Dead Maze unleashes the zombie apocalypse today

Where will you go and what will you do when the zombie apocalypse hits? You better figure it out real fast, pal, because it’s already here.

Dead Maze, the multiplayer zombie survival simulator, officially launched today. Its 2-D free-to-play offerings shambled its way onto Steam, where players can see if they really can make it in the end of the world. Apart from its presentation, Dead Maze sets itself apart from most other zombie titles by putting the focus on social cooperative survival instead of PvP conflict.

“We want to build fun multiplayer games that players around the world can enjoy together,” said Atelier 801 Co-Founder Mélanie Christin. “With Dead Maze, that meant looking at how we can approach a zombie themed MMO game that feels fresh and new for the genre, where cooperation is key. I believe we achieved that with Dead Maze thanks to its unique art style, deep crafting system, and our growing community of players.”

More story campaigns and a player map editor are in the works for future updates. Check out the launch trailer below and see how MJ fared when she was thrown headfirst into this savage world (she’s trying her hand at it again today at 3:00 p.m.!).
