Dead Maze Release Date PC
Established in 2011, the studio Atelier 801 from France is responsible for a number of small productions, with Transformice being the most successful – it was a game that treated about mice. Their next title was an MMO game Dead Maze.
The action of Dead Maze takes place in an alternative reality. For some reason, the Earth is flooded with zombies. Most of the population died and turned into the undead, and you assume the role of one of the survivors. To stay alive, you have to cooperate with other players.
Dead Maze is a 2D MMO with the top-down perspective. This is a mixture of popular game genres, but the most prominent one is survival, as this is what the title focuses on. Similarly to other such productions, you travel through an open world in order to find resources, food, and shelter. The last item on this list can take various forms. Initially, you rest near a bonfire, but along the progress, you arrive at e.g. abandoned houses where you can take a proper rest. Later, you can create your own, huge camps. However, to do so, you will need loads of help from others. To keep the place functional and properly working, many have to perform their roles – some need to keep guard, some cultivate land and breed livestock, while others set out on dangerous missions outside.
The production by Atelier 801 is designed for cooperation. It’s virtually impossible to survive on your own. Only by forming alliances and making friends with other players can you achieve something. This concerns not only the setting up of great camps, but also combat. In Dead Maze, large groups of zombies are everywhere. Moreover, the developers introduced over 500 various tools of destruction which are something more than just rifles and shotguns. So, you can wield e.g. fire extinguishers, guitars, spiked batons, or simple knives. Luckily, unity is strength, so even such primitive weapons can be very effective if used in cooperation with other survivors.
Communication plays the key role. Through e.g. the in-built chat, you can coordinate your actions and make plans. This is important, since the demand for different resources doesn’t just automatically increase along the progress – it rather depends on the player’s actions. For example, building a camp takes assigning new players to keeping guard, the guards must be fed, which, in turn, imposes more frequent escapades for food or intensifying your agricultural efforts.
Dead Maze offers simple, cartoon visuals which may bring to mind such games as The Sims Social. Consequently, the game’s hardware requirements are not very high, so it should work properly even on weaker configurations.
