What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe this type of experience cannot be achieved in a single step, so we want to optimize our gameplay and design it with the help of player feedback. In addition, we want to recognize those who support us by maintaining contact and thanking them through the community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We aim to come out of Early Access after approximately 6 months.”

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

“In the full release we will open ladders, co-op, mission mode, survival, and more. There will also be new chapters in the story mode, as well as new characters and weapons. And who knows, maybe some surprises along the way too!?”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We already finished about 80% of the game. Right now in the EA version there are 4 chapters in story mode, with 1 playable character and 8 weapon variants consisting of over 100 different models. However, more time is required to fine tune post-processing, skills, character talents, etc.”

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

“The price will not increase when we leave EA.”

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

“We will collect feedback from players, and tune our game according to this feedback. When appropriate, we will launch polls to allow players to assist us in the development of new content.”

Big Day Early Access Release



Hey everyone,

We’re very pleased to finally release Big Day into Early Access on Steam. The development team at Sonic Shield have been working very hard on this, and we’re excited to invite players to experience what we’ve cooked up!

As an Early Access release, expect some rough edges going in. There are issues we’re already aware of, and there’ll be ones that we haven’t come across yet – so please don’t be afraid to sound off here or in the Steam discussion forums.

Please also be aware that the game requires a constant internet connection, and VPNs/firewalls/anti-virus software can sometimes cause problems.
Feedback is essential for us, so thanks in advance for helping out. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the crazy experience that is BIG DAY!

About This Game


Developed by Sonic Shield and published by Zodiac Interactive, Big Day is an intense pixel-art shooter ARPG. Set in the smashed-up aftermath of a crippling zombie outbreak, you’ll pit your wits (and trigger fingers) against hordes of the marauding undead.
Combining a top-down viewpoint with lightning fast combat, you’ll need to build and strengthen your arsenal of boomsticks to have any hope of rescuing your lost daughter, as well as finding out exactly what started this mess in the first place.
  • Story:

    Zombies! Just like in the movies! Society is on its knees, and simple farmer Pancho must travel across what remains of the planet order to rescue his daughter Liz. Along the way he’ll find himself battling through cities infected by the mysterious zombie virus “Snowdrop”, while at the same time becoming tangled in a shocking international conspiracy.
  • Game features:


    Lightning Fast Combat and Shooting.
    Use your array of ranged and close combat attacks to recreate the bloody ballet of movies like “Kill Bill”, reducing the mindless zombie army to glistening red chunks.

    Richly Detailed World
    Whether you’re slicing flesh on the Manhattan Bridge, or blowing holes in fools while rescuing the Queen in Buckingham Palace, Big Day lets you do it in beautiful pixel-art style!

    Explore, Collect, Survive
    Acquire a wide range of weapons and items, enhancing and modifying them to give yourself the edge you need to get through the Big Day!
