There's a new survival game now available on Steam and it's one set in a post-apocalyptic world with cyberpunk influences. In Atrio: The Dark Wild, the goal is to survive at all costs by capturing and exploiting creatures and making the most of the environment. There are a lot of threats and challenges to face, which means players need to build, automate, and optimize their systems.

In the game, players take on the role of a nameless android tasked with making Station 3 operational again. For a chance to go out into the world and learn more about the situation, players need to build huge and efficient automation systems so that the base remains working. One way to do this is to look for creatures in the wild and catch them because each one captured plays a unique role in the assembly line.

Features of the game include:

  • Hand Crafted Open World
    • Explore a beautiful and unique world.
    • It's shaped by the contrast of sharp neon lights and darkness as players fight to turn the lights back on.
  • Witty Story
    • Learn the real reason why you've been sent to the surface through a witty narrative experience.
  • Sandbox Mode
    • A Sandbox mode is available where players can get creative in the safety of their own simulation.
  • Unique Creatures
    • Meet a roster of unexpected, half robot, half organic creatures.

System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-8250U
  • Memory: 2 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Intel HD
  • Storage: 4 GB available space

Atrio: The Dark Wild has been in early access for a year and a half. Since then, developer Isto has made tweaks to improve the game. One big change is the addition of the story mode which should take around 12 to 18 hours to finish. Other modifications for the story mode are:
