Above Snakes Preview – Gameplay Summary

The special highlight in the Build-up Survival Game Above Snakes is that the world is neither procedurally generated nor premade, but we as the player can build our world on our own. For this purpose, we gradually receive card pieces, like in a board game, which we can add to our existing world in order to expand it. Whether next door a forest arises, a lake invites us to fish or we can mine ores there, we thus decide that ourselves at least partially.

In addition, the game is about building strategy, base building, and survival from an isometric perspective. In addition, there’s crafting, cooking, farming, resource gathering, and stockpiling. And of course, there are all kinds of dangers lurking in the surrounding tile-based areas. Besides wild animals and those “normal” threats, there is also a mysterious danger called “Lost Souls” after a meteorite crash.
