Zpocalypse: Survival

Description

Zpocalypse: Survival is a game about exploration and survival in a gritty post-nuclear zombie apocalypse setting. Your job is to help a group of survivors attempt to eke out an existence and build a place for themselves in a brutal world. You will need to scavenge for supplies and food, find and fortify a shelter, recruit other survivors to your cause, defend your people, and attempt to grow and expand, facing challenges every step of the way.

History

We started initial design in March 2013 with only two members. Over the next 5 months we added an additional 4 team members and started to really dig into development for our early Pre=Alpha demo. We unveiled the Pre=Alpha demo at PAX East 2014 and ran a Kickstarter around the same time. The Kickstarter was cancelled and we dug into development once again, now ready to return to Kickstarter and get fully funded! (Sadly we didn't get funded and had to table this project until proper funding can be allocated. Time will tell...)

Features

  • The Morale and Humanity System – survivors' personalities, their likes and dislikes matter! Contend with paranoia, aggressiveness, fear, irrationality, and a host of other gameplay-meaningful characteristics.
  • A sandbox world with full 3D environments and characters that you can interact with in multiple ways.
  • Real-time combat with tactical pause allows you to think strategically when the situation warrants it.
  • Classic CRPG and roguelike features, including meaningful permadeath, procedural environments, and incredible replayability.
  • A deep game world featuring hundreds of unique playable character backgrounds such as the cop, the athlete, the white-collar worker and more.
  • Select your starting gear, gender, appearance, and more with our custom character creation.
  • Base building and defense – build a place to survive, rest and defend against the threats that come at night. Manage your survivors and their activities while you are out exploring.
