Although the game received many positive reviews, the game is still criticized for having a lack of randomness and variant game modes, thus reduce its replay value.

Many players from reddit, TWOM forum, wiki try to challenge by changing the gameplay style

Comment: Still easy as a cake

Come at me bro! challenge


  • Not allowed to upgrade board up or reinforced door

  • No use healing at hospital.

Comment: Easy as a pie. Not allowing use weapons to defend doesn't make sense since tool count as weapons.

Extreme challenge

The purpose of this challenge is combine other challenge's rules together while not limit the fun factors of the game. And it's will be an extremely hard challenge.


  • Kill everyone you meet (so survivors get depressed). For each location visited, every people must die
  • Not allowed to used healing at hospital (free healing is a great legal exploitation)
  • Not allowed to trade with other trader except Franko (ofc)
  • Refuse help or receive gift from neighbors (so survivors get sad)
  • Not allowed to upgrade board up or reinforced door (so human resource management is required)
  • Only Raw food and Vegetables are allowed to eat (it's mean it will cost a lot of food instead of regular 1 raw food+1 vegetables for every 2 days...)
  • Recruitment is allowed

For alternative version, only eating vegetables is allowed, however not sure if it will be impossible to win or not...

Comment: damn hard...but I beat it, so it's not impossible

The Winter Soldier

  1. No other people can join
  2. Winter must be set to long.
  3. Takes 60 days
