Project Zomboid Brings a Minecraft-style Release to Zombie Survival Games
Zombie apocalypse games aren’t anything new, but one indie developer is trying to bring a little freshness to the genre by adopting a release and payment style similar to another game you may have heard of – Minecraft.
Project Zomboid, currently under development by a duo calling themselves Lemmy and Binky, is a zombie survival RPG. Originally planned to be secret right now, Project Zomboid has been revealed because of what the developers are calling “imminent money death.”
In light of the lack of funds, the pair has decided to release the game for free initially and then follow up with content updates for the folks who donate to the cause, just like Notch did for Minecraft.
The game sounds quite interesting, as it’s slated to include the ability to play in a browser or with a downloadable stand-alone, real-time day and night lighting, a crafting system, AI survivors, and much more. All of the info, as well as the ability to donate and secure your place in the burgeoning community, can be found on the game’s website.
