DID YOU KNOW?
The first survival game ever made came out back in 1878? It was by developers, Pickering's Gaming Emporium and they called it, Where's My Pouch. In 1901, another developer tried their hand at survival games. It was Majesty's Entertaining Pursuits with the game, Well-Fed Alfred. The game was ill-received due to its persistent theme on cannibalism. EA bought the company and its team for other developmental purposes later on. The 1950s saw further British development with games such as Perchance Was That A Wolf? and Life Without Butter. It seemed like survival games were over save for an event that happened in 1998. Any company applying for a license to develop now had to produce one survival game. It did not matter what kind of survival game it was as long as developers made one within the three years.
One would argue that the rule was a tad bit archaic. If it wasn't for it though, then, we would not see the release of some amazing survival games throughout the years. From indie games like Terraria and Don't Starve. To AAA titles like DayZ and the State of Decay series. Multiplayer survival games have grown in popularity in recent years. Some of the most popular ones include Fortnite and Tom Clancy's The Division series. Survival games are here to stay and we have to thank that game law all those years ago.
