Procedural Open-World Survival Craft Game Under a Rock Announced

Announced at last week’s PC Gaming Show: Most Wanted, a mysterious and colorful island awaits with the release of Nordic Trolls and Gameforge 4D’s Under a Rock.

With support for up to 10 players, this island is filled with exotic creatures, oversized wildlife, countless secrets, and curious native denizens. As an early-nineteenth century explorer, players will be able to craft, build, harvest, farm, fish, explore, and even fight.

Players will also be able to build themselves the home of their dreams, with no limit on how expansive one’s abode can be. A character creator with a suite of customization options is also included.
