DAVE THE DIVER developers announce pre-alpha for NAKWON: LAST PARADISE, their zombie stealth extraction game

From Press Release:

SEOUL, South Korea (November 21, 2023)— Today MINTROCKET announced the pre-alpha playtest of its upcoming zombie apocalypse stealth survival game, NAKWON: LAST PARADISE. Alongside this announcement, the team shared a first look at the game’s hair-raising close combat in a new gameplay trailer. Players eager to test out the realistic urban extraction gameplay set in Seoul can wishlist the game on Steam to receive an email alert when the event kicks off; the playtest itself runs from November 29th at 17:00 PST to December 3rd at 23:59 PST.


“As we continue to improve NAKWON’s multiplayer experience, we hope community collaboration will be a core part of our development process. We’re still very early on in playable development— this playtest is by no means representative of our planned final product— but we’re excited to share our journey with players and hear their initial feedback. This is a great opportunity for passionate players to get involved at an early stage and help us shape the project,” said Game Director, Jang Kyoung Han. “We intend to implement player feedback from the pre-alpha this year, and follow up with a more robust public test sometime next year, with the goal of building a fun and original survival experience for players.”

Seoul is a city where guns are scarce, but hiding spots are plentiful within its clustered buildings and alleys, making it the perfect backdrop for NAKWON’s blend of realistic simulation and extraction stealth gameplay. In NAKWON, citizens must rely on their wits, stealth, and cunning to avoid or misdirect the dangerous undead who roam the streets. The NAKWON governing body mandates regular scouting missions, in which citizens must brave a lawless urban zone where zombies aren’t the only threats— the greed of other players seeking scavenged supplies can be just as deadly.

Players who wishlist NAKWON: LAST PARADISE on Steam will receive an alert when the pre-alpha playtest starts on November 29th. Participation in the playtest is free, and there is no limit on the number of survivors who can join the event. For more information— and to be a foundational part of the game’s community— join the survivors of NAKWON on Discord.
