What the developers say:
“Hello Survivors, old and new! Welcome to the apocalypse -- now on Steam! The Dead Linger is currently in Alpha stage and in active development. Check out our comprehensive Development Roadmap for the bigger picture! We're looking to release updates about once every 2 weeks, give or take, alongside dev vlogs to show you what's new and let you know we're listening. We've spent the past few months overhauling our engine for smoother gameplay and faster development. As the game is in Alpha, there are bugs, missing features, and a whole lot more. Just remember to visit our forums at Sandswept.net to participate in discussion and suggest feedback! You can also follow us on twitter @thedeadlinger!”Read more
