Duruk May 4 2011, 12:29pm replied:

Thanks for your comments. About the detail. There are a couple of reasons why the detail is low.
1) As stated in the background information the focus is on the road, because a) the viewing distance is extremely far so detail is sparse on the outer areas. b) We tested it a couple of times in spinning classes and experienced that after a couple of minutes the participants as they get more tired they enter in a tunnel vision and only watch the road and the immediate surroundings.
2) Well the spinning instructor had to leave the team and since it was his idea, its hard to continue alone.
3) You really need to look at the video while your on a home-trainer or spinning byce and not as a level designers point of view. Of course if I made this as a level I would have completely made it different
4) Production time was aimed at 3 months from scratch to 40-50 minute DVD video. That ment that I had to create a speed mapping method. The camera work and timing is the hardest work.
5) We had almost no budget so if we had we could add more variation to the objects.

Im not sure yet. But from what I think it will be that you can either go solo or join up with other survivors in order to surive the ongoing world.
Basically its a world with respawn zombies so there will be no ending.

From my experience with LeftForDead grouping up can be annoying when inexperienced (teens) shoot you in the back amongst the confusing. So I would rather play the game solo or with a trusted group of players. So I would stand a better chance for survival. I rather get eaten by a zombie then get shoot by a teen ;-)
