Feature: The biggest hits of the past 12 months

These are the top 100 Steam games of 2017

Another year over, a new one just begun, which means, impossibly, even more games. But what about last year? Which were the games that most people were buying and, more importantly, playing? As is now something of a tradition, Valve have let slip a big ol' breakdown of the most successful titles released on Steam over the past twelve months. Below is the full, hundred-strong…

Feature: And on the 7th day he made the horde

Have You Played… 7 Days To Die?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. This is one of those survival games that gnawed away at the top seller list in Steam for ages. For a long time, I couldn’t understand it. I watched the videos and scoffed at the raggedy character models, the basic textures, the lumpy…

Diary: Seven Days Of Dying In 7 Days To Die

I am wandering down an empty road in a snowy, forested landscape and rustling through every pile of rubbish I see discarded in the gutter. Behind me, in the distance, I can still hear the groans. When I started playing 7 Days To Die, I was sceptical. The crudeness of the graphics and the presentation in the trailer suggest some kind of rough hewn Minecraft…

Survival Games Are Important

In early 2012, a mod for Arma II called DayZ was released. Two-and-a-half years later, its odd mixture of multiplayer, horror, and a need for players to keep themselves fed and watered, has given rise to the survival genre. Let's celebrate that genre.

Impressions: 7 Days To Die

7 Days to Die is what could be simply described as a cross-breeding of Minecraft and DayZ. Combining the harsh pseudo-reality of the latter with the voxel based destruction and exploration of the former, their success made its existence inevitable. Powering onto Early Access after well over doubling its target on Kickstarter, it's obvious from a few moments of play that it's still in the…

Satellite Reign, 7 Days To Die, Maia, More Greenlit

The Steam Greenlight machine keeps right on churning, and I have to say: it's getting a little more efficient. Initially, batches of new games were wheezing out in sickly trickles, but now we're getting 15-game shotgun bursts every couple weeks. There's still plenty of room for improvement of course, and it remains to be seen whether or not Valve can keep pushing this pace, but it's…

7 Days To Die Shambles Onto Kickstarter

Jim has mentioned before that he's mightily impressed by the sheer scope of this giant zombie 'open world, voxel-based, sandbox game blending the best elements of FPS, Survival Horror, Tower Defense and Role Playing Games', though it's probably that scope that has pushed it onto Kickstarter. 7 Days To Die is such a massive game - in the new video they have made they discuss…

Fifteen Minutes Of 7 Days To Die

It's hard not to be impressed by the grisly ambition of 7 Days To Die. It's a voxel-based, open-world take on the ol' zombie survive 'em up, and they're trying to do almost everything you can think of within that space. That list people make regarding "would it be cool if..." for zombie games? That's this game. Granted it's still at an early stage, so…

7 Days To Die Looks Virally Impressive

Minecraft with zombies is, well, Minecraft, but it's also pretty much what 7 Days To Die could be described as. It's a take on the zombie survival theme that also attempts to deliver a world that is as malleable as Minecraft's blocky elysium. You can dig, destroy, build, barricade, and all that good stuff, as well as doing the shotgun business against the hideous undead.…
