Survive the Wild Early May Update

Hi all, sorry I’m a little late! So you guys have all gotten used to rather long and wordy blog posts with very detailed news as to exactly what’s been going on with every system in the game we are able to talk about. Unfortunately, there is so much going on right now that it would be unwise for the game’s release schedule to write such a post at this time. As such, I’ve got just a little something else here for everyone instead. You tell me, does the below make up for the lack of a long wordy post?



  • Hong Jun says:

  • Urh Štrakl says:

    Hell yeah man! I knew it, I fucking knew that something special will come out of this post. You guys deserve tuns of respect! I’m sure this long wait will be more than worth it! Keep it up folks!

  • SLJ says:

  • abbass says:

    I’m so glad the wait is over and we’re getting the big update. But I am also very worried because sam has spent a lot of time on this update and if there is a big problem, the quick reactions of the people of Jagan will be happy.
    good luck

  • Rishi says:

    yaeeeeeeeeeee! i was just trying to test my patience and almost started comparing myself as coyote, rofl. really so so so glad to hear that the release is just about to come. i was at the exam center when i was informed about it. so it was the right time to finish my exams. now i can again focus on my gaming. super excited to discover the new things. was really bored till i heard the news, had no games to play, just the exam kept me charged up a bit. good job guys, highly apriciated.

  • Keshav says:

    I am suuuuuper excited for this!.
    Btw can we only download the game when the beta surver comes onnline? I don’t currently have the game downloaded on my pc, so wish I could download the current version, and update to the beta version as soon as its out

  • Dawabsheh says:

    very good Sam, i hope it come very fast, i will do a party, good work, and good luck friend

  • Adam Råstrand says:

    Yeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I’m so excited, and i cant wait for the new stw uppdate! But, i asked myself som times, why was so imature and spammed the chats, i mean, that was so redicilous! roflflflf! But, anyways, can you tell me a top 10 or 20 big to moderate changes thats comming in the new uppdate, and also if stw will be available in other languages, specificaly swedish, and, o i’m gonna pk as usual to, and buy stw-credits for my friend and myself, but, with chatGPT and google-ai, i’m gonna ask it how to pk the best, and we’ll se what it coms up with, so, if you use chatGPT, try asking it.

  • Fisherman says:

  • Amalia Putri says:

  • Acer says:

    Hello sam. I don’t know if anything can be done about this, but the timer part of this doesn’t properly work in safari on iOS when using voiceover. I can move to it when the page loades, but only for a second or so because the numbers for the count down change.

  • abd alrhman says:

    Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart, I can’t wait to play this amazing game that I’ve never seen before

  • legendary says:

    thank god, finally my curiosity is going to be end. thank you so much sam and the team for this wonderful news.

  • jim pickens says:

    sam, this is worse than torture lmao, you shouldn’t have posted the timerhrhrhrhrhrhrhrhrhrhrhrthrhrhrhrh? now i can’t stop thinking about it, ffs, lmao but really, good job, loved what you could show on the audio demo a while back, truely amazing work.

  • Bravo says:

    Frankly speaking, I was never curious about STW.
    Either, I didn’t wait for this.
    If it comes, I’ll come.
    If it doesn’t come, So no pain at all.
    Because, I was not satisfied about their ministry. They must should have to stop keding with players by their technical issue.
    Because, I already lost near 200 dfc for this technical issue.
    So my mind doesn’t be curious like others.
    I know that, It’s not a post to discuss about it.
    By the way, Thanks to stw hole team to work hard.
    To try for bringing it out.
    See you in stw.

  • Dusko says:

