Last Oasis Is The Most PC Game Imaginable

Last Oasis is an upcoming survival game where the world has stopped spinning, and everyone left alive has to “outrun the scorching sun in a massive Open World.”

It’s coming to Steam, of course, and the game’s trailer certainly ticks all the boxes for a game laser-targeted to the platform’s whims: It’s post-apocalyptic, there’s resource-gathering, there’s crafting, there’s loads of combat between bald men wearing rags:

And yet, I’m kinda into this. The wooden mechs look cool, and I love the premise, and how the game’s exploration and scavenging is tied into it:

After a cataclysmic event halted the Earth’s rotation, the planet was split into two extreme and deadly environments. Only a narrow band of space between the hot and cold halves of the planet has conditions that can support life. This band moves at the pace of the planet’s rotation around the Sun, and all life on Earth must migrate with it to survive.

You can sign up for a closed beta on the game’s Steam page.


    That sounds like a really cool way to keep adding new content. Just put it in the deadzone and let it gradually rotate into the playable area.

    As impractical as those wooden machines would be, they sure do look neat.
    However, that is a terrible - and almost illegible - logo. :|

      Those machines are based on real ones.
      By the power of google, the leg mechanism is called Jansen's Mechanism.

    I'm guessing the maps will pretty much be progressive random maps and you have to continually keep going forward to some degree? Sounds incredibly interesting.

    Be will people still be playing by the time it leaves open beta in 5 years time?

      And this is why I don't play these games anymore. There's an active playerbase for the first 6 months, then everyone goes back to playing whatever else they were playing before that. Almost none of these games last.

        Agree, I also find that if I pick them up in early access by the time I have "played" them and they are V 1.0 I no longer care to go back.
