Hi everyone, Will here, the Project Zomboid writer-guy. I won’t beat around the bush. The Indie Stone have just suffered a major set-back. The Newcastle flat where Lemmy and Binky live and work was burgled last night, and so far the clearest things taken are two computers and Lemmy’s credit card.

Project Zomboid was regularly backed up from machine to machine, but rarely – sadly and infuriatingly – externally. We have lost an awful lot of work and (as you will have seen if you follow him on twitter: Theindiestone.com) members of our team were more than emotional.
This will clearly severely delay the next update, which was very near completion. I personally only just finished my work on it yesterday (one of the final things on the ‘to-do’ list) and had it ready for input
Project Zomboid, however, will come back stronger. I just wanted to come onto Desura to let everyone know that this is a set-back and not a death-knell. If anything we will come back stronger, and with a better game.
During this time we will clearly be asking for the understanding and patience of our community. We are gutted, we are despondent and – most of all – we are sorry that this has thrown yet another bump into the
road towards PZ completion. We should have learned more about barricading the doors it seems...
