    How to survive a zombie apocalypse

    well, since this minild so closely aligns to the kind or game I’ve been working on lately (including the last full ludumdare), I’ve just got to give it a go.

    I think I have a terrific idea for a dialogue based zombie thriller. It will be another chance to use all my audio equipment.

    Basically you make contact over cb radio with a man in a neighboring city which is under seige from zombies. You have to use your general knowledge of zombies from books and movies to help the man make the right decisions so he can rescue his girlfriend and escape town.

    It will be a first person affair in which you listen to him describe his situation and then you choose from a dialog tree on what to say to help him. In some cases you might lead him right to his demise.

    To improve on my last game, the audio clips will be shorter. No more than a paragraph or two and there will be more interaction.

    Let’s see how it goes!

      Actually, a radio transmission-based game sounds pretty cool! I’ll be looking forward to it (or would that be “listening forward”?).

      Great idea. I liked your LD20 entry in principle, it was just SO LONG between opportunities to interact. So this sounds like a much better structure…
