Dread Hunger is out today on the PC via Steam. This game combines survival gameplay with being socially devious. Indie game studio Digital Confectioners have been working on Dread Hunger for a while now. It's a multiplayer game that takes players on a deadly voyage.

The game is out now on Steam for a regular price of $29.99 (USD) with an additional 20% launch discount for this first week.

Players embark on an 1840s Arctic exploration voyage where the eight Explorers depend on each other for survival. Oh, but two of them are Thralls that are trying to sabotage the mission. The game was conceived by creator director Alex Quick, who previously worked on games like Killing Floor, Maneater, and Depth.

In its Early Access phase, Dread Hunger earned an 86% positive user score on Steam.

It’s up to each player in Dread Hunger to bring life to their chosen character through voice chat while completing objectives. The six Explorers must work together to gather resources to power the steam-powered sailing ship towards its destination while contending with the harsh climate.
Meanwhile, Thralls plot to poison food, massacre crewmembers, blow holes in the ship, and invoke dark magic to undermine the mission—all while pretending to be loyal Explorers. Starvation, wolves, cannibal attacks, and other gruesome fates abound, and any misplaced trust can quickly lead to a knife in the back. When food is sparse, fellow crewmates appear more and more appetizing.

Game Key Features
  • Survive the Arctic: Build fires to stay warm, fend off predators, and hunt for food to stay alive in the unforgiving Canadian Arctic
  • Betray Your Friends: Feed them tainted food, lure animals to attack them, hex them with blood magic, or if all else fails… shoot them in the back and blame someone else
  • Roleplay Your Character: Add flavor and personality to your character by using integrated voice chat and your in-game actions. Play as the Captain, Navigator, Engineer, Cook, Doctor, Chaplain, Royal Marine, Hunter, or Engineer, all equipped with a unique starting kit and passive ability.
  • You Are What You Eat: In the Arctic, you must make grim choices to stay fed; butcher bodies and use the pieces as weapons—or food
  • Captain a Ship: Steer a 19th-century warship around (or into) icebergs and find coal for the ever-hungry boiler to keep the ship moving... or blow it up
  • Brave a Perilous World: Plan around a full day and night cycle while trying to outrun a massive blizzard that looms over the expedition
  • New Armory Secondary Crew Objective: The Armory can provide powerful weapons to Explorers or Thralls, depending on who manages to unlock it first
