Redwater Hills is a free zombie survival strategy MMO game set in a real-time persistent world. All players will have access to the same world map and may become enemies or forge alliances to fight off the undead threat or capture several territories that will help them on their missions. Zombie hordes wander around the map looking for the next victims and zombie nests left untouched will grow in size and become even bigger threats.
Redwater Hills is a city building game with a different approach. It’s mostly a story about the survivors, small groups of heroes (over 24 at the time of writing) with distinct abilities and positions that are now cooperating to fend off the zombie threat in an inhospitable world. Outgunned and outnumbered, they will have to do their best to develop their base and fight wave after wave of zombies, bandits and rival groups, all this at your command.
This is a game for fans of the zombie theme – fans of series such as The Walking Dead or the DayZ game. Redwater Hills is visually shallow, mostly functional and combat is simple and mostly automated, but turns out it has an interesting depth to it when the rival groups feature some decent numbers. An interesting proposition and one that is more about the atmosphere and story than just about the city-building, or base-building aspect that we’ve seen in so many browser-based games.
