Summary

Zombie Master: Reborn combines FPS and RTS experience into one terrifying package. Each round a willing player is chosen to be the Zombie Master. ZM's job is to summon and command zombies, and kill the remaining survivors. The unlucky who didn't get picked, assume the role of a survivor. Their goal is to stay alive and complete the map objectives.

Reviving your favorite FPS/RTS hybrid from the dead

Zombie Master: Reborn is a rebirth of one of the first Source mods, Zombie Master. ZMR aims to build upon the foundation of the original with new features and long overdue bug fixes.

It's that time of the year again. Halloween is around the corner. It's the time of spoopy rattles and zombie themed games desperately trying to stay relevant by posting status updates. Ah yes, good old Halloween never changes...



What we're working on

The quest for new assets continues. But this time some progress have been made! A talented memer brendaymn has been doing some animations, while BurntCornFlakes is arguing on Discord how much the smiley on Mac-10 should wear off. Suffice to say, the things you are about to see are work in progress.

Beta 3

While the rest have been working on the assets, I've been busy optimizing and fixing bugs. Beta 2 was particularly buggy thanks to the large additions. I should have taken a few more weeks to make sure it didn't have these problems that Beta 3 only now fixes. Thankfully, the majority were hotfixed.

Not to say I haven't been working on new things:

Zombie networking optimizations

Note the graph in the middle. Less is better.



Client-side hit detection

Good hit detection is the key to enjoyable survivor experience. Nothing will piss you off more than a shot that missed thanks to stuttering or poor lag compensation. While the lag compensation was fixed during alpha, it will simply not do for us anymore.





Some other fancy new features are: player soft-collisions to put a final nail to griefing, ZM picking priority persist across level changes and player reconnects and a voice menu for survivors (we're in the process of suing the ZPS team for copying this feature).

See rest of the changes here.

Thank you for bringing this back. This was absolutely my favorite mod for forever and I'm glad it's being worked on once more.

Going to be posting some updated shots of all three of the weapons since the images tab hasn't seen some love in awhile.

I tried playing this, but unfortunately the community was too toxic.

The only way this mod is coming back is if the steam page is changed and people start leaving good reviews! I would love to see this mod repopulated, it was so much fun!

Reviews won't affect the chances of the mod coming back and neither will the old Steam page.

Will the steam page replace the one that's currently on Steam or you will create a completely new one?

It most likely will get a new one.

You would be correct, we already purchased a brand new AppID for the new page.
