A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

In Distant Lands you explore through different areas and landscapes, all while scavenging for items and tools, building camps & surviving. This is an open-world survival game where a lot is based on chance and randomness. How long can you survive? What will you encounter along the way? 

Distant Lands is a both a "clicker" game: where you click on different icons for different actions, and a "text-based" game: you can write text inputs to control the game and 'unlock' new actions. As of the beta version, the game is much more click-based than it is text-based.

It uses images, text & audio to display the world. This means that this game can be ran on most computers, on tablets* and in browsers.

* A tablet version is planned for the future.

The current available version is beta 1.0.

Some of the things you can do in the game include…

  • Collect and upgrade tools for defending yourself or collecting resources.
  • Explore different lands, weather and climates like cold taigas, dry deserts or plain fields.
  • Find and explore towns to buy items, do quests and travel.
  • Interact with traders and strangers. ( ..or don’t, it’s up to you.)
  • Craft a bow to hunt deer or use a fishing rod to fish.
  • Build camps for the night to craft items and vehicles, cook food and sleep.
  • Find dungeon caves and explore them for treasure.. but be prepared for what you might face!
  • Make a campfire & upgrade it to sleep better, cook food or upgrade your tools.
  • Collect up to 15 achievements!

Made with AppGameKit Studio.

If you prefer to play in-browser, you can do so here. This version is a little more experimental and buggy than the download version.
