9/9/2014 - We are in fact (still) working on the sequel! The game and story itself are actually done, we're just working on getting the characters and backgrounds right.

Sorry about the wait everyone, but the next one will definitely be bigger and better. If you want to stay informed though, we update our Facebook page weekly, so like us and stay informed, or just say hi!



Rated 3 / 5 stars

Interesting story and, repeating what everyone else said, great scenery art. Unfortunately, I think the gameplay could have been much better. The map quest was just a a big pixel hunt and I finally used a walkthrough to find the last piece. And in areas where you need to use an item, rather than choosing to use it through dialogue, I think dragging it onto the screen would have worked better. Many of the quests were either way to easy, or they required you to click on everything to find one item. I liked that Zomboy was not a typical zombie, but the other characters felt a bit flat. This game has a lot of promise, and I hope that the sequel has improved gameplay, so maybe I can give it 4 or 5 stars instead of 3.

Beat the game. However had to look at a walkthrough and this game was pretty boring.


Rated 1 / 5 stars

Nice idea, poor execution. The entire journey is boring, no one shows any emotion, looking everywhere for that one item to progress is tiring, and looking again for the next bit is even more so, and there is no real thought put into this. The only good side I have to this is the backgrounds, which do look lovely and they look like there was TIME put into it, unlike everything else. For example, when you click to drag the key around, its fucking gigantic compared to the other items, and keys are supposed to be tiny. All in all, you only get one star for the only bit you spent time on, and nothing else.

Rated 2 / 5 stars

The hand-painted backgrounds were incredible, the animation smooth, and the writing above par.

Unfortunately the gameplay fell short. The quests' objectives were muddled, and often had no effect on the character, or game. Further, it lacked any sense of adventure. As a sentient zombie I hoped, hunt, or run, or just do anything that made me feel like I crave the flesh of humans. Instead I wandered back and forth around an encampment looking for map pieces that had no baring on the character.
Speaking of character, this too was lacking. Not even the main character has a name, and throughout the twelve quests almost no information is divulged about any of the survivors or zomboy.
When the sequel come make sure to develop the character and make the quest lead into something more than just leaving the current area.
