    The potential gold mine that is Survival Horror


    When we think of genres we think of Shooters, Racing, Arcade and so on, but there are other genres that haven't really found any footing yet on XBOX.

    I think the Survival Horror genre is a good example.

    Yes, we have Dayz & HUNT, but I want to cover a game that is unique from those despite it being in the same genre.

    I'm talking about 7 Days To Die.

    A Creative "Build Yourself" Horror Survival, taking a familiar feature of mining and building and throwing it into the world of zombie survival.

    This idea was so good and had me playing hours upon hours despite it struggling to average 30fps and was riddled with bugs. I wasn't the only one either, a loyal fanbase was quickly created ready and willing to support the devs through thick and thin to get
    this game off the ground.

    Unfortunately, this game didn't receive as many updates as it's PC counterpart.

    The frustrating thing is, that this genre could do very well, in fact, I'm willing to bet
    extremely well.

    I am honestly surprised we are not seeing more of this type of game, had 7DTD been more refined it could have easily brought in enough money to fund itself in further development.

    It really does surprise me how other studios arent trying to get their foot into this genre paving the way for a new type of game.

    What are your thoughts? Has the demise of 7DTD on Xbox scared off other studios trying the same idea?

    Personally I believe the game itself was using the wrong engine, had it been more refined and less unstable there's no reason why it couldn't have drawn in more and more fans over time.

    :)

    I can only assume that any devs/publishers in that genre tend to either assume or find more of an audience on the PC than the Xbox.

    But I definitely agree it could work well - especially considering how many people will be outgrowing trying to do survival challenges in Minecraft etc, and would enjoy something either more teen, or proper mature horror themed...

    I love nay horror game on my box. Last Re 2 and Re 7 were amazing. Similar is with this game. I think that these games have a solid base on Xbox.
