In the vast and treacherous realm of survival games, there are those that rise to fame and others that dwell in the shadows. Enshrouded, an RPG-infused survival game, unfortunately launched in the shadow of the viral sensation, Palworld. However, that hasn't stopped Enshrouded from carving its own path to success. Just four days after its Early Access launch, the game hit a staggering milestone of 1 million players. Talk about finding your own spotlight!
The team at Keen Games, the developers behind Enshrouded, expressed their awe and gratitude for the game's success in a heartfelt Steam post. "We are completely blown away by its success and the overwhelmingly positive reception," they wrote. "From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank all our players. We're excited to let you know that this is just the beginning for Enshrouded." Indeed, with its Early Access journey scheduled to span a year, this is only the start of their grand adventure.
The Keen team wasted no time and promptly got back to work, tirelessly crafting the next update for Enshrouded. In their message, they expressed their gratitude to the players who sent in suggestions, feedback, and reports of encountered issues. The community's support is driving the team to create something truly special with Enshrouded, and they are well on their way to making it happen.
Now, let's talk about the changes the community is clamoring for. At the top of the list is a modification to the quest progression system, where one player on a 16-player server can advance quests for everyone, even those who are offline. It seems some players have been seeking a greater challenge in the game, as certain parts of the world offer little in the way of actual threats. Survival enthusiasts want to feel the adrenaline rush of danger lurking around every corner.
With 13,598 user reviews on Steam and a "very positive" rating of 84%, Enshrouded is basking in the glow of player appreciation. But perhaps the most astonishing detail is that Enshrouded is Keen Games' second foray into this genre. Their previous release, Portal Knights, a delightful sandbox action RPG from 2017, garnered a substantial following. Yet, in just four days, Enshrouded has gathered almost as many Steam reviews as Portal Knights, and with an even higher overall score. Talk about an impressive feat!
Ah, the trials and tribulations of survival in Enshrouded. Picture this: a dedicated player, three hours deep into manually mining out their basement, only to discover that there's a tool that could have done the job in an instant. The frustration and simultaneous amusement that accompany such realizations are an integral part of the survival experience. It's a testament to the depth and complexity of Enshrouded's gameplay mechanics.
As the adventure continues to unfold in Enshrouded, we can't help but be captivated by its journey from the shadow of Palworld. The game's rapid rise to popularity, the dedication of the development team, and the passionate community that supports it all contribute to its allure. Enshrouded is not just a survival RPG; it's a testament to the resilience and creativity of indie game developers. So, grab your virtual survival gear, brave adventurers, and step into the immersive world of Enshrouded. The challenges await, and the triumphs will be all the more rewarding.
