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…

Report article RSS Feed The Final Countdown

Residents of Muldraugh: this is an update on Knox County situation. Apologies for the radio silence in terms of blogs for the past little while, the team have buried themselves deep inside the 0.2.0 update and rarely been surfacing for air.

Posted by Batsphinx on Feb 2nd, 2012

If you haven’t already discovered it then the update task countdown can be found here. At the time of writing 11 tasks remain, down from a total of 26 when we opened it up to public consideration two and a half weeks ago.

As the countdown ticks down we’ll be releasing a few more screenshots and videos to let you see what’s about to hit our version of zombie-town USA, but in the mean-time we haven’t mentioned the new thirst system in a blog. So if you haven’t already seen it – check out our Just Add Water vid. This demonstrates how characters will now need to fill containers full of water, which will then be drunk automatically as you roam around Muldraugh. The water supply will fail at some point, so it might be wise to stock up…

We’ll post another blog later this week chatting to our composer Zach Beever about the new music that he’s recorded for the update, but in the meantime here’s a few sneak peeks of some of the locations that you’ll be visiting in the expanded map.

Its all about opinion. I would have to play it to decide, but the new lighting and graphic system looks quite nice together from what I see.
