Survival games are all the rage these days, as players love getting together with friends or venturing out on their own in order to try and brave the elements and channel their inner Bear Grylls. Due to all of that competition, it’s easy for even some of the best games to get lost in the shuffle. Despite all odds, though, even smaller titles are able tow build a dedicated community over the years and accomplish some pretty impressive feats.
That’s exactly what happened to developer Other Ocean’s Project Winter, which just crossed the 2.5 million players mark on Steam as of today. In this title, up to eight people must work together to survive the bitter cold tundra that this the game’s setting. To do this, you’ll need to craft items like Snow Shoes and Ice Bombs.
Why would you need an Ice Bomb you ask? Well similar to Among Us, there’s a traitor or traitors amidst your group that’ll do everything in their power to see you all dead. It’s a game that focuses on deception, subterfuge, and crafting, with the winners being declared when the Traitors are identified or all of the Survivors are killed or have escaped.
The news came by way of a press release for the game, as the developers are celebrating the milestone by releasing an update that features new craftable items. Alongside this, they’re also permanently dropping the price point of the game to $9.99. You can check out more info on Project Winter by heading over to the official Steam page, linked above.
