This game gets a User Score of 6.8 on Metacritic, and a Mostly Positive review from players in the Steam store (74% of the 182 user reviews are positive).

Relationships between characters evolve! They can argue, become friends and even lovers.
Research & Craft to upgrade your camp.
Deep RPG system running behind the scenes: the efficiency of every action is tied to character skill, opinions and the state of the character.
Exploration: 100 map areas to discover, each with its own rewards… or traps!

You can grab the game for free for a limited time period on EA’s Origin store here. If you don’t have an Origin account, just create one, it’s free. And as with the other On the House freebies, once you claim the game, you can download and play it whenever you want, even when the game goes back to its original price on Origin. If you’re a fan of survival/management games, don’t miss out.
