Welcome to the Make Your Own Survival Game blog! This blog is dedicated to anyone who wants to make their own survival game. If you have questions about how to make a survival game, this is the place for you.
Here you will find a collection of articles covering the different aspects of how to make your own survival game. Whether it’s making sense of what you want or how to start learning how to code, we’ve got you covered.
If you’re ready to get started making your own survival game, then let’s get started!
The first of this series, Make Your Own Survival Game: Part 1 – Gameplay, covered how the gameplay for my upcoming survival game works. This post will talk about the game engine I’ve used to make it and why I chose it.
Survival games are relatively simple in their design, but can still be fairly complex in their implementation. This means that you don’t need a high-end game engine to make one, but you do need something powerful and flexible enough to implement all of the features you want in your game.
I have chosen Unity3D as the engine for my survival game because it is one of the most popular engines and has a lot of support on many different platforms. It also has an asset store which contains useful tools that can be integrated into your project.
You can make your own survival game. There are a lot of projects out there that are open source, so you can look at their code and see how they work. You can also just start from scratch, and learn as you go. If you’re willing to take risks and do things the hard way, it is possible to make your own survival game without any help from others.
There are many different ways to approach this process, depending on what you want to achieve. Some people prefer starting with a simple project and building it up as they learn more about programming and game design. Others like going straight into making an ambitious game right away because they believe that’s the best way to get experience in both areas at once. And then there are those who start small but have big dreams for what their project could become someday!
The first thing you need when making a survival game is tools: either code or assets (art/music) from someone else’s project. There are several popular engines that come with their own development environments; Unity3D being one example of these types of engines while Unreal Engine has its own set of tools that can be downloaded separately if desired.”

The most basic way to stay alive in a survival game is through the use of food. Food grants you health, which can be lost through injury and hunger. In most survival games, food is a passive mechanic that simply gives you health over time. This is effective and simple, but also boring. Let’s make our survival game a little more interesting by adding some complexity to the way food works.
How much should eating food heal you? In Minecraft, apples heal a mere 2 hearts of damage. An entire steak will fully heal you if your health bar is at half capacity or lower, but only gives you three hearts if you’re already at full health. This type of system makes it so that different foods are useful for different situations; it allows players to feel clever and resourceful when they are able to recognize which foods are best for their current predicament.
As any gamer, I have my favorite genres in videogames. I love survival games, and what’s even better, I like crafting and building games. If you’re like me, you probably think: “I wish I could take these two genres and make one game out of them.”
If that’s the case, I have some good news for you. In this blog post we will learn how to make a survival game with crafting and building elements.
But before we start, let me tell you a little secret: It’s actually not that hard. If you know how to make a simple Survival game in Unity, adding crafting and building is just an extra feature on top of that.
In your survival game, you might want to add some kind of map or world where your player will move around in. But if you don’t know how to do that yet, don’t worry! It’s something we’ve already covered in another article. Take a look at our tutorial How To Make A Top-Down Survival Game: Part 1 – Building The World if this is the case – it will show you exactly how to set up your map and get your player moving around on it.
