Survival sandbox Scum adds rude gestures, cave networks and human skin masks

Scum may be detailed enough to let you urinate or even defecate on your foes, but that requires you to be up close. A raised middle finger? Well, that's your new ranged option for offensive offending. In today's early access update, prisoners attempting to survive the zombie and robot-infested hell that is Gamepires's Scum have a few new options. These include hiding in caves, making…

Feature: Health kick

Premature Evaluation: Scum

Premature Evaluation is the weekly column in which we explore the wilds of early access. This week, Fraser’s trying to lead a healthier, happier life in Scum, the multiplayer survival sim. Scum’s wall of data is mesmerising. From the moment I arrived on the island, every spare second, and even seconds I couldn’t spare, was dedicated to staring at it. The readings and statistics told…

Scum adds anti-cheat to fight the real scum

It's always galling to be murdered when you're on the pot, but doubly so when killed by a cheater. The 'DayZ but with robots and pooing' survival sandbox Scum has (hopefully?) solved that shitty problem over the weekend by adding anti-cheat tech, which is a feature I'm honestly surprised to hear a high-profile murderous multiplayer game had launched without. Known cheats for Scum included an…

Survival sandbox Scum enters early access and looks a lot like DayZ

Survival sandbox Scum may boast astonishingly detailed health management systems (shown above) but under that veneer of hyper-complexity beats a familiar heart. Published by Devolver Digital and entering early access today, Scum resembles zombie survive 'em up DayZ, brief source of zeitgeist before battle royale shooters took over. Set in a massive open-air prison, up to 64 players per server try to feed, clothe and…

Devolver’s survival sandbox Scum enters early access August 29th

Devolver Digital's whole brand is edgy nostalgia but it is weird they're casting a misty-eyed gaze back to the distant year of 2012, when "Friendly!" shouts in DayZ were the sound of the summer, with multiplayer online survival murder sandbox Scum. We'll get to relive those halcyon days soon, as Devolver have announced an early access launch date of August 29th. Prepare to once again…

Devolver Announce Scum, Croteam’s Survive ‘Em Up

Devolver Digital, the publishers of such brash games as Hotline Miami and Broforce, have announced that they're publishing Scum [official site], a multiplayer open-world survival game headed to Steam Early Access in 2017. That doesn't seem like Devolver's style, given that they've traditionally blazed their own path and inspired imitators rather than the other way around, but hey! There's an edgy twist, of course: you…

Feeding The Machine: Gas Guzzlers Demo

"Gas Guzzlers" seems like an odd name for a game - as if the best thing about cars is the amount of fuel they consume. Anyway, that's besides the point, and the point is that this combat-racing game now has a demo out. Here it is, one point six of your Internet gigabytes. Man, they don't make 'em like this anymore. Time was there used…

Engines Of Destruction: Gas Guzzlers

Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage is sort of a 3D Death Rally, or at least that's what it looks like and that's reason enough for me to be quite eager to see if that's what it plays like. Customisable cars with guns on top drive around and pretend to race each other while actually only really caring about exploding one another. It's out in just four…
