About the game


The Wicked Days is a top-down shooter with rogue-like elements. You are one of the “participants'' in a secret government project.

    the legs - slow down the enemy;
    the hands - neutralize the enemy
  • Vehicles
    Find, repair and drive cars of various kinds.
  • Buildings with loot
    Most buildings in the game are not just for the sake of a beautiful facade. They can be entered and loot can be collected inside.
  • Playable characters
    Find and complete quests to expand your collection of playable characters. Including references to TV shows and action movies of the 90s.
  • Useful consumables
    Use first-aid kits, gobble up different pills, guzzle alcohol - use whatever you find to survive and succeed in the world of madness
  • Hearing and Noise
    Each character has its own hearing score and the amount of noise he emits. With the help of hearing, you can determine the direction of the enemy, its quantity and even quality. Without making any noise, you can try to avoid unnecessary battles and save ammunition.
  • Leveling
    Improve your character with found drugs or items that are added to the status. For example the epinephrine found will allow you to run faster for a while, and if you own a medical dropper this will prolong the effect.
  • Checkpoints
    Phone booths or just payphones on poles are scattered around the map. They ring when a player walks by for the first time. When the player approaches the payphone, all world progress is saved. After the death of the player, progress rolls back to the last checkpoint. In hardcore mode, the phones will serve to save and close the game.
  • Safehouses
    Inside the safehouse, the player will be able to find some useful loot and will have the ability to teleport between such houses. There will be a jacuzzi with a duck as a teleport point. Also, inside such houses after their activation, there can be no zombies or other enemies.

Longread Lore


It is the nineties

Somewhere in a backyard of a democratic country, in the middle of nowhere, a private organization named “Monsardo” has launched a research complex. And, of course, it has started to conduct experiments on the creation of biological weapons there. Everything is happening in the best traditions of such organisations: there are white tents everywhere, corn fields, airplanes with pesticides and people in chemical suits. One small mistake is enough. One time the pesticide gets sprayed over the civilian fields and this leads to a local biological disaster.

An old marine Marvin Prods gets caught in the center of the events, as well as his neighbor's granddaughter, Lilith De Buansche, who came to the place on vacation. The Old man never liked his neighbor, as well as people in general. But the laconic neighbor’s granddaughter was able to become the old man’s soul mate. She often helped him in the barn, looked after the greenhouse and loved to tinker with scrap in the old cabin.

One day the girl was listening as usual to something she caught on the radio, some talks of the pilots who flew to irrigate the fields with secret pesticides. This time they mumbled and growled something, and then she heard an explosion from her farm. Lilith ran out towards the farm and saw her grandfather lumbering clumsily towards her, a green tint on his skin. He muttered gibberish for some time and finally pulled his hands toward the girl to try and choke her, but at that moment a pitchfork had struck his side - old man Marvin arrived just in time. True, but the girl herself was too not a sissy, and when she rushed out into the street, she grabbed a shotgun lying under the table in the cabin so she hastened to discharge a shot into the monster that her former grandfather had become.

When our heroes decided to get out of the wilderness into the city, they saw that the familiar and hated world they knew was gone, The Wicked one was there instead.
