Zelter is a top-down post-apocalyptic zombie survival game, which gets an alpha demo that you can download over at its Steam page. It’s being developed by G1 Playground.
Aside from the pixel art style and general beautiful visiuals, you’ll enjoying trying to survive against hordes of zombies trying to attack you. Finding and managing your resources to build up your base, crafting tools and defense systems to protect said base, as well as cooking some food.
On your journey you will meet other survivalists. Use this opportunity to rebuild your crew together, after all, saving one’s life creates an excellent first impression. Once they are a part of your crew you can direct them to craft essential supplies, guard vital positions, accompany you on your scavenger hunt, and help you to build an impenetrable fortress, ready for the inevitable zombie attacks. It’s not all serious though, through the various interactions you will be shown a funny side as well, giving you a combination of both serene moments of base building and intense action.
The best way for us to describe the game well is imagining it as State of Decay meets Stardew Valley or Terraria, all packaged up with fun visuals.
