Looking for something to play with friends? Check out these few.
Windows, Mac, Linux – Massively Multiplayer – Zombie Survival
Test your survival skills along with your friends in this Free-to-Play, open world zombie survival game. Scavenge abandoned farms, car accidents, and other locations on this 4x4km island for food, water, medication and shelter. Team up with other survivors or build a base and secure your perimeter.
Survius is in active development with regular updates and a few servers (run on a donation system).
Windows – Local Multiplayer (up to 4 people) – Racing
If you live or have lived in South Africa, you will understand how bad the driving is typically of the “Mini Bus Taxi”, so why not become a driver of one and drive like they do against your friends or family. Similar to Mario Kart and other cartoony racers, pick up power ups and race to the finish, along with 3 game modes this is a definitive party game for everyone. (Controllers are needed, however.)
Windows – Massively Multiplayer / Co-op – Zombie Survival
Upgrade your skills, fight off an increasing number of zombies (difficultly changes as more players join the server), customize your weapons and survive! Another free server-based zombie shooter with missions, vehicles, weapons, skins and maps all on its way in future updates. Play in co-op or as a lone wolf.
Super Smash Land
Windows – Local Multiplayer – Party Fighter
Another great party game with a pretty sweet throwback to a familiar era of struggling with plug-in lamps to provide for lack of back lighting or having to keep saving at every opportunity to avoid losing when your cheapo AA batteries run dry. Classified as a “demake” but more of a well-executed admiration to the Super Smash Brothers series. Grab some friends and enjoy some retro smashing.
Sim War 5
Windows – Local Two-Player – Strategy
Fight along with a friend against swarms of monsters in this small, low graphic game reminiscent of similar games from the 90’s. Brilliant if you just want to see who can kill more really quickly.
