Survive the zombie apocalypse with turn-based combat and permanent death! Manage survivors, go on dangerous scavenging runs, build alliances, craft equipment, make difficult story-influencing decisions, defend your camp against undead hordes and experience non-linear rogue-lite elements. An innovative Indie Survival-RPG!

Just after the zombie outbreak you were fortunate enough to join a group of survivors and hole up in their camp.
But that doesn't set you out of danger! Food supplies are running low, injured survivors must be tended to and materials need to be scavenged to keep the camp intact.
The zombie threat increases steadily and gangs of hostile survivors keep you on the defensive.

Every survivor should be protected because you'll need all hands on deck to defend against the dangers of the apocalypse.
Scavenge supplies in zombie-infested areas, craft survival gear and buy and sell equipment to keep yourself and your camp members alive long enough to learn the skills necessary for long-term survival.
The combat system has its roots in classic role-playing games. You can fight strategically, learn to utilize various weapon types and use a range of bombs or traps.

Should you fail to survive the apocalypse, you can purchase upgrades with medals earned in previous playthroughs to give your new character an edge to start with.
Unlocked pre-apocalypse professions of your character allow you to specialize in various jobs.
Each new playthrough offers different random missions and survivors to meet.

A praised feature of Dead Age is its non-linear story with real in-game consequences. Decisions you make in conflict situations affect the story's future.
You can choose to be a hero and save more survivors, or let them die to stock up on supplies. You can build romance relationships with other survivors or start rivalries that may have disastrous chain reactions.
Daily events offer new dangers and situations in which you must make choices that affect the survival chances of your camp.
Live long enough, and you'll have a chance to unlock one of the game's six possible endings.

Supported ingame languages:

OMG! This game is awesome!

When you start playing this have some patience. It took me several play throughs to understand the details of the games but it is worth it. This is not a game you can pick up and play for 10 or 20 minutes then put down. A lot of decisions need to be made about how to allocate your group members and resources and it takes time. Despite how awesome this game is, I have a few recommendations. Allowing saves in mid day would be nice instead of only at the end of the day. Also, please allow saving to the cloud. I currently have a lot of progress on this game saved onto my iPad but I lost all of the data on my laptop just a week ago. If I sync it, I lose my data. Also a request.......please make another game like this, either a zombie themed sequel or a different version perhaps a Mad Max style apocalypse version. I have not finished this game yet but I know I will be sad when I do because I’ll want to keep playing.

Perfect for iPhone

As the title clearly says, this game is perfect for iPhone. No annoying controls, no rushing only to fat-finger it and die, etc. And the resource allocation elements are a welcome addition as well. Combat is pretty basic so far but still thoroughly enjoyable. I wish there were more combat options, though I think there will be as I get higher in level. The permadeath and inability to save aspects are also pretty cool, though I can still “cheat” by closing the game when I’m close to death and restarting the day. Which is maybe a b**** move, but who are you to judge me? You don’t know me, you don’t know where I’ve been. My struggles, my dreams. You don’t know my shameful secrets, like how I once killed a man on accident and then buried him in a wheat field in West Virginia. You don’t...wait. I think I’ve said too much. I mean, HA HA HA! This game is fantastic! Thanks! Ignore that other stuff, I was just rambling. Great game!

2nd Time Buying Fun Classic TBRPG. 1st Time for Mobile

I have to say I’m a fan of some independent game studios. I purchased this for my PS4 and beat it once so far.

This game can be short depending on the circumstances and even dying rewards you with points to unlock a few things.

What is great about this Turn Base RPG game is the way they handled the Replay Value. They have randomized events to play slightly different each time you start a new game whether you win or loose.

Achievements, give you bonus perks to build the protagonist with skills to add when you start again, or unlock character professions to use for your next game if enough points are collected. 6 total endings 3 successful and 3 failed endings, even one where you win in 20 days.

Dead Age is built around making sure you survive a certain amount of days, 38 max if I’m correct
You may not get all the character in the 1st play through, or you may recruit the same ones at a different days and random event.

I really hope they release the 2nd game for mobile and consoles. Give it a try if you like OG Final Fantasy, zombies, and just want to pass the time building your character with new jobs or skills.
