Project Zomboid is an open-ended zombie-infested sandbox. It asks one simple question – how will you die? Whether surviving in Knox County free-roam or controlling Indie Stone mascot Baldspot in his quest to save his injured wife Kate – death is always a certainty. Quite how long you manage to put it off is another matter…
Another week of testing in the can. As anyone who's followed all the video action this week will know, it feels really close to that inevitable point where we say 'oh what the hell' and release. But not today, I'm afraid.

Before we start a link dump of the many hours of RC3 footage, we will discuss all of the current issues in the build, only one of which completely forbid a release. Little of this Mondoid will likely be news for forum regulars, I'm afraid, but this is for everyone else. Hopefully the streams and videos are doing more than a Mondoid ever could, anyway.Excluding more trivial stuff, we still have a few more serious problems to resolve.
Only the first (and, out of vanity, possibly the last) bugs are stopping us from considering a release, but obviously we could not consider a Desura release until the second is fixed too. Desura members with intel cards may not be too happy to find Desura auto-updating them to oblivion. We should point out if we do do a forum release prior to Desura, damned if we're falling into the same trap as before. We'll get the intel stuff sorted, and get on Desura as soon as possible. It's not fair how long those lovely people have had to wait for an auto-updatable version.So that's the situation.
We're so close we can smell it, but there's that one last hill to climb. We're overjoyed at how the videos and streams have been recieved, and moreso were even surprised ourselves how much it's come together since testing began. It also only goes to show we made the right move holding it in testing as we did, as comparing the 24th build with the 1st would be quite eye opening (maybe we can do that for fun post release?)So when? We know some rumours were circulating that it could have been today. Well sadly there's no way we could comply with that, as much as we'd loved to have. Next week's Mondoid? It's possible. NOTE: It's possible, not yes. It could be the week after. But yep, we're really down to talking about these kinds of time-frames now.
This is super exciting for us, and the last couple of weeks have been wonderful after a very long year. To see people's reactions to the new builds has reminded us why we're doing this and what all the work is for. It's a happy time.So now the update is out the way, let's get onto the video link dump!
We would recommend giving all these lovely peoples a subscribe, a follow, or whatever the equivalent is for twitch as they are all wonderfully nice and entertaining to watch. A word of warning though: There is a LOT of footage here, so firstly you're guaranteed to see a lot of moonwalking zombies, or pieces of the universe mysteriously vanishing. You'll also see a lot of Zomboid RC3 content laid bare. You may want to save it all as a surprise, or you may want to watch every minute of it. It's your call.
There are probably other streamers or Youtubers we've forgotten, not because they weren't wonderful but because, erm, there's been a fair few of them. Apologies if so: let us know and we'll add them to the list.
