Game Overview
There's lots of zombie games on the market. Loads of 'em in fact. But maybe you were looking for a zombie game with a little bit of everything. Double Death is a community driven single and multiplayer game in which you can customize your character with tons of accessories and take part in the zombie apocalypse. But what sets the game apart from other games? Well, mainly the fact that the game has a huge ass modding API which can be easily used to make custom gamemodes and maps.Unlock & Equip perks to mix up how you fight, or create cool zombie killin' combos to spin a slot machine to create some chaos on the battlefield. Team up with friends or play alone as you fight the horde or take part in creating the apocalypse, making as many maps and game modes as you want.

Default Gamemodes
Classic
Drawing inspiration from games like Killing Floor and L4D, this is a mode about surviving a set number of waves with friends or by yourself. Visit the trader in between waves to upgrade weapons. By default all special zombies, all perks, and all power ups are enabled in this mode.
Endless
Similar to Classic, but instead of surviving a set number of waves, the horde will never stop coming. Ever. By default all special zombies, all perks, and all power ups are enabled in this mode.
Infection
Arena style mode where players can actually play as the zombies as well as the survivors, and try to kill each other. Multiplayer only.
Arcade
In a sense, it's basically story mode. It's a handpicked rotation of the default maps with extra content added in, such as NPC's and objectives.

Default Maps
East Side
What's left of a large city overrun by the horde. Straightforward layout without many obstacles. Nothing too special here, but maybe some buildings hide some cool stuff.
Downtown
Same city as East Side, but in the heart of the horde. This map extends underground as well, allowing you to roam the streets or explore the sewers below. Features a few secrets in the sprawling sewers.
Sunken
It's the Titanic a ship about to meet its doom, swaying back forth while hordes of zombies flood the decks. Features areas above and below decks, as well as a couple of easter eggs and dynamic events, one of which leads to an insane boss battle.
Grindhouse
An old, abandoned warehouse filled with tons of places to hide and take refuge. Pretty straightforward besides that, with nothing too special. It's exactly what the name says it is.
Nuclear
An abandoned nuclear plant. Multi-level map with one large easter egg with a very insane "reward". Also contains a few secrets.
Refuge
A very limited map consisting of a makeshift refuge on the top of a hill. Zombies come from both sides and try to break in. Sort of a KOTH style map.
Ruined
The largest included default map. Consists of a massive, sprawling city in complete ruin. Tons of secrets and easter eggs are included here, as well as a few things not seen in any other map.

Custom Content
Custom content can be made for the following:
-Guns/Gun Mods
-Zombies
-Maps
-Gamemodes
-And More (It's possible!)

Hello everyone! Bonesy here again.

So, it's been quite awhile since the last "State of The Game" post, right? I can assure you (if you don't follow the devlog here) that I'm not dead! In fact, I'm quite the opposite. I've been working vigorously on the game. Unfortunately, it looks like I'm going to be pushing back the release date at least a few months. No worries though, it's all for good reason! With all this time I'm going to make the game as great as possible. I don't like Early Access myself, so I will not be planning to release early playable builds for the public, sorry. However, I'm going to make sure to release as many screens and gifs as possible to make up for it! But anyway, without me rambling any further, I'll get into the actual state of the game.

Multiplayer:

Server setup and Lobby previews. Currently a server can have as many players as you want on it, but the lobby will only show 6 players and then a "X Number More Players" line. This is still a massive WIP, so I can guarantee you the final lobby will probably be more fancy.As far as the server setup goes, it's all pretty straightforward. Sorry about the weird button text discoloration in the screenshots, it's been fixed now.

Multiplayer in action (UI hidden to demonstrate feature). Currently, there isn't much lag clientside, but there is currently a graphical problem where sprites can be drawn on the wrong frame and depth. This is going to fixed before release obviously. You can also choose to play as a female character in single/multiplayer, although that is not shown here.
Another important thing to note about multiplayer is that the way the server is written allows for mods to be easily integrated. Server side mods (MOTD, map rotation, etc) can be used alongside clientside mods (reskins) with ease. Also, any mod that works for singleplayer (custom maps, mods, etc.) can easily be used for multiplayer as long as both the client and server have the mod installed. I am still deciding whether joining a server that has a mod you don't have should install that mod on your client. More than likely it will, but I am hesitant for security reasons.

Arcade Mode

Another massive addition to the game is a mini-campaign mode. It's planned to be about 3-5 hours long. Besides all the basic features of the game being there, additional features such as dialogue, cutscenes, and objectives are also active. As far as story goes, don't expect anything serious. The storyline and writing is purposefully comedic, cliche, and self-aware (to an extent).

Dialogue example!

Music

Not much to say here, but music is actively being worked on and should be ready to be shown in a teaser soon!

Other

Such WIP Gameplay! Rolling is vital to your survival, as it allows you to dodge most attacks.

Some exciting news are also coming up soon, and I can't wait to announce them officially. Make sure to stay tuned and thanks again for checking up on the game's progress!
