I wish we could tell you what sets EKO Studios' upcoming How to Survive apart from other survival-focused zombie apocalypse simulators. Unfortunately, the information that came with this first batch of screenshots was a bit sparse.

The title, which will be published by 505 Games (who is also publishing the upcoming PayDay 2) on Xbox Live Arcade, the PlayStation Network, and Steam, will put players on an archipelago off the coast of South America. There, they will have to craft weapons, find vital supplies, and survive hordes of infected.

The cause of the zombie apocalypse in How to Survive is a mystery, but then again, so is pretty much everything else about the game at this point. Hopefully we'll have some more information about this title soon. For now, we've got five screenshots, including one that seems to depict a survivor fighting off some zombies with a t-shirt cannon.
