Game description

This is an Early Access Game

This means the game is still in active development, and can change drastically throughout development. The Early Access program will not only allow the player to enjoy the fantastic gameplay experience, but will also allow the player to make a real difference in how the game progresses.

The team will continue to create new features throughout the process. Those who choose to purchase the game should expect missing content, bugs, incomplete content and, potentially, game breaking problems.


The Other 99 is a single player, first-person, action-survival game. Ripped from your ordinary life you awaken on a desolate Hebridian island with nothing but a single note that reads, “The only way off the island is through The Other 99”

Described as a British Battle Royal, Lost meets Fight Club and digital Lord of the Flies. 

The Other 99 is a game of mystery, exploration, brutal combat, stealthing mechanics and problem solving. But be careful: Permadeath is included!

Current Features:

One objective. Alternate playing styles. Getting off the island is your main objective.

  • Survival of the fittest: Do what it takes to get off the island. Follow the cryptic note and butcher your way to freedom. Only thing is.. many of the other 99 have the same idea. 
  • Mind over matter: Keep focus and lurk amongst the bushes, tactically sabotaging camps and assassinating by the dead of night. 
  • Discovery: Let animals be animals. Watch from a distance and decipher the mysteries of the island. Maybe there is more to the island than meets the eye.

Dynamic AI system

  • Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not happening. Simulations are hard at work in the background determining how AI’s move, kill and survive. This effects the world you play in and provides unique situations every time. Campfires are lit because AI have actually visited them and bodies are there because they have died, the world lives around you.

Directional based combat

  • Button mashing will get you nowhere! Because attacks don’t use buttons. Combat is directional based, so use of analogue sticks or the mouse is required to determine the direction of your attacks. 
  • How you use your weapon actually matters. Why would you stab with an axe and swing with a shank?

Large open world environment to explore

  • Pick up a lit torch and discover the lore and extensive backstory of the island through rock engravings, notes and environmental story telling. 
  • Go where you please! Nothing is stopping you from walking to the other side of the playable area. Well.. Potentially 99 psychologically damaged murderous people.

Dynamic day-night cycle and ever changing weather system

  • Keep track of day and night cycles as this will change visibility on both you and the other 99. Lighting fires at night or running through open fields during the day are decisions you must make. 
  • Weather can be varied, rain blocking out the sound of footsteps and thunder illuminating the path ahead are elements you can use to your tactical advantage.

Hunger and thirst

  • Maintaining hunger and thirst doesn’t just keep you alive, it ensures you are strong for every encounter you face. 
  • Explore more efficiently by keeping well hydrated. 
  • Kill more efficiently by maintaining your nutrition.

Puzzle and problem solving

  • Solve perspective puzzles, collect components and decipher notes. These will lead to greater rewards and bring you closer to understanding what is happening on the island.

The only way out of the island is by passing 99 others!


About the graphics if we talk about its problems we can't say enough! Even with a powerful Rig, the Fps drops and the tearing are the ones that practically makes it impossible to experience the game. Given the fact that the game focuses on wondering in environment, the existence of these problems greatly affects the gameplay experience and makes the game more difficult to bear! Other stupid problems in artistic arts part of the game graphics are the same modeling of all characters. There are a lot of white and bald men who are alike, and even this lack of attention of the creators sometimes resembles an insult to the players' intelligence.

Battle Royal style single player survival game


The Other 99 is yet another action survival game that has launched in early access, will it do anything to stand out and better itself from the crowd of other recent titles in the genre? The focus of the game is somewhat like Battle Royal where you are forced into an environment and will end up fighting other people who share the same fate in order to survive, similar to another recent multiplayer title The Culling, but this is a single player game with permadeath. You have to manage your hunger and thirst along with your health. Graphics are better than many of these titles, there are better character models and noticeable damage on their models if you get into a fight with them. The 98 other characters can also end up fighting and killing each other without you getting involved and you have a little wrist device that shows you how many people are left. The game released in a very poor state with problems with combat and performance, these were improved as bit over time but the game is still in an early state. It might turn out to be decent but with the current state and for the price it is difficult to recommend, even when compared to similar titles.
