Nature is brutal, but can you survive the Brutal Nature of man?

Home  How to play  Features  Modding  FAQ  The Future of Brutal Nature

Brutal nature is a multiplayer survival game with voxel based terrain to mine for resources, destroy with weapons and place to form structures. Featuring realistic natural environments and rich engaging combat, it blends PVP and PVE game play with resource gathering and detailed but easy to use crafting. For a list of currently supported features check out our information page.

The Landscape is a smooth voxel terrain that you can mine for resources, make caves, destroy with weapons, blow up with explosives and place to build structures up to thousands of feet in any direction. Build towers miles tall and mine far into the depths of the earth with our easy to use terrain editing controls.

Realism will be strived for but not allowed to stand in the way of fun. Game play will be tunable from highly realistic to arcade style fun by an easy to use modding system.

Inspired by Fallout, Terraria and Dwarf Fortress, We wish to bring you a game with complex depth and exciting combat in a modern age realistic world. We heavily support modding and have made the game exceptionally easy to mod. All vanilla content is essentially a mod that can be removed, edited or replaced.

Featuring a rich but easy to use crafting system with over 540 recipes you can craft just about anything in the game from ammo to any of the 80 weapons!

Brutal Nature is currently free to play while in alpha but development is supported entirely by pre-orders, So pre-order your copy today!
New versions are released every 2 to 4 weeks so come back frequently to check on our progress!

Take a look at Brutalnature.com for the basic info.

Can't really make a video on how to setup your router as each router is different. You will have to google your router model and 'port forward'

Should be working. Make sure UDP port 1235 is forwarded on your router.

PVP and PVE combat. very complex crafting system with built in game help. Terrain mining of a large number of ores and minerals used in the crafting system. its designed to allow cooperative or competitive play. You start with basic weapons (Pistol, Shotgun and Grapple gun) and can make new ammo, armor and weapons all the way up to modern military weapons once you advance enough.

Its a custom engine written from scratch in C++.

You wrote the engine from scratch? By yourself? That sure would take a lot of time. Very well done from what I can see! Congrats.

Thank you. And it has been a lot of work. Its a big reason why the graphics are not so great, I have to code all that stuff from scratch. But they are improving!

this game has brought me such joy as ive let my imagination run rampant; building primal homes, hunting to survive, friendship in fellow players and the craziest, in depth crafting system ive ever seen. all kinds of gun catagories, matching ammunition u build from scratch and armor ranging from light leather to ceramic. the user friendly and incredibly simple gameplay leads to great rewards. this game being in its early stages has me chomping at the bit wondering what the future has in store.
