About This Game

Survivor Squad is a Strategy Action game where you control a Squad of up to four survivors and guide them through a highly randomized world looking for supplies to aid you on your journey.

Scavenge for supplies in every corner of every building, craft your gear, pick your skills and loadout while keeping your Squad alive by covering every corner and moving as a group.

It is a game that encourages quick thinking and fast paced play since you need to pay attention to all of your squad mates. If you leave someone behind, chances are they will be pounced on and die. Move as a Squad and cover every corner.

Four game modes: Campaign, Survival, Death Lab and Multiplayer.

Features:
  • Top down 2D Strategy Action
  • Use Melee weapons to take down enemies silently or go guns blazing
  • Scavenge buildings for materials to craft your gear
  • Equip Gadgets to assist you in combat
  • Highly randomized world providing infinite possibilities
  • Capture Infected buildings and defend them from the horde
  • Several types of Special Infected that must be dealt with quickly
  • Rename your Survivors to have a more intense personal experience
  • Four game modes: Campaign, Survival, Death Lab and Multiplayer.

Gameplay:
Control your Squad with the mouse carefully planning where each Survivor goes to and where to look. The Survivors have a limited view range so it is vital to ensure you are looking where the infected will most likely come from.

Certain events require you to move around a building while fighting off a horde, you must keep a close eye on your squad or they will perish one by one.

Various types of Special Infected have abilities such as Blinding Powder or Acid Pool that encourage you to quickly move your Survivors while making sure they are never alone

In campaign mode you can capture infected buildings that generate resources but must be defended from horde invasions


Campaign:
Play through a highly randomized world following a simple storyline with unique events and a conclusion.

Survival:
Score based mode, go through as many randomly generated buildings as you can never looking back.

Death Lab:
Equip your Survivor Squad with a limited budget and take them through a collapsed Lab. Good micro management of your Squad is essential to your survival.

Multiplayer:
The new Multiplayer mode is a 1v1 scenario (Online/LAN) where one player controls the Survivors and another player controls the Infected. The Survivors must reach the extraction zone and the Infected must stop them by spawning various types of Infected around them. Will the survivors reach their extraction zone alive and well or will they be devoured along the way? It's up to you!

First impressions:

(optional let’s play footage)

I just played it for half an hour until finishing a third mission (I got really hungry and needed a break lol).

The graphics are really basic. But they work well enough it's not really a problem. The sound is good. But it would be better if your squad members didn't speak every time you gave them an order just so that if you spam instructions they spam you back you with their voices.

You do missions to clear locations on the world map. During missions you command your squad in real time to fight against hostile Zombies scattered throughout the area. You scavenge as much items and resources as possible and go back to base when the area is clear. The combat aspect of the game is cool. You need to position your squad members so that they are covering each other and all directions that Zombies might come from. There are regular Zombies and some 'special' Zombies which I have seen so far including a grabber and a spitter (basically the same as Left 4 Dead lol). You have to manage resources including food, fuel (used to transport your squad to locations) and materials for crafting items. I've only played for a short time so food and fuel management didn't really come into play for me.

I like how your squad members aren't completely stupid i.e. they only have line of sight in front of them, however they will turn around and defend themselves if Zombies get really close. Character's seem to occasionally have trouble with pathfinding e.g. getting stuck on objects. I'm not really a big fan of controlling multiple characters simultaneously in real time if you can't at least pause the game and give orders. But it's been okay so far. I like how the guys in your squad aim for the head to one hit kill the Zombies. One problem I had was when I cleared a building the mission didn't end. I was thinking the game was bugged out. Turned out there was another building on the other side of the map to clear. But the way to find places is to have your guys walk out into the fog of war. They can only see a few metre's out in front of them. Which is a bit ridiculous because you at least know that there is a building out there. An option to evacuate missions before completion would be nice.

I really liked the game. I like stuff like X-Com and games like it. I am really interested to see what multiplayer is like. It's not available in the demo. But it’s supposed to be a feature of the full game which does not appear to be released yet.

Strategy style mouse control (select players, right click to go where you want), doesn't really work for roaming zombies and trying to loot. The inventory system is difficult at best. Not worth the purchase.

Not really cause due to the fact that 1 its too easy. WHEN A person shoots and zombie growls it just marks an X on all the zombies makeing it Not even a challenge or horror to scout out Areas
For example

Your walking into this building and 2 zombies are at the front
you knife it but then it growls and then the others growl ANd it permendtly marks an X on all of them so For all we know there could be a zombie Behind the door your goin to open but You already know cause its PERM MARKED. Makeing it not Scary at all Nor challenging.

THE ONLY CHALLENGE THERE WOULD BE IS Fighting a hoard and there comeing from all sides and u know were cause they are marked. that would be the only challenge a bit Unless your team is already equiped with Assault rifles and pistols Not to mention Armor makeing ur entire team Juggernauts

Futher more there should be special Infected
Such as a Crawler that can fit in certain storages That could possible scare a person Or have it were One of ur teammates are infected or atleast put a 3% or 5% chance of guys being infected and the only way to stop it is the vaccine Or Something that Temporarily Slows it down

Other than that It is a good game for people Who dont wanna be scared and Are New to 3rd person Tatical Games.

Hello everyone, I have played through the demo and I am pleased to report that it is a pretty good game. I am a lover of all things Zombie and I will admit, it does remind me of some IOS game but I cannot remember the name of, but with a lot more added in. Considering my laptop is pretty crap anyway and I can still play this game, then I would utterly recommend it to anyone who loves a good old fashioned, against all odds survival, zombie game.
