hi

We have a number of testers who have been very good to us in promoting and testing our previous games. We are going to extend the invitation to them first. However, there are some combination of devices and operating system that we still might need testing on and may ask for some additional testers. At the moment, I am not certain.

Thanks for the comments.

Alright awesome! If you do end needing more people I'd definitely love to help. Keep up the great work!

Sadly, yes. We didn't stray from the zombie survival formula on this one. Zombie AI, where they patrol and mindlessly charge is the easiest to make. That's likely why there are so many zombie games out there. However, because of the size and scope of our game, its still quite time consuming to ensure each area is properly set up for the AI.

We also have computer controlled human survivor AI. We felt this was a nice complement for those who just want to play single player.

We are still balancing the AI for multiplayer. As we hope the best antagonist for multiplayer will be other players themselves. As it will always be more challenging and entertaining to compete and outwit live human players then bots.

Thanks for you excitement!!!
