CryoFall is a sort-of-pixely take on the scavenge-and-survive genre that features building, farming, survival, and even PvP. It’s been in Early Access since April of 2019, but after two long years it’s finally getting an official launch on April 29, 2021.

For non-players, here is a lengthy list of features from a recent press release:

  • Complex crafting and industry, including oil refining and lithium extraction.
  • Technology progression through the ages: primitive, industrial, modern, futuristic, sci-fi.
  • Farming with crop growth simulation, fertilizers, irrigation, etc. & diverse cooking options – also: fishing.
