Project Zomboid; Your wife requires additional pillows

Postby Terminator541 » Sat Jul 02, 2011 7:23 pm

Copy-pasted from the official site:

THE GIST

Project Zomboid is a Zombie Survival RPG. Here are some of its planned features:
Retro-isometric style with plenty of zombie insides thrown in for good measure.
A massive city and the surrounding areas to traverse, explore and loot.
Open-ended sandbox world – survival is your only goal, and we’re sorry to tell you… you WILL die eventually.
Get infected. How will you spend your final days? Will you have a heroic moment of self-sacrifice, or end up chewing your best friend’s throat out?
Meet other survivors who you can join forces with, trade with, undertake missions for, or fight with for resources.
Loot, salvage, and build what you need to survive the apocalypse, from food and medical supplies, to weapons, even just booze to help get you through the nights.
Advanced item crafting allows you to use looted items to build weapons, traps, defenses, and many other things to help you survive.
Character progression. Learn skills and perks to help your character face the challenges of survival.
Starvation, illness, loneliness, depression, alcoholism, drug addiction, suicide, insanity, trust issues. There’s more to zombie survival than shooting zombie heads off.
Join your friends and survive the apocalypse together in co-op multiplayer.
The world changes the longer you survive; power plants fail, plunging the city into darkness and making batteries and tinned food prized commodities. The army rolls into the streets to perform ‘clean up operations’ and other gamechanging events occur the longer you survive.
Play in your browser, or stand-alone, on PC, Mac and Linux.
It will be released Minecraft style, where there will be continual updates adding new features, weapons, game-play and locations.
It is available here and there will be a tech demo coming soon.
The tech demo will just show a fraction of the planned features and is merely a taste of what is to come. We will continue developing after this point, feasibly for years and years, improving and expanding the game.
We have an active community that helps drive development, which can be found here.

THE FEATURES
Survive

Surviving isn’t just about blowing zombie’s heads off. Depression, starvation, trust issues, loneliness, illness, insanity. These are just some of the things you have to deal with in Project Zomboid.

FIRST OF ALL- YOU WILL DIE
You’re trapped in a quarantined city with a million zombies. There is no escape. There is no cure. The end is coming, so get used to it.

Project Zomboid is about the choices you make, and how you choose to live your last days on Earth. As a hero who goes out in a moment of heroic self-sacrifice to save a defenseless family? Or a callous coward who saves his own skin and leaves his companions for dead?

It’s these choices, and the story you weave in your adventure. That is what Project Zomboid is all about. Not saving the world with some pie in the sky cure, or flying away in a helicopter where everything will probably be okay. This is the apocalypse.

THE WORLD
As Project Zomboid develops, we will be adding new areas to the world, so that eventually you will have a huge city and surrounding suburbs and countryside to explore. Any building can be used as a safehouse, and any building can be looted for equipment to help you survive. You can hunt out weapons at the local gun shop, anti-biotics at the pharmacy, and food at the local market. But at a pinch raiding people’s fridges, sheds and medicine cabinets will keep you going.

THE STORY
Right now, the outside world knows nothing about the zombie threat. The government has quarantined the city, and cut off all communication with the outside world. The news is rife with speculation about the events that are occurring in the city borders. Soon they will know, and wish they didn’t. The quarantine can’t hold forever, and just outside the exclusion zone lies the still operational local power plant. Once that goes, batteries and canned food will be worth more than their weight in gold.

As you play Project Zomboid, the longer you survive, the game-world changes around you as the apocalypse develops. You can keep up on current events by turning on a radio, and those events will affect your situation as time progresses. You may even be able to influence them.

THE PEOPLE
Surviving is easier when you have company. As well as (planned future) friends joining you in co-op multiplayer to help you survive, you can meet thousands of diverse characters that you can trade with, join forces with, battle for resources, betray, help, or work for. Diverse randomly generated quests such as helping them find loved ones, finding them equipment or sentimental mementos to escorting them through the more infected areas of town.

