Dead Year is going to be a top down shooter, open world, dynamic zombie game. there will be randomly placed and named groups of npcs, or "survivors", which depending on your class, you can lead and command, equip them, and build fortresses for them. you will be able to find guns and melee weapons, as well as build custom weapons. you will be able to buy and build gun attachments. you will be able to build lots of different armors, varying from zombie skin to reinforced steel armor. you will be able to find and fix broken down vehicles, turn them into mobile fortresses, and mow down zombies with them. there will be dynamic day and night cycles, at which point zombies re-spawn during the night. these are just currently planned features, more to come!
