Content Update - The Plague continues to spread

The plague continues to spread across the globe. Over 9000 Zombies! experiences a host of new changes and additions. We request the help of all remaining survivors to continue the struggle against the unrelenting horde.

Significant changes have been made to the netcode. These changes are made in hopes of improving lag issues experienced by some players. With significant changes in code might come some new bugs so we invite everyone to leave feedback on the games discussion forum.

  • Massive improvements and changes in the netcode should increase the quality and stability of multiplayer games.
  • 2 new weapons: The Gauss SMG and the Conflagerator! Unlock these weapons by slaying over 9000 zombies in a single game.
  • 2 new turrets: The Auto-repair turret and the Multi-turret. The Auto-repair turret repairs nearby walls and turrets to help maintain your base when surviving for long periods of time. The Multi-turret automatically selects the best weapon among the Shotgun, the railgun, and the grenade launcher, depending on the range to the nearest zombie.
  • New map - Lapland - As survivors moved to northern regions of the globe to escape, the plague has followed. Brand new tileset and new sprites, also available to use in the Map Editor for Steam Workshop.
  • Improved sound effects for nearly all weapons and many effects. Sound effects should now feel more powerful and pack more punch and have a wider dynamic range.
  • Weapon unlock requirements have been lowered. Easier access to more powerful weapons has been made to each tier of weapons.
  • Zombie Historical Figures now spawn at a slightly greater rate, have a bit lower HP, and upon death, explode in a massive cloud of gore and blood as well as dropping a large cache of resources.
  • Tons of improved particle effects including, increase blood and gore, smoke trails, weapon tracer trails, shrapnel / spark effects, and more.
  • Improved / changed graphics for certain sprites.
  • Projectiles have been made to be more visible.
  • Now 3 varieties of fixed map walls. Also accessible in the Map Editor for construction.
  • Added support for a new resolution, 1360x768 . As always feel free to request a resolution in the game’s discussion forum.
  • Adjusted the properties for certain weapons.
  • Fixed a bug where light sources and shadows in local-coop were being rendered incorrectly
  • Fixed a bug where explosions were only being partially generated when the center originated near walls.
  • Several bugs fixed related to multiplayer / netcode.

Over 9000 Zombies! comes with an easy to use map editor that gives you the tools you need for making new killing arenas to share with the world. Make them funny, make them fiendishly hard, it’s all in your hands.

About This Game

Over 9000 Zombies! is top-down arcade action blown out of all reasonable proportions. An endless horde of zombies is coming your way, how long can you survive?

So you might have already sussed out that there’s a lot of undead after you. To stay alive you’re going to need this arsenal of over 20 weapons. Some you might recognize but others are very experimental. Whether you want to shoot, burn, blow up or microwave the zombies there’ll be a weapon for you.

Keeping the barrel of a gun between you and the zombies is a good start but you’ll want to stay out of the open when things get especially crazy. Scavenge scrap metal to build barricades for protection and deploy automated turrets for extra crowd control.

You don’t have to go it alone. Bring both trusted friends and talented strangers into your fold and team up against the hordes with 2 player online co-op and 4 player local co-op.

This level of slaughter needs some decent beats. Using cutting edge research techniques we have been able to isolate the optimum audio for efficient undead butchery. Scratch that trigger-finger itch to the sound of intense electro-rock from Clearside.

The zombies will never stop. They’re only going to get faster and nastier. Keep your eyes peeled for flaming zombies, highly poisonous zombies, zombie animals, giant eyeballs and even the risen remains of political figures. You’re going to die out there so make sure you leave with a bang.

Create your own unique levels to test your mettle and the power of the zombie hordes. Upload them to the Steam Workshop and show the world your creations.

Pre-Release Review
This game is awesome. Great time-killer and has a variety of guns and power-ups. Get it on sale while you can. I promise you'll have no regrets getting this game. That is all.

A solid top down shooter that's better for local co-op. This first impressions was done with a key obtained from evolve.pr.

Being able to build turrets and upgrade your weapons is nice, and the sheer amounts of stuff on screen was pretty good, but the question will be if there's enough here to keep the interest of people over time. Netcode in my experience is shaky, within house it was problematic.

Get if you are looking for a local coop with your buddies. Otherwise, wait until a sale.

I remember a game I used to play back in the day called Super Smash T.V. Crazy amounts of enemies, top down style, cool guns and lots of replayability. I also remember wishing in those days I could also create my own levels in the game, since it seemed really basic even at the time the game came out...

I see this game on sale and decided to take a look, and I was floored. Everything came rushing back to me as if I was a little kid again, intensely staring at an arcade machine with sweaty palms and shaking knees. Dry mouth from being frustrated and 100 percent satisfied with what I had going for me at the moment. The fast-paced decision making and lucky gambits started flowing through my hands; my mind felt like it was on fire.

After I get destroyed a few times in the early days I really get the hang of the defense systems in the game, and just go berserk. It seemed like the hordes were melting in front of my wall of turrets, iron defenses led to sharp counter-attacks and remarkable saves. Days flew by it seemed and the weapon upgrades just kept coming. I felt like I had finally returned to my gaming roots...and it felt good.

10/10 - Would forget what time was again.

They really sold themselves short calling this game "over 9000" zombies.

Yeah there are over 9000 zombies. But it's like saying over 9000 grains of sand on the beach. We're talking a lot of zombies here. Like hold down the grenade button and lay on that flamethrower and there are still too many zombies to see the ground. We're talking like, if these zombies were spontaneously generating from dirt, there's no way we aren't violating conservation of mass with all these zombies. We're talking more stories than grandpa has about the fourties zombies.

It's fun and simple. Would have liked to have seen more done with the building system, would have liked to see something to help with collection of drops, would have liked to see a higher turret limit than 6 (really, only 6?), but it is what it is and it works.

Wonderful game, simple and fun. Although, maybe not worth the £7. Try to grab it while it's on sale instead, I did, no regrets.
