How to Survive is an isometric zombie survival game with RPG elements and a heavy focus on crafting what you need to make it through the zombie apocalypse.

Check out Joshua Vanderwall's full preview here:

he most quirky bit about How to Survive isn't the combat, though, and it's not the played out zombie survival theme - it's the fact that the game focuses heavily on crafting. You'll craft your bow and arrow from a stick and some string. You'll reinforce your bow with a metal pipe to increase damage. You can upgrade again later to a crossbow, and eventually you can even start assembling firearms of sorts. You can kill birds for feathers to make your crafted arrows more accurate, and you can craft various kinds of food with different levels of benefits to your character. If you're a crafter, this game might be right up your alley. That is, of course, if you're also a completionist.
