Developing a video game in the survival genre, like the "Conan Exiles," can be a hugely daunting task these days. It's a very crowded world with plenty of tough competitors on board. A good example is on Steam, where a large number of high-quality titles compete for players' attention and dollars.One effective way for a developer to distinguish themselves is by expanding their survival game with player progression, loot, and even the RPG systems.
The newly introduced survival game "Conan Exiles" is one big example of the latest challengers to the throne that gaming powerhouse Minecraft has first introduced. "Conan Exiles" pushes this kind of progression to the logical extreme, not only tying player's stats (the stamina, etc.) but also locking the majority of its buildings and tools behind it, thus giving "Conan Exiles" a unique gaming experience.
