    Looks like a mix between tower defense, zombie horde mode games and star craft?

    Tower defense is superficial.

    Itís a PvE base building game where youíre trying to survive against the zombies. Thereís zombies everywhere as well as the occasional mega horde every two weeks or so.

    Itís not a twitch based stimmed up Korean game in terms of pacing at all. But it is brutal. Closest analogue is probably darkest dungeon. Things tend to go tits up very very fast.

    Also. Do let a lone zombie wander into your workers living areas. It makes them stronger.

    Guys with axes are surprisingly shit at killing zombies, who would have guessed.

    P.S. Keep your living areas walled off and segregated into "small" neighborhoods.

    Been watching AznElite123 trying to do the 4th map on 500% population all week (I know it's already been done by others). Seems there still needs to be some balance passes w.r.t. Doom Village vs start placement, as well as spitters, but equally a bunch of streamers seem to not significantly reconsider unit & defence mixes with each patch change (I'm assuming the devs are trying to make all such things viable in every map at least in rarer scenarios).
    Also there's a bunch of rare yet game-ruining bugs, so it's super-brutal to sink time into at the highest level only to lose because of one screwing your perimeter or economy.
    Really want to hear about moddability plans too.

    What fun is a strategy game if you let someone else do all the thinking for you?

    I'm not saying copy them, I'd just use it as an example of what mechanics exist in the game & how they interact.

    You're going to lose if you decide to try out researching just slowing tech instead of higher tier dps/aoe tech. Getting to the final wave is a different matter than being prepared for it. AFAIK there's not a good wiki about yet, so either you do a lot of trial & error to just learn the mechanics, or you use things like this to quickly become aware of what tools even exist to build you own plans around.

    Also, besting the game/developers is one thing, also besting those that are good at the game atm adds another level to play.

    ...I can't even being to list all the e- and IRL games & sports that are PvE yet played competitively, with international tournaments, etc.
    People can enjoy being competitive at almost anything, but specifically we're talking about a game with a leaderboard & weekly shared map seed contest planned.
