Grand Emprise, a highly anticipated survival game, is set to launch on Steam on July 27, 2023. This game, developed by a solo creator, has already garnered over 140,000 wishlist additions on Steam, thanks to its unique blend of various gaming elements. It combines the survival aspects of games like Ark and Rust with the space adventuring of Astroneer and No Man’s Sky.
A Journey Through Time and Space
The game’s recent trailer reveals an intriguing journey that takes players into space. However, Grand Emprise offers much more, starting with a man riding a dinosaur across tropical islands. Players can explore deep caverns filled with stone ruins, build luxury riverside huts, and even navigate rivers and sand dunes at incredible speeds. The game promises a mix of exploration, adventure, and survival in a variety of settings.
Diverse Challenges and Wildlife
Grand Emprise is about survival against various dangers. From crocodiles to eldritch sand worms, players will face numerous challenges. The game also features a range of wildlife, including dinosaurs and elephants, adding to the game’s diverse ecosystem.
A Solo Developer’s Vision
The game’s developer has intentionally kept each time period short to maintain excitement, similar to games like It Takes Two and Spore. Grand Emprise is a single-player game, estimated to take around 12-25 hours to complete. Despite being built largely out of assets from the Unreal store, the game promises a fun and engaging adventure.
