever since…

Survival Games Are Important

In early 2012, a mod for Arma II called DayZ was released. Two-and-a-half years later, its odd mixture of multiplayer, horror, and a need for players to keep themselves fed and watered, has given rise to the survival genre. Let's celebrate that genre.

The Lighthouse Customer: Unturned

Each Monday, Chris Livingston visits an early access game and reports back with stories about whatever he finds inside. This week, surviving a few free-to-play DayZ days and Minecraft nights in Unturned. Don't let their looks fool you. Yes, the boxy zombies of Unturned are utterly adorable. On farms, they wear straw hats and overalls. In towns, they dress like chefs, construction workers, businessmen, and…

Unturned: Minecraft Meets DayZ Meets Huge Popularity

In my day, we had to trawl through messageboards - uphill in both directions - to find new games we'd never heard of before. Now it's possible to occasionally look at Steam's top ten most played list and find something unfamiliar. That's what happened today when Craig sent through word of Unturned, a game whose popularity seems almost inevitable: it's an Early Access free-to-play multiplayer…
