i was in another forum about what our favorite zombie based video game was when we came to see that their just weren't many good zombie games out their. then someone said it "their should be an online MMORPG zombie apocalypse first-person shooter. Something as big as World Of Warcraft. That would be fucking awesome, it would be like a simulation of what would happen in a real z-poc." that's when it hit me! the after the movie is finally made lost zombies should come together and make that video game. i mean who else but us. collectively we have more zombie knowledge and creative ability then any game company. i mean we already put out a book, and the movie is just around the corner. think of it the first community generated zombie video game ever made. this should be the next step for lost zombies, this is the future for us the community, this is OUR DESTINY! IF YOU WITH ME THEN LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD! TOGETHER THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN'T ACCOMPLISH. NO PEAK WE CAN NOT CLIME, NO DEPTH WE CAN NOT SWIM, ARE YOU WITH ME!
I have alot of good ideas for this, the only problem is see behind this making a first person shooter is awesome but adding zombies is a bit of a problem, how many games do you play where at times enemy's come from behind. the hardcore gamers like me playing on the hardest difficulties will get dizzy just from spinning constantly to watch our backs.
have any of you played BFBC2? if so when you die during multiplayer you have that option to watch what your team is doing. this sort of zoomed out over the shoulder kind of view. where you see the character but you also their far enough behind them. this could fix the problem but then it wouldn't be first person. ehh I'll see what I can think of.
oooor. you can do like in those star wars battlefront games and change from 1st-3rd person view *and vice versa* in the options menu....
and the whole spinning behind you thing works out perfectly for a zombie game...with it being a horror based game, it all adds to the survival notion of trying to be the last alive for something like this and adds a bit more realism for it....
I know it's a different type of game but in resi evil the requirement to spin 180degrees is a simple "down" and A or whatever so the spin thing dizziness shouldn't have to be an issue..
Saint love your initial post! and Yes i am in though more in a "moral support" kindda way cos i know nothing about Graphic design or game creation lol...
Hope your idea is take seriously!
Gods. did i just read wow. do i have to stab someone in the eyes? Heh...
Anyways Endlesswarrior, check out dead Island. Now thats how this should be just on a grander scale with elements from Fallout, Far Cry, Crysis and some other games which has the free roaming thing and battle effects locked in place.
I don't want this to be like a left 4 dead game. Theyre to 'point A to point B' style and the run and gun isnt a real simulation for a z-poc. It could be if you were being chased and trying to find safety but I feel that l4d is unrealistic.
It would be cool if it was an open world sandbox game, but with missions to do also, like GTA.
Im gonna make a video which will be a real life representation of what would be cool to have in the game.
A blog will follow shortly.
besides the simulation, What is the story line for this thing ? our main character ______ does ________ I think making your own character like in fallout 3 would rock.
