|Me Playing – Do you think you could play the audio (at low volume) to the game when we play the video for the stream? It is muted enough that I think the podcast listeners would enjoy it as background music and may help set the mood.

|Until We Die is a side-scrolling strategy game about defending your base where you have to run around as Ivan, assign tasks to people, and fight mutants in the post-apocalyptic subway!
|Have you ever wanted to play a side-scrolling strategy / resource management game (like Kingdom: Two Crowns) with some old school (Metal Slug III) graphics set in a Metro 2033 setting. Uh…yeah…Until We Die that is.
A cataclysmic event sends our comrads retreating into the metro systems of Russian where you must survive for a month (28 days) until rescue can arrive. Lead a small but ever increasing force of fighters who must beat back alien forces bent on your destruction. Too bad you are the only one with a gun and the gumption to bark orders at a band of pretty incompenent AI characters that help you collect, build and defend your base. I hope you like running back and forth in a side-scroller to micro-manage the front lines of defense and all the functions of your metro camp. Make sure the generator is safe and running, prompt exploration, collect scrap, harvest mushrooms and destroy alien nests in a day night cycle that pushes you to the limit of what a little pixel character can handle.
|Boop’s Patented 10 Point Rating System
|Art/Animation: Retro early 2000s art and animation is perfectly recreated.
|Music/Effects: music is moody and effects are gross. Good enough for its genre
|V/O: Grunts and plenty of them.
|World Building: You are in an abandoned metro hiding from aliens…what more do you want!
|Currency/Loot: Food, Gears and Upgrades
|AI/NPCs: They do as ordered. Attack on time.
|Controls: Keyboard or controller. I prefer controller. Simple enough.
|Interface/HUD: Covers the basics. Stays out of the way until needed.
|Replay/Endgame: Replay is where this game lives. The only Endgame is death.
|Score: 7 Baby Alien Eggs out of 10 Run and Hides
