Into the Dead: Our Darkest Days features in PC Gaming Show

June 10, 2024

WELLINGTON, NZ – PikPok’s Into the Dead: Our Darkest Days, the shelter survival game set in a zombie-infested Texas city, offers a new glimpse of its harrowing vision of an undead outbreak in today’s PC Gaming Show with a new gameplay teaser. The game forms part of the Into the Dead franchise, which has more than 150 million downloads. Survivors intent on overcoming and escaping the zombie plague can prepare with a playable demo on Steam, available in October 2024. 

As the undead overrun Walton, Texas, in the summer of 1980, desperate survivors band together in hopes of staying alive long enough to escape the city.

Into the Dead: Our Darkest Days’ PC Gaming Show teaser showcases three cornerstones of the game: planning, adapting, and surviving. Scavenge various locations for valuable materials, carefully avoiding zombies in heavily infected areas. Balance the needs and well-being of each survivor, and upgrade meager shelters with fortifications and amenities to make it through the night before selecting new locations to explore the following day. 

As time passes, Walton City’s undead inhabitants spread like the plague, requiring flexibility and adaptability. Utilize resources to craft weapons and tools to face down zombies, and move shelters frequently to stay relatively safe. Make difficult choices that affect the group’s morale, welcome newcomers, or prey on trusting survivors when supplies become scarce. Adjust to evolving escape plans as you navigate difficult in-game decisions, survivor permadeath, and the ever-present threat of encroaching zombies.

“Into the Dead: Our Darkest Days blends survival horror-inspired gameplay with challenging management elements where every decision counts,” said Mario Wynands, CEO of PikPok. “We’re thrilled to showcase a small slice of what to expect at the PC Gaming Show before our first public playable demo in October 2024.”

Into The Dead: Our Darkest Days will launch on PC via Steam Early Access in 2025, with a playable demo coming in October 2024. For more information about Into the Dead: Our Darkest Days, visit the official website and follow the game on TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter/X.
