In The Middle Of Zombies from Wabby's Land is a top-down action game about blowing up zombies, with a little survival and RPG-styled elements thrown in.

Currently in development, what I've tested thanks to the developer providing a copy does seem promising. It's an semi open-world game, so you can travel around and mostly do what you want. It already includes a full inventory system, randomized resources, building interactions, a day and night cycle, plenty of Zombies, NPCs to find and trade with, vehicles to repair and drive and the list goes on.

For future versions, they have a reasonably good plan in place already. They will be adding in an XP and level-up system, multiple new weapons and traps, helicopters to pilot, wildlife that might be dangerous, weather effects and more. It's sounding pretty ambitious but if the early version currently available is anything to go by, it could be rather fun when finished.

I've given the developer a bunch of feedback on it, hopefully this is one we can help shape into something truly interesting.

They're planning a Steam release by the end of 2019 and if you buy it on itch.io you will get a Steam key as well as the DRM-free download.

This looks great! I can see myself having a lot of fun with this one.

This is one of those indie devs that you can see slowly building up experience in a few small projects to then tackle a bigger one successfully.

I've got his Survive the Zombies, and it really showed that he built a concept, then a road-map with a limited scope, which he threaded along delivering frequent updates till the end where he wrapped up and moved to a bigger project.

I've made up a new word! It's "vute." Right? It's for games like this that are both violent and cute!

"Vute" purists insist that the violence itself must also be cute for a game to be considered truly "vute," but most folks are ok with a game that looks cute but has non-cute violence also being called "vute." As one guy in Berlin said, "what else are you going to call it?"

Oh, god. There's already "vute" factions. Anyway, wishlisted.
