A New Entry
A story of survival is coming to next-gen Xbox consoles. Mixing genres between narrative and survival, a story of endurance in a post-apocalyptic wasteland awaits. Excitingly, TML-Studios has announced that their narrative-driven survival adventure game, Dead Man’s Diary, is coming to Xbox Series consoles this summer. Following a successful release on Steam last year, the game has undergone vast improvements with revisions from the development team including porting to the latest version of the Unreal Engine. A press release provides more details on the game, as well as, the console version.
Dead Man’s Diary invites players to a post-apocalyptic world torn apart by nuclear war. Blending genres, players will not only need to engage with a story of survival but actually ensure that they do survive. The player must craft, explore, solve puzzles, and survive in a hostile and deadly new world. Importantly, every piece of the player’s equipment is craftable and upgradeable. Yet, they don’t have an infinite amount of space. Resource management is a vital and constant aspect of the game. It’s also important to keep in mind that outside your bunker is a horrible, hostile, and hellish world.
Of course, the narrative of Dead Man’s Diary is told through diary entries made by the survivor. The survivor’s mind state as well as the deeper themes of the narrative are all conveyed in entries and soliloquies. Furthermore, players will discover more of these entries as they explore over fifty hours of gameplay in a struggle to survive the apocalypse.
Dead Man’s Diary is out now on Steam. The game will be releasing for Xbox Series consoles later this year.
