Hey guys, I'm Dakota Grossman, Lead developer at KIA interactive and we are happy to annouce that "Not Dead Enough", a zombie apocalypse simulator, is now in production! Here is our gameplay ideas so far as well as screenshots of our work.
What is Not Dead Enough
Not Dead Enough is a survival game during the apocalypse. After thinking for a while, weíve realized that so many games have been made where you stand around and blow endless waves of zombiesí heads off. Iíve decided that itís time for a change. Our game will be less of a shoot Ďem up and more of a ďsimulator.Ē This means surviving by looting houses, eating, sleeping, drinking, boarding up walls, and basically, surviving the apocalypse.
After thinking for a while, Iíve decided to integrate a story into this game. However, it will be your choice. For example, during the story, you might find someone who asks you to do a task that effects the game later on. Our story mode is still in the thought process.
This is where everything is. Like I said before, itís not standing around blow endless waves of zombiesí heads off. Itís surviving. Itís eating, drinking, sleeping, shelter on several HUGE maps. You can explore different maps from forests to big cities. This isnít an arcade game anymore, itís a simulator. This game will also have a day and night cycle.
This will be the best but most challenging part to make. However, itís going to be the best part. During survival, you can choose to do single or multiplayer. If you choose multiplayer, you will be on a map with other people. The rest is up to you. Will you have them join your team, or will you shoot them so they wonít take all of your food? The choice is yours, whether you want to form a team or be a one man army.
Our programmer is implementing a "system" into the game. Think of it as a game engine inside of the unity engine. Here is what it features:
Customizable character option- Create the character how you want it.
MMO option- choose from several servers as you play with hundreds of other people.
Charatcer Darkness- Depending on the character you make, he can become very dark, or a saint.
Much More! Here is a video of what he's done so far:
Here are the people we have:

We are trying to go for a DayZ style, except in a full-fledged game.

That's it so far guys! WE hope to have the game done sometime in 2013, we'll keep posting updates! Also, the game will be a DOWNLOAD game. We would really like ideas, suggestions, comments, and constructive critisism so we can continue making our game better and better. Thanks!
UPDATE: By the 28th of February, we will start the beta. Cars, certain parts of maps, and a couple other things will not be in beta. See the BETA map here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/28501152/Cus...WebPlayer.html
