Man, there are so many cool-looking video games on Kickstarter these days! Here’s a sneak peek at one called Confederate Express, which PC Gamer describes as “Futurama and The Postman mixed with a dose of The Walking Dead.” Sign me up! The game appears to have an exploration/survival bent to it, combined with a funky pixellated isometric point of view that’s reminiscent of something like Syndicate Plus. I love it! Click here to check out the Kickstarter page for the game (and help reach the next funding stretch goals like “Destructible Environment” and “Mech Vehicles”!). Oh, and here’s a plot synopsis, if you’re interested:
Year 2064. The greatest invention has been discovered: a Homeostasis Chip – or simply, “h1 chip” – allowed human body to be operated via small computer that essentially sustains perfect health indefinitely, ultimately granting immortality to anyone who installs it. However, it had a small side effect: your body keeps living even after it’s death. That led to 2068’s h1 chip worldwide ban and an accidental global zombie epidemic. This is where you come in! Your role might be minor – just a small package delivery company called “Confederate Express” – but it is very important nevertheless! Having your package lost in transit can be a huge hassle, especially when there are hordes of zombies walking outside. Accidents happen, and sometimes the inevitable loss occurs, but don’t worry! Your crew is being completely outsourced by a disposable staff of ex-cons, gladly provided to you by the local penitentiary.
