June 16, 2021– Game publisher Seasun Games is releasing the demo of Swarm the City on Steam for free today. The game will be fully released sometime between Q3-Q4 2021.
In this demo version, players can have the first try of most of the core gameplay, and experience the unique setting of Zombie’s revenge through 3 major chapters. 
Compared with the last Alpha test, the new version has updated lots of new content such as new zombie generals, boss fight, human army units, and more levels. It will be the first open testing for all players. 
Swarm the City is an isometric zombie strategy game in which, unlike most other zombie games, players will act as the king of zombies to command a zombie army to infect human beings, infiltrate and attack their cities. Use good strategies and avoid getting your zombies killed by cops.

Swarm the City has 20 unique simulated cities, and an army of cops and soldiers with different weapons, mechanical robots, and vehicles with turrets, operating under different social patterns.
You can also use the skill option of injecting the plague before the start to affect the situation, a bit similar to the setting of the Plague Inc.
