What sets this game apart from 7 Days to Die or Night of the Dead?
It seems generally similar to the above games. Anything I might be missing that is unique to this game?

Night of the Dead is more of a Tower Defense Wave Defense simulator with zombies.

7 Days 2 Die is a Minecraft Clone with zombies that they redo the same updates for over a decade, remove stuff we like, and add stuff everybody hates, like the new super stupid and moronic server browser that 100% of the community hates, but we are stuck with.

Survive the Nights cant really be compared to 7d2d at all. They are nothing alike aside from zombies.


If anything, Project Zomboid is more in tune to this. Think a First Person Project Zomboid of sorts. This would be more Urban Dayzish, less pvp, more survival, but there is still pvp options.

The game has a ways to go, but has some of the best foundation ideas for survival games.

7D2D is a sandbox type survival game. Where as this focuses a tad more on realism compared to 7d2d

:7days: is :shit: to me atm, because I dont like the server browser update. But personally, both are decent games

This game is fairlt relaxed to be a survival game, you can ddge the hordes if you want, tweak server settings easy to determine loot, animal and zombie respawns as well as fuel consumption. The base settings are a bit too easy since loot respawn every 15 minute but can be increased as well as making more or stronger zombies

7D2D has the ability to have procedurally generated maps. This game has a static map with not that much to do. 7D2D has a deeper crafting system, this game is still fairly basic. 7D2D has much better combat and more variety when using weapons (e.g. light attack, heavy attack, throw weapon etc.). Both games have hordes, though 7D2D's model works better. 7D2D has a lot more server configuration that you can use to create a unique experience. I'm not even the biggest fan of 7D2D due to the 'minecraft' like gameplay, but it's still by far a more complete package and interesting experience than this.

Over time, STN's vision has been changed to be closer to what 7D2D is, yet doesn't surpass it in any way. This game has a long way to go, and at the very least give us as much server configuration and mod support as possible so we can make it more unique ourselves.

Simply, 7D2D has WAY more content and variety of things to do. No map is ever the same, traders, tons and tons of POI.

I find this interesting because I've been looking into project zomboid lately.
I once kickstarted this game but my pc was not capable of running it so I never propperly played it (I did do some VERY early testing)
but what's putting me off is that I have to run a server to play it and i'm not sure how to deal with that, I don't have any friends to play with currently

Even if you host a server you can play the game just fine, you can lock the sesion to just you or passwor dprotected. Since there is no story you can just play hwver you want. Yes there is issues in the game such as a bit lack of content, you loot, make a base then what?

Yes, the server running thing was also an issue to me at first, but if I recall, you can make a solo server offline, doesnt mean you have to play online with others,


A space game called Avorion, is the same way, creates a server on your pc, but only you can connect to it unless you change it for others. I am not sure if the devs intend to release a traditional single player, but this and Avorion are made in unity, so it seems a common thing in unity games

English translation from Alisa Gusar: Do you even have a PVP server??

My reply English then Russian.

Hi, you can create a server with the settings you desire. This server can be password protected, host as little or as many friends as you like, but going over the suggested player limit(Not sure off hand the number) may cause issues. PVP is a core feature that the developers designed the game to work with, so every time you kill a player, your character has a chance to go crazy and kill itself. Your player might hallucinate and see or here things not there on your screen. These features are not added as far as I know, and may still change. Hopefully google translates this ok.

Привет, вы можете создать сервер с нужными вам настройками. Этот сервер может быть защищен паролем, размещать столько друзей, сколько вам нужно, но превышение предложенного лимита игроков (не уверен, что это число) может вызвать проблемы. PVP — это основная функция, для работы с которой разработчики разработали игру, поэтому каждый раз, когда вы убиваете игрока, у вашего персонажа есть шанс сойти с ума и убить себя. У вашего игрока могут возникнуть галлюцинации, и он увидит или здесь то, чего нет на вашем экране. Насколько мне известно, эти функции не добавляются и могут измениться. Надеюсь, Google переведет это нормально.

The game still has alot of content to add, atm you can take over a base, or many, loot, kill zombies, gather supplies, make traps, survive horde nights, check out workshop content, but the game is nowhere near finished. The developers are very active on discord and they actually reply to people, not like many modern games where developers are full of themselves and too good to reply to their customers.


These devs are awesome. I kicked started this game years before it was on steam, waiting for the day it would launch. It has much work to go, but the devs dream, the price paid, and the content so far, I got my value out of it, and I cant wait for what the future holds.


Project Zomboid really became a gem from a rough stone. I am hoping for similar from this title.

I too kickstarted the game, unfrotunatenly my pc was never able to run it. I was just playing it earlier and it was fun but also I haven't been able to find a server anywhere to play together because I freak out at jumpscares a lot and this game is a bit jumpscary

The official server keeps saying that I can't post anything because i'm not friends with the server which confuses me

I havent played in awhile, so not sure about that bug. This is the official discord https://discord.gg/survivethenights

I am sure you can find people wanting to play with you there. Personally, I am taking a break from zombies in general, to play some other stuff, but will return in an update or 2.
