Re: If you could combine two(or more) games

Ark: Survival Evolved plus Sea of Thieves in spaaaace. I've been wanting a new space game for a while, in the Elite Dangerous/Descent: Freespace style, but with some of the more fun (to me) elements of Ark: Survival Evolved. Not the dinosaurs, but in the base building and raiding, and the effectiven...

Float on a small raft in the ocean while a shark slowly destroys your home. Or, pick stuff out of the water and build a floating palace, you know, whichever you like.

More a prototype than a game, but there's enough for a few hours of fun.
