Traverse 3 zones and solve puzzles to unlock tools, weapons, and other ways to help you identify the infected but beware: at the end of every zone, a blackout occurs where the infected are free to show their true form.

Can you figure out who’s infected before it’s too late? Or can you hide your infected nature long enough to feed on your innocent victims?

Try it out here.

5. Fistful of Frags (PC)

Fistful of Frags gameplay

It doesn’t get more straightforward than Fistful of Frags: a first-person wild-west multiplayer with weaponry as unforgiving as the wild-west itself.

3. Unturned (PC)

Unturned gameplay

Although it takes place in a ruined society’s zombie-infested wasteland, Unturned is not just another zombie survival game.

This game does “sandbox” right, with massive, community-maintained areas, different countries, and the abilities to hunt, fish, pilot aircraft, watercraft, or land vehicles, this is just the tip of the polygonal iceberg.

Being massively customizable and with endless things to do and places to explore, you can easily and happily get lost and immersed in the world of Unturned.

Play it here.
