The zombie sim, Project Zomboid might seem like a simple isometric adventure, I promise it’s much more than just a basic zombie game. Players must explore a randomized map dodging and fighting back zombie hordes, all while fighting for survival. The game has both singleplayer and multiplayer modes, and the building and survival aspects are core to both.
And as you adventure around, you’re going to need clothes. Unfortunately, the game often loves to rip those clothes to shreds. And sometimes, you will want to repair them. Lucky for you that there’s an easy way to repair clothes in Project Zomboid.
