How To Survive 2

How to survive the zombocalypse: meet up with a few chums, build yourself a base camp, then craft, craft like there's no tomorrow (because there probably isn't). That's how to survive in, er, How To Survive 2 (opens in new tab), sequel to the co-op action RPG that adds online multiplayer, randomised environments, a new camera, that camp system and more. EKO Software's game is now on Steam Early Access (opens in new tab), with 20% off for the next week or so.

The Early Access version currently comprises an open world sandbox, set in a post-apocalyptic Louisiana, with online multiplayer, camps, crafting, levelling and survival systems (i.e. you'll need to eat and drink now and again). Oh, and there are also weapons and lots of zombies to use them on. EKO hasn't set an exact date for the full release, but they hope to be done sometime in 2016.

The original How To Survive is currently 85% off (opens in new tab) in the Steam Halloween sale.

His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet.
