SSSteinMan has registered their disagreement about the genres applied to this game
I would include Survival. It has hunger, thirst, and warmth meter that needed to be replenished in order to prevent death and has crafting elements as well.

It also has Roguelike elements like permadeath and some environments are randomly generated but I wouldn't include it in Roguelite genre.

Genres: Dungeon Crawler, Survival

The team has discussed this and feels like it doesn't quite fall into Survival. It seems like a weird inbetween of both Roguelite and Survival, among other things. So, we're leaving it as Dungeon Crawler.

Wow, really. shock

Most of my deaths came from hunger and thirst because of food and resources are scarce. The amount of constant feeding and drinking in this game is absurd.
It also does get cold the further down BELOW into the level that can affect the warmth meter and need to go nearby fire, eating hot meals like soup/broth or drinking potions to keep yourself warm.

Soup/broth/potions etc. can only make these by crafting and cooking via campfire.

This is a Survival game from start to finish.

Sorry for the slow response, I got lost somewhere.

In the case of your further explanation, we've added Survival to this game, so it's now Survival and Dungeon Crawler. Sorry about that! dive
