Full review

Nearly Dead is a 2D open world survival video game that offers an intense and brutal experience in a post-apocalyptic setting. The game takes place in a world infested with zombies and demonic creatures, where humanity struggles to survive against the odds.

One of the standout features of Nearly Dead is its beautiful retro-style graphics, which add to the immersive atmosphere of the game. The attention to detail in depicting blood spatter and severed limbs brings realism to the battle scenes, making every encounter feel visceral.

Survival is not just about mindlessly killing zombies; it requires strategic thinking. In Nearly Dead, players must assemble other survivors, establish settlements, build an apocalypse truck and gather supplies for their survival plans. This adds depth to gameplay and encourages players to think beyond brute force.

The inclusion of a 'line of sight system' and 'visibility mechanics' adds tension as players need to constantly be aware of their surroundings. Whether it's checking who's behind them or being cautious around corners on dark nights, Nearly Dead keeps players on edge at all times.

In addition to zombies, there are plans for diverse enemies such as demons. And what sets this game apart is that players have the option not only to play as humans but also as anthropomorphic creatures like horses or mice - providing a unique twist on traditional survival games.
