Do you like zombies? Specifically, do you like making zombie heads explode like a popped zit? Or maybe you would rather lay waste to the zombie hordes through the expenditure of mass quantities of ammo? Maybe you want to design survival bases and use the hordes to tweak your designs?
If any of that sounds remotely awesome, 7 Days to Die might be worth taking a gander at. 7 Days is described as a “survival horde crafting game”. This is an early access title still in alpha status, but very playable. You can pick up a copy for PC on Steam for $24.99.
Partly because I am lazy, and partly because they describe their own game better than I can, here is the description taken directly from https://7daystodie.com/ :
