Zelter is a zombie survival game. But you aren't only defending yourself from the oncoming hordes of zombies but developing a safe haven for a new life like Stardew Valley.

While developing your safe haven, you'll need to craft tools for both your survival as well as your defence. Food and water are necessary for your survival too, so you'll need to begin developing your own farm. Also, not everything you need can be found in your safe(ish) plot of land so you'll need to go out and scavenge materials from town, perhaps you can find other survivors while you're out there.
