I'm looking for a game where each player runs their own party of adventurers, where the main struggle is just to survive.

I'm not looking for games where the primary goal is to acquire treasure or defeat a monster, but ones where the goal is simply to survive/escape the dangers on the board.

It could be either cooperative or competitive, doesn't matter to me.

Kind of abstractedly, and maybe not what you want, but the new Costa Rica could work.

May I suggest City of Horror this is a cut throat game trying to survive the zombie horde. Check out some game reviews on it first see if it is your cup of tea. As for me and my game group it's a lot of fun.

Bear Valley might be worth a play. I didn't enjoy it, but surviving is the goal of the game, albeit in the mechanical fashion of a race. In a similar vein, what about K2? It's only about making sure your guys get the highest and survive.

In that vein, Lifeboats. Though the thing you're trying to survive is mainly the other players.
