Until Dawn is a solitaire card game in which you play as John Woods in an attempt to defend your small cabin from a zombie attack. With the help of your dog, Jasper, and a loaded shotgun, you must stave off the zombies attempting to breach the four entrances to the cabin, and survive until dawn.
Worse, Woods’ wife, Rebecca, is suffering from a zombie bite to the arm, and is doing everything in her power to keep from being overcome by the zombie infection.
Once the sun rises, the zombies disperse, and you can make your escape.
As John Woods, you can defend the cabin by building barricades, commanding Jasper to help, and using your limited supply of shotgun shells. When you have the chance, you can also help Rebecca treat her wound. You may do as many of these actions as you wish, but, when you choose to stop, the zombies will take as many turns as you did.
There are three types of zombies attacking the cabin, each represented by a different colored card. As the zombies attack, cards are drawn from the deck and placed at one of the four entrances to the cabin. Eventually, the zombies will gain enough strength to begin breaking in. If all four entrances are breached, you lose. Just before dawn, the zombies launch one final attack. If you survive this attack, the sun will finally rise and you can make your escape.
