BRIIIIAAAAAAANS!

Development Info - posted by Edward_R_Murrow on Thu 6 August 2009, 23:07:05

First off, yes, the title was intentional. Second off, DoubleBear's secret project has been announced to be about zombies. A zombie based RPG to be more specific.
Was hoping to save this for a rainy day, but it is cloudy here in Seattle today, so here we go. As the speculators have correctly guessed, yes, DoubleBear’s first game is indeed a Zombie RPG, which we have fondly referred to as a ZRPG internally. Before people start running in all kinds of directions with that, here’s what I will confirm:

-Set during the breakdown of society as emergence of zombies causes widespread panic and disorder.

-Slow, shambling zombies. Spreads like a virus/bite transmission. No, you are not a zombie, that would be stupid.

-Serious examination of a national crisis or natural disaster. Humans and a lack of order are a bigger threat than the undead. Think Hurricane Katrina, Children of Men, Dawn of the Dead NOT Resident Evil, Return of the Living Dead, zombie shooter-type games.

-Game is about survival. Scavenging resources, exploring the area, dealing with other survivors, and managing a “shelter” of sorts are the main focus of the game. More on this later.

-Game is open-ended. There are characters and events that could happen, but the story depends on where you go, what you do, and who you meet. Of course, there’s a lot more to this and we'll go into more details as time goes on.
Sounds pretty sweet. I'm looking forward to a more serious take on what is typically a campy as all hell (sub)genre as well as an RPG with a serious focus on survival. Hopefully a mix between Realms of Arkania and King of Dragon Pass...with a side of zombies.
