The Fifth Day is a post-apocalyptic survival game set in the time after man’s extinction to the machines that it created. Your role, as one of these machines, is to survive in the hostile world left behind by man. Scavenge the abandoned remains of what was once a great civilization in hope of surviving through the day.

The Fifth Day is currently in Pre-alpha, so look for updates as the game gets closer to release.

Game Features
Environment – Explore a multitude of biomes that include: deserts, red rock valleys, salt pans, plains, radioactive wastes, and dense forests.

Multiplayer – Survive alone, with a partner, or even a team through a series of five days to come out on top as the superior machines of the new world. Multiple modes of play allow you to choose how you want to face the wasteland and survive.

Build Your Own Base – Find resources and construct your own settlement. Construct anything from small wooden shelters to get you through the night to reinforced walls surrounding your fortified encampments that will dominate over others that dare to approach them.

Search for Power – In order to fuel your mechanical being, you will need to find and manage power sources that each bring different advantages as well as costs to using them.

Freeplay – With no story and no objectives, take on the hostile wastes alone in single player where all you have is your own strength and willpower to survive in the world left by man.

Level Up – Survive and upgrade your character to become the most feared and dangerous machine left behind in this new world.
