19865 Project Zomboid
So, I'm probably going to end up buying this, and I was just wondering whether there's anyone here that plays it? Partly because I'm worried about it being early access despite having been released in November 2013, and also because it's all about 'dat co-op and no one I have on Steam owns it.

Sure, I love Zomboid. It was in alpha before it was ever Early Access on Steam so don't worry about that. It's just another indie title worked on by three people and a dog that's perpetually in development. The dev team even lost a few months of work when they were burgled by some jock druggie.

Haven't played it since December though; kind of lose enthusiasm when your beloved character dies. Would post screenshot of my record if I wasn't on my phone, but it's 2 months, 4 days, 13 hours.

Alright, I got bit pretty hard by a couple of Christmas sale early access buys, which I felt like a total dick about more or less the following day.

And is the development team Scotch or did he piss a Gaelic curse word into their carpet or something?

I feel your pain. It keeps dying off only to keep coming back.

I don't think that's fair on Zomboid, it was around before the current spate of dull zombie clones.

And how long is that? L4D came out way back in '08. The Walking Dead came to TV in 2010. After that, the zombie niche grew into a full on popular culture phenomenon. That's when hipsters like me who liked zombies before it was cool started to turn our noses up at the idea.

The problem is that zombies are like nazis these days- sometimes they are even zombie nazis, that's how bad it's got- in that they are used as just a generic enemy that everyone can safely kill, maim and dismember without feeling a shred of guilt. Along the way, writers and creators have utterly forgotten what it was that made reanimated corpses such a compelling antagonist, and there's no need to even try rediscover what that was because there will always be a legion of cunts who buy anything vaguely zombie related regardless.

I remember seeing Nazi zombies in some vaguely pornographic b-movie back in the late nineties and it must have been an old film even then. Lots of bush.

Well according to Wikipaedo:
>The game was first released in April 25th, 2011 as tech demo

I guess I'm not really being precise when I say it started 'before the zombie glut', what I mean is it was around before I started booting up Steam and seeing yet another one on the Store page and reacting with revulsion.

Anyway, I thought it was an urge to copy DayZ that has caused a plethora of zombie games, and as we know that started in 2012.
