Archipelago; a 3X (sans "extermination") game, where you explore the new lands, hire the locals, harvest resources and meet your goals. It's semi-coop, as you try to prevent a general war of independence, but you compete separately. It's a thematic euro-game, that I appreciate much more than R. Crusoe.

Arctic Scavengers gives you a good survival feeling. It is a deck builder set in a post-apocalyptic (NON-zombie) world.

A different sort of "getting of the island" is included inAlcatraz: The Scapegoat. It also is an interesting twist on semi-coop games, as all BUT ONE player win the game! (The winners escape from the island prison, the looser is left behind)

I'd really like to find a game akin to "The Colony" from Discovery Channel - some non-zombie, or at least non-specific, post apocalyptic world where the players need to work together to build shelter, gather food and resources, defend said shelter, work to escape or thrive. So, I guess it seems I'd like a more modern take on Crusoe or Archipelago.

EDIT - I should add that I'm not looking for a deck builder, more worker placement...

Thematically, there is the good solitaire deck-building game Friday.

It looks like Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game puts more emphasis on Survival than most Zombie Survival games.

Really? No non-zombie, worker placement-esque, survival games? That makes me a sad gamer.
