“To cap off our trilogy of zombie indie titles, this is easily the best one I've ever played. Enjoy it, it's fantastic.”

August 17, 1977
Scattered groups of zombies infiltrate remote Midwestern towns. Incapable of using tools or weapons, the invaders are resisted until they retreat back into the desert. Special elimination posses are set up to hunt down any of the surviving undead. Six weeks after the squads started their search-and-destroy mission, the last known zombie was shot and killed.
Present-day
Over thirty years had passed when a truck driver traveling down a desolate Arizona road plows into a wall of undead. Before the driver's phone signal went dead, he reported some were carrying guns... They're back and now they are hunting us.

You know what, I am one of those guys who's always skeptical no matter what until I've tried something myself. This gem was on sale, so I asked my mate if I should buy a 2 and send 1 to him, he's like its 3 bucks for 2, what've we got to lose, looks nice anyway. I bought this game when a few hours were left in the sale, and boy oh boy, do I LOVE it. Already got an hour of playtime on it on JUST the tutorial! :D

The music, the atmosphere, the weapons, the speed, the fast paced combat, the HUGE amount of traits you can level up! Making a repetitive and simple game attractive is something that not many games can achieve. This is NOT one of those games. This is an addiction.

Excellent game. Simple shooter, but quite subtle to handle, and more subtle again to master.
Has a few years, but can be considered a "big budget" version of a domain public game.

Excellent controls, speed, fun, good weapons, feedback, and the game actually rewards skills.
RPG-like since you can choose among permanent perks that help you through.

You die a lot, restart immediately to do better through training and leveling. Fun to replay so.

Funtastic.

Not only is Nation Red my favorite game, It offers a wealth of game play. From a brainless shooter game, to a hardcore tactical game, NR has it. Its a game that takes time to master, and as soon as you think you mastered it, theres more. From hours playing solo, to a epic coop game, the fun never ends. If you dont have this game, stop reading and go buy it now. If you have this game, what are you waiting for, go bloody the fences.

Thx

I can't fault this game for support, the devs are on the Steam forums daily checking for problems or keeping us up-to-date with what new features/changes are coming with the upcoming patch. It is the best supported indie game I've seen on the Steam forums!

The game is a top-down zombie shooter and fast-paced play but lots of fun too. I've put a lot of hours into this game and it never gets boring, the constant updates which include 4 player co-op, weapon upgrades, perk upgrades and new achievements. Keep the game fresh.

Nation Red is a really amazing zombie shooter game in third person perspective.

Pros:
+ nice design, different maps / locations
+ playable in singleplayer, coop, multiplayer
+ different modes (e. g. defending a barricade, survival, king oft he hill, free play)
+ convenient music, good sound
+ different survivors with special abilities
+ all options possible (graphic, audio and so on)
+ selectable level of difficulty
+ you can turn friendly fire on/off, collect exp together or alone
+ a ton of zombies and massive growing waves
+ many different weapons which you get by killing the zombies
+ health kits, short-term skills (also by killing zombies)
+ levelsystem (you can choose an ability with every new level)
+ players can resurrect teammates at any time
+ 140 achievements to hunt, leaderboards
+ IT MAKES FUN!

Cons:
- no story (in Singleplayer you have missions, but no profound story)

This game is for people who really enjoy using many different weapons, having action all the time, killing non stop zombies without thinking much and without a break. So hm I love the game. lol

Original price: 8,99 €
Summersale: 2,24 €

There is no one playing on multiplayer and is boring despite of all the game modes.

This game is definitely more fun with other people, but that's why Barricade Mode exists. You can collect achievements at any difficulty setting while Practice Mode is disabled. These settings usually make the game faster rather than harder, which means you can rack up your score at a greater speed. Every time you level up, you can pick whichever perk you want, which is nice. In addition to achievments, you can also level up your in-game profile by killing certain amounts of zombies until you kill one million of them and reach the highest rank, which is a good incentive to play it semi-casually. Overall, it's a good time waster.