    Hi, I’m so excited. I’m already counting down.2 days, 17 minutes, and 5 seconds, 4 seconds, 3 seconds, 2 seconds, 1 second. I can’t wait for it to get released. I’ll have so much fun. I wasn’t interested in travel before, but now I am, because every map has the different night sounds, so I’m going to spend a STW day in every map. I’m going to have so much fun, I’ll jump off the mountain into the pond, just kidding, spend an entire STW day hunting all kinds of animals, I’ll go to the fishing village, opening and closing doors in every building, leaving the doors open, and letting mutated wolves get into the buldings( if they’re smart enough to do that), I literaly feel like a 5 year old kid that just received his best birthday gift. And speaking of birthday gifts, I have a suggestion. Please make, that eather on account or character creation, you have to select your birth day. The month and the day, not the year. It doesn’t matter how old the people are. And every year when that day comes, that player can get unlimited gifts( paid characters), and 100 at a time( non payed characters). Of course, the non paid characters can collect their 100 gifts, open them and then collect more.
    And please add the coins on the spend points list for non paid characters. I know, that the non paid characters can buy less items with STW points, but please add the coins to the non paid character’s spend STW points list, because there is almost no way for non paid characters to get coins. All the caracters come with 50 coins, and once the non paid characters use that, there is no other way for them to get coins accept for asking someone to give them some. So Please add the coins to the non payed character’s spend points list.
    And wh I remember when you’re talking about NPCs. I thought a bit and I got an idea. Why not make an assistent human NPC. Players could buy them for about 2000 or 3000 STW credits, and they will assist players in what ever they need. They can’t talk, but they can use socials just like players. The owner of an assistent NPC can modify its inventory, put items in or take them out, dress or un dress their assistent NPC… And the assistent NPCs need to manage their biological needs just like players and other NPCS. When they aren’t doing a task that their owner has given them, they rest, wonder around the map and manage their biological needs in general.
    You give them a command by standing close to them and entering a say command for example: Jason. Please go to the camp ground, take 100 pieces of metal and bring the back here. Warning the owner player must have the map( in this example the camp ground) eunlocked on teheir ctrl+m map in order to refer to it, because the owner and the assistant NPC share the same map. And this was only one example. THe assistant human NPCs can do almost everything that the player can. You just have to give them a command in the right way.
    Next suggestion: Please make the teleporters work , so that instead of disappearing completele after used, they disintegrate like this. WHen you use the teleporter, it sends you as normal to the location, but instead of completely disappearing, it disintegrates into exactly 100 teleporter fragments. Those fragments get randomly scattered on every map that you have teleported through using the teleporter. The 100 teleporter fragments are divided by the number of of maps that the teleporter has travelled through, and the remaining value ( if any) is scattered all around the destination map. For example, if the teleporter had to teleport you through 20 maps to get you to your destination, 100 divided by 20 is 5 with no remaining value which means, that on every map that the teleporter has traveled through will be 5 teleporter fragments. To put the teleporter back together, you need to find 100 teleporter fragments. THe building proces works like building a shield. You combine teleporter fragment with teleporter fragment 50 times to get the 5 large teleporter fragments. You do that until you’re left with 2 teleporter halves. Combine them and you have a teleporter ready to be used again. I thought about reusable teleporters for a long time, but I didn’t find a way, to make them hard to reuse.
    And the last suggestion: Please make the time in STW flow at the same rate as in the real life, which means 1 minute in the game = 60 seconds = 1 minute in real life. I know that some players won’t like that, but if it’s not this way, the time scales are messed up.For examplem on the Survive the wild medallion, it says, that your stats will restore themselves every 2 weeks and you can wear it for 5 minutes. In STW time that is about 18 seconds every 21 hours. Does that mean that or actual 14 days in real life and that you can wear it for 300 seconds. THat is why I think that the time in the next version sould move at the same rate as in the real life. I know that this comment is realy long, but <I wanted to poast my suggestions before the public beta arrives. I will also post these suggestions on the game once it comes on line.

    • Sami says:

      Your suggestion about teleporter is just awesome

    • Ramon says:

      I found all this horrible, first that it would break the stw store that guarantees Sam money, and second that the real time would make some people in the world only able to play a night game, and their time will not be the same as the game, people would have to play at dawn or else they wouldn’t be able to play with STW while it was still daylight. in my opinion nothing is taken advantage of your suggestions, they only think of you forgetting that there are other people and that there is a programmer who depends on the game to raise money with the store.

      • Isabelle says:

        I agree with your comment, it can be clearly read that they are suggestions for the comfort of the user rather than thinking about improving a game

    “Zam, you’re great! I’m excited! Thank you for the update. I hope your health improves. Best wishes to you and your family as well. Your concern for us leaves me speechless. Working long hours for days on end is not easy, especially when it comes to programming a game that exceeds limits. That’s why I understand you even more. Without further ado, I’ll wait for the beta, because patience is worth it.”

  • jim pickens says:

Though I won’t be able to play right when it’s released because I need to work on the note for my graduation at university. I’m sure it’ll be a good way to celebrate when I finish. Thanks to all the teamm for the hard work and I hope to be in the game soon.

  • Storm says:

    Hey there! I’m so excited for the release of this game in just 17 hours! Even though I haven’t played it too much in the past, I’m really looking forward to seeing what new features and improvements have been added. I have a feeling that with the new engine, I’ll enjoy it even more and might even start playing it again.

    I just wanted to take a moment to congratulate you on the release of this game. It’s no small feat to create something like this, and I’m sure it’s been a lot of hard work. Sam, if you’re reading this, I just want to remind you that your health is more important than any game. I hope you’re taking care of yourself and recovering well from your recent surgery. We’ll all be here waiting for your amazing new release.

    Anyway, I can’t wait to dive into this game and see what it has in store. See you all on there!

  • buzreisi says:

    2 hours left, that’s cool! The following code can be added to the timer, for example,
    var countDownDate = new Date(“12 May 2023 16:00:00”).getTime();

    var x = setInterval(function() {

    now var = new Date().getTime();

    var distance = countDownDate – now;

    var days = Math.floor(distance / (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24));
    var hour = Math.floor((distance % (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24)) / (1000 * 60 * 60));
    var minutes = Math.floor((distance % (1000 * 60 * 60)) / (1000 * 60));
    var seconds = Math.floor((distance % (1000 * 60)) / 1000);

    document.getElementById(“countdown”).innerHTML = “Time left: ” + day + “day” + hour + “hour”
    + minute + “minute” + second + “second”;
    }, one thousand);
    function {
    window.location.href = “”;
    } redirects to the address and downloads the file

    • Sam says:

      Oh I didn’t see this comment until now, I was actually considering that and then just had too much to do to google how to do it, thanks for the tip about window.location.href that’s useful to know!
