Beware...the Zombie Hordes Are Evolving in Horror Survival Rogue-lite Deadly Days


Posted: May 17, 2019 1:31 am | Gaming Press Releases

Today, Assemble Entertainment - best known for their work on Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don't Dry - announced they have acquired the publishing rights to Pixelsplit's darkly comical rogue-lite zombie survival game, Deadly Days for PC. To celebrate this joyous occasion, Deadly Days will be included in Steam's Post-Apocalyptic Weekend Sale from May 16 to May 20, 2019, where the game will be available for 20% off its normal price.

 

Deadly Days is a unique strategic zombie survival game with light RPG elements. Manage and protect a group of survivors and help them find a cure for the ravenous disease that has taken over! Discover and use a wide variety of crazy items, special abilities, and lethal weapons to try and stem the zombie tide.

The apocalypse started simply enough, with the fast-food chain MKing launching a new burger product on the market. Addictive additives were secretly added to the meat in order to boost sales. You see where this is going, right? The plan worked out. However, the addictive drug meant that all logical brain areas shut down over time, except for the "Gimme fresh meat!" section. And it doesn't want just a light snack. No, this is full-on brain buffets that it craves! As if that wasn't bad enough, this disease also prevents people from dying a natural death! To survive this munching monster nightmare, a high level of ingenuity and some gratuitous violence is necessary.

 

Just in time for Steam's killer sale, where Deadly Days is currently available as part of Early Access, a major patch (v.0.50) will drop, bringing with it a host of new content and updates for zombie hunters old and new! The new features include everything from updated gameplay elements, such as food-gathering, to new missions, and various gameplay and UI improvements.
