'Wanna Survive' (AL) Announced, Dated - Screens & Trailer

Wanna Survive is a challenging strategy/tactics game with highly streamlined turn-based combat.

You’re still alive, but every day it’s getting harder to stay that way. You roam the countryside in a desperate yet methodical search for food, supplies and the rumored safe haven where the living may be protected from the walking dead. As you fight through the relentless zombie legions, you encounter and join forces with others who cling to their humanity. Many of them have different weapons and abilities, but you all have one thing in common: You Wanna Survive.

Follow multiple characters’ story arcs through a variety of unique combat scenarios and try to keep them alive until they reach their goal: the city of Borealis!

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!

Key Features:

  • Streamlined turn-based tactical combat with a focus on unit placement and synergies
  • Fast, simultaneous enemy movement ensures a true “zombie mob” experience
  • Challenging stages with specific victory objectives and defeat conditions to test your tactical skills
  • Permadeath: Characters who die are gone for good!
  • Resource management: Choose carefully who gets to eat and who goes hungry!
  • Three difficulty settings: “Intense” (default), “Casual” and “Chill”
  • Delicious pixel art and animation
  • Includes original music by Ridiculon (The Binding of Isaac series, The End Is Nigh)

Wanna Survive will be available for Nintendo Switch (eShop) and on PC (Epic Games Store) on May 21, 2021 at $14.99.
