Game designers strive to bring the fright back to zombies
There are those who feel the zombie genre has lost some of its bite in recent years and the developers behind the game “Guns’n’Zombies” agree wholeheartedly.
The Krealit design team is currently pursuing a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds to finish the game, which currently has a rough demo version available.
According to a press release, Guns N Zombies tries to return zombies to their former glory. It puts a gamer into a cruel world overcrowded by lurking zombies of all kinds and shapes. Trying to survive in the hostile environment, the player uses weapons and abilities in order to fight through the ruins of civilization and reveal the hidden causes of this catastrophe.
Diverse enemies encourage players to adopt their battle tactics and to switch between available weapons, while the RPG elements increase replayability and allow a gamer to stick with the preferred gaming style.
“We pursued a goal of making a realistic game set in the world suddenly caught by zombie infestation as opposed to multiple funny zombie titles around”, says Alex Lipatov, the game designer at Krealit. “Our world is harsh, our characters are deep and realistic, our story is compelling, our zombies are scary, manifold and very, very hungry.”
The Kickstarter campaign aims to net $40,000 for development of Guns N Zombies. Upon release the game will be available for PC, Android and iOS platforms.
