Contest: We’re inviting 10 players to try and survive the insane world of SCUM

Tell the tooth fairy to piss off

Inspired no doubt by the reality show taking place in the prison which the world has become for most of us, developer Gampires and publisher Devolver Digital have joined forces to unleash the unhinged survival title SCUM, launching on Steam Early Access today. Already a massive hit despite just being launched, the lunatics behind the title want you to join in on the fight and test your mettle against the other prisoners doomed to compete for our entertainment.

Think you’ve got what it takes to keep your teeth?

From the developers:

The world’s unquenchable need for entertainment has turned towards bloodlust as entertainment behemoth TEC1 is set to premiere season two of its television sensation SCUM. This new season moves the contest from the rugged, enclosed indoor arenas to the lush forests, rolling fields, and rugged terrains of TEC1’’s own private SCUM Island. Both fan favorites and new prisoners will clash in a ruthless war of survival while battling for the support of viewers, producers, and corporate sponsors for fame, gifts, and a chance of life after death.

SCUM aims to evolve the multiplayer open world survival game with unprecedented levels of character customization, control and progression, where knowledge and skills are the ultimate weapons for long-term survival. Combining the methodical planning and management of hardcore survival with optional PvP ‘network events’ available to everyone at anytime, SCUM strikes a unique balance between complex simulation and intense action in the next generation of survival game. 

To win your key for the game, comment below with what crime you committed to be sentenced to SCUM Island. Back in middle school I peed on my principal’s door handle in the parking lot during gym, which apparently has no statute of limitations. So 20 years later, here I am on SCUM. Karma is funny like that, sometimes.

Our 10 winners will be randomly drawn on Friday, August 31 — that’s soon, folks! Get your entries in now. And make sure you comment from a Dtoid account that has your current email address on file. If I can’t email you, I can’t send you to your death on a reality TV show. Wait, isn’t that line supposed to be enticing?

SCUM is available today on Steam Early Access.
