It’s always nice to find a game extremely worth playing that you least expect. However today I have one to bring to your attention a much underrated gem. The name of the game is Dysmantle and I stumbled across it by accident as a free PlayStation Plus game. Furthermore, it is available on all consoles and PC so you should be able to play it. Though no doubt a lot of you are hearing about this game for the first time. So what can we tell you about the game by 10tons.

DYSMANTLE

Dysmantle is set in a post-apocalyptic world and features RPG elements. However, it also offers a survival crafting experience. As the player you can dismantle pretty much every object you find. The more you level up and upgrade gear the more you can literally destroy. The world that remains is full of monsters and the further you progress the tougher the monsters faced. Additionally, it ties in with how you can upgrade your gear so you’re never underwhelmed. An example of the opening minutes of the game, captured on PlayStation 5 is shown below.

Now For The Dysmantle Game Features

The official website goes into more depth on the aspects of the game.

And eventually… When it’s time to say goodbye… Find the means of escaping the island.

Never Starve

You will not be fighting just to maintain the status quo. This IS NOT a game about starving. You won’t be constantly looking for a tasty cockroach to fill your over-metabolic stomach while waiting for the unavoidable bliss that is death. You will never die of hunger. You will get more powerful and unlock permanent upgrades. The world is a dangerous place, and you may take a few steps back once in a while, but eventually, you will thrive. And you will enjoy it.

DYSMANTLE

So how have I found the game? Well, I have virtually played nothing else since I stumbled across this. I have come close to 60 hours of game time in the past week. Yes, the gameplay is repetitive but it also feels relaxing. However, I appreciate this game is not for everyone. Though if you have a PlayStation Plus subscription it is free on the Extra tier. Certainly, this game caught me by surprise, and will be looking into what the DLC offers. Furthermore, it adds to the weight, not all top games need to be AAA blockbusters. For example, Stardew Valley is another game I feel deserves more recognition. This game I feel is the same and it’s a thought shared elsewhere.
