Spoiler warning: you're going to die. If you're lucky, you'll get to choose how. Torn apart by the undead? A knife in the back? Starvation? How about wrapping your lips around the gun holding your last precious bullet and kissing the world goodbye? Project Zomboid isn't about saving the day. It's about survival, and the decisions you make when you have nothing to lose but your braaaaaaains.
Even as zombies overtake Nazis as gaming's favourite punching bag, Project Zomboid is one of the most exciting indie games on the horizon. The simple graphics hide a fiendish mix of RPG, strategy and even a slice of The Sims, built on emergent action rather than scripted campaigns.
We've moved away from the action focus of most zombie games to explore other areas, such as dealing with relationships, keeping morale high, depression, paranoia and insanity, explains Chris Simpson, one quarter of developers The Indie Stone.
