UnReal World for PC / Windows is a roguelike survival RPG. The development studio called Enormous Elk is composed of just two people – Sami Maaranen and Erkka Lehmus. These two are responsible for this project which has been developed for 26 years before the official release.


The action of UnReal World takes place during the late Iron Age in Far North – the land of today’s Finland. Since it’s a roguelike life simulator, there is no plot – you are given full freedom when it comes to shaping the fate and career of the hero.


UnReal World released on PC / Windows is a roguelike RPG concentrating on elements of survival. The game depicts the way people lived during the Iron Age. You can choose one of nine cultures for you character and the choice affects the hero’s potential and knowledge of the world. The game does not limit the character’s actions in any way – you can be a fisherman, a lone wolf avoiding other people, an adventure seeker, a hunter, a trapper, a tradesman, or you can combine different aspects of different professions. The authors have put an emphasis on realism, both in gameplay and the historical reality. While travelling through randomly generated lands, your priority is to survive. During play you can e.g. track wild game, set traps, hunt, skin animals, trade in villages, craft objects, and build temporary or permanent shelters. The game utilises a skill-based system that includes hundreds of skills. Combat, however, is turn-based and offers a high level of tactical complexity. Interestingly, there is no life bar. Instead, the game simulates wounds and injuries, starting with bruises and ending with broken bones – all of this affects the hero’s behaviour. Moreover, UnReal World offers a high level of realism – the script responsible for the procedural generation of this world makes sure that it is filled with realistic quantity and diversity of animals and plants.
