The unique FPS survival game Survive the Nights has a new update that implements various horde and quality-of-life improvements.

Alpha 1.17 has made some changes to zombies. For instance, zombies now do a bit more damage to fortifications at later horde levels. Do not worry though as their HP has been reduced slightly to account for this change.

For QoL improvements, item hovers are now more responsive, meaning that they provide information instantly when being looked at. In addition, flashlights no longer turn off when switching weapons. This is actually pretty useful considering that a lot of people die when the flashlight turns off when changing armaments.
