Pre-Alpha Gameplay Footage, New Reward Tier, and Free Copy(s) ?'s Answered

Posted by Massive Black Inc (Creator)

1. A Thousand Thank You's

As per usual, we have to first thank our sponsors...  YOU!  Thank you!  We're super excited to have surpassed the half way mark; it's thrilling to see people want this project to become a reality besides just us!  With 18 days to go, we're turning up the heat, time is 'a tickin'...  So, on that note, with this update we are hoping to look past the $100k goal and make a serious push for the higher milestones (where this game should really be!).

2. Pre-Alpha Gameplay Footage

Ok folks, here's our best foot forward.  This is our super early, pre-alpha, prototype, proof of concept, animatic, work in progress, caveat, caveat, caveat game footage. =)  Nothing in this footage represents the final game.  All the textures, models, animations, and gameplay are place holders.  I'll shut up now, time for the moment of truth... (/me crosses fingers).

You can discuss this footage here:

3. What's included with the free game copies at the $25 and $45 tiers?

The verdict is in...  All reward game copies at those tiers will also include the free Kickstarter exclusive in-game items associate with, and below, those respective tiers.  Time to pool your resources!  Have a BBQ, pow-wow, tailgate'r, or tupperware party; get your friends, families, and neighbors to all pitch in and enjoy the massacre together!

4. New $75 Reward Tier

This Tier adds "Sunny" the lantern toting puppy for all reward game copies.  That means that all your additional reward copies of the game will also have access to Sunny and all other in-game rewards below that Tier.   

Thanks again Everyone, more exciting updates coming soon, please stay tuned!  Let's keep the momentum going!

      Those tall guys are puking black blood onto the player. =))

      @Victoria C: I was wondering the same thing. At first I thought the giant zombies were spitting out black goo. But it seemed to come out when the zombies got hit so I'm guessing unfinished blood spatter effects??? It looked odd since the spray sort of evaporates in the air.

      Question though, what is the black smoke that is coming from the zombies?

    7. Tan Le on

      Awesome! Can't wait to play!

      Make sure there is lots of combos, not too repetitive if all those zombies are coming to get me.

    9. Silvernis on

      This is going to be buckets of bloody fun. ^_^

      Not a huuuuge fan of the music, but the gameplay is coming along great! Love the character model. Keep up the good work :D
