“Surviving isn’t just about blowing off zombie heads. Its about surviving depression, starvation, loneliness, illness, insanity…. “
The Indie Stone are an indie game development team working out of the UK and Canada to create their vision of the ideal zombie survival game, an open world survival horror video game available on PC, Mac and Linux.
The aim of Project Zomboid is to survive as long as possible. In addition to fleeing the hordes of undead, players can scavenge for food, craft items, construct barricades and fight against inevitable death. You can team up with doomed buddies on user-created servers. You can explore an isometric Muldraugh, KY, in a vast, growing map. And figure out where to make your last stand. Through the game, players will develop skills while fending off depression, boredom and addictions.
The game offers modding support via the LUA programming language. In recent news Project Zomboid announced a Creative Mode, “….an in-game building mode that will allow PZ players to collaboratively construct their own houses, towns and cities and upload them directly to Steam Workshop…. With Creative Mode everyone can build their school or home town in a fun and engaging way, and then of course populate it with zombies for the whole world to experience...”
Other planned features for the games include more weapons, animations, recipes, locations, survival systems and the introduction of dogs. A nice touch to have a faithful pooch as a companion in the apocalypse.
