Do you think you can keep people alive in the midst of a disaster? Well, you'll soon be able to find out with next month's launch of Until We Die, an upcoming post-apocalyptic base defense game.

In Until We Die, you take on the role of Ivan. Ivan has been charged with defending a handful of humans living in the Moscow Underground after a bunch of meteorites fall on the Earth and unleash a bunch of spooky creatures. You only need to make it 30 days to win, but what we've seen so far already looks like a heck of a challenge.

This isn't just a base defense game, mind — Ivan is a playable character that you control. Moving Ivan around the base is essential for maneuvering and equipping your troops, and you'll have to protect him, too — the game ends if Ivan dies. You can't neglect your base, either, as the destruction of your power generator will also bring an end to the game.

Things will start off simply enough; hordes of tiny creatures will attack your base in waves. Things will gradually get worse, though, and eventually escalate to monstrous aliens that can barely fit in the subway tunnels, ready to take a bite out of you or your base.
