|An indie game worth supporting. The developers have already been through|
a horror story nearly the equal of the one they are trying to tell, just to get this made.
|Even with great planning and plenty of supplies, when things go bad in Zomboid, they go BAD.|
|Managing people's respect for you in moments of crisis looks like it will be key.|
Both of these games have taken the "zombie as target practice" and "blast your way to freedom" out of the equation, and I like this more thoughtful approach to the genre. Not that I don't enjoy shooting zombies in the games that do it best, but I've played that already. The personal horror of making terrible decisions in order to survive, wondering if everyone hates you or fears you because of what you did... Zombie films are about people, not zombies, and I'll be happy to play a few different takes on games developed with that in mind.
