Early Access Review: SCUM

Early Access Review: SCUM screenshot

Survival games aren’t usually my thing. They require a vast amount of dedication and engagement, with menial tasks that I’m not typically looking for when escaping to a digital world. SCUM, however, caught my eye with just how over the top its systems seem to be.

In SCUM, you play as a prisoner forced onto an island filled with other convicts forced to fight for the amusement of an audience watching from their televisions. On paper, it’s a pretty generic battle royale story, but the overwhelming amount of information thrown at you makes SCUM pretty unique. I don’t know many other games that keep track of how many teeth I have left.
