Update #4

New screenshots! Ask us questions!

8 comments

Hi folks,

Tomorrow we'll do a video update with some cool information on the business sim I hope - but also we'd like to answer any particular questions you have. We know there are a bunch, so please mail them to kickstarter@ambientstudios.co.uk or alternatively tweet us @ambientgames.

But more excitingly than that, more current, more now... I present to you

Exclusive screenshots

Just your average town gathering...

The horde plays Follow The Reaper...

Right into a pesky bunch of archers...

And all hell breaks loose, so to speak.

I wonder what happens next! I've linked the larger images in the text captions so you all can get your greasy mitts on them.

Thanks guys - hope you enjoyed seeing these screenshots taken from today's build of the game! They were a lot of fun to play through and grab. 

Let us know what you think in the comments.

Jonny

      @Martin they showed that they hoped to add physics based puzzles etc into the game to unlock areas/gates ect.

      i wanna be able to control animals (like infected birds) - not just these infected people. I hope there's more control than just this paint-brush-to-make-zombies-follow.

      Is there going to be puzzles to solve as well as infecting people?

      Some random.questions for you... Don't expect you to answer all of them
      1) what are the main areas you.can upgrade/research
      2)how does.research work... Is it points based.. E.g you win 3points and can.put into tech/upgradea
      3) do you build a base to unlock units etc like xcom
      4) how long do you expect the campaign to last?
      5) will the good guys have access to magic/mystical stuff or is it more earthly tech.
      6) do any other death's get jealous and try and muzzle in your success dungeon keeper style?
      7) will there be a campaign story and how will it be presented?
      8) will you be able to design the plague army that deploys... Sort dow2 style?
      9) can death ever materialise on the battlefield as a controllable character
      10) how will you push replayability?
      11) will you have difficulty levels?
