Dead 'til Dawn

Dead 'til Dawn is a zombie narrative survival horror game for 3 to 8 players. The game feels like a group "choose-your-own-adventure" mixed with competitive role play. The best part is that when survivors die, they aren't out the game - they simply join the zombie team, and can totally still win! 


Who will you be, when night falls and the dead walk? And what will you become by dawn?

About Us

Cavewolf Games

Based in Seattle, our first title to launch is Dead 'til Dawn. Says game designer Steve Cave, "This game is over a decade in the making, and I can't even express how excited I am to finally get it published. I first got this game idea back when my friends were heavily into playing Werewolf - an awesome party game, but I hated it when people died and couldn't play anymore. The rest of the game spun out from that initial concept, and in development it really took on a life of its own. It's a unique and fun game to play!" After 5+ years of playtesting, we're excited to launch!
