Huge FREE update just released

We have just released a huge FREE update to Zombie Driver HD which includes a lot of improvements to the game.

Major changes:
- more than doubled the number of zombies roaming the streets,
- a lot more weapons around the city which results in much more dynamic gameplay,
- a new "Retro" camera setting which presents gameplay from an entirely top-down perspective with no camera rotation,
- bloody skidmarks when driving through blood splats
- dust particles are emitted when a car is drifting
- soft ambient occlusion shadows (HBAO),
- depth fog,
- environment reflections,
- new animated objects,
- improved particle animation and physically simulated particles,
- improved atmospheric effects and rebalanced all missions,

The new update enables HBAO by default (it is called Screen Space Ambient Occlusion in the config window). This option may be hard on some older or integrated graphics cards so if you are experiencing performance problems please disable it in the config screen or decrease your rendering resolution (the rendering performance cost of this feature is directly tied to the screen resolution). We also strongly encourage everyone to leave Vsync turned on.

Huge Free update available in Beta

We are currently working on a huge FREE update to Zombie Driver HD which includes a lot of big improvements to the game.

Major changes:
- more than doubled the number of zombies roaming the streets,
- a lot more weapons around the city which results in much more dynamic gameplay,
- a new "Retro" camera setting which presents gameplay from an entirely top-down perspective with no camera rotation,
- bloody skidmarks when driving through blood splats
- dust particles are emitted when a car is drifting
- soft ambient occlusion shadows (HBAO),
- depth fog,
- environment reflections,
- new animated objects,
- improved particle animation and physically simulated particles,
- improved atmospheric effects and rebalanced all missions,

We have just released the update as a public beta and it would be great if you could help us spot any problems before we make it live for everyone. If you want to check out the update right click on Zombie Driver HD in your list of games on Steam, select Properties, go to the Beta tab and select the Public Beta from the drop down menu. The update should download approximately 1.1GB (we've changed a lot of stuff).

The new update enables HBAO by default (it is called Screen Space Ambient Occlusion in the config window). This option may be hard on some older or integrated graphics cards so if you are experiencing performance problems please disable it in the config screen or decrease your rendering resolution (the rendering performance cost of this feature is directly tied to the screen resolution). We also strongly encourage everyone to leave Vsync turned on.

If you would encounter any crashes or problems it would help us greatly if you could send us the debug information that should be created with each crash. You can find crash dump information here (Exact location depends on which windows version you have and may be slightly different.):
C:\Users\your_username\Documents\ZombieDriverHD

Memory dump file name should be similar to this:
ZombieDriverHD_3221225477_2010_1_8_T13_50_3.mdmp

Please send the files and your feedback to support@zombiedriver.com. We would very much appreciate your help in smoothing out any problems!

All in all, Zombie Driver HD is not a bad game. The game does offer enough content for a good time and the improved HD visuals make the on screen carnage really pop. If you are a fan of car combat games and killing mindless zombies, I suggest checking this one out.

I actually really like this one. Not sure if there's anything bad to say about it. It's not your Triple-A title with a rich plot and surprisingly innovative gameplay but I don't think that it intends to be that. If you want to let off steam, this is it. Kinda like Nation Red, only in a car.

Quality is also very good, visually and technically. Oh, and good controller support; playing it with a Xbox 360 controller.

One of the few games I like to get back to now and then and still enjoy it. Recommended.

It's actually not a bad game at all. The story and voice acting could be better but the core game is fun and addicting. It's even better if you can find a mod or trainer that enable unlimited bullets.

I received this game as a gift from someone, and I probably would've bought it myself if I knew how much fun it was going to be. I only have about two hours put in to it, but that's certanily enough time to figure out what this game is all about. Picture a mashup of the early Grand Theft Auto titles and your run of the mill zombie destruction game.

That really sums it up, but being able to upgrade your car and play around with different weapons is interesting. You will find yourself rolling around, running things over, and picking up health a good bit (or maybe I'm just bad at the game and tend to play recklessly.)

It's not something I can see myself sticking with through endgame, but it IS a fun time waster for those who are looking for something to fill the slot while they decide which next big AAA title they want to go after. I'm a big fan of indie games for this reason, they usually have a simple purpose, are easy to play, and offer enough challenges to stay interesting. We're at a point now that they can no longer espouse graphical beauty as an aid to actual gameplay or "fun factor" - graphics just don't make a game more fun. A game can be beautiful to an extreme degree and still be boring. This, however, is not boring. It's fast paced, interesting, and an oddity in the world of indie games in that it stands out by being a unique combination of largely overdone concepts.

Easily a 9/10, and definitely playable and enjoyable in small doses. You aren't, however, likely to pour 80 hours of your life in to it.

This is a brilliant game and I have had hours of fun from it so far. The achievements aren't too difficult to get and I've had fun playing the game to its full potential to steadily obtain them all.
There is the occasional bug here or there, or a car might not handle how you'd like it to leading to a frustrating "anything-but-first" race finish, but the game hasn't gotten boring for me yet and that's what I love about it.
It could be seen as repetitive gameplay, as you are effectively doing the same thing over and over again but there are things thrown in here and there to spice the gameplay up a bit!

Fun racing/zombie squashing game. Tournaments are fun, there are leaderboards, achievements and a ton of GORE! In case you like it. Me, I don't, but the game is well-made and enjoy-able. Oh, did I mention achievements? None are broken, so you can 100% this.

Grab the demo to test it out.

This game is a lot more fun than it has any right to be. Top-down view, drive around the city (and other environments in the different game modes) and slaughter zombies. That doesn't sound like it should be anything special, but this game pulls it off especially well to make it a fun game.

It's definitely a great little time waster, and definitely worth getting. :)

This games was great on my other laptop. However my new laptop has a Nvidia Optimus chipset (Intel + Nvidia). If i launch the game with the integrated Intel HD4600 it start and runs, but cannot keep up. If i launch with the Nvidia card I get the configuration utility which only shows the Intel HD4600, if i try to launch I get a Microsoft Visual C++ error.

There have been multiple threads about the issue, i have tried all possible solutions but no luck. This has to do with the video card (and the fact the configuration utility cannot even choose my Nvidia card). My setup works on all 40 of my other steam games without a problem (even tried the Nvidia on Monkey Island, a little overkill but it still works).

The game itself is fun an brillant, however due to the fact no one with the Nvidia Optimus can get any support from the game developers i would not purchase this game (there was just an update in August so the game is far from abandoned). If they fix the game i will change my recommendation. However seeing as though i cannot play it i would not recommend to anyone else to purchase.
