Osiris: New Dawn
Steam is densely populated with survival games, but Osiris: New Dawn puts a grounded sci-fi spin on the formula popularized by games like Rust and DayZ. Rather than fighting zombies, Osiris sees you battling alien creatures as a near-future space explorer who's crash landed on a colorful but inhospitable planet. You must build a base, craft items, construct vehicles, weather storms, and yes, blast aliens if you hope to survive. You can go it alone or choose to partner with friends online to brave your new world together.
Osiris has actually been available through Steam Early Access since last September, but thanks to a steady stream of updates, Osiris may be worth your time now more than ever. And according to the devs, there's plenty more to come: the team plans on adding new visual effects, deeper narrative elements (including real-time cinematics), raid-like dungeons, craftable space stations, and even an entirely new planet, all within the next year. Perhaps it's time you made space for Osiris. -- Scott Butterworth
