DevBlog 05/25: Anniversary update. Survivors, today is the anniversary of the Last Day on Earth’s launch. And if you thought that we would opt for resting at home to celebrating it with you and releasing a tie-in update, then you were wrong about us! Of course we couldn’t leave you without a surprise and prepared a colorful and funny celebratory update for you! And gifts! Smash enemies with bare hands and achieve various perks! There is a new moderate location added, where you can find a chest with presents, the content of which remains secret. Just open it and you will see, we don’t want to spoil the surprise! In the meanwhile a new creature has settled in the woods - a witch that probably has something to do with the horde of zombies. Defeating the nasty lady will temporarily hide your base from the sight of monsters, for, by hearsay it is she who summons the undead and control them. As you might have already guessed, the new enemy is not so easy to fight, and only the most experienced and skilled survivors will manage to beat her down. Equip yourselves with guns, explosives and first-aid kits and go to check if it’s true. Avoid getting too close to spiky plants on your way, they can harm you. There are also some other things to consider during the battle. Firstly, the witch can summon help from crawlers. Secondly, she can recover her health. Pay attention to the insidious hag - she is much more agile, than the usual enemies and likes to play tricks to protect the horde from survivors. After the victory over the witch, zombies will stop attacking for 72 hours, and there will be a timer over the infected forest showing how much time is left before the next boss respawn. However if the crowd of the walking dead are already on their way, they will reach your base as usually. With any luck, you can get a trophy from the witch, which you can place at the home location. As long as the torch is burning, the horde won’t come out of the infected forest, which is why you have to feed the fire with logs, planks and coal just like workbenches to keep it going. As always, we don’t only introduce the new, but also improve the old. This time we have updated the recipes for the recycler. Now it is possible to disassemble such sundries as bolts, ball bearings, wire and etc. And another pleasant bonus is the reduction of the necessary amount of resources required to feed your canine companions. Exactly a year ago we uploaded the prototype on Play Market to get feedback from players and learn whether survival genre is relevant for mobile games. We could never really imagine that our project would draw attention of thousands of thousands of players from all over the world, eager to build, loot and smash zombies’ heads off. It was your support that made it possible for us to realize our ideas and focus on the development of our post-apocalyptic universe. A year ago there were only a few subscribers of this page and only one survivor in the game that couldn’t even take a look into the bunker. Whatever we have achieved would not have been possible without you, our most restless, constantly criticizing, but cool and endlessly supportive community. Thank you for everything, survivors! Dear iOS users, the update will be available in the App Store in 1-3 days. Thanks for your support!
