RSS Update: Alpha 0.1.3 is available!

Version Alpha 0.1.3 is now available for download, with new features such as a customizable game mode, changes to food/drink mechanics, hover-over info boxes, and zombie knockback!

Posted by on

Though you can read the complete changelog below, the most important updates are as follows;

A new customizable game mode! You can customize many aspects of the game. Here's a complete list of everything you can customize, to make the game as easy or as hard as you want! Loot rarity, gun rarity, zombie max (spawn cap), zombie spawn rate, zombie speed, zombie health, reload mode (either fast or realistic), and survival needs.

Custom Game Mode Setup

Zombies with their stats maxed in custom mode:

Completely changed how food/drinks work! They're no longer stackable, but you can use them multiple times until they're used up, so it's practical just to carry one bottle of water that you refill. Some items even have a sprite that shows how many uses are left!

Hovering over an item now shows more info! You can hover the mouse over an item in the inventory, in a container, or on the ground to see extra info such as weight, how many bullets in the magazine, what type of ammo, how many uses for a food/drink item, how much hunger/thirst food and drink fill, how full a bucket of water is, etc.

Showing hover, as well as boxed ammo crafting:

Zombies now suffer knockback! They get pushed back when struck with melee (and often bullets), and you can even push them into other zombies to slow them down. Though knockback is minimal, the heavier the weapon the more of an effect it has!
