I've been looking to dive into a bit of retro feel gaming lately... just to change it up a bit

VR has overtaken any need to play regular flat screen games...

I bought this game because i've heard a lot of good things... played for a bit.... pretty damn hard to survive which is awesome... who doesn't like a challenge...

but the amount of detail the creators have put into this game is astonishing!

You can literally do just about anything! No detail has been over looked... everything in the world is not just decoration but functional

After watching several videos on starting out... i think im actually going to enjoy playing this... which is rare for a flat screen game these days... let alone something that reminds me of the original Fall Out...

Its a 3rd person zombie sim... actually it looks like "the sims".. lol

Take a look... Thus far i am impressed for a game thats close to ten years old... apparently it just went through an update and has had a huge jolt of new players

It looks pretty cool. Kind of like a real time Cataclysm Dark Days Ahead with less things. Not gonna lie, I'm a bit biased, I've contributed code to CDDA, it's pretty tough to beat in my eyes as the best zombie survival simulator ever made. It's kind of like the Dwarf Fortress of zombie survival simulators, while Project Zomboid looks like the Rimworld version of zombie simulators. It does look fun though.

I went and gave this one a S&F .
And I usually would not for this type of game.
However , check out "Delivery From the Pain" .

Generally this isn't my kind of game anymore either... this was more like 15-20 years ago i'd grab a game like this...

But admittedly i have a weakness for Deathban games... Just love the idea of having one life and dealing with every action as it might be your last... i played a few minecraft Deathban servers... love every minute of it

Delivery from pain looks too story based for me... graphically it looks pretty good but im thinking its just another shooter...

Zomboid has guns... but they will lead to your death because they're loud

the basic story line is... You're going to die...

even the intro to the game is a black screen with the words.... "this is how you died"

SO its just a matter of surviving... eventually the power goes out... the water stops working... and it all goes bad

You gotta learn to scrounge, farm, fight, hide and flee...

Gonna have a few pops tonight and dig right in...

And apparently Multiplayer is coming with the new build

I guarantee you it has enough building , crafting , etc. to keep one from saying "shooter"
It does have a good storyline and plot .

I love the way how items and tools are not just spread randomly , but actually are at logic spots such as warehouses , storage boxes , hardware stores etc.

Just have to repost on this game...

SO hard... so much detail, and sooo much fun!!

Everything from a minor invasion to 28 days later sprinters coming at you... and you can set the terms of your demise

minor groups of the walking dead... or hords which number in the thousands!!

Nothing is over looked in this game... you can tow a car or a trailer... Light the whole city on fire!

Camp out in the woods and trap/fish... diving into the city where the dead roam to grab essentials...

Build a base from the scrounged items you've collected... even Farm inside said base...

and theres Sickly Mods...

this game has it all... and once multiplayer hits.... Wow!!

Seriously... Isometric fans...

You gotta check this game out
