The Weekly Dead 28

Hello Survivors!

Wondering where 15c is? Here's a blog post from Geoff on the current status of 15c!
Be sure to read that first! It's super important and stuff.

This week's blog is a bit concept-y. Parker has been knocking out a pretty big list of concepts for useful objects in game.

We're looking at the various ways we're going to allow survivors to supply power to nearby objects. For the environmentally conscious, here's a make-shift deployable solar panel setup.

For the gas guzzler in us all, a trustworthy portable generator.

Some good old fashioned pen and paper maps. Which one do you like better?

Sorry, but there's no Google Maps in the apocalypse! We have a few more map types coming as well, so you can explore and survive with the detail and type of navigation you prefer.

And for all your welding needs: the blowtorch! Just be careful where you point that thing...

You may have caught a glimpse of the Broken variant. Well, a few cups of coffee and Silent Hill soundtracks later.... Yeah. This thing's gross. This is just one type of this variant, anyway.

Oh, and there's some new grass! It's way better on performance, has a much more realistic patterning/splat method, and you can see it further away. We have a lot more plans coming to grass, but we're going to knock out some more important stuff before we get full-fledged into those.

Remember that far terrain we talked about in the last blog? Looks pretty freaking cool. Out to about 8 kilometers, in this picture. The forest out there is accurate down to the exact tree, but uses way less memory and processing. It's hard to show in a picture, but you'll feel the results when you play 15c.

Ryan is currently working on some Emergency Flare sticks for some new ways to light up the world. We'll show those off when they're further along.

Dane just finished playing with his dolls, and he'll be back to wrapping up military gear. A military ballistics helmet is currently in the pipeline. You'll start to see all that gear resurface as The Storm arrives, right after Build 16 is out the door.

Everything else going on is of the top secret secretness. More on those secrets later!

Potential is just that... potential. Pre-alpha a year ago; potential. Pre-alpha now; potential. What we have here is failure to deliver on a concept. I'm sure Sandswept is giving it their blood, sweat, and tears, but thus far, the potential is far from reality. Now and then I give it another try and play for a half hour or so to see if anything has drastically improved, but it's nearly void of immersive content, glitchy, terribly optimized, and seemingly buggier with each build.

The Sandswept team is great about community relations and sharing the roadmap for the game, and I wish the dev team the best with hope it can turn some of this potential into actual gameplay soon.

Until some proof of delivery is offered up, this game is relegated to the "Not Recommended" category. I hope to change this review to yes someday.

Despite the positivity of the dev team, this game is an utter waste of money in its current state.

They've released a seemingly infinite amount of "updates," none of which make the game especially playable. The animations are garbage, many weapons just plain do not work, the barricading feature they are proud of is utter garbage, and the multiplayer is essentially unplayable.

In one multiplayer game, once we got past the usual "We're in a forest/No, we're in a desolate wasteland" argument, as neither party sees the same thing, after slogging through nothingness and finding a cabin (which exploded into a pile of items when we got close to it), we tried finding a town, only for my friend to be launched into the sun for no reason.

This is particularly frustrating because I can FEEL the potential. This COULD be wonderful. Unfortunately, it's not and I'm skeptical it will be if things keep moving they way they seem to be.

TLDR: This is a definite pass for now. Just wait, save your money and watch the progress.

When they said a "no nonsense zombie survival game... just zombies" THEY WERE NOT KIDDING. There's nothing else relevant enough to mention.There's nothing to do in the game. The zombies are no better than the flat NPCs from DOS games of old.

"Memory: 6 GB RAM" requirement... I have 8 with two graphics cards and the frame rate is STILL unplayable (no matter what video setting combination I try in-game or with my hardware). I'm not even sure what it's rendering. Every house is the same (kitchen table, toilet, chair, a mattress) and there's no loot. Hope for loot is worse than a picked-through DayZ server. Framerate is the same indoors/outdoors... so I'm stumped.