In your group, you must deal with the different personalities and relationships, which can sometimes lead to deadly friction. And what to do with that clumsy kid who keeps leaving doors open and making way too much noise? Give him a talking to, or ask him to accompany you on a salvage mission and blowing his brains out down the street, before returning and claiming to the others he got eaten by zombies? It’s up to you how you keep people safe, and what lengths you will go to.

SELF IMPROVEMENT
There are all manner of skills and perks the player can develop to help them survive. 50% unique and innovative, 50% ripped off other titles, our unique and innovative skills and perks systems keep character progression interesting and avoids the dull increasing of numerical values, without sacrificing depth.

Learn skills from other survivors for everything from shotgun operation to cooking, medical training, carpentry and orienteering, that can then be increased as your character progresses and provide unique bonuses as they develop.

Pick a profession for your character which bestows unique perks to them, and pick up further perks as you play by completing hidden ‘achievement’ style criteria, meaning your character can be trained up differently depending on your play style and preferences of weapons and tactics.

MIND AND BODY
You can sustain injuries to any part of your body, from a broken leg to a concussion. These will need to be bandaged, set, cauterized or otherwise dealt with to keep you going. Illness and disease is also a real possibility, so better bury those corpses in the garden or set light to them before you catch something, because the hospital’s a long way away!

But it’s not just physical injuries that you can be inflicted with. The zombie apocalypse is hard to deal with, and it’s easy to sink into depression, or worse. You must try and keep your morales high, your stress down, and take some time for the little things to keep you and your companions sane. A hot shower, a cooked meal or a bit of music will go a long way.

If people are at the end of their rope, they may become withdrawn, fight, cry, or even stick a gun in their mouth and pull the trigger (which makes a lot of noise!). Paranoia can fool the senses and outright insanity isn’t easy to come back from. Cigarettes, alcohol and drugs can keep the darkness at bay, but rely on them too much and you may get addicted.
===========================================================================================

This is an awesome game. I've played the Demo many times, and god, it's **** good. There's a free public demo that you can try out. I've played it a couple of times and it's hard to play. This is by far one of the most realistic, well thought and well planned zombie games I've ever played.
It plans to update it's game the way MineCraft does, and so far it's going pretty good.

What I really like about this game is how serious it is. The demo starts off ((SPOILER ALERT)) with you and your wife in a room. You're wife has suffered terrible terrible injuries and is bleeding badly. She apologizes for **** up and all that ****. This part of the tutorial (yes, dynamic!) requires you to give her painkillers found in the bathroom, and bandages to stop her from bleeding. The 'bandages' can be crafted with a sheet in the wardrobe. After applying the bandages to her, you must go to the back yard and retrieve three items from the shed; A hammer, nails, and planks. With these, equip your hammer in your equipment slot (the big circle at the top left) and place the barricades by taking the planks and clicking on the doors and windows. Barricading windows so far does only one thing, which is blocking sight.

After barricading the whole place, you will need to get food. Of course the game will force you to rest first. The next day, you will have to go to the house east to your safe house and retrieve food. There you will always find 3 soup cans, tomatoes, and carrots. With all this, go back home to the kitchen and take the pot and can opener out of a cabinet. Put the pot, can opener and soup in your crafting slot to create soup in a pot. Put the soup in the oven and turn the oven on. This point, the radio will start working and you can go upstairs to listen to what it is broadcasting. After the broadcast, a looter (who looks alot like Francis from L4D) will come into your house with a shotgun. Usually you want to hide in your bathroom and wait until he enters the room your wife is in. They will begin dialogue, and this is when you can go into the room, with Francis unaware, and bonk him over the head with your hammer, killing him.

This is where the tutorial ends, and you're free to do whatever you want.

Extract all.

How the hell do you bandage yourself, run, and...idk the tutorial didn't cover a few things.

I kept clicking on myself and my bedsheets wouldn't wrap.

To eat, you gotta click on the food and then click on the heart on the top left! To heal, you must first open the health box by clicking on the heart icon, then apply bandages to whatever is glowing red.

To run the game, just run, or double-click the file named ProjectZomboid.bat

Bought so soon? I've been playing for days and still haven't bought it :D

I'm actually waiting to see if they're going to make this available for purchase via PayPal or even better, Steam!
