Solution: 

I. Reinstall the game. Delete the Survarium folder from the user directory -> Documents -> Survarium, the full path: C:\Users\<username>\Documents\survarium\.

II. If My Documents folder (working directory of the user) was transferred (usually from SSD to a hard drive), then follow these instructions:

  • Run the registry, open Start menu -> type regedit and press Enter.
  • In the registry, find this thread: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders]
  • Find and change Personal parameter to My Documents current path.

Survarium is a free2play MMOFPS game set in the near future. The game focuses on the aftermath of a massive ecological catastrophe on Earth, the reasons behind which are only vaguely known.

Impassable woods advance onto cities from every side, as maddened animals and birds attack industrial complexes, military structures, warehouses and power-plants. Strange plants and mushrooms grow through concrete and steel. Scientists all over the world haplessly try to cope with the anomaly expanding with terrifying speed across the planet. Countries collapse; anarchy spreads throughout the world. Now force dictates who can survive.

The game is developed with new proprietary Vostok Engine technology.
