About the Game:

 

You find yourself on an island, starting from scratch while trying to survive. Players will interact with smart and complete AI to claim resources and expand building capabilities. Eventually, there will be extensive quests and a storyboard system offering players new achievements and features.

In Hold Your Own, it’s easier to find food and water, but AI is harder to kill and come after you. Fans of survival games will have fun building their base, quests, hunting, and explore the islands.  Post launch, the priority will be to implement multiplayer systems.
