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

People shouldn't be rushing the developers. I mean, it's really rude since making them work harder than they already are is bad for the upcoming updates, players, and themselves. Plus, instead of worrying about this game, why not play other games?

When it comes to the release on RC3. What i wonder is... does the full version show up here on desura and replace the pre alpha tech? It will be a hassle otherwise...

Either you didn't google search to find out what an Alpha was, or you set your expectations too high. What you bought was essentially an Alpha Tech Demo. It is not the completed product yet. Throwing money at it does not magically make it finished. Your 8 dollars did not single handedly fund the development of the game. Just take a chill pill man, the devs are hard at work to produce us an awesome game, its in all our best interests to just hang out and see what happens. In the future I recommend you research a product before you make a purchase so that for one, you won't stress over it, and secondly the community won't think you are just being a whiny brat.

yep I go with the guy halororor since he is right, it has been for a year and a half and I dont friggin think that an update, not too large would take that much, I mean seriously, a single update that's taking that much of a time, and though if it was an alpha tech demo at least put a save on it, it's just pointless buying something that has so small possibilities, and you tell me to chill, if you think that they are doing something really big why do they stick with mods, at least make stuff that's big and would actually make fellow buyers happy, because 8 dollars is big if you converted it here, it is an awsome game but it the company concentrates on releasing unnessecary updates like this person just got into the group, at least make some updates that would let many people be attracted at

They've been working on a single update for a year and a half now. How long do you think it's going to take them to finish the entire game?

I know the next update is apparently really big and adds a lot to the the game, but I mean, come on. We're going on two years and the game is still *technically* pre-alpha.

Anybody who thinks there is problem with the game, build a better one, and faster, then YOU can reap the rewards. But until that happens let them build a GOOD game, not a quick release game like most companys are doing these days. Games have gone WAY downhill, the reason? Pushing out games before they are done! So chill and wait.. If they stop updating us, then be wary, untill then STFU!

yeah yeah, an update that takes 1 year, and the game doesn't have problems, no no, the company has for releasing ****** updates like mod here mod there, at least concentrate in updating the game to it's fullest, look at minecraft for example, they have very many people buying the game since people know that they "DO NOT" give ****** updates, they always release information that people ACTUALLY CARE.

There's a major difference between taking your time to ensure quality, and taking forever. At this rate, we'll have v1.0 in ten years.

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.
