Looks like a really fun XBOX Arcade game coming out in a few months. Focuses on building a base, recruiting as many survivors as possible, and the survival mechanics look pretty tight.

Very pumped for this game. I've been following the Undead Labs forum for a few months now.

Wow. I've never heard of this before. But it looks like it's going to give me a reason to do something with my 360 other than streaming Netflix. Thanks for posting!

I just stumbled on this one and can't wait to check it out. I don't have an XBox, so I'm guessing I'll be waiting for a few months for the PC port. Still, it looks incredible.

Game finally release a launch date. It will be coming out in June. Just saw a never video trailer for the game and it seems like they polished up a lot of the fighting movement (which is good as it seemed pretty choppy originally)

I cant embed to save my live, as i forget how to do it after a few days (dammitt!!!) but heres a link to the new trailer

And June is the Xbox release date. Those of us on PC are likely to have to wait longer still. Ah well.

IGN called it potentially the best Xbox Arcade game ever. I'm getting really pumped for this one.

I can't believe I missed this thread! I just found out about this game last night because it was one of the featured items on the XBOX home thing (whatever it is called).

It looks great--it may be the best new game in a long time. 8-)

came out today for 20 bucks on xbox live. IGN rates it a 8.9 despite being buggy. Seems like lag is the major issue, sounds like the SOD group is in the process of fixing it hopefully.

No, i have not played it yet. I will when i get a chance though!

Downloaded this overnight - looks ridiculously deep for $20.

Only messed around for a few minutes this morning but yeah it looks like it'll deliver what it's billed as.

A lot of people are saying the tutorial isn't nearly thorough enough so hit the Undead Labs forums if you are stuck or confused.

I played it all night while On Call (yep, paid to play a video game.) It mostly has a few FPS jumps, a few visiual anomalies, and some collision glitches. (Characters faces and stuff going through walls) other than that, Its a pretty awesome game. I'd pay more than $20 for it. The game is a steal and a lot of fun.

FOr $20 this game is fantastic. I have been waiting for years for a sandbox/rpg/survival zombie shooter.

Same here, hadn't heard of the game until I saw it on the main screen. Just downloaded it, but have to wait till this weekend for some serious play time. Stupid job, friends, and relationships.

Really enjoying this game so far. Ten minutes in and I rounded up a squirrel rifle and a .22 revolver.

Melee is ridiculously strong given the game's sound mechanics. I'm not sure there's a meaningful advantage to using firearms yet aside from the better TTK and even at that, you're far better off jumping in a car.

I'm not very far though.

I just wish you can change the aim speed with firearms... its really easy to swing passed your target cause of the sensitivity.

Has anyone figured out how to build things yet? I’m at the church and there are complaints about there not being enough beds, so I want to add a “dormitory” or whatever. I went out and found building materials, and I see a thing on the interface that deals with building things, but I don’t see any way to say “Build this.” Could it be that I need *more* building materials and that it just hasn’t become available yet for that reason?

I love this game, but it could really use some type of manual to explain some of these things.

Also, I’m getting *really* freakin’ frustrated at how quickly melee weapons wear out and how hard it is to find replacements.
Anyway, any advice would be appreciated. I Googled this and didn’t find anything helpful. If someone has a link that walks through the Interface and explains how it all works, that would be awesome.

Open the character tab, scroll over to the home page (will show a map of your home with green blocks and blank blocks) select a green block to upgrade something you already have. An empty one to build something you don't. Workshops fix broken weapons, have your character with broken stuff stay at home and play another character for a bit and they'll fix their stuff

Depending on the popularity/success of this game, it will be going MMO. This was the test platform (originally coded Class3) the MMO verson is currently coded Class4. Be basically the same gave with Online multi-player (with some extra stuff added.)

head over to there website and go to the forums. they talk about Class4 there some.
