    7 Days to Die

    Has anyone here got the early access version of this? My brother and brother-in-law have it (noticed they both bought it, was the first I heard of it) and must say, it looks like it could be a great laugh!

    Think Day Z meets Minecraft:



    EDIT: I can't access Steam at work, but if you watch the video there it tells you more about future plans and shows off a bit of the physics - unlike Minecraft, blocks have mass and strength so building things like bridges means you have to build supporting structures so that it can take it's own weight plus the weight of any people/vehicles that cross it. Seems like a really cool idea

    Thank you for this. I'm getting it when it's out.

    Come on people, it's Day Z and Minecraft rolled in to one! Somebody other than myself and @Sunnyknight must be excited by that idea?

    If it came to Xbox 360/Xbox One (when I get one) then I'd be happy.

    I'm tempted, apart from the cost on Steam, i'm starting to dislike the current trend of paying to beta test a game..

    It is however cheaper to purchase from the official site, and you still get a steam key 7 Days to Die | The Survival Horde Crafting Game ($27.95 which works out around £18.25)

    Steam sale soon. You could hold out in hope that it gets a discount.

    I know what you're saying but to be fair, you do get a discount on full release price (plus of course you get the full release version when it's ready). On free betas you very rarely get a free copy of the released game. I look at it more as a discount pre-order and access to the beta as a bonus, rather than paying to play a beta. It hurts less forking out the cash that way!

    Finger's crossed!

    I've played, ran a server on there for a day or two and can't say I was really blown away.. this was a few months ago though.

    Was rather fun being able to take the floor out from below the zombies, but other than that, it didn't really grab me as being anything special.

    Would like to bump this again.

    Anyone else bought it yet? Looks to be a helluva lot of fun, and its had a lot of development.

    I watched the video at lunch time, it needs to be proper survival style. Make it a massive map (say size of london), dense areas, rural areas, country side, and everything you would expect to see. Plus factor in animations and the like for proper removal of items without notifying zombies around or whatever.

    No guns laying around everywhere. Make your own weaponry (flint axe or whatever). Then I would be happy to play. Make it true survivalism style.

    I played it for a couple of days at Christmas but like DMcGuigan above but wasn't amazed. It's still very clunky and didn't really do it for me. At least not yet.

    Got a server up and running.

    If anyone does buy this in the near future, or wants to have a few laughs, lemme know!
