A Way To Be Dead seems to be an apt description of someone trying to play it. The preview is short and not that helpful as despite many many attempts I have been unable to find a game to actually play the thing! You can only do this one mode and with no server browser or bot support it’s a dead end a lot of the time. You need a minimum of four players to start and the most I’ve had is 3. From what I read in the how to play section it’s a Dead By Daylight type game whereby if you are the killer you can eat the zombies hearts to mutate, you can loot weapons to use and see footprints to help track victims. If you are a victim you can loot, use weapons and fight zombies and one cool thing is you can play dead! It sounds like there may be something here but until I can play it I chalk this up to rumour. Il try again at a later date so keep an eye out.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
