Your family is dead. The Government has dissolved. The city is overrun with the infected.

Choose what to do each day and escape before your city is wiped out! Train skills, find gear, improve your home, explore the city, defeat your enemies, adopt pets, and make hundreds of tough life and death decisions with lots of consequence!

Overlive is a highly rated game that plays like a “choose your path” interactive story, with heavy exploration and decision making elements, Role Playing Game (RPG) character development, and real-time combat. Check out the gameplay features below!

* NOTE: This is the FULL version of Overlive. All content and features are available and there are no time limits or ads. Enjoy! *


+ Survive the zombie apocalypse and escape your zombie infested city before time runs out! Overlive's core gameplay is exploring the city and uncovering the story in the style of a "choose your path" interactive story gamebook. Survive by exploring 18 locations and finding one of 8 possible endings!

+ There are 1000s of unique and professionally written events to encounter and even more tough decisions to make! All decisions have consequence; small decisions early in the game can have profound effects later! Meet other survivors and help or exploit them. Plenty of moral decisions will question how far you would go to survive and affect your final score... can you survive without losing yourself?

+ Grow your character as you see fit! Train 9 different skills (melee, firearms, explosives, grappling, stealth, lockpicking, engineering, perception, computers) to overcome obstacles during exploration. Specialize or generalize, fight or bypass bosses, and use your skills to achieve the best ending! Be a stealthy computer hacker or a guns blazing pyromaniac – you decide!

+ You have a limited amount of time to escape your city before the nuclear plant goes into meltdown and destroys what remains of the city (including you)! Each day choose between exploring the city, training your skills, or resting. Learn from your mistakes and improve your survivability and score in subsequent playthroughs - this is a game that is meant to be replayed!

+ Defeat zombies, bosses, and other threats in real-time combat with hand to hand weapons, firearms, and explosives! Enemies come in all sizes and can come at you fast, attack from a range, tank you, or mob you in numbers! Change up your tactics to maximize your combat effectiveness and minimize the time you spend resting at home!

+ Memorable and fearsome bosses will stand in your way to freedom! But don't worry if combat isn't your thing - you can weaken or bypass them entirely using non-combat skills!

+ Find dozens of items to boost your abilities including new weapons and survival gear! Even your home can be upgraded!

+ Achieve the best possible score grade based on your actions, accomplishments, and moral conduct! Everything you do to survive is recorded and is factored into a detailed final score report and grade! 24 diverse achievements are available to be unlocked in the Game Center!

+ This FULL version is 100% free of ads and IAP - you get everything unlocked upfront! It has features not found in the FREE version, including the ability to accelerate the early game (for repeat playthroughs) and choice of difficulty.

why is this crashing? ,

In-game producers?

I absolutely love this game!!!! The different aspects of the story are amazing!! Without giving any spoilers, I especially loved the engineering ending and the mystery ending you get after following all of the clues!!!! I also liked how each time you come across the corpse of a person who has “given up” on their own terms, that they are referred to as a “programmer for a zombie survival RPG game.” I’m assuming that was supposed to be a joke and each one of those characters was based on the actual programmers right?

Amazing hidden gem! Bugs found on new iPhone however

This has always been a wonderful novel / survival rpg. One of my favorite classic app store games. I wish they'd get a lot of money for a sequel.

Some bugs: on iPhone x the melee swipes do not work at all. So generally all your combat will be using ammo. That's a big problem.

Also, I asked years ago for them to shorten the app name to "Overlive" so it's not truncated on the home screen. Devs said they'd do it but they never did...

Excellent Buy

The game has incredible role playing features and it’s combat is well for a role playing game, however I would absolutely love a sandbox version where you have unlimited supplies and named events instead of having them anonymous. I warn you action hooked gamers, this will be a bit boring in terms of combat and other action related components. Overall the game will be great for role players, grinders, you tubers, and people who need a game to play on your commutes.
