IndieSpotlight: Outpost Zero Hands-On Impressions

Outpost Zero is a multi-player survival game that is currently in early access on steam. This game has some of the same qualities as most survival games out there, but also has its own original characteristics. The basics are all here; such as base building, a character leveling system, mining, and defending your home bases from certain monsters and enemies around the map. Some of the things that make this game original were that certain monsters appear on the map for you or your friends to slay and earn certain items in-game. World events also bring interest in the game such as acid rain or meteor showers that could damage you or your base and in certain situations your armor.

The base building mechanics in the game are very fluid and easy to understand. The crafting menu doesn’t provide a lot of building types, but that is understandable for an early access version. Making bases can be unique but have a lot of the same turn-outs on bases and take a little imagination. It’s much more bearable to build more bases instead of just one massive one. Colonies are unique in their own way and involve teaming up with friends to take on the wasteland. In my opinion this is a better player experience for players of this game to focus on.

The deeper you go in this game, the harder the difficulty; such as having to slay more ferocious creatures and maneuver through rougher and rougher terrain. Some of the materials in the game appear to be in nodes with a small amount of health to each node meaning it’s usually harder to find the more rare materials, having to fight off many things to just get them.This can lead to quite the hassle at times in regard to getting materials together to build with.
