Dread Hunger Released

Dread Hunger has officially launched on Steam following an Early Access run for this social deduction game. The setting is an 1848 Arctic expedition that's become a quest for survival. There are eight players staving off starvation, the elements, and various other threats, but two of them are thralls working against the interests of the party. The Launch Trailer sets the chilly scene. Here are some details:
It’s up to each player in Dread Hunger to bring life to their chosen character through voice chat while completing objectives. The six Explorers must work together to gather resources to power the steam-powered sailing ship towards its destination while contending with the harsh climate. Meanwhile, Thralls plot to poison food, massacre crewmembers, blow holes in the ship, and invoke dark magic to undermine the mission—all while pretending to be loyal Explorers. Starvation, wolves, cannibal attacks, and other gruesome fates abound, and any misplaced trust can quickly lead to a knife in the back. When food is sparse, fellow crewmates appear more and more appetizing.

Game Key Features

  •  Survive the Arctic: Build fires to stay warm, fend off predators, and hunt for food to stay alive in the unforgiving Canadian Arctic
