Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Over 9000 Zombies! is a game about surviving and battling massive hordes of the undead and the best way to know if the game is on the right track is by player feedback. Guns could be rubbish, excessively powerful or too few in numbers and the players are always the best judges of this. This will allow us to maximize the amount of joy one can take from slaying the crowds of the zombies.”

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“A few months? This is a hard question to answer as it will depend on the kind of features players want in the game and how long it takes for them to be implemented properly. The current plan would be 2-3 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“More stuff. By the time Over 9000 Zombies! exits Early Access it should include things already planned like: more maps, vehicles, expanded multiplayer, plus anything else that people suggest during Early Access. The game currently has lots of room for growth and added depth!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Over 9000 Zombies! is technically still in Alpha but already has plenty of content to satisfy one's zombie killing desires. Single player is well established, including 20+ weapons, 6 defensive turrets to help battle the unending hordes. Two player online co-op is also in, although this is still very early so you can expect a few bugs with this initially.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“While in Early Access the price will be lower, it's only fair when there might be some bugs along the way. Once out of Early Access the price will go up.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Ideas, balancing, general improvements, anything to make your zombie killing experience more enjoyable. Over 9000 Zombies! is a game that can expand in various directions and the best way to get the right direction is to listen to the people playing and enjoying the game.”

Patch - Four Player Local Coop!

July 16th, 2014

Patch Notes - Local Cooperative play!

  • 4 Player Local cooperative play has been added! Features a new build interface and more.

  • Globably lowered volumes and adjusted levels to make sound more controllable for varying audio set ups.
  • Fixed some sound effect issues where volumes on certain sounds weren't being properly adjusted according to the options.
  • Fixed an issue where quitting to the main menu immediately started a new game
  • Fixed some other miscellaneous issues with menus
  • Improved some network performance issues

    Local cooperative play now allows you and up to 3 other friends (4 players total) to play Over 9000 Zombies! using Xbox game-pads. The game plays similarly to a multiplayer game. Players respawn after a given amount of time after dying and if all players are simultaneously dead, then it is officially game over and a new game will start. Resources are shared among players, otherwise it would be optimal for a single player to do all the collecting of scrap metal. This way all players that seize an opportunity to collect items benefit each other. Weapon unlocks are still individually acquired. Power-ups when collected, power up your entire squad.

    If you encounter any issues or bugs please feel free to post them in the game's discussion forum! All suggestions are welcome as well:

About the Game

This is Over 9000 Zombies! the game that uses special mathematical technologies to squeeze the maximum amount of undead chaos out of your PC. Experience top-down arcade action blown out of all reasonable proportions. How long can you survive against the unending zombie swarm?

No precision aiming needed here but you will need a variety of guns! To aid you in your fight against the undead there is a selection of 20+ weapons to enjoy. Burn'em, Shoot'em, Blow'em up, however you prefer to kill your undead, we have just the right solution for your zombie extermination requirements.

Standing around in the open is a good way to die in a zombie apocalypse, which is why you have some options to defend yourself.
Collecting scrap metal from corpses will allow you to build makeshift defensive walls and engineer automated turrets to help you cut down the crowds of zombies.

Sometimes you want to bring a friend along to an apocalypse, right? Well now you can. You and a friend can team up and battle the hordes via the power of the internet in 2 player co-op.
Prefer to play in the safety of your own home, then we have you covered with 4 player local co-op.

Nothing goes better with the sounds of death and guns than a rocking soundtrack, the intense electro-rock soundtrack from Clearside Music will keep you battling through the waves of undead.

As each day and night goes by the hordes of undead increase in numbers, ferocity and variety, who said trying to survive was going to be easy?

Early Access Review
Early Access games come in all manner of different states. I would say this one is in a perfect place to be entering Early Access. The game itself is already playable and fun, but I can still see where they can add even more in the future. The co-op works flawlessly, you don't have to jump through any hoops to play with a friend. I ran into very few bugs while playing and none of them were game breaking.

Over 9000 Zombies! is a Tower Defense like game, where the thing you're defending, in essence is yourself. You can place turrets, of which there are currently 6 to choose from, you can place a block barricade, and there are roughly 20 weapons to collect. Zombies drop health, grenades, scrap (with which to build), and on the rare occasion, new weapons.

I played only co-op, but I can see it being a little difficult for someone in single player. After one play through, we found ourselves searching for a more defensible building, as well as working out strategies to survive specific zombies on later, tougher days.

I look forward to future updates. I hope to see more turret types, more maps, a map editor, perhaps more zombie types and more zombie 'bosses'.

Overall, I highly recommend it!

Early Access Review
Over 9000 Zombies is a top down 2D shooter that is in development, and what was given to us on day one was great in my opinion, it is simple, it's easy to get into. Alot like Nation Red without the absurdly overwhelming difficulty to start out on. You collect scrap that zombies drop to fortify where you wish to dig in at, you can also build turrents and find new weaponry that zombies may drop. There are also an absurd ammount of zombies on screen at one time, there is veriations of zombies among the horde that don't feel so rehashed. A massive assortment of weapons that you can pick up that carry from game to game to make you stronger aginst the zombie threat plus new weapons to pick up ontop of that.

It is still quite in development, but I don't think it needs the early acess logo, it is solid enough to play on its own and cheap enough to afford, from what I see currently a great game is only going to get better, pop for it if you can afford it!

Also I would like to note that the devloper of the game, is listening to those who comment on it in the forums. They enjoy ideas and are looking to give the fans what they want to make a great game fantastic. Most developers really don't do this.

Early Access Review
While not quite a review, here is an overview and first impressions video. This was recorded 3-4 hours before officially going on Early Access.

In it you collect scrap metal, grenades, health, and new weapons from fallen zombies and enemies. You can use the scrap metal to build turrets and barricades to try and survive the hordes of thousands of zombies. It actually seems to work quite well, though right now it does have a few good and bad points.

-Surprising amount of content so far.
-Music is nice and has good production value, gives good energy to the fights.
-Vast numbers of enemies and explosions going on. Tons of carnage in later days.

-The Map needs more variety or randomness, right now they are just a few main areas that just work flat out better than others.
-The difficulty curve can be unforgiving if you don't plan.
-Maps needs some sort of tile smoothering or filtering to make it feel less sharp.

Those are just some of my thoughts, so far it plays nice and actually pretty fun. It's certainly quite full for an early access game these days.


Edit: I had said that the grenade launcher stops working. What I didn't think about was it using actual normal grenades as ammo, and it appears to use one grenade for a full magazine. So thats not a bug.

Early Access Review
Great time wasting game.
After 14 hours I have just made it to day 13 by myself, and suspect that I will need a fellow combatant to get any further (day 20)

Visually its not a great game, and the menus and interface could be better. That said, its fun, engaging and addictive.

If you like top down survivor shooters - add this one to the list

Early Access Review
I've played a whole lot of zombie survival games, so it's rare that I see anything new in these sorts of games that I haven't already seen dozens of times. Over 9000 Zombies doesn't really bring anything new to the table, but its straight-talking no-frills approach to the genre is laudable. You're plopped down in the middle of the hordes, and told to shoot and build your way to victory. There's a bit of tower defense going on too, through which you can put together a base to keep the undead back, and then hope for the best. My video playthrough can be found here: http://youtu.be/yDSJuETo3gA
