Zombie Teacher has a very hard working dev team comprised of a single person... My name is Adil, i'm a 25 year old high school science teacher currently working in east London.
I've been a gamer since the age of 3 and my favorite console is the Sega megadrive (genesis). I spent countless hours kicking ass in streets of rage and many more mastering the speed of a small anthropomorphize hedgehog. video games have been part of my life for many years and its an art form that I'll always love.
I started edgy games exactly 1.5 years ago and have been passionately working on zombie teacher since then. I started the game with no knowledge of programming or game design and have learnt much along the way. growing up with an older brother meant a lot of split screen gaming so having a co-op mode in zombie teacher is something i'm really excited about. Lets talk on twitter! :)

I’ve been a huge fan of kickstarter for a long time now. Sure it hasn't treated me all too great in the past (second times a charm!) but for me, the sense of community and collaboration is what makes kickstarter so appealing. For as long as I’ve been working on Zombie Teacher, it’s been an isolated experience. Being able to discuss potential ideas and work alongside other gamers is something I cannot wait for. As far as I’m concerned, every contributor is a new team member!
For the last 6 months I've been working on the game full-time. It's honestly been a dream come true yet sadly, now I've hit a bit of wall. I need your help to get Zombie Teacher to the finish line!
I've worked everything out down to a T, if the funding goal is met Zombie Teacher will be made as I always dreamed it would be. (Any additional funding and stretch goals met will lead to a few crazy ideas coming off the drawing board and into the game!)
If the most awesome of things should happen and we surpass Zombie Teacher's initial goal, we can aim for these 4 stretch goals! Each adds something unique and special and is outlined below:
STRETCH GOAL 1: £3300
Adds the "Around the World" set of stages, 5 unique countries and cultures (chosen by you!) captured in awesome Zombie Teacher style.
STRETCH GOAL 2: £3700
Adds the "Meme World" set of stages, 5 quirky levels covering dozens of memes. Cringe guaranteed.
STRETCH GOAL 3: £4200
Adds CHASE MODE to Zombie Teacher. 15 back to back chase set pieces, can you beat them all?
STRETCH GOAL 4: £5000
Android version! If you thought Zombie Teacher was tough using a controller, imagine using touch screen thumb-sticks. I can't wait either!
Risks and challenges
Zombie Teacher is my first indie video game, a one-man project. This means like many games that have come before, there is a classic risk of "delay" in release date. Zombie Teacher will be released by July and you'll all be able to play it over the summer holidays. Whether it releases earlier than that is where delays come in to play.
Any delays will be used to polish the game and add more to the over all package allowing us as gamers to experience an even more awesome journey! It wouldn't be a classic video game if it wasn't delayed at least a few days!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
