Picture a nature world untainted by civilization. Now, imagine the challenges that would arise trying to keep such habitat from collapsing. That’s exactly what you’ll have to face in Natural Instincts, a very unique game based on the values of nature preservation and exploration.
Featuring some rich visuals and a rewarding progression system, there’s a whole world to explore in Natural Instincts. Even though the game is still in early access, it already contains a myriad of features that set it apart from other games of its kind. Let’s take a look at what this game will look like when it finally releases later this year.
Learn to Survive
At its core, Natural Instincts is an in-depth nature simulator that represents the day-to-day reality of life in the European forests. Much like the Zoo Tycoon games, there’s an emphasis on lecturing players about the animal species featured in the game, providing valuable real-life information regarding their ecosystems and other pieces of info.
This all sounds well and good, but there’s probably a burning question in every player’s mind right now: what exactly do you do in this game? The answer is quite simple: you take care of every little aspect of life in the forest with the objective of creating a successful and balanced ecosystem.
Players will have to guide their animals through every step of survival, including teaching them what dangers to avoid. While predators and aggressive fauna might sound like the main source of peril in the world of Natural Instincts, humans must also be kept in check if you hope to survive. Roads, thrash, and other human elements are hidden dangers that can spell doom for your ecosystem.
Each animal has a story to tell in the world of Natural Instincts. Thanks to the game’s solid campaign mode, players will be able to explore the lives of a variety of species native to the European forests.
Through the campaign mode, players will contemplate the struggles for survival of deers, wolves, rabbits, or even wild boars. Each species features unique gameplay mechanics depending on its place in the food chain. For example, while deer must find green pastures to feed and breed, wolves have to form strong packs to hunt down unsuspecting prey.
Developer DreamStorm Studios delivers an impressively detailed world in Natural Instincts – a world that truly feels alive thanks to its powerful graphics engine. Every animal and piece of the scenery is beautifully rendered, with meticulous attention to detail when it comes to the flora and fauna of the European forests.
Textures are nice and detailed, and every soft shadow helps to make the world feel grander and more natural. The models of each animal species are also quite detailed, and the animation work done on them looks impressive. As a strategy game of sorts, Natural Instincts looks positively stunning. The commitment by the developers to show a rich ecosystem full of life and nature is commendable, making this a game that any nature lover will surely enjoy.
Natural Instincts is an entertaining life simulation game with a commendable idea of conservation at its core. The rich visuals and fascinating campaign mode offer players more than their money’s worth in terms of gameplay.
