I will be honest, there's a few alarm bells ringing with this one. Totally random uncited quotes listed in the video, the claim of "Next-Gen Visuals" that honestly look quite dated (Direct X 11.2/Vulkan doesn't make a game visually good), a one man studio and so on. Still, it might just end up being fun. Especially since the developer claims it will end up with a fully voiced campaign.

The developer said this about Linux support:

Secondly, the Linux and Mac support are also experimental, as we have designed the whole game on windows desktop computers, which means the community have been testing it after we have been porting each update. We still release each update at the same time for each os, but expect the best and most stable experience on windows.

The developer says it's been in development for three years already, so it will be interesting to see what they've been able to accomplish in that time.

The game launches on September 29th.

A zombie survival game? Talk about bringing new ideas to the table!

Over use of blue tint used in the game

Really wish this is an option to remove the dark and blue tint of games

It ruins TV and Movies when they use it and now games are infected with it

When I see the games graphics in the video and then the text which pops in, I have to laugh out loud. The screenshots on the shop site don't look better.

This looks like another Asset flipper to me. Thanks, but NO thanks.

Definitely not getting any awards for original ideas, but it would have to suck so much more to ever get close to being the worst zombie survival game on Steam.

It's probably going to participate in the worst game name awards though. Seriously now, how do they even come up with these names? Is there an unspoken of resource where people vote on these?

I'm already sick of shitty survival games.

I agree with a few above.
I swear this looks like an asset flip and that I recognize some of the assets already.

Billboard grass and chunky weapon models are setting off alarm bells. Wonder what engine it's using.
