Unturned for PC is another independent sandbox production featuring zombies. Its originality lies in the fact that it combines the mechanics of popular mod DayZ with the graphics of the cult Minecraft. It’s also worth noting that the author of the game is the sixteen-year old Nelson Sexton, known in the gaming community as Greg Stevens or simply ZackZak.
Following the survival sandbox rules of the genre, the game takes us to an open world plagued by a zombie epidemic with one fundamental task: survive. We are going to deal with unrestricted exploration of the area in search of raw materials necessary for survival, interaction and cooperation (or competition) with other players and above all the elimination of zombies appearing alone or in groups. During the game we have to take care of the basic necessities such as health level, thirst or hunger. Extensive crafting system will help us, allowing us to obtain all the necessary items thanks to collected raw materials such as wood, stone, or hunted prey.
Unturned is not entirely a repetitive production. Players can erect not only simple shelters or extensive fortifications, but also construct a variety of traps and electronic security measures. The game also features cars, enabling faster exploration of terrain. During the game we can join both PvP and PvE servers, allowing us to form clans, uniting forces with other players, or focus on tormenting them by stealing their equipment. Unlike many similar games, Unturned for PC offers a large quantity of weapons and equipment that helps those who choose the path of lawlessness.
The graphics of the game resemble a combination of the legendary Minecraft and the popular Roblox, although in some aspects they are a bit more detailed and polished. It is worth noting that Unturned was created in close collaboration with the players’ community. By making the game available in early access, the title is continuously developed based on feedback and suggestions of players.
