Zombie Master In Short

Zombie Master is a multiplayer Half-Life 2 modification, centred around a zombie-apocalypse, which throws all but one player in the shoes of human survivors. Pitched against a relentless tide of rotting flesh, they must scavenge for weaponry and equipment just to stay alive. But that one player, chosen randomly at the beginning of the round, is not bound by mortal restraints.

To speak his name is to invite the wrath of hell - but most call him the 'Zombie Master'. He is nigh omnipotent. His invisible hand controls the legions of undead like puppets on strings; slowly closing the net on the humans while they run to and fro like rats in a maze.

Features
Human team:

* A wide range of weapons to scavenge such as shotguns, molotov cocktails, rifles and more
* A number of challenging objectives that encourage players to team up and work together
* The ability to interact with the environment to build barricades and carry objects

Zombie Master:

* Real Time Strategy gameplay; create and command your own undead horde
* A wide variation of zombie units encourages the ZM to adopt complex tactics
* Environmental "manipulates" allow the ZM to interact with the world in devilish ways
* Mysterious powers let the ZM manifest his power in a more direct fashion... for a price

I'm beginning to wonder....since the latest update was 2 years ago.
Is this mod still in development?

Good question.

The developers haven't posted any news or updates in quite a while (kind of a disappointment) but that's not too much to worry about.

Since the game is on STEAM now, it's become a little more popular and attracted a bit of the 'modder community', so even though the developers aren't posting anything new any more, new maps and such are coming out created by players all of the time.

It might not be top-notch like real developers could make... But you'll still get the new maps and modes you're looking for.

Angry lawyer YEARS ago made this game. At first totally pumped about this mod, blah blah blah, but the community friggen skyrocketed around it. Left 4 dead was announced, all the cool zombie games were almost here, so the community really "urged" faster and faster updates. Lawyer tried to jump ship a few times. Finally i think after patch 3.0? he finally took off.

Its a great game, Lawyer is my hero. But no he REALLY does not want to update this mod anymore.

They are however currently cranking out some updates on Zombie Master 2 which looks really promising. :D so check that out!

heh edit: totally off, it was patch 1.2.0 lol..
