Game Information

Available on:PCJun 5, 2014

Developer: Phosphor Games Studio

Publisher: Nether Productions

Genres: Horror, Survival

Nether is a fast-paced survival game that forces you to make quick life-saving decisions in an unforgiving environment. In this post-apocalyptic urban world, death is waiting around every corner, at the top of high-rise buildings, and in the grasp of powerful teleporting creatures known as 'Nethers'. These creatures and the other players are real challenges to overcome, requiring tactical gameplay, awareness, stealth, and cooperation. To navigate this high-tension environment, you must use skill and cunning in order to scavenge, trade, craft or loot for food, weapons, supplies, and other resources necessary to stay alive in a desolate and dangerous city. Team up with other survivors and take advantage of group play, as a tribe, to complete treacherous world objectives, or play as a lone wolf in an attempt to endure the hostile environment. In the end you must decide whether to Prey or Pray.

Nether's dire world can be immersive, but glaring issues ranging from unbalanced mechanics to glitches prevent you from getting swept away.

Nether has a lot of potential to be a great game, but unfortunately it suffers from odd design choices that make the gameplay experience an exercise in repeat frustration. The addition of microtransactions and premium currency was an unfortunate decision to include in a game focused around the survival gameplay genere. Nether is difficult to recommend as a purchase as similar and better games are available to players.

All in all, Nether is a great time. It's a highly engaging and realized survival experience; something we need more of.

Nether is fun and entertaining, but slow in the beginning stages. Playing and surviving is easier if you stay out of combat at first. Stick to scavenging from the environment and finding useful resources you can trade for food and other items you need to survive. Stay out of sight and hide in the shadows.
