    Nookrium has a video preview of Nearly Dead, which is a game inspired by Project Zomboid and Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead. The game features pretty much what you'd expect, inventory, crafting, zombies, skills, demons, wood planks, co-op, cabbages and mushrooms. It'll eventually be for sale in Early Access per the Steam page or you can grab the open alpha from Itch.io. There's also a Kickstarter page with the first goal met.


    The main character of the game doesn't have to be human. In ND, an anthropomorphic creature can be a main character or a companion. Wait! Do they have to be humanoid?

    In fact, ND plans to be designed to give you the ability to play as other living creatures like horses, cows, and mice.​

    Uhhh.. You're kind of losing me there with the furry stuff. That said, I really do like the graphics and the interactivity with the game world. The more I can interact with the world, the better.

    I don't mind the presentation too much. The main problem with it is that it might be a little too "cutesy" for the setting involved there.

    As for it being too much like PZ, I'd consider that a bonus if they tossed the control system of PZ and implimented a control scheme that was way more intuitive. I really, really, really hate the control scheme of PZ. I really enjoy everything else about it for the most part, but the controls keep me away from it. That said, if it's just PZ with 2D graphics and furries, I totally agree with you. There is no point. Although warpig might like playing a catgirl.

    I still really like seeing how you can interact with things, break things down, and so on. I really want more RPGs to allow me to do things with tables, chairs, barrels, etc. rather than just being there for background scenery and obstacles.

    It looks like the cute version of Darkwood.

    I'd love to see a survival game also giving the option of designing one's own furniture. It'd just be cosmetic shit, sure, but it'd scratch the carpenter's itch in some of us.

    Another zombie survival game? What is this, 2015 all over again?

    That being said, it's nice to see a kickstarter project with legs. Why can't one of these games have functional companion AI?

    The Survivalist games have followers. You can use them to make a town and recruit them as needed in to your party. That said, it was interesting that Project Zomboid was talking about having NPCs you could find and recruit if you didn't kill them and they didn't kill you, but that never materialized.
