no, actually i think it sounds like a load of bull.
they talk about how fun its going to be all the time, and how they are going to take all the boring stuff out.
Thats exactly what left 4 dead did. they took out the boring parts. The boring parts are when zombies arent attacking and thats when the plot gets advanced for more zombies to attack.
Do they really expect people to build forts together, cause spending a couple overs hammering nails into things making barriers sounds boring. Also what happens after you build your fort, you and 40 of your friends go out and go on a zombie raid and kill the toughest zombie evah for + 40 zombie killing gear. This game is asking to fail, and fail hard.
They have nothing more than this is what game we want to make, and thats just a piece of paper.
Zombie movies arent popular because of the zombies, they are popular because of what they represent, our fears, ourselves, society. None of that makes it into video games.
Left 4 Dead was a horrible zombie game. It was fun, but making the zombies realistic was a fail. We all know zombies can't run or up pipes or jump incredible distances, and the only way to kill them is destroying the brain. Anyone who knows anything about zombies at least knows that.
And you honestly think they're going to make you spend hours hammering nails for a fort? Have you ever played a game where building something happened in real time? Of course they're not stupid enough to do that. You may be able to expand on your fort whenever the heck you want, but that's up to you.
They're trying to make the game realistic. In a zombie apocalypse, you're fighting for survival every day, and I'm sure there won't be a lack of action. If you're one of those gamers who doesn't care for the game unless you just blow stuff up 24/7, I'm sorry, you have your opinion, move on.
I would consider myself a zombie enthusiast, so yes, I go to the zombie movies for the zombies.
My only question for the game devs would be: Is there an end? Or once you clear a certain city of the infestation could you go to a new city or something and try to clear the infestation? I mean, it's not lacking replayability since I'm sure they'll make changing scenarios and whatnot, but I want to know how much you'll be able to expand, and if the zombies will be in realistic amounts or if they'll just keep spawning from around a corner somewhere. Also, would there be quests or anything? Or NPCs of any kind besides the zombies?
