Strategy Meets Apocalypse in Wanna Survive
It’s not often that tactics / strategy games and the zombie apocalypse go hand in hand. But that all changes with Wanna Survive. Developed by one man dev PINIX Games and published by Nicalis, it’s a very unusual take on the popular genre. Best of all, it’s coming to the Nintendo Switch eShop and Epic Games storefront this May 21st.
If you’re still not sure about this hybrid game, read the PR blurb below:
In Wanna Survive, you battle through a series of turn-based combat scenarios set in a nerve-racking zombie apocalypse—first as a lone adventurer, then as part of a traveling group that expands as you meet other survivors. Different characters have different stats, abilities and attack methods, but there’s no guarantee that they’ll remain in your entourage: The zombies are very bitey, and limited food means there’s a very real risk of starving to death!
To streamline the turn-based gameplay, Wanna Survive uses easy-to-read icons and color coding with elegant controls that quicken the pace. The charming pixel art and animation also help players to quickly assess each evolving battle scenario and evaluate the status and options of allies and enemies at a glance. Satisfy the victory objectives and you’ll move on; fulfill the defeat conditions and you’ll be forced to try again. Fight ever onward and try to keep your people alive until they reach their ultimate goal: the sanctuary city of Borealis!
Wanna Survive definitely has me interested. If nothing else, it’s a unique pairing. Plus it features the musical talents of Ridiculon, which is always great. We’ve previously reviewed Wanna Survive, stating that it “will test your patience. This will test your sanity. This will prove your dedication. But above all, Wanna Survive will prove to be fun.”
Thanks for checking it out, and be sure to check back with HPP for more news from the folks at Nicalis.
