The game takes place in a town overrun by the undead. Your character’s morale, hunger, and thirst must be managed, and in-game actions (like farming or combat) will grant new skills and perks. Crafting weapons, gathering food, and constructing fortifications can ward off the swarm mechanics of the horde. Future features include an expanding map, more items, NPC interactions, and online multiplayer. Project Zomboid is scheduled for release when it is released.
