I can only play on the Asia Server

There needs to be an icon of where you are on the map

just like on a real paper map? ;-)

Is it possible to make an own server for friends? 

currently you can not.

when it looks for servers it says : cannot retrieve server list then i can only exit game

what can I do ?

Sounds like the server was offline. Does it work now for you?

hey man thx to the quick answer. You were right, I just checked and it worked. gonna play tonight. and consider a good donation!

Much appreciated!

Hello, I recently downloaded this game  and I ran it smoothly and well with a low end desktop. The performance wasn't an issue though, I ran the game for the first time and it crashed. I ran it again and it was fine didn't crash or anything, logged on to a us server logged off because I died. But I quit the game because the resolution was horrible, but now every time I log in to the game log in to my account and press play, it says that I got timed out. Please fix this, I enjoy these types of games and if this game didn't do this I would rate it 7/10 for an ALPHA game most of those points are because the game doesn't look bad, the community isn't toxic and it runs very well on a low end pc. But the mechanics are little faulty such as the stairs, jumping , respawn mechanic, the loot respawn timer is very long , and also the ping but I can't complain that much for a Alpha game. Overall, I enjoyed this game it's just one issue that is a game breaker for me atleast.

My specs :)

Core: Intel core I5-3470

GPU: PNY Geforce gt 710 512mb (Dedicated)

RAM: 8gb ddr3

Storage: HDD mechanical 500gb (forgot the "speed" :P)

Display: 1920x1080p

Timeout usually means there is a problem with the backend server. Can you please try again now?

Ok I will hop on

Edit: It works, also a quick suggestion can you make a "remember me" function? Thanks.

I rather not store your password in plain text in the windows registry.

hello your game is very good just I have a bug beacause my steuf are not save.

sorry I am french

It saves your inventory PER SERVER and only if you log out normally and you didn't die. :) So if you played on EU1 and join EU2 after that, you will not have the same inventory!

Hey whats the discord???

would be great if i could get past the verify stuff at the start .... nothing sent to my email (even checked spam, yes), went to support, clicked the link to resend and nothing resent, tried the re register,  nothing... doubled check my detais, all was correct. whats left? 

mail me your account details. info@survius.com

I can't join any server!! How should I proceed?

If all servers are greyed out, that means your ping to each server region (South America, America, Europe, Asia) is over 250 milliseconds. That means your internet connection is not fast enough to play this game sadly.

whats the discord

im blind lol

i can register but i cant login i type the right words it keeps saying ))ERROR)) you need to validate your account.)nCheck your email. HELP PLS

Goes in the message box of your email and confirms the account.

Is there a way to talk?

There is a Discord server running, but no native VoIP. You can type in the public game chat.

how can i create my own account

I'm from Brazil, we played a lot of this game, please, Aki, and great, keep improving it, please, thank you for this game, bye.

This game is great overall but I'm having 1 issue...

It crashes alot :(

But I don't really mind, I kind of expected that for a free game.

Overall a great game and I will keep playing!

Hopefully you make the game better and also, plz make thing easier to find, it took me about 40 mins to find 2 sodas... Plz make this respawn faster

Umm how do you play.... like how do you punch and gather weapons please help!!!

When entering a server, press F1. It explains the keys for you.

Deleted post

I just checked, you were banned for using a speed hack.




I found this game from your reddit post

haha same


Nice detective skills :p


Can you provide a link? I am curious now :)



There you are

Why Can not I Join No Server? Everybody Appears In Gray And Will not Leave Me Click To None

that means your ping is over 250 for all servers.

How do you make an axe in this game?

You need to scavenge it from houses.

i will not pay to be a pussy

i mean, i will not pay for clothes

You're not paying for clothes, you're paying to keep development of this free game going. The clothes are just a way for me to say thank you.

is it gonna stay free

Only if the donations outweigh the costs.

I'm playing the 20 days, I am trying to access the Forum and it's the same game 503 error.

Service Unavailable

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.                     Additionally, a 503 Service Unavailable error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. 


Congratulations on very good game!

This has been fixed.

Hi, for some reason, my game stays on the '' loading objects '' screen and never loads, what should I do?

Try a server with less people, see if it works then. And check the forums, more people seem to have this problem.

Awesome game with friends some things to add are custom servers, mods, first person view, and of course bug fixes! LOVE THE GAME!!

Hello, before the game I was perfect but when I install this version it stays in loading objects and does not start.
The sound of the game is heard but does not start.
Please help

Th transition between animations is a bit... you know. Since you are using Unity. I suggest to use blend trees. Jumping mechanics are a bit weird. Stairs are a nightmare. I would like to see it updated.

(Edited 1 time)

Fell down a 30cm high ledge, lost some health. Tried food, drinks, herbal medicine, antibiotics and a large medkit, nothing restored my health.

Eventually died from little bits of damage sustained each time I walked off a small ledge or stairs.

fml/10, would recommend

I personally think it's a DayZ and Unturned replica.

The concept of it is intruiging, and It had me playing for two days with a hour or two of gameplay each day, During these two days, I have also seen a few things that a few newcomers of the game might want to know, beforehand.

1. It installs outside of itch you do download on itch, and you can run on itch, and you when you uninstall, it uninstalls via itch, but it is registered as a proper application, Unlike other Itch.io games, when you download this game, the icon does appear on your desktop. You also do have to register for a account

2. The servers The servers in this game are  one of two things: You either get a REALLY good ping, or you get a REALLY bad ping. There is no in between.

3. Zombies Now I must admit, me being a Game Developer, I understand that this kind of stuff is a challenge to program. However, in my expierence while playing, Every time I found a zombie, I died, because there was not enough resources around me, I got told by the players to "Look around in houses" but I found nothing, I was in two Servers (the America 1, and America 2) and I found nothing. Because of this, I didn't really see the use in trying

4. The Day/Night Cycle Gonna keep this short, I asked a player how long is it day, and how long is it night. They said that the day is 20 minutes, and the night is 10-15 minutes (real time) and at night, you can barely see anything unless you have a campfire or something.

I do think this game has potential, but it's just I think the following things would be needed to make this game playable for people like me:

-Singleplayer mode At least a mode where I can have a private server, ya know, have a password and username, then have people connect to their, then have public servers)

-Respawning Items I haven't found any axes, that could probably be my luck, but at least have more spawning things so it's easier for newcomers to actually start PLAYING the game, not wandering around

-Less DayZ like DayZ is a good game, but while playing this, the only thing that came to  mine was "DayZ, DayZ, oh yeah, DayZ" this game is different from DayZ, but it just seems like a DayZ + Unturned ripoff.

My Ping is too high, always 3000, or 2000, help me, I can not play right, Help me guys, please

(Edited 4 times)

things to fix: red tint when hurt (it stays even after healing or re log ).

frames drop when players leave.

crashing (ive only experienced once).

extremely dark at night .

zombies spawn near bases at night.

things to add: a respawn system .

custom servers.

health bar.

hunger bar.

thirst bar. 

a system that allows friends to build onto each others bases and enter them.

different backpacks that allow you to hold more things in your inv.

Great game otherwise
