Came across SCUM the other day while scrolling through **, my first thought was what a unique game.

Then I see things like this

Anyone play(ed) it?

looks good, similar to like a DayZ? I guess...

I do want to play it... half tempted to get it.

That’s what first crossed my mind, it seems like what DayZ should be but it’s been slow progress there.

The SCUM developers seem to be rather fast from what I’ve read up but only time will tell.

Just looks like another clone, there's a dozen of them floating about now.
Like the rest if will run out of money & stop in a few months.

i'm also thinking of getting it, looks really good only been out for a couple of days 60k + people playing.

for only being out for a few days looks like it has alot of ****, looks better than other survival games.

It's a gold mine.

Clone a survival game. Make some changes. Release an unrealistic roadmap. And let the hype and the money flow. Hype will eventually vanish but you keep the moneys.

Yeah I', going to wait a while before buying this frankly. I've had enough disappointment in survival games.

It does look really good and imo what DayZ should have been from the start. Lol at needing to take a **** right as he goes to engage though, seems a tad unrealistic/annoying.

Considering the release was only a few days ago Scum is very good for what it is, an early access survival game. Definitely has a long way to go with netcode and server/client performance.

It's worth a go if you have friends that play for £15 though.

Also if you manage your food you're not gonna be taking shits mid-fight :lol

Pretty sure this exact sentence was said about every 'DayZ clone' thats come out the past couple of years.

The fact that DayZ has only recently gone from open alpha(lasting 4 years) to beta shows that they only care about milking it, and not actual development. That is assuming they even went through with it, i stopped following it years ago.

It had great potential, they just didn't develop it. Considering the money they made from it, they had no excuse either.

Indeed, hence why I'm not going to buy it. I'll just watch a few streamers play it through twitch instead.

To be sure, consequently for what reason I'm not going to get it. I'll simply watch a couple of streamers play it through jerk
