Here’s one to watch for, zombie fans! Doublebear Productions is working on a post-zombie-apocalypse survival RPG called Dead State! Not much has been released about this project yet, but what we do know is that it’s meant to be an exploration of an open-ended world after the dead have risen, as opposed to many other zombie-themed games which focus primarily on shooting the bastards. Here’s a blurb from the description on the official site:
Dead State is a compelling, high-tension RPG set at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse – a deadly illness is rampaging through the world, turning those infected into the walking dead. As society is beginning to fall apart, the player must organize a scant handful of allies, working on fortifying a shelter, scouting for food and supplies, making uncertain alliances with others, and attempting to hold together a group as humanity teeters on the brink of extinction. And although the zombies lurk as an ever present threat, the biggest obstacle to the player may just be other humans with the same goal: survival at any cost.
Now does that sound awesome or what? This is one to watch for, people!
