Fly on a dragonfly and fight spiders

What is the gameplay like? Smalland: Survive the Wilds offers a large open world that you discover from a completely different perspective: puddles become lakes, trees soar to vanishing heights.


You can tame insects to jump around on a grasshopper or fly through the air on the back of a dragonfly. However, you will also encounter hostile animals that you must fight. Spiders, ants and cockroaches are among your opponents.

Next to it you build a shelter that you can decorate individually. To do this, collect resources such as leaves, twigs or stones in the area and craft material and equipment.

You can build armor to customize your appearance and gain specific abilities. For example, you can use grappling hooks or wings to move faster.


Smalland: Survive the Wilds features online co-op in addition to the single player elements, so you can fight together with friends in the fight for survival in miniature format.

How do players rate Smalland: Survive the Wilds? The game is already doing very well in Early Access on Steam. However, it must be noted that there are not many reviews of the game yet. Of the 432 player votes, 82% are good (as of March 30, 2023, via Steam).

The attention to detail, the graphics and the general atmosphere of the survival game are often praised.

  • TNL Holy: “Mixed ARK and Grounded! We recommend! Classic survival that kills you every few meters in the beginning, but once you get in it gradually becomes more relaxed. Should know if you play Survival! Nice graphics, few bugs. Good early access! #Gönnjamin”
  • JaxThe Unknown: “The game is just gorgeous and full of tiny details that other games don’t even consider. With a variety of insects already in play. With more it will only get better […]“.
  • Komanche: “A very good and lovingly designed survival game”.

Negative comments mainly criticize technical problems and some think that the game still feels a bit unfinished at the moment.

How much is Smalland: Survive the Wilds? There is currently a 10% introductory discount on the release of the survival game. Instead of €24.99, you pay a little less at €22.49 (as of March 20, 2023).
