Die2Nite is a free zombie survival game set in a hostile world inhabited by zombies.
The players (or citizens) are divided into groups and are allocated a small town where they must organise themselves each day in such a way as to survive as long as possible against the zombies. The last remaining survivor will become the Hero of the town. .
You are free do do whatever you choose, and to go your own way, whenever you like !
Objective n°1 : explore to equip yourself
During the day, the citizens can leave the relative safety of the town to explore the desolate wastelands of the World Beyond to find weapons, materials and food.
Objective n°2 : facing the zombie horde
Every night at midnight, the hordes of living-dead attack the town ! Objects found during the day can be used to build defences and protect your home.
Objective n°3 : help one another and survive…
Objects and materials found by the citizens can be shared. Maybe your neighbour found the screw you need to fix your chainsaw ? Your survival depends on your ability to organise yourself and make the most of the community’s resources…
Cooperation is the key in this little gem. It is a truly interesting environment you are put in, 40 strangers in a little town… surrounded by hordes of zombies ready to eat you every night. You have enemies outside the town, but who knows what your neighbour could be conspiring to do next (maybe steal your prized Persian rug). The game pretty much revolves around your community’s forum where you exchange ideas on what to do next in the game; be it building new structures or scavenging in the desert.
The game still has a few bugs and like all browser games links often lead to an error screen. These tiny problems are however fast ignored thanks to
the great atmosphere and setting often enhanced by interesting people found in-game.
If you decide to play please do not do anything when you end up in a random town. Just wait a bit and read the forums, ask for advice and for god’s sakes please build a tent! If you wanna be a lone wolf and eliminate every zed single handedly with a katana and a shotgun, I’m afraid this is not the game for you :(. Need I say that the I died the first night in my first town :D.
All in all Die2Nite is an ideal game for someone with not to much time on their hands or someone who can’t play just 1 game at a time and wants/can/and will play 15 at the same time (me )
