Battle Bugs and Build Bases in Smalland: Survive the Wilds for PC

Team up with other Smallfolk to tame insect mounts and survive the dangerous world.

It's fun to be tiny in a full-sized world, as proven by movies like Honey: I Shrunk the Kids and games like Microsoft's Grounded. Smalland: Survive the Wilds from Merge Games is an early access game for PC that casts players as tiny Smallfolk in a big, dangerous forest. The game supports up to 10-player online co-op, and the Steam and Epic versions can play together.

Smalland features:

  • Scale skyscraper sized trees, scramble through cavernous cracks in roads, and more as you experience the unique biomes of Smalland’s huge open world. 
  • Craft powerful armour sets to personalise your appearance, grant you resistance from the elements, abilities and more
  • Tame and ride wild creatures from Geckos to Spiders, the world and its inhabitants are yours to conquer 
  • Scavenge, refine and craft resources to build your encampment on the ground or in the canopy 
  • Claim a Great Tree to design and build a base that will follow you to any world 
  • Uncover ancient lore from hidden NPCs scattered throughout the world as you learn to survive in this hostile wilderness. 
  • Play solo or with up to 9 additional friends in multiplayer with crossplay between Steam and Epic Games Store 


The game's recent "The Giant's Fall" update adds a bunch of cool content:

  • Pyrite resource, Pyrite armor set, and Pyrite Greatsword featuring unique attack animations
  • Metal building tier with over 30 new construction pieces
  • Hornet mount, with new attack animations
  • Cosmetic vines, along with a decorative flower
  • A new enemy, the swarming colony spiders
  • A new gathering tool, the metal hatchet
  • A new body type
  • Two new story NPCs, the Historian and the Merchant
  • Catapults: talk to Nok to unlock the blueprint for this ingenious contraption that can hurl players, creatures and items across the map!

Survival games are not my thing - too time-consuming! Still, this one has already sold 200,000 copies, so it looks like a pretty big hit.

Smalland: Survive the Wilds sells for $24.99 on Steam and Epic. It is playable on Steam Deck but not fully optimized yet.
