Devolver’s multiplayer prison survival gameshow Scum launches on Steam Early Access in August
Devolver’s Scum (not the 1979 Ray Winstone film) will launch on Steam Early Access this August.
Scum is an online multiplayer survival game set in a brutal and bizarre open world where prisoners fight for the amusement of spectators, making them contestants and stars of a sort. As with Hunger Games, your prowess will attract sponsors, who’ll give powerful gifts, and you can even be resurrected by the show’s producers if you die.
Scum’s boasts a eye-opening amount of character customisation and progression, and even goes so far as to track your nourishment and metabolic rate. Check out a few of the developer diaries so far.
Scum is made by Croatian team Gamepires with the help of Serious Sam developer Croteam. It’s powered by Unreal Engine 4.
