    In this guide we will show you how to install, modify or remove your game. It is a fairly short thread and will include very clear instructions. Days after Dead offers two types of installers, one is for offline use; and the other online.

    You may click here to download Days after Dead. (opens in a new window)

    Online
    The online installer uses your internet connection to download the latest required files from our server. This is a small executable file of only 3.0 Megabytes. One reason to use this installer over the offline is the ability to pause and resume downloading at any time, even after a full computer restart.

    Offline
    This is a big executable file of 3.4 Gigabytes and contains all data required to play Days after Dead. It is one single file, so it can easily be burned onto a CD-drive or put on a USB-stick to share with other people.

    Installing
    Please be aware that it might take a little while to open the setup (1-2 minutes) due to the big size. Open the spoiler below to learn how to install Days after Dead.
    1. Open Setup.exe or SetupOffline.exe and read the Licenses terms and conditions, then click Install.
