7 Days to Die was released on December 13, 2013 by The Fun Pimps Entertainment LLC. The game was developed by The Fun Pimps. 7 Days to Die to a first person shooter.

7 Days to Die is an open-world game that is a unique combination of first person shooter, survival horror, tower defense, and role-playing games. Play the definitive zombie survival sandbox RPG that came first. Navezgane awaits!

The game’s events happen during aftermath of a nuclear Third World War that destroyed an extremely large part of the world, except for some areas such as the fictional county of Navezgane, Arizona. The player is a survivor of the war who must survive by finding shelter, food and water, as well as scavenging supplies to fend off the numerous zombies (hinted to be the consequence of nuclear fallout) that populate Navezgane. Though there is no real objective except surviving at this moment, the developers promised a dynamic storyline in the Kickstarter and stretch goals. The video with more explanation has since been removed by the developer.

While 7 Days to Die is a survival class first person shooter, the game has a crafting system typical of role playing games. The game has 100 skills books and 5 perk disciplines. Craft and repair weapons, clothes, armor, tools, vehicles, and more with over 500 recipes. Learn more powerful recipes by finding schematics.

Take over a ruin, or build from the ground-up. Design the ultimate fort to include traps, electric power, auto turrets, automated doors, gadgets and defensive positions to survive the undead. The world is fully destructible and moldable. A rooftop is no refuge, vultures will come in an attack the player.

 There is no manual save/load option in game, and the autosave will randomly cause a crash where it resets all your progress. This suggests that much more work on the game is needed. Over the years the game has expanded and evolved while maintaining the focus on the zombie shooter.
