This post-apocalyptic game created by “The Fun Pimps” is definitely an adrenaline rush.
This survival horror game is set in an open world following a nuclear third world war that wiped out half of existence. The fictional county of Navezgane, Arizona was the only “safe” place left standing.
The player is a survivor of this detrimental event, which in order to survive must scavenge for food, find shelter and construct a strong living quarter.
Don’t even get me started on the flesh eating zombies on your butt while you attempt to perform these tasks. Of course, you can choose the spawn rate and zombie aggression level, but their goal is still to kill you. Can zombies even have goals?
The game itself technically doesn’t have an objective or end for that matter. You spawn into your choice of either Navezgane or a randomly generated world, with little to no supplies and try to survive for as long as you possibly can.
You collect materials, and craft things in your inventory menu. Weapons, clothes, etc. To cook food, you need to craft a campfire and have a cooking pot on hand.
It is definitely recommended that you find a sturdy shelter before nightfall because this game has a mind of its own, sometimes completely disregarding your chosen settings. You NEVER know how many there will be and honestly that’s just part of the thrill and fun.
The name is self explanatory. You have 7 days to create your “base”, gather supplies, lay down some good ole wooden spikes that we all love (well they’re my favorite) and prepare yourself, because once the night of day 7 hits, all you
will have time for its defending your base. The zombies with ruthlessly break through everything they have to in order to kill you.
Lets not forget eat you, because we all know that’s all they really wanna do
Some of the zombies have little “weapons” of their own.
For instance, there’s cops. They will spew acid at you from a distance and it will kill you if you don’t run. They also explode. They made disgusting gutteral noises and its extremely disturbing. Sounds delightful right? But if you do manage to kill one without it exploding, make sure to check its body. They often carry little goodies that could definitely be useful to you.
Then you have screamers. They scream extremely high pitch aiming to draw in more zombies. Those need to be taken out right away. They are short but fast.
I personally think the worst ones are ferals. They show up in the 7th day horde after day 21 and are apart of the horde that the screamers spawn from day 28 and onwards. They’re IMPOSSIBLE to kill. It takes an
insane amount of fighting and ammo to take these guys out.
Last but not least, we have the annoying little spiders. They crawl around on all fours, screeching. They can climb walls. If you’re hiding on a rooftop, the spiders will still find you.
If you make it through night 7, kudos to you! Sorry to say, it only gets tougher. The zombies get more aggressive, attack in larger numbers and the time to collect supplies and fortify your walls seems to slip away.
In between each “horde day”, you are given another 7 days until the next, which will be harder each time.
Make sure you take your 7 days to strengthen yourself, your weapons and your walls otherwise you’re toast.
Well maybe not toast, I don’t think zombies eat toast- but you definitely are a goner along with everything you created.
