We're creating a game first and foremost about your choices, and those choices determine your survival in this zombie-filled world. The goals you have are the goals you set. Scavenging, exploring, fortifying, building, barricading, and of course, fighting off the zombie hordes.
The world of The Dead Linger is randomly generated, and it is the size of a small planet. We don't simply mean it's large, we truly mean it's planet-sized. About 25,000 kilometers, to be exact. Every new world created will be different, and you can explore every inch of it, indoors and outdoors, every window, every door.
You've found a hideout. Now what? Barricade it! Fortify it! Defend it! You probably need a place to keep your stuff. You might need a place to house your clan, or maybe you just like a particular building you found. If you choose, you can fortify and defend
Supporting up to at least 16 players in a single world, The Dead Linger can be played solo or with a group of friends watching your back.
We're bringing Player vs. Player to the zombie apocalypse! Have you ever wanted to shoot it out through a massive city-scape, with zombies intermingling and causing chaos in between? The Dead Linger will feature solo, cooperative, and PvP game modes for whatever flavor you prefer.
And we need YOUR help!
In order to get our key team members working full time on this project, and in order to ensure we bring everything promised here, we need your help. Who are we? http://www.sandswept.net/inside/meet-the-team
We are asking for $60,000, a goal that will allow us a full-time development window of at least 6 months, on top of the 6 months we've already been working on it. We expect to have a polished Alpha release within 3 to 6 months.
In order to get TDL out there and into your hands as soon as we can, we're releasing the game once it is in a polished Alpha stage. Players will be able to buy it for a lower price during Alpha, play it, and give us feedback and suggestions. The game will eventually migrate into Beta stage, and then the final Release stage.
We want nothing more than to see The Dead Linger created. It's a game that we want to make, and we want to play. We want you to be a part of it.
Survivors, there is still hope for the zombie genre. It can be found here!
