Want to catch some sun? Swim in the sea? Get eaten by a shark person? Build up a floating home to relax on? Perfect, then Last Wood by Gamera Games is for you. You control two survivors as they try to survive a harsh new world now engulfed by the waves. Don’t forget your sunscreen.
Ever played Raft? If you have then you’ll know a lot about this game. You survive the open seas by expanding your raft, go on little excursions on smaller rafts, fight monsters that threaten you and your partner, the person who saved you from the sea, and try to repopulate earth. You essentially start a colony on a raft and expand it as much as possible with all the amenities you could need.
Lots of exploration and combat and crafting but there are only a few pockets of land left on the world, you have to do all of this from the safety of your raft. You grow trees on it for wood, you live, sleep and hunt on it. You may encounter other items in the sea that you can snatch up that will speed up your growth. Progress as much as possible, design your raft however you want it to be. There’s a lot of fun to be had in this game and I had a really great time playing it. A fair bit of clicking throughout and a bit of a learning curve at the start but once you’re passed that you’ll have a great time overcoming nature and exploring the post apocalypse.
As you travel throughout the world you will meet more and more interesting characters who, alongside discovering items and the few remaining landmasses, will talk of the Earth that was. It’s up to you to save what is left of humanity and to discover what happened to it last time.
I personally really enjoy games like this; it teases you with some awful knowledge, makes you feel like you’re the first person to uncover this terrible truth about a tragedy long past. All of that wrapped up in a cute game like this makes for great depth but doesn’t smother you with one thing or the other.
Last Wood has a great art style, there are times it looks downright like a mobile game but it is actually quite good. The colours pop with vibrancy and the water always looks so nice. It’s a cute style that doesn’t require a whole lot of detail to convey what it wants to but a little more flexibility to the movement might not have hurt; it looks very rigid.
Although the game is cute, it’s got a lot of work before its ready to be a full release title. If you enjoy games like this with crafting and survival exploration elements then you’ll love Last Wood.
