On October 27, 2013 Roam, the company behind the Kickstarter funded project of the same name, accused 505 Games of stealing their game. Roam is also a survival game with zombies and crafting. What ticked Roam off is that 505 Games contacted them for publishing, were declined and shortly after announced How to Survive.

However, the next day they backpedaled and apologized. Monster Island (the working title of How to Survive) was in development long before the kickstarter campaign.
