Last Oasis may be one of the more unique post-apocalyptic games to hit the scene. Instead of a nuclear apocalypse or a zombie uprising, the end of the world (as we know it) happens in this game because the earth stops rotating on its axis but continues to orbit the sun. As the devs explain in their first video diary, this results in a swatch of livable land that keeps moving over time — and forces players to move with it using their mobile Walker platforms.
“As people play they are forced out of the map because it essentially goes offline. The server becomes decommissioned,” one dev explained. “Players have to move to the new maps that are habitable areas on the earth.”
This forced nomadic lifestyle is at the core of Last Oasis. As the devs explain it, not only will players have to keep on traveling, they’ll want to in order to find more resources for themselves and their clans. You can give the devlog a watch after the break.
