The Fear Spreads – How To Survive On Steam At 75% Discount

Publisher 505 Games continues to dump games, as How To Survive is slashed at a 75% discount on Steam today. It’s the lesser extent of its troubling practices we discussed yesterday, when it was revealed that PC shooter Takedown: Red Sabre is almost given away at a 90% cut until February 17, 2014.

In our previous example, the shooter had been out for five months. For this deal, How To Survive has been going on for a little over three months, with equally tepid reception. That means, it’s now entering worthless territory and so, you can pick it up for €3.49.

If the title didn’t give it away, How To Survive uses the survival zombie genre for its isometric adventure. Players are tasked with gathering up resources, with a side of hunting for food and fending off waves of undead. Within, there’s also a roleplay character enhancement design. Those known to the style can mix together Project Zomboid with State of Decay and get an idea of what this game is like.

With a reception currently giving it a decent yet not stellar 58 rating on Metacritic, interest in the game has been low. It’s not like it’s pitching a new idea, but still. Read our previous post for our take on having fairly new releases with giant discounts. At least, How To Survive is only up for a day. Expect Rekoil to see a similar treatment soon, very soon.
