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?

Project Zomboid the amazingly moddable, zombie infested creative sandbox has just released another standout feature for all you budding architects of the apocalypse.

The new creative mode in build 33 gives survivors the option to build their own houses, forts or even towns and cities with a innovative and simple to use editor, coupled with the ability to join forces and build with your online friends, you will never be alone in your creative endeavors again.

Here's what the devs have to say about build 33s release.


Creative Mode is something we first experimented with in the dim and distant past, but came back to mind when we were looking at the speed of our own map production and the tools that we use. The Louisville map we’re building is very ambitious so, alongside EasyPickins’ awesome existing mapping systems, we started to think about ways we could populate our world more quickly.


Furthermore, Creative Mode works completely in online multiplayer, so players can join forces to build an entire town on their server – before using it as a fun and engaging place to die from zombies. Split screen support isn’t currently coded, but will certainly be something we look into as we refine the system.

In terms of Build 33 – the first version of Creative Mode will cover only the essentials: containing basic house construction, furniture population, landscaping and so on. As we roll it out further, however, we’ll provide additional tools that will let you create neat road systems, sidewalks, gardens, fences, levels of erosion and all that fun stuff.

A stand out comment from the developers is the possibility in linking all user created maps so they are linked into one huge zombie infested world created by the players for the players.


Then if all servers have their own unique maps, who’s to say we couldn’t see about giving them an option to have their borders connected one day? With Build 33 the Zomboid infection will be easier to spread than ever before. Exciting times!

Don't forget you can also share your creations on modDB and indieDB to get even more exposure for your custom maps, mods and creations, so why not add yours today.

You can read the full release on the Project Zomboid Dev blog here.

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 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.
