Survivalist Games has changed its name to Yondernauts Games. This change of name is part of a wider branding update to reflect both a change of direction for the company, and also changes to the wider gaming landscape.
It’s an exciting time here at Yondernauts Games. The old plan is out the window and a new plan that brings us much closer to our original goals is in place. With that in mind, Survivalist Games was starting to feel like a poor fit.
Survivalism is about the struggle to survive and to carve out a place for yourself in a hostile and unforgiving world. To be honest, there were times where the first years of the company did feel that way, and it really did take the fun out of development. Alongside that, the survivalist theme falls on the wrong side of a societal divide that has grown exponentially this last few years and has been keenly felt in the gaming world.
Because of these changes, I felt that the company needed a new identity: something positive, which looks outward. Yondernauts Games embodies that aim. It represents the quest for adventure and escape to new horizons. For me, games aren’t about surviving against the odds (though I do enjoy games like that). They’re about being taken to places you couldn’t or wouldn’t be able to visit in real life. They’re about experiencing things that are different and seeing things from a whole new perspective. I’m excited to share that journey with you.
