This week, we'll be quickly running through the most important feature released this month inside the "June Update": The new SURVIVE! game mode

So! Why the big deal? Well.. Because if you ever wanted to play the game a few notches faster now you have the chance. And this is just the tip of the iceberg as the new game mode is going to see a LOT of improvements these upcoming months. I'll tell you what that is going to be, just read a few more lines.

               Yeah, there's a lot of BOOM! and LEVEL UP! Prepare for a serious war, you're in one!

The main idea of this game mode is to get the highest score. Which can get tricky, really. Because you need to carefully juggle both the "SCORE" and the "ACCURACY" meters. And accuracy is no joke, it goes up and down really fast if you're not planning your weapons, skills and reflexes just right. Here's how I've been going about my score in a 7 night play session(7 out of 10 because I'm no good).

                                                      survival score
                               Score and accuracy rise and vary throughout 7 game nights

You will be testing your skills during 10 game nights. Each night, a set of waves of infected starts and you need to send them back to where they came from.. or just kill them. Good news though, there's a pause wave between each infected wave.

                                               survive nights
                                                 Nights and waves progress swatch

There's more good news. You can team up with NPCs, buy, trade, learn new skills or upgrade others. Really a lot of help from all these kind NPC people, if you can afford to pay them, that is! With all the precious scavenging, looting and traders, I managed to build some serious bonus stats!

                                                survive atts
      Bonuses built via 7 nights of SURVIVE! game mode. Just imagine what one could accomplish in 10!

After each set of waves completed at night, in the morning the shop opens and you can meet up with your favorite traders to then trade in the goods. There is some major firepower to be obtained by playing your cards right in this game mode. You have until 6:00PM to scavenge the map, close the deals and prepare your battlefield.

          survive boom
      No! This is not an airstrike, just some high Level, explosive action.. you know, nothing special :)
    (note. the plan above actually failed, I've missed the BOSS type infected by a few meters)

Alright. I hope to have explained some basics about the game mode. It's pretty simple to grasp right now, really. In the upcoming months we'll be adding new maps, more complex and random mission quests for each night, which will be very different, changing the gameplay and the means with which you score points a lot! One night you might have to survive while guarding some point, saving others and other times you might need to get from A to B. These are just a few examples of the random quest objectives you'll be trying to complete while doing your best to stay alive. You will not be limited to 10 nights either, it will go on forever, if you can make it, that is!

We thank you for your attention and invite you to follow our progress each week!

  flaming infected                           As a final note, here's an infected on fire, for your entertainment.

The game is good, but there's some very issues with the framerate. I drop from 60 to 30 (even less with the light on) around zombies.

Hi there, you can go to Options and choose a lesser lighting detail, that should make it better with multiple lights around the character (including a lit lantern)

I Bought t his game off of Groupees, and I cannot launch it from Desura. I can launch it from the desktop shortcut though. Any ideas?

And by Cannot launch I mean that It keeps re-installing it.

That's the way it is, according to the developers in the forum. You have to launch it from the start menu. There's almost no integration of the game with desura.

We really dont know why that happened, i have no knowledge of Desura staff contacting us and requiring help to get this sorted out, we thought they will just make it work with their platform. We would have loved to have it running inside Desura directly but we cant tell why is not working (at least i cant - im the lead programmer)

Good luck, guys! I got the game yesterday from the Groupees bundle and it's been a whole lot of fun, so I'll make sure to support you on kickstarter as well :)

PS: could you tell me what are the system requirements? I'm thinking of installing this on my laptop as well, but it's quite an old machine, I'm not exactly sure it'll run smoothly. Thanks!
