PixARK is an open world survival game, which means that the goal is not to let your character suffer a silly death, but rather endure as long as possible under adverse conditions. The game features mechanics seen in ARK: Survival Evolved while offering a vast world made completely out of voxels, which to some extent, looks familiar to that depicted in Minecraft. The game world is easy to modify, the players can build structures and craft items shaping the word around them quite freely.
The diversity and freedom also characterize the gameplay in general. It is possible to customize your character’s appearance and skills. Regardless whether you want to fly on a dragon and cast spells with a magic wand, or ride a huge T-Rex and eliminate your enemies with a rocket launcher, you can do all this and more in PixARK.
PixARK offers either a solo or a multiplayer experience via the online multiplayer mode.
PixARK features very unique, highly stylized 3D graphics that definitely won’t please everyone. The world looks like it was made of LEGO bricks: it’s blocky and full of vibrant colors. Nonetheless, Snail Games managed to achieve an interesting visual style that gives the graphics a particular charm.
