The wilderness calls you, and it demands you solve puzzles to claw your way back to safety. Dumb Ways to Survive is a spin-off of Dumb Ways to Die, the game series. Except now, they’ve flipped the script.

Netflix describes this new entry in the Dumb Ways to Die game series as such. “Dumb Ways to Survive is a silly and satisfying roguelike survival adventure game that will test your skills to see if you’ll die a dummy or use your smarts to survive. Working hard as a cute, hapless explorer Noob, players will collect, harvest and hunt their way through the wilderness as a bumbling bean trying to stay alive.”

Their reveal trailer is incredibly short, spanning just ten seconds, featuring the iconic tune of Dumb Ways to Die. It shows a family of five characters from the original PSA, one with angry eyebrows and a fresh layer of vomit on his face.

So far, what we know about this installment in the Dumb Ways to Die game series, it’s a single-player experience with both offline play and cloud saves.

We don’t like to speculate on how a game plays until public, verified gameplay footage and/or trailers have been revealed. Those who’ve played Dumb Ways to Die games can use their imagination to figure out how Dumb Ways to Survive will feel, from the gameplay to the UI.
