Wayward Wiki

Wayward is a turn-based, top-down, wilderness survival roguelike currently in beta.

In Wayward, there is a large focus on simulation, survival and openness. There are no classes; there are no levels. Progression of your character depends on individual skill and stat gains by your interactions with items or objects in the world. You are free to play and explore the game in any fashion you wish.

Wayward is available for Windows, Mac, Linux, all modern web browsers and on most tablet/mobile devices via their corresponding web browsers.

Stylistically, Wayward hearkens to a 16-bit aesthetic in graphics and in sound. Game mechanics wise, the game is similar to the Ultima series, more specifically, Ultima Online, with inspiration from other roguelikes and roguelikelikes such as Dwarf Fortress and Minecraft.

Wayward will continue to grow, expand, and evolve over time to open up new modes of play, add depth and complexity, add content, and further refine the systems presented. In this public beta, you are free to come a long for the ride as we try to make this game a truly unique experience through our iteration and through your feedback.
