  • Summary: 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.

    Review from September 2013: Project Zomboid is actually the only game I would call a Zombie survival simulator today. Games like Dead Island 2 are interesting but I would probably not call the survival games, and for sure I wouldn't call them survival simulators. Minecraft is really an interesting game with lots and lots of atmosphere and genius gameplay but's lacking the dark, haunted mood and realistic scenario for a real zombie game. DayZ is interesting but it's too much of a death match shooter, lacking ambitious crafting and sheltering. Project Zomboid manages it to combine all these worlds. Interesting sandbox gameplay, open ended dramaturgy, haunting atmosphere, crafting and sheltering. Also by now I didn't encounter any serious bugs in my version. In fact I didn't encounter ANY bugs beneath some graphic glitches during the loading screen by now. Expand

    This is a phenomenal game - it's just as stressful and challenging as I would hope a survival horror game would be. The isometric rendering turned me off at first, but I have high hopes for the next version of the game that gets released. I've never been a fan of Resident Evil or Left 4 Dead, but this zombie game has me hooked. I wish there was the ability to save games, though! Expand

    This game is one of the best zombie survival games ever. Take Dead island, add thirst, hunger, bleeding, broken bones, pain, and even boredom mechanics and put them into the game. despite 2D graphics, this game will keep you playing, and usually being eaten. Expand

    It is in alpha right now, so expect bugs. However, even with the bugs that I have encountered, this game is awesome. The map you are able to explore is huge. It takes an extremely long time to explore every area. This game has a bunch of new features and bug fixes coming. I would give it a 9 if it weren't for just one annoying bug in the game. Some leniency is to be had for the game being still in the early development stage still. However, I bought the game knowing this since it was advertised as such with a big banner saying "Early Access." The game has already paid for itself and is very enjoyable in its current state. Some are experiencing game stopping bugs and problems getting the game to run and keep running. I feel for them as I have experienced the same issue with another previously purchased game. Hopefully those bugs and crashes will be sorted out quickly once the game progresses more with development. Expand

    Project Zomboid is an isometric zombie survival and crafting game, developed by Indie Stone. It was recently released on to Steam Early Access, along with the multi-player component of the game.

    Project Zomboid is a new look at zombie survival games, literally, deciding to use the more uncommon isometric camera angle. Already I was sceptical, as a lot of zombie games rely on the action to stop the gameplay from sending you to sleep. I am happy to say, for this game the isometric view is nothing but a positive. This isn’t the normal action zombie game at all, with a slow pace the game is almost like playing a twisted version of The Sims.

    The first thing that struck me as I played this is the player Moodle system. This is a system that tells you how the player is in a number of small intuitive emoticons, placed on the right hand side of the screen. You’ll notice I’ve used the word intuitive twice to describe that, because that really is the only way to do it justice. It completely solves the problem DayZ has with its similar food and temperature system. It really is such a simple system, and it does the job completely, and really adds to the game in my opinion, increasing the ‘Twisted Sims’ feeling.

    Terrible. Primitive graphics, interface, game play. I've seen highschool kids design a better game in a week. This is just a money grab. Check out "7 Days to Die" or "Rust" instead. Expand
