    A new Kickstarter update for Dead State has gone live today, and, as we've been promised, it includes the first look at the game's combat.

    Warning: it involves zombies and shooting and might hurt your delicate sensibilities.

    Looks good, but that zombie moan sound effect is almost unbearable.

    Hearing him brings back memories of VTMB.

    It's not the best showing. Elementary TB combat against mindless melee monsters. They are funded, so I guess it doesn't matter that much, but that also means that they didn't need to do this at all. This game still needs a hook IMO.

    Agreed. I also noticed that the "survivors" walk so casually, which disrupts the whole..." oh hey the worlds gone to shit, towns and cities are full of FLESH EATING UNDEAD" Let's just stroll over to them and ask for a light.

    It shows their progress, that they already have working basis. I thought they are only in the planing phase.

    Loving the fast food-ad!

    Dunno how about you, guys, but to my view the zombie genre has been extremely over-exploited.

    An unbearable 'been there, done that' feeling arises when I see zombies in games or movies. Not even a hint of suspense, fear or even digust. Just plain nothing.

    Yup, but Dead State is more about survival than killing zombies, so that's ok for me.

    I'm very excited.
    I hope they'll show the safe camp part of the game soon with keeping the other people alive and happy.

    Agreed. Shadowrun's video made me want to buy it, this one made me shrug with indifference. I think there is something to be said for an attractive UI too, which this is lacking.

    As I said in the other thread, looks like Fallout with zombies. I approve. :p

    From the kickstarter description it sounds more like The Walking Dead minus the drama and linearity, which I also approve. :)
