Before promises a world of danger and beauty

Facepunch Studios reveals upcoming survival game, Before.


Before there were zombies and nuclear wars there was just... well Before.

Bill Lowe took the stage tonight at The Game Awards to show off his upcoming title "Before", a survival game based way back in the day when cavemen ran wild and massive Wooly Mammoths roamed the world. Created by Lowe, the title is being published by Facepunch Studios (the team behind Garry's Mod), and hasn't been given a solid release date yet.

Players will need to guide their tribe through the challenges and dangers of a pre-historic world, working together to survive and build up their tribe and survive the harsh world they've been thrown into.

Be sure to keep an eye on the game over at

      Been seeing screenshots of this posted to @BeforeGame on twitter ... I don't have much idea of what the game will be like, but I dig the look. Obviously small teams have reasons to gravitate to low-detail visuals, but it's all good when they can manage to be stylish, readable, and evocative.
