One of the most anticipated games among the Touch Arcade forums community is The Wild, from the two-person indie studio Toonuva Games in Vermont. The Wild is promising to be an original wilderness and zombie survival game in the style of Rust or DayZ for mobile. While Radiation Island [$2.99] has ensured that The Wild won't be the first to market in terms of bringing this popular PC genre to mobile, there's still plenty of folks hoping that this game could be the one for them. Toonuva has been running Testflight betas for the game, and they're about to submit a second one for their testers, and along with it, comes some improved visuals:

The Wild Update 2

The Wild is still going to be a mammoth undertaking for this small team, but it's certainly not an impossible bet to make a first-person survival game work on mobile. If the game intrigues you, there is a very active forum thread to check out that's been going on for months now. It may be worth keeping an eye on this one, if only because our forums are gonna go...wild...when it releases.

      Don't encourage him... I'm not sure this article could survive too many puns.

        I don't think there are too many that could apply here. He might need to scavenge a bit.

        Shouldn't it be "wildly anticipated"?

    Can't wait! iOS needs more survival games!

      Radiation island is what you are looking for.

        Yes Radation Island is pretty dam good i was going to add The Surviver rusty island to the list but was disappointed with it, there going to have to add more to that to compete with rad island.

    Im so looking forward to try this game! I've been playing Radiation Island since its release now, and I highly recommend trying it. Well worth the money in my opinion. I only hope The Wild will be as great as Radiation Island has been so far.

      You took my exact thoughts and typed them for me!

    Hey users I've been BetaTesting this app and it support 3+ iOS devices (don't know about 2cnd gen) what the testers have gotten to play around is the terrain and building. Even though no monsters have been implanted (since this beta is the first we test terrain and buildings for bugs) it's been a lot to mess around with. Can't wait for beta 2

    Radiation Island is great! and only increased my hunger for more survival games on iOS.

    i love the insane enthusiasm of these 2 developers and their commitment to the community.