From what I've read, it's using the Unity engine and it really shows in the framerate. I think that fact, plus the inability to streamline their code (again, not sure what's being rendered, calculated... whatever) is a great START to my argument on why this is a pass. Throw in no content, no gameplay or a lack of any fundamental reason to play this as a "video game" and you get where I'm at with this.

I really don't like giving any developers any grief. To the developers, keep at it, I'm sure this will eventually be something. I bought a 4-pack, so there's my donation to the cause. My only note is to take some time off, then come back at it with a fresh, unbiased look. Is it fun? Is the engine the right fit for the breadth of gameplay we want our users to experience? I wish you all the luck and success. I hope to check back in a year and just be blown away with a fantastic version of The Dead Linger.

I bought this game because what I read in the update logs looked like something that wanted to step out of the whole survival box, but sadly some things outweigh these thoughts.

First off, my personal favorite Survival game would be one, where you have as many possibilities and actions as in real life, for example moving furniture around to barricade houses and stuff like that. The Dead Linger does have that ability, and some other nice features.

But the game itself runs terribly, I can't run it at 60fps, at the lowest graphic setting, hell I probably don't even have 30fps. It crashes without reasons and you don't really have anything to play. It's just a big sandbox world, where nothing works the way it's supposed to. This isn't a game yet, it's a testing mess.

If they fix the performance issues and fix one problem at a time, I'd recommend this game, just because they seem to understand where survival games need to go to keep being entertaining but thus far: it's a no from me.

Used to be an OK game and now a pile of unplayable ♥♥♥♥♥.

Back when i first bought it , it had potential and was intresting.

Hopping back in after a few months of not playing it , it's not just a laggy and bare game that's filled to the brim with gliches and there's not much to offer anymore.

They outta call this game "The Development Lingers"
I've had it for a year now and they have done very little to make a game. Don't waste your money. There is patience and then there is taking people's money for no return product. I've seen tons of hand drawn sketches and character models of things like backpacks and sunglasses, and they do look impressive. But somehow the zombies in this game are featurless black sillouette monsters. I dunno man. I feel like I got ripped off by a couple dudes who are trolling for beer money.
This game is never going to be done, save your money

Such a shame.....

I recommended this game 6 months ago but now find it really hard to. I want to, I really do, but at present this game is sooo Alpha (almost pre-Alpha if there were such a thing) that it is barely playable, even to test it out.

The dev's continue to be active and I applaud them for that but at present all of the planned features just seem like pipe dreams.

I would love to see this game suceed (which is why i gave money to it in the first place) but as another year draws to a close and still the base content is so, so broken, i have begun to doubt if it will ever be finished. Hell, i'd even settle for Beta lol.

Like most I'll probably log in again next patch but in the meantime I'll put my time (and money) to a surer bet (H1Z1 anyone?) as i'd actually like to see some return on my investments.

+ Somewhat Fun to explore
+ Visuals are ok
+ Procedural generation
+ No HUD (has that Metro feel to it)

- Attacking system is a little flawed (especially ranged weapons... sometimes you shoot directly at the zombie and it doesn't register, usually better off running up to them and mash-clicking with an axe)
- Takes so long to get anywhere useful... making it a real walking simulator.. what I would do for a vehicle or some sort... hell I'd be happy with a bicycle at this point.
- Some roads just end... if there is no house there... why would they bother building a road
- Very little zombies and they aren't very skilled (I only had to kill one at any time and if you get the first hit... it's a flawless victory, if not then then mash and it dies without taking a second hit
- Need to be able to loot cabinets and desks... currently the only loot is the stuff on the floor and if the floor is grass like in my case... it's difficult to find and see
- Crafting system doesn't really let you craft much but a camp fire and a wood plank (which is probably for the best considering you don't have much inventory space)

Overall... the game isn't ready yet... but I think they have the fundamentals in the right place, just needs some bugs cleaned up and features added

In a day and age where zombie exploration games seem to be flowing off the virtual shelves... I'd say wait for this one to mature before buying it at this stage... not that it's a bad game, it just doesn't feel like a game at the moment, it's not challenging at all... you could walk around for hours without seeing a single zombie and maybe starve to death because you can't find any loot either.

