Game Zone: Nation Red

by daiashi

About The Game

Nation Red is an ultra fast, infinite play arena-based shooter providing an exceptional close-quarter battlefield experience. Fight thousands of zombie mutants and their bosses in frantic, bloody gameplay while earning close to 100 perks. Fight in Barricade, Survival or Free Play mode. Play Online in co-op, in single player or in local co-op!

August 17, 1977: Scattered groups of zombies infiltrate remote Midwestern towns. Incapable of using tools or weapons, the invaders are resisted until they retreat back into the desert. Special elimination posses are set up to hunt down any of the surviving undead. Six weeks after the squads started their search-and-destroy mission, the last known zombie was shot and killed.

Present-day: Over thirty years had passed when a truck driver traveling down a desolate Arizona road plows into a wall of undead. Before the driver's phone signal went dead, he reported some were carrying guns. They're back, and now they are hunting us. This is a great game. The graphics are similar to Borderlands, but include top down views and zombies.

Some Gameplay Screenshots

Getting It To Run

Install Steam (if you don't have it installed already), then start it. You will need to create a new account, if you do not already have one. Once you have Steam up and running, go to the store tab. Click on the Linux tab if you wish and search for Nation Red. This one has no demo. If you have updated your system, including graphics drivers, you should be good to go.
