About

Zombie Legacy is a rich campaign game with a unique twist – each hero character has a detailed background, chosen by the player, that customizes and develops the play experience through the legacy campaign. This character creation and ability progression gives you a feeling of attachment to your hero and greater immersion in the game.

The game features a branching story which unfolds based on meaningful choices by the players’ that also directly affect the player’s personal story and progression. This is achieved through motivation cards. These cards explore the dynamic between the players in the group by reflecting the real life tension between altruism and self preservation that you might feel during a Zombie apocalypse.

Combat is fast, vicious and deadly. Each encounter can offer up everything from finding a new weapon through to stumbling into overwhelming odds that threaten your survival. Of course, as a legacy game combat can ultimately lead to the permanent injury or death of each hero, so will you be cautious or gung ho? How will that affect your objectives and the other members of your group? Can you be trusted? Can they?

Risks and challenges

There are risks inherent in any project, but given our background in running global operations and our experience of project management in both creative and technical industries, we have taken steps to mitigate those risks:

- We have invested significantly in our game to reduce the risk to backers, for example:

- the art is almost complete, subject to any changes that might come up during the course of this campaign from backer feedback.

- the game has been extensively playtested and demoed at numerous conventions (Kublacon,Pacificon, Gobblecon, Dundracon, Pax South and SXSW)

- we are working with a well known reputable manufacturer

- we are working with well known fulfillment and logistics partners rather than doing it ourselves.

If issues come up and we encounter a bump in the road, we'll keep you informed.
