Survive! Manages to Survive

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

Stronghold Games has announced that it has acquired the rights to reprint the classic Parker Brothers game Survive!. It is somewhat odd that this gem went out-of-print in the United States years ago, given that it has sold 1.5 million copies worldwide. If you haven’t heard of Survive!, players represent leaders trying to shepherd their people off a volcanic island about to erupt. The waters surrounding the island are teeming with whales, sharks, and even sea serpents. This is one of the most vicious little games I’ve ever played. The new version will be entitled Survive: Escape from Atlantis, and will receive direct input from the original designer, Julian Courtland-Smith. The game is scheduled currently for release in Q4 of 2010.
