Face the zombie horde in this real-time strategy game as you protect your group of survivors.
Set in the distant steampunk future, your goal is to manage and build human colonies amid a zombie apocalypse. There are a few genres mixed into the game, which provides a lot of depth.
The game is survival oriented and incorporates many RTS mechanics along with a pinch of the tower defense genre mixed in. Collect resources, generate energy, build your encampment, increase your army size, and don’t die.

Where can you run this program?
They Are Billions is installable on computers that have Windows 7 or newer operating system.
Is there a better alternative?

We Are Billions is an ok game, but with all its flaws and lack of variety it’s recommended only for fans of the genre.
Should you download it?
No. If you are looking for a real-time strategy game to get lost in, this isn’t it. Instead, you should look at a title in the Age of Empires or Total War Franchises.
