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.

Right click on project zomboid and choose "version" then you'll see that the full version is an option and the demo is an option. Left click the full version and desura should start downloading it.

If theres updates it will automatically show a box saying theres ingame updates. Usually I apply the update by left clicking on the DESURA icon in the right hand corner Then in status it will show a number other then (0). Whenever I hovered on the Status I would see the Project Zomboid updates in there and just apply them. I hope this helps out the people wondering how to get the updates here. ~Chuck

There will be a definite increase in game quality given a little more completion of their first campaign line (good tutorial by the way) and with a few more recipes. I look forward to the general fixing of barricades and perhaps a little more survivor interaction than killing one another. (By the way, I am still disturbed by how easily other survivors tend to die around high action areas. They don't even survive the first axe thwack, even if it is an accident...) :P

Also; I anticipate a lovely change of priority and pace when the lights do finally flicker out for good. That will grant this game much in the way of originality. After all, priorities change once the situation is altered...

You dont survive an axe "thwack" either. Thats why NPCS are dangerous.

I survived an accidental axe swing once. But I don't think my character had any hopes in reproducing afterwards.

AKA: I got an axe to the groin according to the body condition. :<

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.
