From Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe (1719), through television shows like Survivor and movies like Cast Away (2000), the idea of
someone being marooned in isolation, forced to survive through wits and the resourceful use of limited surroundings, has been
the subject of literally hundreds, if not thousands, of stories. Discovering how they survive and second-guessing decisions and
mistakes has long been good subject material for the adventurous and curious.
Survival: The Ultimate Challenge gives computer game players a chance to test survival skills in the wild without having to go
through the inconvenience, sunburn or bug bites of actually being marooned. In each of seven different 3D settings, you control a
brave band of stranded castaways through the difficulties of survival and rescue.
Game challenges are largely defined by each scenario's environmental settings, ranging from tropical wilderness to arctic
wasteland. Natural resources (plants, animals, fruit, and rocks), as well as supplies that may have washed up on the shore, are
utilized to give castaways sustenance, create shelters for protection from the elements, craft weapons and tools, and ultimately
build a means of escape, such as a signal fire or raft.
Castaways have specific characteristics used in accomplishing various game tasks. You must constantly monitor and address each
character's individual needs, ranging from the practical (such as food, water and sleep) to the social (maintaining each player's
"Hope" level for maximum productivity). The interface allows for independent control of each character, allowing you the ability
to coordinate each castaway's actions for the good of the group.
