"planet-sized world" of the undead.
It has procedurally generated worlds, and zombies that stick to the shuffling speed limit. While in alpha, players can still create items, barricades, make fires and interact galore.
The indie studio is offering the game at a cheaper price during the alpha, while the arrival of the beta promises vehicles, better AI, weather, customisation and friendlies.
Sandswept say this is a 'zombie survival game' and not 'just a zombie game' - they want us sweating with chums as we try to eke out an existence in this bleak post-infection world. Visit thefor the 'development roadmap'.
It's available viafor £14.99, or at £44.99 for four copies.
