Being a Zombie in the 80s isn't easy and that's what Surviving the Humans is all about, starring a rather misunderstood undead fellow.

Surprised Monkey Studio say to expect a story that simply hasn't been told before, with Cooper being a Zombie who is not of the murderous brain-eating sort they're often portrayed as. You follow Cooper through the story as they learn what it really means to be a Zombie as they try to change how humans think about them. It's currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter where the team is trying to raise $10,000 to finish it.

With the gameplay of Surviving the Humans, the developer is trying to make something a little different and not be "just another graphic adventure". They're working with the Unity game engine with a release planned across Linux, macOS and Windows mentioning that they "built an architecture for the game from scratch".

Main Features:

  • You have to collect items, use them in the correct places to solve the puzzles and help Cooper in this new adventure.
  • Hundreds of interactive objects and a few easter eggs with funny descriptions.
  • Mini-games to test your skills.
  • A suspenseful and one-of-a-kind story.
  • Multiple characters, locations, and items.

If interested you can back it on Kickstarter.

My brain reads "misunderstood" on the post title and then "By Liam..." and that's enough for it to trigger "Misunderstood" by Liam Gallagher all day in my head... Well, one more game to the steam wishlist... Thank you Liam, live forever.
