"7 Days to Die" is a new game gathering major buzz in the underground gaming community. It has been described as a mix of Day Z and Minecraft.
According to the developers, the story is set in the distant future where nuclear attacks and an unknown virus has devastated the remaining population and left them to survive. You play the role of a survive scavenging your way across an open world.
“7 Days to Die” is an open world, voxel-based, sandbox game blending the best elements of FPS, Survival Horror, RPG and Tower Defense style games. “7 Days to Die” will allow players to build defenses, craft weapons, barricade buildings, scavenge through houses, and survive a terrifying night and day cycle.
The game has been Greenlit on steam and are currently raising funds on Kickstarter to further develop the game. The best deal seems to be the $35 dollar package because it allows you into the alpha, beta, and retail release of the game. Those wanting to promote without giving money can vote on steam's Greenlit program. It keeps them on the visible which helps a lot especially when they're trying to raise awareness and buzz.
Personally, I look forward to joining a server with a buddy and building a fort. For more information, visit the "7 Days to Die" website. Check back for first impression footage and game reviews.
