UAYEB is a solo story driven adventure / survival / puzzle game, placed in an open world of 16km2, with the immersive First Person view.

Is UAYEB a survival sanbox?Not at all. The survival parts are only here to push the difficulty of the adventure, like it would be in real life.
There is no dinosaurs and no zombies!

Is the story important in this game?Yes, the game is driven by a story that will go through out the four episodes.
Not much is said so far on the story, to let the surprise when playing it. Only the starting point has been revealed.

Who is UAYEB?The main character of the game is not a hero, he is just a normal guy.
Uayeb is a game developer... well actually he was in his past life!
As he is now lost in a forgotten world where nature gets back its rights.

Uayeb wasn't some gruff super soldier or some sort of assassin, he was a geeky, fun and quirky guy who loved video games and developed them for a living.
How is he going to survive when he is thrown into a post apocalyptic world?

You as Uayeb, will explore and survive in a hostile environment, you will find clues helped by your friend archeologist Joanna, to discover Mayan artifacts that will lead you to the lost civilisation, you will craft your equipment to be ready for the adventure!

Uayeb is a Mayan name, easy to pronounce Ua---Yeb!
It means the last five days of the Mayan calendar, which are known as Unlucky days!

Game details:- Amazing adventure placed in an open world
- Immersive First Person view with a minimum of HUD
- Unique storytelling within the Mayan civilization
- Survive, adventure, investigation, puzzles, weapons, vehicles, are part of Uayeb world
- 4 different maps are planned through the whole story

Episode 1: The dry land
Episode 2: The jungle
Episode 3: The Mayan site
Episode 4: The new world

Nothing in UAYEB will be shown with a big arrow.
You will have to think by yourself to know where to go, and to solve puzzles you'll be helped by Joanna's clues that she will put somewhere in the world.

Drink, eat, sleep, cold and hot places, stamina, heal, batteries, weapons and ammunition.
Avoid deadly traps, stay alive in underwater caves, jump on moving Mayan platforms, don't touch swords traps that arise from ground.

Explore a vast world with desert and dune sand, forests and water falls, beaches and a lost city, and find clues that will lead you to Mayan artifacts.

Find blueprints and collect resources to build up your own equipment.

Defend yourself against hostile survivors with three different fire weapons and melee moves.

There will be 20 artifacts to find to finish the game. Each artifact will be a level specific with traps, platforms, puzzles and enemies.
You will need to find the 20 clues to be able to reach the artifacts.

Joanna your archeologist friend will send you the locations of the clues during the adventure.

To find the Mayans artifacts you will encounter moving platforms, unstable parts or planks, swords traps, balls with spikes falling, other deadly mechanisms, sulfur sprays that will project you in the air and few more surprises!

Time in game:Like the real world, the time in Uayeb will turn around 24 hours.
1 hour in real life is like around 2h30 in game.
You can sleep at any time (if you have a bed), to rest and pass the time faster.

Length:Episode 1 will be at least 20 to 30 hours of gameplay depending of you skills. It could even take you more time as you can live and explore the world without restriction, as long as you eat and drink.

Release date:UAYEB Episode 1 will be released in Q2 2017.
