Stranded 2

In Stranded 2 you face up with the struggle for survival. You are playing the role of a castaway and your general aim is "just" to survive on the assumed lonely island at whose sandy beach you have been carried by the sweep of fate. The whole island world is now better designed and has more details. It's possible to poison animals or to burn trees for example. One of the best improvements is simply the huge number of new possibilities and objects. Far more than 100 different items want to be found, used, combined, eaten or obstructed. Gather food, tinker your own tools and weapons, go hunting, construct buildings and vehicles, tame wild animals and ride them or find legendary treasures! Many new buildings allow you to build a powerful camp which offers protection and unexpected comfort.

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is a first-person action survival game that brings to life the authentic, heart-stopping horrors of the AMC hit TV series The Walking Dead.

It is set in the Georgia countryside as they make their way to Atlanta during the early days of the zombie apocalypse. The player can either fight the walkers or stealthily sneak past them. As he travels, he meets other survivors, who can either help or leave. He will have to be cautious of how much fuel, ammo and food he has, and think very strategically of who and how many he chooses to take in to his group.
