An open world, voxel-based, sandbox game blending the best elements of FPS, Survival Horror, Tower Defense and Role Playing Games.
In the near future where the a third world war leaves the Earth in ruins but the worst was yet to come. Nobody knows for sure if it was the radiation, the biochemical weapons or an act of god but an unknown virus soon transforms the surviving humans into an army of the animated dead, acting as a single-minded being.
You play a survivor trapped in the savage zombie infested world of Navezgane County Arizona one of the last true Eden’s on Earth. Ironically Navezgane means “Killer of Monsters” to the Apache who have inhabited the land for centuries, and that’s pretty much what you’ll do as you fight to survive and search for the truth behind what really happened.
When released 7 Days to Die should be an interesting mix between, FPS, RPG and Minecraft. A full on crafting, leveling Zombie Apocalypse survival game. The Fun Pimps Entertainment LLC are currently at $82,760 of their $200,000 goal with 15 days to go, so if this looks like your kind of game please try to help them out either by helping to fund their campaign on Kickstarter or by voting for them on Steam Greenlight. As far as we here at Rootgamer are concerned, the more games released for Linux the better and this one looks like it could just be a classic in the making.
