    Hey, I just wanted to warn you that some of those assets in the pic above were illegally used by BackwardStudios. I am really sorry about that.

    How the hell are you in Beta? This is pre-alpha at most.

    lol, thanks. We've been pumping along trying to get everything running for it, and apparently due to a lie, we're using stolen assets. Thankfully, the owner of these assets are letting us use it for the upcoming demo.

    I finally got to see the terrain. It looks great, but how did you texture it? Looks so natural :p

    Wow, it looks nice. By terrain toolkit do you mean the default one Unity brings. If so you are pretty good at making terrains :)

    Around two days. The player is setup and working in game, You can equip baseball bats and pistols but they are both the shotgun model in game. So it's not broken :p Did some work on the camera feels a little smoother. Player still falls through the ground once and awhile, I know what the issue is though and will get it fixed!

    downloadable version here.

    Guys it looks great, but really stop team bumping each other. There is such thing as a PM and Skype.

    It is clear by now that most of you are in a team. Just chill on the posting a bit

    Listen to your audience.... Team bumping scares people away

    I've already warned dtg108 about this. Please keep the unnecessary noise to a minimum.

    People don't need to hear about every little minuscule update you make or, worse, announcements about potential future updates.

    Discuss these things in private and post here when you have something genuinely interesting/significant to share.

    Don't start this. He works with Unity, he has the right to tell us what to do. You better not get this shut down, just listen.

    This does not change the fact that you are replying to your own forum, you should only post here in responce to your audience, and keep things tidy. And No disrispect, but if your team is so large then you should have more experience with the way the creative media industry present themselves, which is a professional mannor, not talking to eachother on a forum that is for your potential fans.

    He is an artist, his job is to create art. He is giving advice, so he will not have to report this. Dtg lets just post updates as we make them and not progress. :] Sorry you guys are upset for us keeping you in the loop of what we are doing, we will give you summaries.

    This is one of the most annoying topics in the WIP section. ;) Guess is just a matter of age and common sense.

    Agreed. And when I asked you guys to please only post significant progress I wasn't really talking about posting a single prop that is a cylinder with a potentially offensive texture on it. Next pointless post on this thread gets it closed down. Post again when you have your next build with actual progress.

    Hello everyone we have been hard at work to get something playable for the public! Now we finally have a alpha tech demo ready for you. We are working on all the animations since they aren't perfect and result in poppy movement and makes the locomotion tweak out.

    Features
    Item Quality Q1-Q12

    Q1 is the best quality for items.
    Q12 is the worst.

    Q1 guns have lowered recoil, raised damage and higher chance to knock a zombie down.
    Q12 guns have raised recoil, lowered damage and lower chance to knock a zombie down.

    Q1 food and drinks are full
    Q12 food and drinks are almost empty
    (In the future this will be used to determine if you should eat it, resulting in sickness if its bad quality)

    Q1 bullets
    Q12 bullets
    (Quality of bullets doesn't effect anything yet. I Might make it jam the gun if its bad quality)

    Player Control
    The player uses locomotion so his feet align with the ground, this still needs some work. You can decide if you want to play if first person or third person. Third person allows shoulder switching. The player can also crouch to increase shooting accuracy.

    Newspapers
    Newspapers will be used to tell the story of the game. Basically how the zombie Apocalypse started. Collect all of them to get the full story.

    P.S Tesla Coil and antenna tree. We have posted many webplayers and other stuff along the way. Sure some of it isn't very important but we wanted feedback on the webplayer and pictures. It's helping polish the game. Please don't just bash things. Provide constructive criticism that we can improve. Just saying our posts are annoying doesn't fix the problem. Also, why would you close down this forum we are working very hard to make something entertaining and playable. You threaten to destory some of work with a click of a button very nice of you :)

    Game lags a bit especially when I'm trying to shoot. I know it's not my PC lol. Neat game idea you guys have. Also your GUI HUD gets cut off at certain aspect ratios. Another thing is the mouse controls are a bit annoying. Keep up the good work. looking forward to the next update.

    It lags because its trying to reload when shooting and the spawning is causing the lag when zombies are being created. I will improve this :) Whats wrong with the mouse controls? I'll try to make it react better.

    The guy is always hunched over, but other than that the build was cool. I have one key question, When i ate a can of beans my screen turned red. Was that supposed to happen? Good Luck on the game

    Are you sure you didn't get hit when you ate the can of beans? If not that is defiantly not supposed to happen.

    The alpha is free, Beta will cost 2.5 dollars by the end of beta the game will be full price being 20 dollars. So, if you decide to fund us in early beta you get the game for 75% off :)

    The game is planned for Linux, Mac and PC. So, a mouse, keyboard and a fairly decent computer.

    I find it rather difficult to aim honesty. It might be because the cursor isn't centered on the screen lol,l so it's me not the game.

    The WIP gets more interesting if you post updates and not use the WIP for communication between developers them self. Lets call this a "saved by the bell" as the update looks promising. Good luck on the game and looking forward to more updates.
