“We have one chance. Find a strong place, and band together. Build our defenses. Gather supplies. Arm ourselves for the fight  and save as many souls as we can. Take back our town, our lives, our world from the hungry dark.

That wave will break over this town like a tsunami and take the last of us with them… unless we fight back.”

Fort Zombie
is a focused-scope, casual RPG title in which the game world revolves around a single building – your fort – and the mission specific chunks of the small town that surrounds it. Instead of a major city or a vast countryside, player’s focus their efforts on building up a single structure, finding and training survivors, and venturing out into town looking for supplies.

Targeted directly at the after-work gamer, with gameplay similar to Dungeon Master meets Fallout, players take control of a particular building in town, and begin gathering the supplies and survivors needed to build it up by day and help defend it by night.

Features

  • Choose one of three buildings – the school, the prison, and the police station – as your Fort Zombie, each one with its own strengths and weaknesses!
  • Real time movement and combat keep the tensions level high while trying to achieve objectives before your characters run out of ammunition, food, or luck! 
  • Dozens of zombies, some with special abilities derived from their half-remembered lives before becoming undead! 
  • Piety, Indiana, a variable 3D town, created using Kerberos’ mix-and-match tile system, for maximum replayability. PhysX® engine adds to the mayhem!
  • Dozens of town locations to search (stores, restaurants, gas stations, ruins, homes) and countless items to find and use in building up The Fort or building up your group characters (food, fuel, generators, tools, guns, etc.) 
  • “Collectible” NPC survivor-families give players surprising new abilities, but you have to find them all first!

Great idea, terrible execution. I'm all for indie game developers and I have a HIGH tolerance for lack of polish, but that is not the issue with this game. I played it at a friend's house and thank god I did, ten dollars gets you browser game level quality, if that.

The aiming in the game is completely broken. Sometimes your character will shoot at random locations in the room or sky for seemingly no reason until you jiggle the mouse. Melee barely works ever, zombies teleport through obstacles and get stuck in walls, and the entire game suffers from the weirdest difficulty curve ever. The beginning of the game is about luck. Sometimes you spawn next to two zombies with rifles who proceed to immediately murder you. Sometimes you just walk to the base. From that point on, it's about surviving until your skills get high enough to compensate for the broken game mechanics.

Bottom line, the problem is glaring bugs that should never escape even a beta test of two competent people. Terrible framerates and a beautiful idea done nowhere near the right amount of justice.

I agree. Since this isn't a mod, hence you can't just give it a try, a demo is essential to include here. Please upload one if you can!
Also, if this were multiplayer, if could be a killer game for LAN parties. Food for thought? :)

Zombies Run, you can only run for a little while, untill your forced to walk, and then they will get you. It lags a little, and is not much fun. The idea, is very good. The game, is not so much... Might as well torrent it: http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/5858074/Fort_Zombie_V1.07_(Latest)_(SandBox_Zombie_Game__Unrestricted)

Shame on you dude. this goes against what this whole community is about.
Desura isn't about cheaping out and getting games for free. It's about providing an accessible platform to modders and less corporate-giant-like developers to reach an audience that would appreciate them, while at the same time making it easy to get these games without elaborate activations and DRM schemes.

If you don't like the game that's one thing, but that doesn't automatically entitle you to get it for free, let alone promote the idea to others. Grow some self-respect; the world doesn't owe you.

I've tried it before and uh it sucks to say it like that. First you need to get to the base and well that's hard enough. He's useless at aming anything, he get's tired after 10 secs of running and then he's super slow so
yeah it's really really hard.
