The main gameplay for The Survivalists can be broken down into 4 main parts

Maybe you're the type of player that likes to build fancy new homes or maybe you're the type that prefers to live in shacks. Either way, you can find tons of building to do in The Survivalists. The best part is you can even build with your friends! Almost like playing Minecraft. You and 3 of your friends are castaways exploring new territories, hunting down loot on adventures, trading with others, and...literally surviving.

So there are these monkeys on the islands, right? Well, these monkeys can work for you! You can tame and train them to be builders, lumberjacks, maybe a soldier or two. Whatever interesting job you can think of. Best part is that the monkeys can even help you on raids. We'll explain raids in a bit. With the Mimic System, your monkeys are able to help out with any task you assign. But it will be important to manage how your monkeys live.

Do you want to make things so that you're able to survive? Well, we got you covered. All the resources on the island that you can collect are the key behind your ability to survive. You'll be able to make things like some delicious fruit smoothies to om nom nom, an axe to chop wood to build, or many other tools to live. While you're exploring, you'll even be able to find more recipes and ideas to build, craft, and discover new items.

Remember those raids we mentioned? Well here they are! Throughout all the various islands you can explore, you might find quite a few temples you can explore. You might even be able to leave with some pretty epic weapons and items. But it won't be easy at all. You'll have to fight some pretty angry people so you'll definitely have to prepare for these expeditions.
