How to Survive crafting zombie nightmare on PC, XBLA and PSN

If you're upset over video games still using zombies, imagine that zombies are simply a convenient antagonist to create tension and give an excuse for loads of gore. So in shambles the announcement of How to Survive, a crafty zombie survive 'em up coming for download on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 with local and online multiplayer. How to Survive will dump you on a tropical archipelago amidst a zombie outbreak. "Just like Dead Isla-" you may start but I cut you off, because it's a top-down affair which focuses more on survival. You'll be scavenging for food and water, and crafting "dozens of tools and weapons from fishing rods to Molotov cocktails," publisher 505 Games says in the announcement. "Oh so it's more like Project Zomboi-" you snort, and you're starting to be rude. How to Survive will also have local and online multiplayer for both its story and challenge modes. How to Survive is due this fall, developed by EKO Studios.
