Zombie Master 2 is a multiplayer RTS/ FPS hybrid utilizing Valve's Source 2013 engine. Players are thrust into the middle of a zombie apocalypse, forced to search the remnants of their world for weapons and equipment in order to remain alive. One player is freed from the weak flesh of his peers. A being of limitless power, he controls the grotesque hordes of undead in a constant battle against what is left of humanity. His name is spoken only in whispers, for fear of drawing his attention. For once his gaze is upon you, the true test begins.


A game pitting the cunning strategy of the Zombie Master against the teamwork and bravery of the humans, ZM2 is two unique gameplay experiences in one.


  • Hunt for weapons scattered across the ruins, including molotov cocktails, rifles, and the beloved shotgun.
  • Objective based gameplay; Players are required to work together in order to accomplish their goals.
  • Use the physics of the Source Engine to construct barricades and accomplish objectives.

Zombie Master

  • RTS gameplay, with an interface tailored for both quick commanding and advanced strategies.
  • Powers to interact with and foil the Humans best plans.
  • Traps and environmental manipulation supplement the already formidable arsenal available to the ZM, allowing him to collapse bridges, douse lights, or release swarms of deadly bees. Anything the mapper dreams of is a possible trap.
  • A variety of zombie types allow ZMs to adapt to any situation, and formulate complex strategies on the fly.

ZM2 2013


At the beginning of every round, there's a chance of a gamemode change happening. How often a gamemode occurs can be changed via console command. We're still thinking of gamemode ideas, and we may scrap one or two of them.
Rush: Shamblers shamble faster!
Outbreak: Resources pool twice as much! Max zombie count is also increased via a convar.
Masters: Four Zombie Masters. Max zombie count is also increased via a convar.
Survival: No primary weapons.


Adobe Flash was used for certain interfaces like the main menu. Round stats are also recorded and displayed at the end of rounds. A leaderboard will display 5 players that have topped specific stats, like most kills, most special kills, most damage dealt, least damage received, most destruction caused.

Steam Greenlight

We have bought access to Greenlight. We also plan to release Zombie Master 2 as a free game. Though we still have plenty to do till we can publish it. We're focused on replacing half, if not, most of the content currently used in the game. We do have a concept page up for now.

Help Wanted

We're looking for character artists for zombies and survivors. Map prop artists to help finish where other ZM2 developers left off as well as design a few original maps. Sound effect artist to replace all of the weapon sfx as well as impact and danger sound effects.

That's all for now. We will be releasing more information on the next version as well as the Greenlight publication soon.

Thanks for reading,
The Zombie Master 2 Development Team

This version of the ZM2 FGD is outdated. But it has left here for all intended purposes.

Can someone please tell me if this version has at least 90% of the mechanics from ZM1? I don't care that much about new features, I just want a stable game :)

Oh, and what about the FGD? Does it work with latest version? Thanks!

Yep that bug is annoying. To fix it:

1. Go into multiplayer options.
2. Then Advanced.
3. Turn off SSAO Post-Process effect.

With regards to the servers, yep you are totally right on that. We need more. I had a weird lag problem trying to join both of the official ones that made the game nearly unplayable.

The gameplay mechanics of Zombie Master 2 still stay true to the original, people here are complaining about the lack of new features added to this sequel. I'm just happy that they didn't completely turn the game upside down and change everything, ZM2 is still ZM1 at heart.

Even though like other people I wish there had been more features (new weapons were an awesome addition to the game though), I'm still really content with ZM2 and it remains a fun game to play.

Given the time between the original and this, I expected much much more.
