Hope; or How We Survived is a narrative driven shooting game where you take on the role of a tower guard who protects his town’s survivors and finds other ways to pass the time while not shooting zombies.
In Hope; or How We Survived you are a tower guard who is tasked with keeping a settlement safe in a Walking Dead-esque zombie-filled world. You stand atop the tower and shoot zombies as they charge for your gates, but there’s also a little downtime between attacks and survivors who want in to your settlement.
Before a survivor is allowed into your community they have to sit at your gates for seven days (to prove they’re not infected), during this time you’ll be able to chat to them and you’ll also be their only means of defense against the zombie hordes. You have multiple dialogue choices as you chat to survivors and the game features multiple endings based on your actions throughout the game.
Being a tower guard in a zombie apocalypse may not be a glamorous job, but it’s an interesting concept that should offer up a unique blend of zombie shooting and narrative. Your actions will no doubt be more meaningful as the bond grows between you and the survivors waiting at the gates – you’ll have to make every bullet count if you want to save them!
