A stand-alone, Mac OS X executable version of Wayward Beta 1.6. Max OS X 10.7+ is needed to run Wayward.
Wayward is a turn-based, top-down, wilderness survival roguelike currently in beta.
In Wayward, there is a large focus on simulation, survival and openness. There are no classes; there are no levels. Progression of your character depends on individual skill and stat gains by your interactions with items or objects in the world. You are free to play and explore the game in any fashion you wish.
Wayward is available for Windows, Mac, Linux, all modern web browsers and on most tablet/mobile devices via their corresponding web browsers.
Stylistically, Wayward hearkens to a 16-bit aesthetic in graphics and in sound. Game mechanics wise, the game is similar to the Ultima series, more specifically, Ultima Online, with inspiration from other roguelikes and roguelikelikes such as Dwarf Fortress and Minecraft.
Wayward will continue to grow, expand, and evolve over time to open up new modes of play, add depth and complexity, add content, and further refine the systems presented. In this public beta, you are free to come a long for the ride as we try to make this game a truly unique experience through our iteration and through your feedback.
Wayward has been greenlit on Steam! Thank you to everybody that helped this dream come true for Wayward. That’s good news. Even better news would be, say, the release of a new beta. Well, we have that for you too!
This has been one of the biggest releases to date in terms of improvements and fixes. Some of the coolest stuff form this beta includes:

RT @Worthless_Bums: Also it seems my recent lack of game dev progress due to real life issues seems to have been compensated by other devs …
