    Quote:
    State of Decay is designed to let zombie fans answer the ultimate question: What would you do in the face of the zombie apocalypse?

    The end is here. Human civilization has been annihilated. The few, scattered survivors must band together, rebuilding civilization in a third- person action game packed with sweet guns, fast cars, hand-to-hand combat, and copious amounts of zombie gore. Players choose where to make their stand, designing and fortifying their settlements, performing daring raids for valuable stores of food and ammunition, and rescuing other playable survivors. The open world develops in real-time, shaped by player actions, with content determined by their choices and the ever-increasing zombie threat.

You can get the early access beta on steam right now. While it is buggy it is a lot of fun. They say you need a game pad but you don't actually NEED one, just isn't fully supported yet.

The testers have been putting together the controls on how to use keyboard and mouse. Not as complicated as it seems but it'll get you playing right now if you're interested.
Quote:

Door Control
...never thought id be writing a guide for opening and closing doors....
To open and close a door quietly, simply hold left CTRL and press E
To open a door quickly, simply hold left SHIFT and press E
To break a door open simply gather momentum , keep holding left SHIFT and press E

Searching and Salvaging...
To search an item of interest that's glowing white, simply press and hold the E key, once this is held down you will see the search has begun. You can speed up the search by keeping E held down and pressing left shift to begin searching faster, note this is nosier and may attract unwanted attention.

Once you have searched and you see your inventory on the left and the contents on the item you searched on the right, from here you can use WSAD to move to the selected item, then LEFT click to take and item, once clicked it should then move to your inventory on the left, if you want to put an item back, simply go to your inventory on the left side and RIGHT click to put it back.

You will also see this is a category view system and by default you are in ammo, simply press TAB inside here to take you to the next tab, weapons, first aid e.t.c....

If you want to radio help for whatever reason, simply press the E key on the item and then use LEFT click to activate.

Advanced Fighting Controls
Shift & E = Performs Silent Kill (you have to be crouching, quiet and behind the enemy for this to work) This combination can also finish off an enemy who is laying on the ground.

Hold down shift then press left mouse click performs stronger attack

To add suppressor to the gun, make sure it's in your inventory and selected by using the mouse wheel, then simply press F to add to your weapon. Note some guns need certain silencers / compatibility mode.

When laying on the ground and your being eaten to death and it says press A repeatable to get up, "calmly" hold left RIGHT mouse button down as if you are going to do an EMOTE and repeatable press SPACE for your life! (press it very quickly like you're playing an old 80's game)

A & D = Left and Right
E = Enter / Exit Car
T = Activate/Deactivate Headlights on Car

Note only the mouse moves Camera ((If your mouse is slow to move camera then you can change the speed within Windows by going to control panel / mouse))

When driving at speed, you can also jump out the car by pressing E

Emotes
Cheer = Hold Left Mouse & E
Disagree = Hold Left Mouse & Left Control
Agree = Hold Left Mouse & Space
Taunt = Hold Left Mouse & Q
(its worth noting your character will attack the first time left mouse button is pressed wink.gif

This game is pretty awesome. Here's hoping they give us high resolution textures though because at the moment they're pretty low resolution.
