Survival games like Palworld are already making waves in the genre in 2024. More are just waiting to be unleashed as the year advances. Among them is To the Star, developed by Covenant.dev. The name could convince anyone into thinking it is something like No Man’s Sky or Starfield, but there’s a twist. It’s not about space exploration, but star exploration, where players will unravel the mystery of a fallen star.

In the grand scheme of things, the game adds a cooking element, which is something not usually included in these games. Minecraft is one of the popular titles that allows players to cook and satiate the hunger of pixelated avatars. Now, To the Star is entering this arena, and cooking mechanics will be among the first things noticed in the game.

To The Star Players Will Carry Their Base With Them

The environment of the game is inspired by Alice in Wonderland, where players can craft items in the Briefbase dimension, engage in battles with mystical creatures, and do whatever it takes to survive on the fallen star.

Interestingly, cooking in-game isn’t only there to provide much-needed energy to explore the environment. A dish is also a weapon, which can be thrown at the enemies.

Base-building is another thing to notice, and it is not like the one players experienced in Fortnite. The character in the game carries a briefcase, which can be considered a cousin to the one Newt Scamander from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them carries throughout New York City. The only difference is that it’s not a portable realm, but a portal to a private dimension.

Palworld Will Not be an Easy Nut to Crack

Palworld will be among its major competitions.

The developers are determined to integrate community feedback into the game, for which they have released an FAQ saying:

We’re keen on integrating player feedback and ideas into the project from the get-go. The earlier we start, the more we will be able to modify.

We want to invite survival adventure players to co-create this game with us by engaging in feature discussions, regular surveys, AMAs, and more.

To embrace the community’s creativity, the game will feature comprehensive mod support, allowing them the control to shape its ever evolving world.

Additionally, there will be a co-op mode supporting up to four concurrent players, if a user wants to explore the world with their tribe.

Palworld, or as the game is popularly referred to, ‘Pokémon with guns,’ has already sold millions of copies across the globe, and will certainly be a competitor for the title. It even left leading games like Call of Duty and Elden Ring behind in terms of concurrent players according to the Steam Charts. Beating a game like this would certainly require a developer to go the extra mile.

However, its domination was recently challenged by Helldivers 2 as it topped the sales on gaming distribution service Steam. But it still is among the most played games with 429K concurrent players active at the time of writing. At the top remains Counter-Strike 2, with 733K active players in-game.
