The themes for the game are Refugees and Generative.

Atlas of Survivors is a survival game featuring procedural 2D map generation where players explore the map as refugees trying to survive in a wasteland. They employ various resources they find on the map while under threat from bandits and hunger. 

The main mechanic of exploration is drawing a path on the map. Everytime you start the game, a new random 2D terrain is generated procedurally with random positions for enemies and resources. This way, the players will always experience a new journey for each game session. With our game's unique feeding mechanic, players will face a dillemma when it comes to the survival of refugees. Different refugees will have different amounts of health which will affect the distribution of food amongst themselves.
