Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are looking for player feedback to get the best out of the game.
The games core features are in a state where we are confident it can be enjoyed not only by ourselves. The game contains a unique blend of different game systems and mechanics and we have many more ideas for future development. However, we would like to know what the players want in order to set the focus for moving forward.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning to release the game in the next year (2018).”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Our rough list of future tasks looks like the following:
  • Much more content (e.g. enemy types, event types, skins, upgrade categories)
  • Character leveling combined with a talent system
  • Achievements
  • Trading cards
  • Adding more languages
  • Polishing

However: It is also based on your feedback, since we want to build a great product together with you.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable, however in terms of content, polish and progression it is definitely a WIP.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“During early access we are reducing the price by about 40%. We know this is quite high, but that is our way to thank the players who will provide us feedback.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We'll collect the feedback, rank it and if it fits our plans, implement it. We'll try to keep the community updated about this process (dev log style).”

Day 7: Follow me! (Update 0.9.11)

Hi survivors,

today we release our next patch with some new features and several bug fixes.

Leader tactic
Many players requested a permanent grouping functionality. Now it is possible to let your survivors stick together in very dangerous situations.
The tactic tab now contains a “assign leader” ability. You can mark one of your survivors as a leader and others will try to stay near him. They still fight and loot but will make sure to always catch up to the leader. But be aware that they’ll collect less resources since they don’t spread out to scavenge.

Target indicators
We often received feedback that the behavior of the survivors is confusing and hard to follow. To help with this problem we added target indicators which will always show their next target. Furthermore the indicator will be colored red if they intend to fight an enemy. With this you can predict movement and actions much better and hopefully keep your survivors alive for a longer time. If you do not like the target indicators you can turn them off in the settings.

Furthermore we made the following changes:
  • Added: Sounds when scavenging cars and bins
  • Added: Experimental support for 21:9 ultrawide screens
  • Improved: Character movement should be a bit more direct now
  • Improved: You can now zoom out more (thus seeing more from the whole map)
  • Improved: Dropping weapons check if loot is beneath (so no more weapon drops on scrap / parts).
  • Improved: We increased the range of the sounds so you can hear them even with high zoom out.
  • Improved: Improved accuracy of prioritize enemy and back to base ability (now the entity nearest to your click gets the effect, instead of a random one).
  • Balance: Kills caused by the level up blast no longer give experience to the character.
  • Fixed: The camera can’t be moved via keyboard anymore when locked to base
  • Fixed: Several sprite overlays were now correctly aligned to the map (Map freeze, flash and nuke)
  • Fixed: The truck konvoi event was not time scaled thus being too slow when fast forwarding.
  • Fixed: The unlock cost of fitness area and fire are no longer 0.
  • Fixed: Time scale is now reset when game is over.
  • Fixed: In some cases the tactic bar could break which is now fixed.
  • Fixed: Leaderboard display in game over screen should be working again.
  • Removed: Daily bonus

Day 6: Into the shadows (Update 0.9.10)


we just released the next major patch.

Special tasks
Sometimes you wish you could do more with your survivors? Now you can. During the night you have the opportunity to send them to special tasks. This could be raiding a shopping mall or go scout out a hospital. Sending one or more survivors means surviving without them for the duration of the mission but they come back with plenty of loot. But be careful some missions are dangerous and your survivors could even die. So prepare and send strong survivors to maximize your chances.

Please note that the slot machine got removed. At the same position you can find the special tasks now. We are re-evaluating the slot machine for future use.

Some of you (and we too) felt that there was a need to adjust the style of the game a tiny bit. It needed more contrast and depth. Therefore we added shadows to most of the ingame sprites plus a movement of them according to the progress of the day.

Fast forward
We have also included a much requested feature to accelerate the time during the days. Now if you find yourself in a day that is far too easy for you, you can speed right trough it. You'll find respective options in the bottom right corner of the screen now.

Other changes
  • Added: In-game option to switch to windowed mode
  • Improved: When playing in windowed mode the game will not pause when you leave focus. So playing while doing something else works perfectly now.
  • Improved: Buttons to buy tokens are "holdable" now so you can quickly buy a ton of tokens.
  • Improved: The reward screen directly skips to the summary if there is just one reward in the reward bundle.
  • Removed: Slot machine.
  • Fixed: Camera scrolling speed by mouse behaves correctly now

We really like to thank everyone who gave feedback and still appreciate any comment and steam review you leave us! Tell us what you think about the new additions. If you like join us at Discord:

If nothing helps anymore, just start a nuclear strike.

‣ Let your survivors level up and gain talents

‣ Discover many powerful special abilities to boost your arsenal

Shortly before the start of the apocalypse, the fast food chain MKing launched a new burger product on the market. Addictive additives were secretly added to the meat in order to boost sales. The plan worked out. However, the addictive drug meant that all brain areas were shut down over time, except for the area which is responsible for the basic need for fresh meat. Lots of meat! As if that were not bad enough, this disease also leads to the fact that the people affected cannot die naturally. A high level of force is necessary.
