Survive the Blackout is a great looking new narrative survival game from Baby Bison that will be released January 23, 2020. In what looks like a a side-scrolling journey crossed with interactive fiction, the game is set in a dark post-apocalyptic world where a mysterious global power outage sends the civilization spiraling down into chaos, the player must become the reluctant leader of a small group of survivors and try to get them to a safe haven. In their journey, every step is a choice to make, and none of them will be simple.
The world of Survive the Blackout isn’t your average extravagantly stylized, far-fetched post-apocalyptic setting. The game presents a plausible scenario of the fall of human civilization. A global power outage caused by factors unknown to general public is enough for the better part of the modern world to crumble and the society to collapse. The dire consequences of such an event are powerful enough, without the need to include any supernatural or fantastic motifs.
How did the Blackout affect the world? The survivors will traverse different regions, each with its own flavor, local storylines, unique risks and opportunities.
Through their eyes the player will experience the familiar world reduced to ruin and filled with desperation.
- Manage a small team of survivors
- Carefully make your choices as a branching narrative unfolds
- Scavenge for supplies and manage your resources
- Explore the world after the fall of civilization in multiple unique playthroughs
While the game releases in January, players can add the game to their Steam wishlists.
