Greetings PZ survivors. Alas it's a been a while since I've gotten some good PZ play time in. How long a has the zombie cam been in play when you die(Watching your survivor who just turned go shuffling around was rather interesting). That one was new to me last time I fired up PZ. Anyway, Just wanted to let you know that my company is making a sequel to our original zombie themed game ZPocalypse. You start off on the loan apocalyptic streets having just escaped the recently nuked urban zombie infested wasteland. You’re tired, wounded, and hungry. You need SHELTER, a safe house, where you can lick your wounds and regroup. Not just any house will do though. First you need to make sure it’s safe inside. Clear it out, board up those windows, clean out those beds. Setup guards for early warning systems, and get patrols to go out on scavenging runs, b/c food is in short supply. But they keep coming, every night. What will you do? How long will you last? Is their any end in site for this zombie apocalypse? So much so, have I enjoyed the crafting and base building of PZ that we felt we needed to incorporate some of those aspects into our physical game Zpocalypse 2 which is up on kickstarter right now. ATM we are funded, but we'd really love to open up some , what I feel are vital stretch goals, to really get this game fleshed out and fully specked. (Aka, I'm talking about campaign mode). Campaign mode is going to take alo of time, play testing and play testers to get it so you can play jsut like in PZ to literally see how many days you can survive. So far we've added new foods types (Good Food, Raw food, Rad Food, Coffee, Booze, smokes). You can combine the Raw food and Rad food, using a camp fire upgrade to make various pots of stew which remove the negative status effects that raw and rad food give you if eaten unprepared. Next we got our resources conversion upgrades, such as the Workbench, which lets you build other upgrades, in addition to granting the ability to disassemble armory cards into scrap for you use in building other things. Reload bench lets you craft more ammunition and make improvised bombs. Infirmary lets you remove negative status effects with a night of rest. Beds lets you regain hit points faster overnight, instead of just idly sitting on the ground attracting more zombies to your safe house. You can now build pit traps, upgrade those pesky sandbags with spikes, and maybe even make a propane bomb. The game is being redesigned so you the player have alot more decision and choices for what your survivors do each day. These choices dictate how bad nightly combat will be(if there even is any combat), all the while trying to improve the fortifications’ of your base, feed your survivors, find more survivors, and of course kill as man of those ghoulish zed heads as possible! Anyway, it's up on kickstarter for another 2-3 weeks. Please check it out. There are some areas of the game which are purposely unfinished as we are trying to get community direction on where to take the game. Which new locations, mechanics, and concepts will we put into the game? (I'd personally love to add the cloth part type, and allow hung sheets crafting to block line of sight, just like you can in PZ). Zachary Parkes Vice President of Greenbrier Games Inc.

Hello ! We are a pair of newbie game makers in need of feedback on our half-baked game. After prototyping a lot, we settled for a combination of puzzler, platformer / maze, shoot-em-up and sci-fi adventure. Gameplay is much about interacting with blocks: Some can be moved, some are easily destroyed, some gets destroyed only by laser, some can be toggled on and off, and some sits in the background until you "create" them. There are spikes, acidic liquids and blocks that emit beams which bounces against 45 degree angles. Besides the different blocks, there are keys, locks, crystals, spheres and hearts for health. And there are buttons in the level for shooting laser and bombs at various enemies and blocks. At first sight, this might seem a bit messy with many ingredients, but we hope that this mix of problem-solving and action is entertaining and challenging. The game will be released for PC/Mac/iOS but is in beta stage now, with a three-level, playable demo ready. Feedback and funding is what's missing now, so we are grateful for any comments on gameplay or anything! There's a video at our webpage presenting story and gameplay: http://pollopuzzler.com
