DoubleBear Productions, an indie developer composed of Bethesda and Troika vets, has finally revealed what was only known as "ZRPG" up until now: Dead State. It's an RPG set in the fictional town of Splendid, TX, which is in the grips of a full-on zombie apocalypse. As one might expect, the object is to keep one's self off the breakfast, brunch, lunch, lupper, supper and evening snack menus.

Players operate out of a local school, which serves as a hub and sanctuary from the horrors that have befallen the rural community. From here, you strike out into the wilds, hunting down supplies and (hopefully) other survivors, but can also use resources to beef up your pad. But, as you've seen in countless zombie films and other works of fiction, not every survivor is a friend -- or sane, for that matter.



Combat will be turn-based and the player will be able to issue commands to the whole group or individuals. For more on the design of the game, check out DoubleBear's FAQ page. The game is fueled by the Age of Decadence engine and will be available for the PC, initially only through digital distribution services.

I'm actually looking forward to seeing if this will turn out to be a good game, i really like indie developers. I've always wanted to play a decent zombie apocalypse game. I'd like this to be online too, but i doubt it will be.

PS, make sure you read the FAQ page on their website, it really sounds quite fun imo.

you had me until you said "turn-based strategy"... still, i like the concept and their vision of survival but, i think it would work better as a dungeon crawler RPG, rather than a JRPG concept... but, this might be the zombie game that might suck me back into the genre... sounds fun to me... a ton more so than dead nation...

so, now there's two network games i am looking forward too next year... this and "from dust"...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

I really liked the whole idea of the game until I read that part.
Buzz kill man.
Game companies these days, they make something so right, then fuck it up with some out-there idea they have...
How the hell do you turn-base fight Zombies? I hate turn-based. Its slow, its boring.

checkers... chess is way over his head laugh.gif...

yea i love the concept... going out scavenging for food and weapons and shit... finding other survivors and using a group of able-bodied people to go out and get these things... being surrounded or leaving a man behind... but come on, how can you fit turn-based mechanics in this?? it'll take away the fear factor... that's why i love fallout 3 so much, VATS only has to play a small part of the action, you can still feel the sense of urgency and fear when walking through hallways hearing the enemy on the other side, hoping he didn't hear you first...

i really hope this isn't as turn-based as we are thinking because, this sounds like the ultimate survival game...
