What if we release the player on an island with primitive creatures so he has to fight for survival? That’s the idea Studio Wildcard has brought to the table, transitioning a fine line between realism and fantasy with its ideas of survival and animal domestication. It is possible to play networked with other players or alone, in single player mode.
The survival experience is more intense as the studio introduces it, alone and without weapons. The player is challenged by the mysterious island to gather resources, create tools, take shelter from the odds of nature and, when strong enough, go out hunting and expanding their territory, in addition to being able to tame dinosaurs and use them as mounts.
The title features several biomes that take the player from land to sea and also underground, each with its own ecosystem and increasing the range of interaction options between the player and nature. Ark: Survival Evolved is an intense survival experience blending the foundation presented with Minecraft with the madness of riding dinosaurs. Fun and exaggerated, it’s worth knowing.

On My Own is a Minecraft-style game with a slightly more questioning focus, not on the world or social movements, but on what you aim to achieve, what your goal is. The title introduces this through the narrative of the protagonist who wants to conquer the top of the mountain in this pixelated universe that pays homage to the industry of the past.
Through four different biomes, the player needs to collect resources and discover recipes to survive and it becomes clear that as you progress, the more difficult the adventure becomes as weather conditions disadvantage the player.
