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…
Getting tired of the Resident Evil style approach to zombie games? Want a little less over-the-top zombie battles and a little more zombie survival? Then this is the zombie game you've always been waiting for!
Project Zomboid delivers the terrifying atmosphere of a zombie apocalypse perfectly. The soundtrack and lighting, combined with the horrific groans of the undead, literally make you too scared to go outside at night. (Or will you risk it? Your supplies are running dangerously low...) Brilliant stuff.
It's all about the realism here. Explore, scavenge, sleep, eat and avoid attracting zombie hordes' attention in order to stay alive for as long as you can! It's a thrilling adventure from the hopeful start to your inevitable demise, and you'll always want to start all over again and try new tactics to survive longer.
10/10 for originality, replayability, soundtrack, fun factor, atmosphere, balanced realism, and awesome graphical style. A must-have indie game at a very reasonable price.
One of the most entertaining games I've played in a long while!
Here are some of the things that I like so much:
- The atmosphere of the game - even though it's an isometric game with pixel art, it makes me feel tense as if I'm playing a 1st person survival/shooter
- The difficulty - it's quite challenging to survive the horde and I really like it
- The horrific masses of zombies
- The passion that's been put into the development. This is something you notice straight away and it makes you smile every time you log in :)
