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…

Hello all, so this week we have an announcement to make that we’re sure a few people suspected might happen one day or another. At the moment the PZ team is working with modder extrordinaire TurboTuTone to bring the incredible Erosion mod into the base game!

To those who are not aware of it, the mod is incredible, and simulates the wear and tear of the world over time, with cracks appearing in walls and floors. Grass, vines and trees growing over urban areas as nature reclaims the planet. It also will bring seasons into the game, with snow in the winter, brown trees and grass in autumn, and flowers blooming in summer.

In the process we will be expanding the system, and TurboTuTone has already been working on some awesome new stuff such as soil moisture maps, with Mash drawing new trees, bushes and grasses for the various seasons and map areas!

Here are a few screenshots, please note these are WIP:


The winter will also be getting some love, though we have no screenshots of those yet! Mash intends to do extra stuff such as leaves on the floor for autumn, and grass coming through cracks in concrete and all other good stuff!

So a big big thanks to TurboTuTone for allowing us and helping us bring a more evolving dynamic world to Project Zomboid, and we can’t wait to see what he does in future!

Build 28

As you may be aware, last week we released a test build of 28 onto the password protected Steam branch I Will Backup My Save, which can be found by following the instructions here.

Easy and Romain have been hammering away at a bunch of fixes to the most commonly encountered issues in the test build, and we’re planning on shipping it out to official soon. There may be another hotfix to the IWBUMS branch before that happened, but fingers crossed it won’t be long now!

Work on the map, vehicles and NPCs continues apace, nothing specific to report except as to say they are going very well!

Later folks! <3

Im with you on this m8 they should at least introduce a save feature to the older version of hte game Ive bought it bu not really been able to play because of the lack of a save function and considering the time its been between the last update and now they should at least have added this feature.

Hello people. For those who wants to see some gameplay or are just patiently waiting for the new RC3 update, here is one gameplay video of Project Zomboid RC2 -

I'm a brand new gaming commentator and I will be making a whole lot more Project Zomboid gameplay episodes through the entire alpha phase and beyond.

Ratings and meaningful feedback are all appreciated.

Rediculous length of time since last update.

Very, very poor update schedule in comparison to other alpha-funded titles.

Avoid this one till the developers get their act together.

if you look at the articals posts( right there above the comment section) you will see that they are currently adding a lot of new content.

if you go to the website/forum you can download the newer (unstable) rc2 update.

be patcient this game is worth the megar £5 you have paid.

Yes, the "newer" build you mention is 6 months old.

It is easy to like a game, and want to provide positive feedback as often as possible.

But please, be transparent - it is one of the many things the indie scene has in it's favour.

they seem to be doing a pretty good job to me, yea the game gets boring kinda fast but thats only because it's in Alpha and theres quite a bit more to come.

Poser Zombie Fanboys?

Anyways, you aren't being forced to play it and if you wasted your own money and time on this game, that is your own fault. There is also a demo if you were actually dumb enough to buy it without even knowing what it is about.

The game is also in development so if you were "lied to" about features, then they aren't probably in yet unless you are another one of the people whining how they haven't got their update yet.

Also, Neo Scavenger has a whole different play style to it, and I don't know how you compare them. One game does not own a type of enemy, feature or even play style(if it were same).

How about you shove it since I'm likely talking about you, someone who speaks without subject matter. Your just as pretentious as these developers of this game. You make statements that might sound good, but are not based on anything valid. No ******* duh you ******* I'm not being forced to play, I was supporting something I thought would turn out well.

I got Project Zomboid in very Alpha stages, that alone makes most of your argument mute., you stupid ****. Extreme, maybe dumb, derpshit, whatever all intended to insult yeah? Why split hairs.

On your last point, it's the survival aspect I would compare in Project Zomboid to Neo Scavenger. In Project Zombiod it just feels like a gimmic after a while, to say the least boring.

This is one of those examples of how great indie alpha funding can be... Project Zomboid is a real work of love fueled by a great community and great interaction between developers and fans. Even if it's just in the earliest stages the colossal potential it has for modding alone makes this a game full of potential. As for the game itself it has great music, and awesome atmosphere... It's a great ride for all the nostalgic gamers that fondly remember isometric games. And the structure of this game…

I enjoyed this game for a while, but due to the constant "patch coming soon" but never actually coming, im giving up on this game for now, maybe the game will finally be slightly updated within a year.
