Open World Survival Horror ‘Vorax’ Reveals New Gameplay, Roadmap

VoraxVorax, the indie survival crafting horror game by Italian developers IndieGala, showed off some haunting new gameplay of their Resident Evil-inspired take on Sons of the Forest in their latest trailer released today.

In the trailer, we can see game mechanics such as the ability to barricade doors with wooden planks, in an effort to fight off the countless creatures, which clearly want more than just a hug. We can also see a whole variety of what’s in store in the enemy department of Vorax. The regular old zombie variant aside, there was a huge, bulging eyeball staring right at you, with a host of arms or tentacles going in all directions.

  • Defend Your Shelter: Sometimes hiding is the only option, but if the infected find you, you’ll want to have a sturdy base to defend yourself. Gather materials, board up your entrances, craft traps, and hope your hard work pays off.
  • Craft to Survive: An abandoned island means many resources for you to collect. Gather everything because you never know what could be of use. Craft weapons and tools, materials to heal yourself, barriers and traps for your base, and more.
  • Kill the Infected: The more you explore the island, the more types of infected you’ll uncover. You’ll need to be quick to analyze how to take each one down or which ones are better left alone.
  • Explore the Island: This Mediterranean island contains diverse locations from abandoned homes to sewers and caves. Each location offers loot and resources as well as many enemies to take down.
