|Rebuild, by Sarah
Norway, while displaying a very optimistic world where zombies can
finally be defeated, is a strategy and gestion turn-based game
where most elements operatives can encounter, like the need of
searching survivors, finding supplies etc... are represented, and
even more, like survivors refusing to work when they are unhappy
(a problem NECRA luckily succeeded to solve).
|Rebuild 2, second
iteration of this game, display zombis numbers with color codes
that will be familiar to necra operatives, and add some
(minimalist) items management and a more developed story (but the
balance of the first opus look better).
|Learn more about zombies in Lab
of the Dead by EvilDog, a game allowing you to test their
intelligence, especially suited for operatives having a scientific
|Decision, by Armor Games
/ FlyAnvil, while a little more far away from the situations an
operative can encounter in real life, is an interesting mix of
action, strategy and tower defense elements.
|The Last Stand (1 &
2) by ConArtists also mix survival and action elements.
|Class 3 Outbreak , by
Bynary Space, also including an Outbreak Simulator commemorating
the beginning of the Zombocalypse, was a first test of satellite
imagery use in zombi war, while not exactly the same kind as SCUGS
program. Devoid of resource management, it will still learn you to
take the good streets to avoid zed hordes.
|Project Zomboid by The
Indie Stone, will make you discover the life of an unfortunate
survivor not having access to a NECRA radio, also being a mentally
deficient person when it comes to cook his food, but strangely far
more talented for crafting than our men. Warning unlike the other
programs here, this one is not free and can't even be paid in
|If you find the life or your survivors in the world of living
dead, far too easy and comfortable, try something really
hard in Cataclysm, an
ascii roguelike by headswe
about the life of a very unfortunate survivor plagued by
encumbrance problems (and realize how wise NECRA was for
distributing backpacks to all survivors).
|Far less realistic (and tedious) than the previous two Pestilence
Z, by Twotowergames, is another game about a lone
survivor life, more about combat and with some adventure flavor.
|If you just want to destroy zombies with all kind of possible
weapons, try Insectonator Zombie
Mode, a pure targeting game by FlyAnvil. You won't learn
anything but it may be very relaxing to take this virtual revenge
after some of your survivors were eaten.
