Soldak Entertainment is an indie developer making great games, mostly in the RPG genre. From the incredible Depths of Peril, the never-old Din’s Curse, light-but-fun Kivi’s Underworld to the sprawling space adventure Drox Operative. Now for their next game they are dipping into the undead with Zombasite, a post-apocalyptic fantasy action RPG coming in 2015 to Windows, Mac, and Linux.
According to Soldak’s Zombasite overview page:
The dark elves have always played god by creating and enhancing underworld slave creatures. As they watched a horde of zombies destroy the huge demon city Kraval, the dark elves were tantalized by the devastating power of uncontrolled zombies, and desired to control and increase it. When they wove their dominating magic into a few captive zombies something went horribly wrong!
They hadn’t known the powerful necromancer, Ciglio, had created these zombies. To control his huge armies of undead, Ciglio permanently bound his zombies and their infected victims to him. This binding was so powerful, their loyalty surpassed his untimely death. In the dark elves’ pride and lust, their magic twisted into Ciglio’s binding, fusing into a new, uncontrollable creation, the Zombasite.
Zombasite is a nasty, voracious, all-consuming Zombie Parasite. It doesn’t just reanimate the dead into mindless zombies. It is intelligent, insatiable, and unstoppable—infecting and killing the living, spreading faster and in more ways, helping the dead utilize many of their original skills, and mutating the dead with new powers. Dark elf zombies are terrifying!
You play as the leader of a clan trying to survive the apocalypse. The game makes this very difficult – followers die permanently, resources are scarce, and supply vendors are rare and have limited stocks. Monsters are dangerous, and you will encounter other clans and monsters fighting over what limited supplies are scattered around the world.
Here are some of the features:
– Survive the zombie apocalypse in a fantasy world
– Experience uniquely created worlds for every game, with different areas, monsters, items, and quests
– Explore a dynamic, evolving, living world
– Lead a clan of followers who have their own personalities and skills
– Navigate relationships with rival clans using diplomacy, trade, war, and raids
– Adventure with your friends with co-op multiplayer
– Your choices truly impact the game!
As noted the game is currently planned for a 2nd quarter of 2015 release, but that date could shift.
