A zombie RPG that takes place toward the start of the zombie apocalypse. The game switches off between different characters and as you will see they can impact each other. Everything in the game starts out fine but as you will also see it quickly goes into the action. This is just the first game in a series, so you can expect more to come. Also I could tell you more about it but I think I should leave it up to you to see.

The story to put it simple is that on October 1 at 12:00 Midnight the main main character John gets back home from a night out with his fiancee and decides to go on to his Xbox 360 and talk to some of his friends (the people in the party are the other main characters, though there may be some that might be kind of like main characters that come into play later) in a party. But suddenly the power goes out and a zombie busts through the window and he is forced to take it down with his bare hands. At the same time one of the other main characters Brett gets off his Xbox after hearing a woman scream to find out that it is his mother who has been killed by a zombie. All the characters impact each other at times such as the whole Xbox thing as well as other instances as well. The reason they all are going where they are going? Well to answer that it is because after their orginal reasons for running around (to escape or to see if someone is alive and if so get them out of there) they get bad information about a supposed safe spot (which each person hears is in a different spot and the supposed safe spot).

Also to finish off there is a mysterious Costa Rican salesman in the game (kind of like the merchant in RE4), and the game should also have music (maybe even sounds and etc.) from the Resident Evil series and Parasite Eve 1 and 2.

If you have any questions or want to know more than let me know. ^^

Current Progress as of 01/28/11

Ok the current progress is that the game is on hiatus until we can figure out some problems that we are having with the game. After all we want to make this game good.

Problems:
1.)Trying to get custom tilesets made correctly since it is proving problematic to even set it up to the point it won't be to close to some other tiles on the same set when it is put into VX.

2.)We still need to get more sprites made since our spriter dissapeared on us before.

Update as of 01/31/11:

1.) We have someone working on the tilesets now and it is only a matter of time till I see how it is going and if it will work (which by my guess it should which means things can finally continue).

2.) Our spriter has finally returned after quite awhile being away so sprites shouldn't be a problem either.

3.) If any more problems or concerns come up an update will be posted, thanks.

"A zombie RPG that takes place toward the starts of the zombie apocalypse, and not all is what it seems."

That's all we need to know :)
But seriously you need to sell the idea to us, as there's not much content to really fire up our hype levels -o-
Hmm, you should probably improve the screenshots a bit. Maybe using other monsters and moving them a bit more to the left? Also, the windowskin looks kinda ugly...

The screenshots will be different by the time the full version is available and I'm getting different sprites made so it should look better than what it's at right now and I thought the gold was a nice touch, also there will be a battle background added later on so it should help make it look better.

The whole Xbox360 meeting up with friends from other states thing I can't take seriously. Like the people on xbox360 are people I would no give a shit about in a zombie apocalypse. Especially trekking across states.

John looks like an 11 year old girl, so I'm not sure how he would be able to kill a zombie with his bare hands.

Also I hated the merchant on RE4, it's such a silly aspect. So a Costa Rican ripoff does not tickle my pickle.

But nonetheless I guess there needs to be more zombie-based RM games, no matter how bad they are/look.
Just makes mine seem all the more better, lol.

Well if I didn't say it before I'm saying it now, this series is a work in progress and this really can't be taken as helpful criticism as much since you didn't really do much helping. Also if it helps you live your life thinking your game is going to be all that then go right on ahead and do so.

I don't think my game is "going to be all that"

But you need to do some serious work to make this game playable. If I were you I wouldn't even have showed such early stages of development in such bad screenshots.
It really makes the game come off looking horrible, as well as scaring off gamers from playing it.

And as jackass as some of my comments were, I think some of them are helpful.
I know you just said your game is a WIP, but John's faceset doesn't come off as a man, or someone who is getting married. So you might wanna change that.
And really, it comes down to you to decide what you wanna do with your game, but maybe make a more believable story, even one that is set in a fictional situation.

But hey, goodluck with the game, just work at making it more horror rather than cutesy.
And you might wanna change those screenshots as soon as possible, or else you'll just get more comments about people hating on them.

Umm, alright man thanks, and yeah I planned on making those changes and I'll try to get new screenshots asap. Also I'm not sure if you understood the storyline exactly but it has to do with them meeting up after obtaining information (that changes for each of them) on the location of a safe area which turns out to not be true and that is how they end up meeting.

Shhh, that should be a pivotal plot twist, not your main selling point.
And I'm pretty sure we get it. It's not a complicated concept to grasp... I do agree that nobody gives a shit about the people they play Xbox live with. You just need to give them a greater link than that - like, for example, are they four friends from college, who still play games together online? I feel like the Xbox is being shoehorned in simply because you have one and you like playing it, not because it adds an interesting aspect to the game. (For example, how would it be different if they were playing WoW on PCs instead of whatever on the Xbox? How would it be different if they were in an internet chatroom? etc)

Hmm, well I do suppose you are right and I could make some changes as accordingly as it is a game after all, so will do so as well as change the description a bit (which I planned to do anyway).
