Why the sudden resurrection? After some thought, I figured DE would be best released in an unfinished state, rather than not being released at all. So yes, that does mean a lot of content we had originally planned will not make it into the final release, such as arcade, free roam, multiplayer, and a lengthy campaign mode.
One of the biggest things that stopped me from finishing DE last year was incompatibility on newer operating systems, but recently, that has been fixed and is no longer an issue. Another big reason was because a lack of a team. In the start, DE has around eight active members. As the years passed, the numbers dropped drastically - down to only two people. At the time, it seemed impossible to finish everything that we had planned, so I stupidly pulled the plug on the entire thing. In the past month it's just been me and Gamefan74 (the main programmer) finishing off what we can.
With that being said, DE is complete... with the exception of the game modes I listed above. If interest proves, and people enjoy DE, I might release arcade, and a few unfinished goodies into a DLC of some sort after the release.
Dead Epidemic is now scheduled to be released on March 26th, 2011, or even earlier depending on how quick beta testing goes. View more screenshots in our gallery. Stay tuned for more updates and media.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Dead Epidemic. We love games like Land Of The Dead that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
