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

This is an awsome game soooo they are slow at adding anything but its still fun. You can do somany things you can make a great bace. Or you can move around znd make different baces. You can live on the edge by using a shotgun as much as possible. You can play it safe and Use more Close range things. You can live your Years in game time.

Lazy ? i think u should add untalented and depressed too. It's a lie to say someone still believe in this game, i don't know who u are guys, that post the same "can't wait for the update" "continue your amazing job etc" u must be family related or retards, don't know.. This game was buzzed while Minecraft was becoming the classic we all know now.. I mean years ago.. And they NEVER released anything but this crappy alpha version called project zomboid, very promissing, but sadly it was all they could do, because they don't know how to MAKE A GAME, and keep people interested in their project.
They told their community all sorts of bullshits, stolen things, voodoo charms affecting the development etc.. closing all the forums on their site because the entire community was getting mad at them.. Few months later, i saw an interview of one of the developpers, and well, it looks like he's still in his puberty, he can't handle the pressure, ******** his pants and complaining about the way they manage their project, good excuses SIR, but the thing is you havent DONE ANYTHING this year.
And to the people talking of others new demos on their forums.. well, i didn't want, but i tried it.. and frankly, i really hope they didn't put more than a week in adding the few new features..
The 3d is absolutely not an evolution, looks like they don't know where to go..
Still having enormous framerate issues, the core gameplay didn't evolve a bit, the items are still very limited, u cant craft anything new, zombie's AI is really a joke, and i don't know what to say.. well i'm done with it now, u'll never hear from me, but PEOPLE, please DON'T BUY THIS ****, THEY DON't DESERVE YOUR MONEY, they will buy beers and weed, and make a line of code in a year.

There is one solution to your issue, GET SOME FREAKING PATIENCE! You must have some serious gaming problems if you go ape-**** on one game cuz they havent come out with an update. And also, its not like when you buy something your supposed to give all your trust in to the developers for constant updates. Not just that, but for you to have to say a few offensive words that arent necessary. I think your just mad cuz you think you wasted your money, but hey, not everyone thinks like you, and i bet most of the people that bought this game liked it and are okay with waiting for the next update whenever it comes out. Its not our fault that you didnt like it as much or have problems with patience or have other issues. Besides, if your not going to support, then just dont say anything. Let people do what they want with their money, just how you did with your own.

Everyone is entitled to there own opinion, all you do is assume like a small minded child, cry more ignorant cretin, creating false logic in an attempt to justify your fractured perception of reality, classic, you mad?

DoxDread Jan 5 2013, 5:35pm replied:

what if everyones assumptions are their own opinion? if you think of it, everyones lifes are matter of opinion, but then we should question our own instincts, since we're born, our instinct gives us a small amount of what is good or bad, and that stays with us for the rest of our lives in our subconscious. How do you know whos logic is false? Maybe mines is just an opinion, but will be changed someday maybe? maybe your reality is nothing but opinion. and who are you to call mad? maybe someones "fractured" reality can bring a better life style than whatever your reality is. Either way, your reality is your conscious, mines is my own, and what is fractured is your opinion, just how i could call your reality fractured *** well. But hey, i dont mind arguing, i love it, freedom of speech. 'murica!!!

yeah me too, sadly some people cant be supportive, instead they give their negative opinion (which is fine, freedom of speech blablabla) but i choose to support small game companies, just how susanbickham said "Everyone is entitled to there own opinion" well this is my opinion.

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.
