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…

Its not just Zombies that will kill but the environment. You can build and fortify to keep the horde at bay or always be on the move. Fight the cold during winter. Farm to spend less time making risky supply runs. Make to much noise with firearms and zombies will be attracted to your location, forming groups organically making it difficult to fight them off or pass by unnoticed. Over exert yourself and you might not be able to make a run for it when it counts. Depression, starvation, loneliness, illness, insanity, a lethal bite...

Q: What to expect from v1? Whats the ETA?

Why a Blue Mondoid? Perhaps it’s because you’ll let out a cuss-word in surprise and delight at the treats in-store for you below? Maybe Zombies turn blue, as well as green, sometimes? Perhaps, just perhaps, it’s because the guy writing this really likes the songs of New Order. Who can say?

EXCITING ANIMATION VIDEO

Over to Lemmy for a quick description of what you’ll see in our latest, long-awaited, animations video.

“This is still WIP, and is just a demo of a few new things in the new animation system. General running will be separate from a sprint ability, which gives you a boost to speed but quickly tires you, lowers your ability to manoeuvre and increases a risk of a fall or collision.”

“Characters will have much more physical presence in the world, and inertia and change of speed is now a factor with regard to animation. This will also allow us to branch off different ramifications given the character’s mental and physical state. Panicked survivors who are not looking where they are going may run into problems (quite literally) while unfit, clumsy or undexterous characters may perform actions slower, or be more likely to mess up, fall or perhaps fail to scale a fence at an inopportune time.”

TUTORIAL RETURNS

Mondoiders with keen memories might remember that may remember back in the days of Build 25 there was talk of a Tutorial that would teach the most basic of basics to new survivors. A script was written and initial code was tapped in – but then tasks elsewhere diverted our attention and the poor thing was left on the shelf for a while. Left alone that is… until a brave Frenchman called Romain ‘RJ’ Dron found it, blew the dust off and finished it like the dreamy gallic hero he is!

Now a part of Build 32, the tutorial is an introduction to the mechanics and ambience of Project Zomboid – and should be quite fun for established players to check out too as there’s some fun forced-feeding of rotten foodstuffs along the way. We’ve been sure to write it so it complements the more narrative tutorials of Kate and Baldspot, when they return, who’ll be more concerned with ‘advanced’ gameplay. This tutorial is very much aimed at making new players feel less confused in their very first couple of minutes of gameplay.

TURBO AND WILL ADVENTURES

Okay, so slight annoyance time. The coders have left Writer Will [that’s me, hi] in the dust and he’s not comfortable with his radio and TV spreadsheet going into Build 32 as a WIP. He needs extra time to polish, proof and be sure the multi-channel coverage of simultaneous events is watertight. So, sorry about that one.

In ‘positive spin’ news, however, this does mean that players will be getting the entire radio system when it comes to Build 33 – incorporating all of Turbo’s player-to-player transmission system brought over from his ApCom mod.

Turbo is simultaneously working on a system for those who’d like to customise their safehouses a little – letting you rotate and move (via your inventory) certain items of furniture, paintings, items and vegetation. More of which we’re sure you’ll hear a lot more about after Build 32 is released and the build-up to 33 begins. [Although seeing as a lot of the groundwork for all of the above has already been laid, it presumably won’t be a hugely long wait as far as PZ updates go].

OTHER STUFF

In the background mappers continue to set out the foundations of Louisville, EP’s doing stuff with zombie population management that’ll make you tingly and we’ve also got various other cool things we won’t tell you about until they’re a smidge closer. All cool stuff. Have a lovely week everyone!

This week’s Featured Image is Lenged91’s ‘Pride and Joy’ safehouse. God bless her, and all those who cower within. Would you like to receive weekly updates on Project Zomboid? How about every Monday or, as the cooler kids say, ‘Mondoid’? Follow this link for voluntary enlistment.

Yeah like the others I cant wait for the next update. Ive put many real time hours into 0.20 r2. Somthing like 40+ hours it feels like. Prob more... I cant aim the pistol very well, unless they point blank. Havent found the shotgun but I did hear it used by another survivor, even though I havent seen any at all. I know that 0.20 r2.5 the guns are broken, and i did see more survivors in that version. Id also like to see broken down cars on the various roads and highway. Siphen gas from tanks for molotovs. Search trunks for supplies, weapons. (tire iron new weapon) Able to sleep in the backseat if need be. Very risky but able to sheet up the windows. If you have enough supplies can just sit in a car on the highway till a horde completly walks by.

When this is version 1.0 it's going to be the best indie game of all time. I feel it. Checked out the demo 3 days ago and game exceeds my expectations. They seem to know what they're doing and progressing along the right way. I know it's still alpha and all, but i bought it for the pure reason of supporting the developers. Even without expectation it's an enjoyable game even in it's alpha stage. Big thanks to the developers. And please developers, I know everybody want this game to be released soon, please take your time and do it the right way, dont rush it.
One question: i know too many people commented about how they listen to their community and their opinions on how to progress the game, so is there a web site or forum for it? I want to contribute with my own opinions.

They are adding a huge update all at once. It's supposed to have a huge new map and many many more features. Plus they had some set backs and what not. Honestly, if you can't wait for an update, mod it yourself. But there is an update coming, you just gotta wait.

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.
