Early access review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZkM-sA3IuQ video adventure 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezURmUmX0fY video Adventure 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMgkLk6LL4o video adventure 3 https://youtu.be/lDvtKVBQhqw not bad, the game is in early access so there are things to improve. collision, jumping the character is what would be to be seen. Desolation side is what I expected near a fallout the places are hostile there are bandits, zombies, loot eg backpack, food, weapons, cars. Must understand that the game is in early access, it is playable but do not think having a game ends so tolerence is putting and I hope that the devs will make updates. Here are some videos of my games, the first one is discovered, the others are adventures.

Early access review 09/10/2015: MEFIANCE compared to my evaluation, nothing changed because... nothing changed. The developer has not given any news on steam for more than a month, nor published any fixes while there are still a lot of bugs... and lots of content to add so we really want to spend more than 4 or 5 hours. While the game makes you want. So, real game or beautiful eye powder? I now advise you to wait for new updates to buy it. Game in access ANTICIPATES: positive opinion for those who want to try a game already sufficiently playable and really nice as a whole, but very short in content for now and presenting some bugs. But one can have fun solo or multi to build basic shelters, and especially to use the many weapons available to kill zombies (very easy, but to avoid the body to body because for now, it's far from awesome), Raiders (they are OP, but the Developer will modify them) that give a good loot in General, or other players (you doubt that it is not me who will zlataner the other cigar to the beak). My regret after several hours of play? Just that it is not already finalized, because I love the atmosphere fallout-7DTD. I hope it will keep its side "open game simple and nice", because I am now quite put off by the games "infinite" or one swings between 25 quests permanently or then we get lost in choices of history branching (FNewVegas/Skyrim) last point positive: the main developer is very present on the steam Forum, it does not offend criticism but instead takes any feedback seriously to sum up in English: a very promising post apocaliptic survival game, both solo and multi. Still very basic and bugged, but the core mechanisms are there, the developer is listening to the players and I just regret one thing: it is not allready finished:p
