"Everyone must believe in something. I believe I'll go canoeing." -Henry David Thoreau

I'm hoping to order some games in the near future and wanted to see if anyone has any recommendations for "wilderness adventure" themed games. (I'm thinking exploration, survival, hunting and foraging, etc.) In the past I've always looked for games with mechanics that I've enjoyed rather than theme, but I know that theme can also really enhances my enjoyment of a game. As a result, for the sake of this thread, I am not concerned with player numbers, game mechanics, time, etc. but only with the theme of the game.

Thanks.

Not so much about survival, but Candamir: The First Settlers is a Euro adventure game that allows you to explore the wilderness, hunt bears and wolves, pick up herbs and mushrooms, catch snakes and fulfill small quests.

Certainly covers the theme, but I think I'd only get this one if I found it for cheap at a garage sale.

Sounds awesome, but I'm a little scared of the bad reviews. Will also add this one to my potential list.

The post apocalypse theme on this one loses points for me.


Thanks for all the suggestions so far! Appreciated.

Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island is the game you are looming for. It is hard and you will die... a lot.

Not really survival, but definitely a good exploration game...Expedition: Northwest Passage.

It's not even out yet, and it's not even sure that it would hit retail, but The 7th Continent should meet your search criteria.

I would really love to play this one. It's probably too heavy for my friends, but worse case scenario I could always play solo. Will hopefully be adding this one to my collection one day.

Looks amazing, I wish it was available.
