The Wild Eight - is about survival.
That survival, that we deserve. Everything gonna kill you: cold, starving, animals, and so on, like in the other survival games. But there are some differences: wolf not gonna die only because you a main character, and animals really dangerous.
Craft system depends on building, that you could move any time, but its showing, that you should stay, make a camp with a bonfire and rest.
So game represents surviving on other point of view: you cant just run and run, ignoring difficulties: you should survive smart.
Good looking low-poly graphics style & soft pleasant music will add a bit of comfort to your room, while you playing. Recommended to play in winter with cup of your favorite warm drink.

Its a ton of fun. The locations are all really interesting, makes exploration very exciting. Its an overall very well made survival game. Everything in it is simply put, awesome, I love the style. The story might be a bit generic, but it definitely has its own awesome creativity which kept me well invested. Gives off some Long Dark vibes, which I really liked. The camera control could be WAY better, but you get very used to it, so also a no problem. Has a very good skills upgrades system. And yeah, an overall recommended.
The only real con I can think of are the bugs, there's a lot of them and quite a few are very annoying. Fortunately there are no game breaking bugs that I ran into. Examples:
• Your reindeer not visually following you and only teleporting around, in a VERY glitchy manner.
• Being able to lock yourself to the outside of the ENTRANCE-2 emergency transit system, so that the only exit is through the transit to a different location just to go back there and open the door from the outside so its open again.
• Falling down somewhere and losing all your items due to them not spawning above ground.
• The map from time to time shows icons for quests that you already completed.
Etc.
Another con is definitely the halt of support on the game back in ~2019. There's quite a few features/ideas that the game could use, a few examples that popped in my head:
• The reindeer is an amazing feature, I love it, owning a pet reindeer who follows you around while expanding your on-go storage with the sledge, HOWEVER, to maintain the reindeer is way too needy, its realistic, yes, but the frequency of when you have to feed him is way too high.
• You should 100% be able to place chests down in your Bunker.
• Imo its kinda disappointing that you can't open the door to the Main Reactor room due to an "unknown error", I'd really like to get in there as well and everywhere else in the game, that "unknown error" is always fixed when you restart the systems, why not make it like that in your own Bunker as well?
• The dumpster in the Bunker should 100% be times and times bigger, I can only really use it to store actual valuable items, it doesn't have enough room to throw away actual useless junk like rot or ruined/spoiled food.
• I feel like there could be quite a few more achievements, one that came in mind for example was an achievement for activating all radio stations.
Etc.

Such a cozy survival, I really like this game. I played solo and every time I died from the wolf. I think it's even more fun and easier with friends. Recommend

After picking this game up and trying it repeatedly before I found my groove, I've 100%'d this game. My final run was about 20 hours. This includes getting the "live 200 days" achievement, which was largely me standing afk in my base.
A really fun, simple survival game. Health, Cold, and hunger are your things to manage. I thought it was really clever and interesting that your progression is tracked not only by your player's skills but your buildings as well. Your tent's progress unlocks more skill tiers for your character, your crafting building unlocks better tools, armors, and weapons. Not only do you upgrade your personal buildings (which you can set up and tear down whenever you want them, wherever you want them), but there's a central base, the HUB, that also has unlockables, including an automated garden, a skill training room, and a fast travel system where you unlock more spots to travel to.
Oh and there are 8 different characters to pick, they each have different passive bonuses. A little unique but lategame it'll make no difference.
Combat is simple enough, basic ranged and melee combat. There are a few ideas like traps and pets but it all feels very basic, which is fine. The writing's nothing amazing but that's not what we play these games for right? Small mini side quests tell stories with a few journals and oh look there's the monster we've all been eaten by good luck!
My biggest critique is there's a very early on quest that encourages you to follow some power lines. They lead you to an abandoned building inhabited by a monster you will literally not encounter again until lategame. It is brutal and no equipment a new player would have found would be any match for it. If the goal was to teach the players about impermanence (death results in you dropping all your things and your skill/building progression reset), it does so, but also turned me off from the game repeatedly. Otherwise it's a really poorly executed side quest. Also not the game dev's fault but the wiki is very....barebones.
All in all, a good exploration survival game. Try it with your friends.
