Nation Red trading cards, wallpapers,badges and emoticons live!

January 23rd, 2014

Hello everyone,

Well after being flooded with requests to add Nation Red Steam trading cards (thanks for the pms, emails as well!), I have created a set of cards, wallpapers, badges, and emoticons, which yesterday I sent to Valve for approval.

After making some small changes they have set the cards live on Steam a few hours ago :)

There are 7 cards, 6 badges (1 foil), 5 wallpapers and 5 emoticons.

Hope you enjoy them!

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.
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.

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.

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.

Nation Red is an addictive 'twin stick' (or keyboard and mouse) shooter with a zombie aesthetic. However, as realistic as the weapons and characters may lead you to believe, you'll soon be summoning clones with shotguns, calling down orbital lasers and splitting the Earth in two with a wide variety of power ups and perks fuelled by your killing spree.

Nation Red has a wide variety of maps and modes for players to try, ranging from no-perks single player to a holdout mode with four players desperately defending an encampment of minigun weapon stations from an ever increasing horde. For what's more or less a one-man-band project, Nation Red has grown massively since its 2009 release and continues to do so even now, with new achievements, maps and perks being added at somewhat irregular, but extremely welcome, intervals.

Average Game Length? Depending on skill, games can range from a few minutes to over an hour.

A Bit Like? Crimsonland, Smash TV

Is It Fun? The perks make this game beyond entertaining, and four-player modes add a chaotic atmosphere like few others.

Worth The Price? £7.99 may seem a bit steep for those looking at the screenshots and video, however playing the game is completely different and provided you like other similar games, you will certainly get your money's worth.

A well polished and developer-supported top down zombie shooter, with 4 player classes, a large variety of weaponry and maps with dozens of unique and fun pickups and perks. The gun play is satisfying across free play, barricade and campaign style missions, while the zombies are varied and well animated with several boss types that require unique tactics.

Whether you play in solo or in COOP modes, the mindless and relentless action will keep you going for hours, which is a good thing if you are pursuing the game's achievements, with a particular one requiring a cool million kills! Highly recommended 4.5/5

This game is very addictive casual zombie themed shooter-survival game. Basically you just need to try to stay alive as long as possible. To help you survive you have many perks to choose from that give you new skills, bonuses etc. and of course you have a great collection of weapons to choose from.

You can play it single or multiplayer and you always find games to join so this game is really much alive and doing great and is great fun to play whetever you play it alone or with friends.

Also if you are into achviements this game has a lot of em to achieve and a few of em are really rare if you like to collect those.
