Years of waiting and it comes to this. I’ve been excited about Dead State since I first became aware of it, long before I merged with the RPS Hivemind. Since then, I’ve discovered more about Doublebear’s plans for the zombie survival RPG but I hadn’t had a chance to play it until late last night when the game launched on Steam Early Access. Oh no! Early Access means the game will be crumbling, rotten and bug-ridden like the dead that inhabit it, right? Not so, says the man at Doublebear. This is an early section of the game rather than an early version of the entire game. The first seven days, to be precise, forming an opening act (though for backers and buyers only) rather than a beta build.
