Zombie Grinder is the debut game of TwinDrills, an indie game development duo made up of Tim 'Infini' Leonard and Jordan 'Jordizzle' Chewning. It's a multi-platform (windows, mac, Linux!) (also Free!) cooperative multiplayer arcade game, reminiscent in style and gameplay of retro games like 'Zombies Ate My Neighbors' and 'Super Smash TV!', but with the added benefit of some newer game mechanics - achievements, ranking, player-customization, rpg style stats and so forth. The game sports a variety of different game modes, from co-operative 'campaign' style levels, to wave maps and even the classic 'pvp' style game modes - deathmatch, capture the 'bag' and so forth. All of these mods are bristling with a variety of weapons and items, all lovingly displayed in Jordan's classic quirky pixel-art style.
Tell your really hip Mac friends that you want to play a zombie game with them!

A wondrous day, indeed, fans! Tim has finished up the first build for Mac OS! This introduces cross-platform zombie grinding!!! He's just pushed version 204, and we've got direct downloads to Moddb.com (windows) as well as the world premier Moddb.com (Mac) build!
We've done a bit of internal testing (1 round on each map) and while a few bugs are existent, the game is very much playable cross-platform :D (the round we played, all 3 of us were literally on 3 different continents)
Speaking on cross-platform development, our Linux build is getting closer to release! Tim has informed me the only real hurdle at the moment is the audio plugin not playing nicely with Linux... We'll keep you posted though! This Mac Build is a very big milestone for us though, and we hope you'll all spread the news and celebrate with us!
Have fun, and happy grinding!
Love, Jordan (and Tim too... I guess...)
EDIT: Linux too!