This review is based on the 15c alpha version of The Dead Linger.

Tonnes of Potential, Active Developers but...

..They're just missing the experience in bringing a title like this out, with the upcoming SONY MMO this is just going to be dust on the shelf, sorry guys.

The Dead Linger is one of those alphas you buy, load, and immediately realize you've thrown your hard-earned money into the toilet. The devlogs are more entertaining than the "game" is. Considering that survival zombie games are a dime a dozen, and the incredibly slow pace of this one, I would steer clear of "the developements linger" and get ANY other. Even if it ran above 20 fps, and had new zombie models, it would be "meh" at best.

E' passato praticamente un anno dall'uscita di questo gioco in Alpha su steam, e il progress come mostrato sulla pagina ufficiale sta fermo al 30% ( da 1 anno!! un 30% ridiclolo tra l'altro!!!!). Scarsissimi contenuti, si puà vagare anche mezz'ora sulla mappa senza trovare la più minima traccia di zombie o costruzione, mappa spoglia monotona,malfatta. Quando finalmente trovi una cittadina rimani basito nel vedere 5-6 case tutte uguali in forma e colore e con interni identici l'una dall'altra..Zombie ridicoli tutti uguali (stessa faccia stessi vestiti tutti!!), gameplay inesistente nella lotta contro gli zombie, quando li colpisci non capisci nemmeno se li hai presi o no, cadono come foglie, non una goccia di sangue,non uno straccio di effetto grafico che certifichi che li hai definitiva Voto 3,5, e sconsiglio vivamente di comprarlo..sarebbe buttare via i soldi dato che è praticamente ingiocabile e ti annoia dopo 20 minuti..Spero che queste recensioni vadano all'occhio degli sviluppatori per capire che la gente non è stupida e sa riconoscere un gioco di M***A"!

Aggiornamento della recensione al 5/11/2014:
Provati nuovi updates ma poco e cambiato, edifici imbarazzanti da copia e incolla random sulla mappa roba che fa chiunque in 10 min, armi da fuoco nuove che quando ricarichi spariscono dalle mani senza un perchè, gameplay orrendo era ed orrendo è rimasto..( si son dimenticati di fare la skin di gambe e mani agli zombie perchè sono nero puro, tutti uguali). Capisco che è un sono anni che ci lavorano, esce 1 update ogni morta di papa acclamata come se fosse una rivoluzione, ma la verità è una .. Gioco scadente tale e quale a quando è uscito....

Credo che faranno un pò di soldi e poi spariranno con un bel messaggio del tipo: "cari giocatori, nonostante il vostro sostegno economico acquistando il gioco, non possiamo più permetterci di svilupparlo. Stiamo chiudendo baracca e lasceremo le sorgenti a chiunque vorrà proseguire. Dead linger è morto, viva Dead linger!"

**EDIT** **Over a month since i posted this, and the game is still unplayable even with the newest hotfixes for Build 15**


Ive been in this games alpha for 2 years now, and this game is still the same buggy mess it was 2 years ago. I have seen games like Rust, 7 Days to Die,The Forest, Space engineers and many other early access games, update regularly with content whereas The Dead Linger just sits in its same shameful state. When they give a date for an update it is always delayed by months....they initially said an update every 2 weeks, when that turned into 2 months and someone asked on their twitter they responded with a attitude and how they can take as much time as they see fit. These are truly amatuer developers and there are so many better titles out there for $20. This game at this rate will take 10 years to develop, Ive been waiting 2 years and it still looks and plays the same (unplayable and my computer can handle it).

TL;DR Save your money, this game is not worth $5 let alone a full $20, go buy anything but've been warned

I bought this game on Feb.04.2013, way before it hit Steam and before the engine switch from Ogre to Unity and have followed it closely eversince. Unfortunately I really cannot recommend this game anymore to anyone. It's promise after promise; only to be followed by excuse after excuse.

