Project Zomboid adds vehicles and goes the extra mile

The Indie Stone's Project Zomboid has been in early access since before early access was a thing. This ambitious zombie survival sandbox has been steadily growing for seven years now, and today it got one of its largest and most game-changing updates yet. Build 39 adds vehicles to the zombopocalypse for the first time, and while that may not sound too amazing on paper the…

Project Zomboid is still in Early Access and that’s amazing

There is only one game I ever purchased on Desura and it was Project Zomboid, way back in 2011. This cool little indie isometric game strove to bring a Romero-esque slow zombie apocalypse to life by mixing survival skills, community management, close quarters combat, exploration, mental health, and a lot of good moaning sounds. It was a project I was backing but also getting in…

Die It Yourself: Project Zomboid’s Creative Mode

I'm not sure when - or if, or how - Project Zomboid [official site] will ever be finished, as developers The Indie Stone are forever finding new things to add to their open-world zombie survival sandbox. Simulating a world with thousands of characters, players and NPCs, can be a mighty deep rabbit world. DayZ has gotten lost down that hole at times, but Zomboid has…

Forever Undead: Dean Hall And Indie Stone Talk Zombies

Mid-way through Rezzed, I decided that somebody must have cloned Dean Hall. The DayZ creator was everywhere. One minute he was talking about the most frightening moment of his life - hanging off the side of Everest, I hear - and the next he was playing games on the showfloor. If he wasn't admiring Maia with an excited twinkle in his eye, he was telling…

Survival Friends: Project Zomboid Multiplayer Enters Beta

What are you doing this weekend? I'll be doing what I always do: travelling to Wales to watch a roller derby match, and playing a multiplayer survival game in a world populated by zombies. No, for once the latter doesn't mean DayZ, but Project Zomboid. The long-in-alpha isometric RPG recently released a new beta-for-the-alpha, which adds multiplayer and is downloadable via Steam.

Oh Happy Day(z): Project Zomboid Multiplayer On Its Way

Scene: The RPS chatroom earlier this morning. Graham: I tried playing Rust and didn't really click with it. It feels earlier even than DayZ. John: Another interesting sounding game ruined by the presence of awful other people. Graham: Haha! Do you play Project Zomboid at all? It's singleplayer. John W: I haven't for a very long time. Adam S: I played Zomboid a couple of…

Map Of The Dead: Project Zomboid Gets Level Editor

If you've ever invested time in a level editor, there's a good chance you've started looking around your environment and considered how you might re-create it in a game. If you've ever invested time in a piece of zombie fiction, there's a good chance you've started looking around your environment and considered how you might survive an attack by the walking dead. The Project Zomboid…

Project Zomboid Shambles On To Steam Early Access

Project Zomboid is up on Steam Early Access now. Project Zomboid is a zombie survival RPG with a grim tone, and it has been in development and paid-alpha for ages. That's it. That's the news. It was in the title. I'm always a little wary, though, of posting things like this, which are just straight-up, matter-of-fact pieces of information about a thing you can now…

Hordey Hi: Zomboid’s “Last Stand” Mode

Everything has a horde mode. Just the other day I accidentally set my microwave to horde mode, and when I returned from a pre-dinner poo I was overwhelmed by burritos. They were deliciously angry. I tried to phone the police for help, but in the stramash I accidentally switched my phone to horde mode as well. There were burritos and phones everywhere. I've sealed the…

Greenlit: Black Mesa, Zomboid, McPixel, More

The saga of Steam Greenlight has, thus far, been packed with unexpected surprises, whiplash-inducing twists, and sudden bursts of lava-like sensuality. Unfortunately, hardly any of it has been related to actual, you know, games. Instead, Greenlight itself and its (in some cases, not-so-well-explained) policies have hogged the spotlight, with Valve doing its best to tweak and modify the system as it goes along. Now, though,…

The Misadventures And Mirth Of Project Zomboid

The Project Zomboid session at Rezzed was right at the beginning of the first day and yet it still managed to be extremely busy. Despite the (approximately) seven million people in attendance, if there's even the slightest chance that one person reading this didn't see the people of The Indie Stone talking about 'How (not) to make a game', I suggest you do so now.…
