ZombieMod takes a unique approach on the Zombie Apocalypse by putting it in the perspective of a military commander, not a survivor. Since it is 2 years after the first infections, resistance on the east coast is organized, resulting in battles rather than small groups fighting for survival.

The past week has been incredibly tough for me, but I feel the community deserves to know what is happening.

Posted by on

Dearest fans,This update is not a happy one, but it is one that I feel must be done. Please bear with me.This past weekend, my best friend, avid video game enthusiast and supporter of ZombieMod, Kowski, left this world in circumstances I do not wish to discuss. I have been struggling to regain a sense of normalcy after his leaving, so I have been doing my best to attempt to celebrate his life and be with my friends. John was such an amazing person, and he always believed that ZombieMod would be completed and an amazing product upon completion. He and I discussed the mod often, with him giving me ideas and me bouncing ideas off of him, and we even play tested it in its earliest forms since I was always so proud to show him what I had accomplished. Whenever a new model was put in the game, he would be the first person I showed it to. John and I did the alpha footage gameplay video, which was enjoyed by so many people, not only because of what was shown but because of his personality and how we played together.I feel that it is only fitting to dedicate the mod to John and to reach completion so that wherever he is, he can have the satisfaction of knowing that he was right. I miss you so much buddy, rest in peace.- burtondrummerNY

I'm so sorry for your loss. Josh sounds like a great guy. I will speak for everyone in saying, take your time. If there is one thing more important than a mod, its the developers. We all understand.

On a more personal note, if you need help with the mod, anything I can do, I will. Feel free to contact me.

Good luck buddy and stay strong for all of us, and you.

The support from the community is amazing, thank you so much. He wouldn't want us to be sad about his passing but rather be happy that we knew him. But now that I've dedicated the mod, I have to see it through to completion!

Sorry man take your time. I can't imagine losing a friend that close to you. I hope it becomes easier to celebrate the life he lived and I know he will always be remembered. Good Luck to you. Take care wish we the community could be there for you. Much Love!-CalmHudson

p.s. I saw the Alpha footage. He was a funny guy. Just know that this isn't as much of a loss as it is a gain for you. When you lose someone they aren't there in person but they become part of you. You will always remember them and I know whatever decisions you make you will think of him and just the thought of him will help your decision. That's what I did when my grandfather past. Take it easy

Sorry for your loss.

Please excuse me if I am inappropriate, but could you honor Kowski with a sort of command unit or small reference so that his contribution to the project will not be forgotten?