Back in 2013, when they were switching engines (wich took 6 months without updates) we were told that after the engine change they could dish out content faster, unfortunately that didn't happen. Then the game went to Steam, and again it was promised that more updates would arrive faster. Again it didn't happen. And that's just 2 examples, to be honest I can't count anymore how many times we were promised something (be it an update, more content etc.) only to be followed by an excuse as to why they didn't deliver.

That's what you can expect from Sandswept Studios, promises, promises, promises followed by an inevitable excuse. I feel bad having to give this game a negative review and honestly I WANT the game to succeed, I really do! But at this point all I have seen is excuses and very, very little progress on the game.

I understand it's a small team and that's why I gave them the benefit of the doubt eversince I bought the game in Feb. 2013. However at it's current state, there isn't much gameplay at all, the performance is horrible and the bugs and crashes are even worse. That would be alright for an early access game if issues actually got fixed and content and gameplay was being added. But the updates are too few and too far between to have any meaning and nothing substantial gets fixed/added. At the rate it has been going, The Dead Linger will be finished in 2025.

If you are on the fence about buying The Dead Linger, I'd recommend to keep your money for now and wait a couple of months. You will see exactly what I mean about promises and excuses. If, by then, you are still interested, then by all means buy it. But if you ask me there are far better things to spend your money on.

The Dead Linger is a game I've been on the middle with for a long, long time. First let me say, the reason why this is a no isn't because it's bad - but because progress is so painfully slow and small. The game - if completed with all promised features - will be a fantastic one for any zombie survival enthusiast.

I have been in the community since the original kickstarter, so don't let the 100 minutes of playtime fool you. The Dead Linger has promised such a large amount of things that it's becoming hard to believe it will happen. The basic game functions are there: looting, building, barricading, food, et cetera. Even the multiplayer isn't half bad, being fairly optimized with little lag. But we get a large update approximately four to five times a year. And these large updates usually include small fixes and one partially implemented game mechanic.

However, it should be said that updates STILL happen - and we are even kept informed on these updates (Screen shots, information, weekly blogs from the devs, et cetera.) This isn't quite like the other indie games that got so popular and so much money at the beginning that the devs just half ♥♥♥ things. They are trying and it's obvious the amount of effort they put into it.

Personally, I recommend not buying this unless you are a complete and total early access person like I am. This game is, to me, a 50/50 chance of turning out how we wanted or not. So for now, I do not recommend it to anyone who wants a game that definitely has a future.

Check out Project Zomboid for now if you want a good survival zombie game (Although it's not 1st person.)

I first saw this game quite some time ago and was immediately put away by how utterly ugly it looked.
Today I was just simply looking for more open-world games to buy and stumbled upon this again. Let me just say that I didn't even recognize it.

So far, I'm really enjoying it. Guns and ammo are too plentiful, but it's always a treat to hunt for green and blue rarity items. (just found a Mosin!) For this being in Alpha, it really shows a lot of promise. Developers are also quite nice and active, as I could tell from creating a thread asking about unloading guns and got a response shortly after from a dev.

Overall, yes, I'd recommend. But only buy the game if you're willing to wait for a lot of features.

Warning right now I am writing this after playing build 15 with hotfix A.

Right now this game has tons of potential. If the devolpers meet their goals that they laid out in the road map then this game will be one of the best zombie games out. Unfortunately the bugs really bring this game down. Once the graphical errors are fixed I could then reccomend this game but untill then I would not spend the 15 dollars the devolper is asking for. The bugs really take you out of the game, not very immersive. When you walk trees will come in and out of existance, grass and many other objects dont spawn more than 5 feet infront of you so you are constanly surronded by a circle of objects that go away after moving. Multiplayer does not work, the characters have glitched models and players easily become invisible and out of sync after fighting zombies. The devolpers seem to put a lot of effort into this game so if you can deal with the bugs go ahead and buy it because in the future it will be a great game but right now it is to buggy for me to recomend.

If you want gameplay I recorded my 1st time playing. -
