A huge open-world game where you have the freedom to play how you want - but your choices have consequences. You've survived the zombie apocalypse by living in a bunker for a year and now it's time to venture out. Scavenge for supplies, find other survivors, trade or fight with them, form relationships and build a community. Go on quests, face moral dilemmas, and uncover dark, terrible secrets!

It's alive.. it's alive! I've finally made the online co-op patch (which has been available in a beta-testing version for the last six months) live in the main branch on Steam!

Besides online co-op I added a few other often-requested features, and fixed some bugs that were reported. Here's the change log:

  • Added Online Co-op

  • Added Log Screen (F5)

  • Changed savegame interface to support more than 8 savegames

  • Added AI for characters following someone who is gathering supplies, or getting water from a well, to do the same

  • Added ability to import translations from TSV files
  • Added Alternate Action shortcut (middle mouse button) to inventory controls for things like Eat, Drink, etc
  • Fixed raiders bodies getting deleted immediately after they die
  • Fixed issue where characters in your community would dislike you for threatening looters
  • Fixed bug where 'There's too many of them out there' awardment was not awarded if you abandoned then re-occupied your bunker.
  • Fixed footstep sound not playing sometimes

The XBox 360 version of this patch is currently making it's way through the peer review process so hopefully it should be out soon too.

Can I just say it would be useful if the music/audio automatically muted when I minimise the game so it doesn't continue on in the background. Currently the only way of doing that without muting all (e.g. for watching YouTube vids) is by using the sound mixer in windows.

Hey dude, I remember playing this game AGES back when it first came out on the Xbox. Glad to hear its out on steam, I'll certainly pick myself up a copy and re-recommend it to my friends! Nice to see its doing well bro, and I look forward to a sequel, or something else by you in the future, I hope?

Thank you so much Bob, for A Great game!
I have almost 30 years of experience with games, and I am absolutely impressed, hooked and addicted to this marvelouse game.

For me the gameplay is the most important. I like the many difficult choises that has to be taken,
health issues of characters and the storyline.

I would very much like to buy the sequel!

My suggestions to your next game would be:

-more complex problems with the characters.
-abillity for characters to make relationships
-...children, not to make, but to protect!
-more building and crafting possibilities like tools, decorations, irrigation, ditches, different housing types and recreational facilitets (shooting range, infermery, workshop, etc. To improve skills.)
-growing more plants and herbs, herbs for medicine purposes.
-no cars or vehicles please!
-possibility to get rid of corpses from zombies.
-possibility for more maps and bigger World. Movement to new map at edge of active map.

Any need for more suggestions or testing ideas, feel free to contact me.

First off, I love this game. I found it when I decided to flip through the most inexpensive, highest rated, zombie related games on Steam and this is definitely one of the best $5 I have spent.

I have gotten stuck on a crash though, I have a raiding team of 5-6 people, and they just recruited the entire Gas Station Mafia. Within about 20 seconds of trying to leave the gas station, the game freezes. I have tried splitting the group in two to reduce the number of people following the leader, but the game often freezes while I am still trying to split the group

That's weird. There is no limit to the number of people that can follow you and I and many people have had more than 5-6 without problems. Could be you've found some very specific scenario... maybe you could email me your savegame so I can try and reproduce the bug?

On a Win8 machine the savegame will be found in:
C:\Users\ USERNAME \Documents\SavedGames\Survivalist\Survivalist - Saved Data\Player1

I rate this game a 10 because it is for SURE one of the best Indie zombie games. I found myself playing this game more than Dead Island because it has such a vast open world and you can do so much in it. You can build more houses for your community, you can built wells for your community, you can farm, you can run'n'gun, and much MUCH more! I recommend this game to a friend and anyone! You should get it. It is only $2.99 on the Xbox 360 Indie game marketplace! I appreciate the developer's (or developer(s…
