I've put in an insane amount of hours into the game and I'm still playing, because they keep creating content. At the moment, we're celebrating the game's 5th birthday with an Anniversary Event and a new map, Crystal Isles. Kill Party Dodos, get Cake Slices, cook them in a cooking pot, and you'll get a special pet chibi.
Yes, this is a survival game. If you get hurt, you'll heal, but you'll get hungry. However, there are plenty of things to eat, like berries you can easily harvest from plants. Can you survive in the environment with dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures? Go check it out! This opportunity is way too good to miss!
This isn't just a survival game, but it's also a crafting/building adventure game as well. You'll first need to punch a tree to get some wood and thatch (sound familiar?), then pick up some stones to craft a pick. Then, you'll want to use that on a bigger rock to get flint to craft a hatchet, which you'll want to use to get wood. It continues from there and goes on for quite a while. You don't have to do all your resource gathering by hand, though, as you can tame some creatures who specialize in getting certain resources. For example, the Ankylosaurus is used for gathering metal. Many creatures have their own special talent and there is a large variety of them.
This game was mostly designed for multiplayer, but I suggest playing in single player mode, that's just my preference. There are a variety of great mods to use as well. Feel free to find the game on Cheerful Ghost to see the posts I have made or just hit me up in the comments and let me know what you want to know. Beware, though, Ark is pretty graphically intense even at 5 years old.
