So I’m making a sequel to my top down zombie shooter They Do Not Die. it is being made primarily for PS3 but there will also be a PC version and there may potentially be a Wii port of it later.
This is just a very early build of it but so far the game already features a truly massive procedurally generated city that is populated by human survivors and zombies that you can shoot.
One thing that I have working already that I’m really happy with is the fact that you (the player) are not treated special by the zombie AI. They will gladly ignore you if there is another human that is closer to them. There is something really cool about walking down a street and seeing people being herded by zombies.
There is collision detection that makes you bump into other people and prevents you from walking on water but there isn’t any yet for the building walls.
You are the orange circle, human survivors are pink and zombies are green. I know that not everybody likes them but the arrow circles will always be the default appearance for people in the game. But I will quickly put together some kind of a re skinned version if there are any color blind or partially color blind players that are finding it difficult to differentiate between them and there might eventually be built in support for alternate skins.
I’ll be alternating between working on this and The Unmapped Forest.
Left analog stick = Move
Right analog stick = Aim
R1 = Shoot

I want to give the game a subtitle but I haven’t decided what it should be yet. Anyone who suggests a name that I use will win something. The prize is also undecided. You will probably get an NPC named after you or your name somewhere in the credits.
