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 varietyof 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.

We Got Greenlit!

Oh hey, look!

Hi everybody! Jordan here with a little bit of a news break for Zombie Grinder! I know it's been like 4,000 years since I've posted news, as Tim and I have been incredibly busy at our 9-5's, but I've got some fabulous news!


That's right! After an over-a-year-long campaign, your support has helped us catch Valve's attention enough to justify a release on Steam! I know I speak for everybody who has contributed content to the game when I say that we thank ALL of your for your relentless support through the good times, and the bad!

With this unprecedented event comes some pretty amazing news! More updates than I had actually thought we would do! To be honest Tim and I were roadmapping an over-all end-of-the-line update that would introduce a single-player mode and the online side of things would be Peer-to-Peer. We still have other games we want to eventually work on, but with Zombie Grinder being released on Steam, we have a newfound vigor to polish it up and make sure it's a complete experience in and of itself!

Since finding this news out, I've completed 8 new hats, and 6 new weapons. This next content patch which may be a ways off should be very interesting!!

I'm still trying to wrap my head around this whole situation, as I honestly never expected it to happen, and I know Tim's in an even crazier spot, but I just thought I'd let y'all know that we appreciate everything you've all done! From just playing the game, to pitching ideas for new weapons.

Obviously a bunch of stuff is coming, and while I can't exactly put a date on it, Tim and I are shooting for a full release before Summer of next year to co-incide with our Steam debut :)

Thanks again for all your support!

Much love,

It's the ONE-OF-A-KIND HUB-Date*!

disclaimer: HUB will not date you, and thinks you're kind of a slob. Also new guns, achievements, and all kinds of new stuff!

New content on it's way, how would you like it?

We've got a ton of new stuff we plan to add, but aren't 100% sure if we should trickle it in over time, or make one humongous content update once it's...

Merry Christmas, Grinders!

There technically is single player...

If you're lonely and don't like people, you could set up your own server and play by yourself.

What if you exited the tutorial without actually doing it?
As in, what if you skipped the tutorial but didn't finish it, can you like go back to it?

Could you guys remove the damn tutorial level? It's ridiculous, and because my computer is so low-grade, I can't even take the one zombie down in the tutorial level. >_<

Do you think modding support could be added
im really excited to play this game (installing at 95% :D)
or is modding support added because it would be fun to play this with friends when having a vehicle mod is added with a custom map

Game currently already supports custom maps being uploaded to the games, different games modes and other such stuff.

Adding vehicles might be somewhat tricky though lol
