First Look: Animation, and More!

Posted by Massive Black Inc (Creator)

A HUGE thank you to all the backers again for your ongoing support!  We couldn't do this without you; you are the client and we aim to deliver!    

Linux - We'd like to mention that we are reviewing the requirements for a Linux version, so are working to try and move that down some tiers for you Linux lovers out there.

Steam - We are currently working with Valve to make Zombie Playground available on Steam. If/when that is finalized, you will be the first to know.  They are great folks there and we would be thrilled to be on Steam.  It's just fantastic to have their support for ZPG.

Gameplay Footage - We understand this is a big want from the community (rightly so!), and we are just about ready to show some very early, pre-alpha in-game footage.  Please stay tuned, we're shooting to get this to you next week, just in time for E3!!

We'd like to share with you a First Look at the Animation of the game.  This is a first pass blocking animation of a run cycle (so please be forgiving!  =))  

You can discuss this animation here: 

Thanks again everyone, we're excited to see this game get closer to it's goal!  More updates soon, and GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE IS ON THE WAY!  <3

      Thanks for the preview. You guys are starting out strong. Excellent work. Hey, if you're working with Valve, maybe we'll see kid versions of the characters from Left 4 Dead and L4D2? One can dream...

      The animation works perfectly with the character design. I can't wait to see the zombies in action! Keep the updates coming.
