    Afterlife Arcade is a FPS wave-based action game created by 5 students as an 8-week project. Gain tickets by slaying waves of zombies to continue into the next area of the arcade or purchase upgrades.

    Conclusion:
    Afterlife Arcade ran perfectly on my GeForce GTX 1060 with Wine 4.0 64-bit and DXVK. I was even able to play co-op with two USB controllers. There is no save/load feature, so you basically play until you die, then start over.
