There seems to be a bit of everything thrown into Welcome to ParadiZe. The vibe it gives off can be found in plenty of other titles.

Due to it being a post-apocalyptic adventure, we can see a bit of Fallout in there; it’s zombies, in paradise, so Dead Island is in there, for sure too; but you could also see a hint of Palworld in the game’s main mechanic, which is to use technology to hack a zombie’s nature and turn them into a companion.

Creating a workforce is a whole new game genre, it seems.

So, Welcome to ParadiZe - it’s obviously cool because of the ‘Z’ - sees you guiding a horde of ‘zombots’ around a lush paradise featuring several biomes, including snow, while you try to stay alive. It’s pretty much your standard survival game with base building, creating traps, and fortifying your base. You can use your zombie friends as a workforce, giving them tasks to complete or workstations to operate.

The game is fully playable in co-op, or you can go it alone in the wilds which, from the looks of the trailers and gameplay clips, is full of bitey creatures intent on ending your life. Perhaps with the release of this and Palworld we’re now entering into an era of survival games that aim to build a workforce of creatures that cannot answer for themselves. What morally questionable gaming trope will we see next?

Survival games are big business, 2024 has already seen several of these games launch and there are a bunch more on the horizon. Hopefully Welcome to ParadiZe will be able to grab a share of the pie, but it’s going to be a hard struggle against Palworld and Enshrouded, both of which are seeing huge player counts across platforms.

What this game is offering however, is another large dose of humour and satire, both of which have a place within games that should be expanded where possible.

Welcome to ParadiZe launches on Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and Steam on 29 February.
