"This is the story of how you died"
Project Zomboid is one of the few Zombie survival games that actually tries to have everything loved from the genre. Crafting, cooking and farming. Barricade windows and doors, build a safe house and scavenge supplies to stay alive.
Using the skills to build and cook or fight will allow you to become better at them, so there is some character progression.
Also let's not forget the awesome music in this game. Highly reccomended!
If I had to compare it to any games I would say it is like the sims+ Don't starve+ night of the living dead.
Future plans are in place to add npc's other than zombies and polish to the engine and graphics.
It really is quite addicting and a great early access title to get your hands on. Especially if you liked state of decay and wanted a little more. Also word going around that a story campaign will be put in as well.
With amazing details like food degradation and injury/ illness/ exposure to cold and heat/ mood debuffs/ weapon durability/ character encumberance/ sound and light attraction of the zombies this game can be a nice challenge on the nice open maps.
It isn't an FPS but it plays great and has similar controls to an FPS.
Just remember this is Early Access and there are some bugs and such. As it stands the game is very much in a good playable state and well worth the money. Hearing about the coming changes to this title, I am even more stoked about this particular purchase.
