Fortress Craft Evolved was released on Steam’s Early Access over a month ago, since that day, gamers have been begging ProjectorGames for a Survival Mode. ProjectorGames have finally answered that question, with a yes.
“A survival mode was always in the plans, but the players asked for it so frequently and adamantly that we bumped it up on the schedule so we can give them what they want now.” says Sawkins.
In this new survival mode, players will have to gather resources and build machines to stay alive and keep hypothermia from setting in. This new mode still has the “creative spirit” that the rest of the game does, but not players will have to survive. Keep in mind that survival mode is not completely developed, ProjectorGames wants to implement some more mechanics and also invading robots as they have promised. Take a look at the Survival Handbook and some survival mode gameplay below.
Environmental hazards such as heat, cold, toxic air and more require the use of the state-of-the-art suit you are wearing to stay alive, too bad your suit uses a lot of battery power sustaining life support! Here is what you’ll need to do to survive:
During the day, your suit is designed to absorb sunlight and power the battery.
Press ‘=’ to enter the Block Manager and check the box for ‘Machinery’ to see what you can make.
You have one Central Power HUB block in your inventory, use it to turn harvested resources into power to charge adjacent machinery.
Build Torches to heat your suit during the night time.
Dig deep for rare resources such as Gold, Lithium and Iron.
Pay close attention to the battery discharge rate on your suit, a Blue Bar indicates that extreme cold is affecting your suit whereas a Red Bar indicates extreme heat. When the bar is Green your suit is not currently being drained to maintain a livable temperature.
Use of the Jetpack and the Headlamp items cause faster depletion of your battery.
Watch out for mechanical spiders!
