Despite some controversy, survival shooter SCUM is lighting the Steam charts on fire in the few weeks since its Early Access launch. It's already publisher Devolver Digital's biggest launch ever, selling 250,000 copies in its first day. Tens of thousands of players are blasting each other concurrently, but the game and its popularity seem to all have come out of nowhere. So what exactly is SCUM, and what do players find so compelling about it? That's what this article is for.
Are you ready for nonstop action that only gets better and harder the farther you progress in the game?

The bombastic action game is actually a shoot 'em up created in reverse, with its developers having coined the term "shoot 'em down." That means you'll be backing away as you get into back-to-back enemy shootouts, destroying the environment, and panicking as you try to survive.
