The Culling Announced - Join the Mayhem on Steam Early Access March 8th
Cumming, Georgia – February 3, 2016/ Xaviant today invites you to come on down to get some sunshine and fight for your life, announcing their most merciless game ever - The Culling, landing on Steam Early Access on March 8, 2016.
Jump into a remote island paradise and join a 16-player battle for supremacy as you explore, scavenge items, craft weapons, and build traps that will enable you to slay your fellow contestants and emerge victorious before the end of the round.
Only with cunning, skill and a little luck will you be able to prevail and survive the deadly game of life and death that is The Culling.
“I asked a small, talented team to come up with their dream game and gave them the autonomy to build it,” said Michael McMain, Founder and CEO of Xaviant. “The Culling is the result of that effort. It has been the highlight of my career!”
Unlike add-on modes in open-world survival games, The Culling redefines the battle royale genre by providing a tightly focused stand-alone experience that delivers incredible thrills and a competitive arena for players to duke it out. Only one will be crowned the winner. Do you have the guts to survive?
What bothers me most is it truly is creating gambling habits in small kids that also play these games (27 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: exactly, it’s nothing short of predatory. It’s literally using reasearch about the chemical reactions of the human brain to get people to spend more money than they want to (28 minutes ago)
They want you spending hundreds amassing a room full of dollar store garbage while you search out a t-shirt that actually looks like it wasnt designed by a monkey, (42 minutes ago)
I don't like lootcrate/nerd block for the same reasons. Yes you MIGHT get something cool, but that glimmer of hope is exactly what those companies are exploiting. (43 minutes ago)
But obviously thats just a single pay ent pirchase. Pubs want you spending weekly unlocking content you might not not even want or need. (44 minutes ago)
@Nietzsche: i agree. There os no justifiable reason to have the randomised element of loot boxes. The stuff should just be avalible in a store and you pay for what you want. (46 minutes ago)
but I do think overwatch does it in a much less harmful way than most others (2 Hours ago)
