In all honesty, this game looked like a really crappy old skool game when I saw the screenshots.
I was a disbeliever.

I got the game in the Bundle, I played it and now I'm a believer.
Its fun level is the same as Crysis 2 for me. I just can't help but love being the friggin hero who saves people in the cities from zombies, more so when I conquer a city!
This game is amazing, DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVERS. Thats the moral story here.

Bambusk, you get a seperate key for that. If you still have your email for the Humble Bumble Pack, go to it again. You'll see that you got a 2nd key for it.

This game costs $10 USD and 9€ EUR? 9€ is worth almost $13.

Come on, I thought it was just large US publishers that rip off Europeans! Not because I'm cheap or anything, but I refuse to be ripped off because of my nationality.

Heeeeeeey!

I asked the Blendo games guys about AZS getting on Desura AGES ago and they said that they'd look into it. Looks like they finally did! Sweet. This is an amazingly fun game by the way, definitely 9/10.
