AZIG (Another Zombie Invation Game) With a twist

Postby C0c1 » Sat Feb 06, 2010 5:18 pm

AZIG

We have all played zombie games made with 001 and besides the rare exception they have all been the same, Until now...

AZIG takes a totally new perspective on zombie invation games. You have played as the survivors, you have played as the zombie's but have you ever played as the rescuer? Now you can. In AZIG you piolt a small helecopter and pick up survivors before they are eaten by zombies. This game will feature custom graphics and platform gameplay. You basicly find survivors and lower the latter to save them. But its not quite so simple click on zombies to shoot them before they kill the survivors!
___________________________________________________________________________________________________


Many of AZIG's details have yet to be worked out. i'm thinking about possibly and upgrade shop or ground levels where you save survivors on foot. There also may be other modes like a zombie mode. If anyone has suggestions feel free to post. Until now enjoy this image of the survivors and the zombies!

Thanks. I don't quite know what style I would consider the graphics but thats about the aim im going for in the screen above. Oh and no real progress (except graphics) will be made until I get the beta with platforming. I was also just thinking about a fule gage?

Maybe different weapons, to kill the zombies faster? Like Defend Your Castle style in a way.

Saw the post title and was like, "Oh lordy...001 and zombies...."

But, after reading on, I was sold. Cool concept. Nice to see you finding a new way to approach a common theme.
Reminds me a little of Choplifter from back in the day...... There were no zombies in it, but the game play was similar, if simpler, to what you describe for this title.

Looking forward to more. 8)

I think, in this game, you can place more emphasis on getting the survivors rescued in time. Generally a rescue squad would have a vehicle (unless they're on foot) and would obviously be more durable than the survivors, but the survivors would be more vulnerable.
For the ground levels, you could increase the difficulty by placing emphasis on stealth.

Although, I didn't particularly like your graphics.
Maybe you can surprise the players with really cartoony looking graphics, but highly gory combat... it's a possibility, albeit I doubt most of us would be that sadistic.

Yeah drawing isn't my thing but I wanted to do (and for a game like this had to do) all custom graphics so I chose a style I could draw (sort of) the really gorey combat (seen in iPhone and flash games) is a possibility.

I think the graphics are pretty neat. Especially because they are unique :)

Sounds neat, but you might need to change the title later on, when you have everything gathered together. AZIG...doesn't really fit the image. lol.

Well the name is associative of the title... And the title fits, don't you agree?

Yes the name is associative with the game, but nope, because the main point of this game is rescuing, even though there are zombies in it, one will believe that it is a shooting time or survivial type zombie game. I only touch this title to read the summary and check the screenshots, believing it's one or the other type of zombie game. Since it is not, I think it deserves a different title, because it still sounds original, but that's up to the creator of course. :]

I see where your coming from but Another Zombie Invasion Game sounds (to me) like it may be out of the norm. Thus the with a twist in the fourm title.

@Metomunc Little red helecopter piloted by Jim :D


Sorry for the DP but this deserves its own post. This is McZombies where the game beginis. I don't have time to explain now but more details will be provided later

EDIT: okay more details time. The infection started with the most populare item on the McZombies menu the Big Mutan. Unfortunatly this turns everyone into zombies (darn) and Jim is now forced to save all those who have not eaten at McZombies and get them to safty. Stupid plot but it's supposed to be a funny search and rescue game. As we speak Stephen (SP?) is working on Little Red helecopter (yes that's the name) once he is done with that I will start on the actual game once I work a few more things out.

The description alone wasn't particularly funny, but I trust your sense of humor; that during the game, we could hear some nice dialogue in the cutscenes, e.g. "Hm... Tastes like brai... AARRRGH" or "Dang, these are so good I wish I was dead!" to bring in the 'mood' of the game.
"Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes."

I have a few funny things planned. But this is going to be serious game play just the graphics and dialog will add the humor.

EDIT: Presenting the star of the show Little Red Helecopter! thanks to Stephen Chapman!!!
