Dear Living Dead fans (if there are still any left), I'm thinking about making a sequel to this game. This gameplay will be very different from the first. The first game was aerial view, the sequel is a platformer. The first game was based of Call of Duty Zombies, and the second is a mix between The Killing Floor, Left for Dead , and a few hints of call of duty.
There will be many other changes as well. Hopefully, many more weapons will be added along with the ability to carry a primary, secondary, and melee weapon at the same time (Left for Dead style). With this, I'd also like to add a partner to assist you (haven't decided if he'll be purchasable or you start out with one). Also, waves will have time intervals in between where players can restock and prepare for the next round (killing floor). Another big change will be the overall feel of the game. The Living Dead 2 will be so much more fast paced then the 1st. The first game focused on getting power to kill spawned enemies and had a slow beginning. The Living Dead 2 will focus on mowing down masses of enemies (Left for Dead style again). The zombies will be weaker, but there will also be many more of the. Also, a new added challenge with vertical maps will make escaping onslaughts harder to accomplish than just running in circles. The zombie AI will also be improved so they always come after you (in the original there where instances where zombies didn't chase you), zombies won't drain health but will have incremented attacks, and hopefully different paced zombies and different zombie types. The original releases of the game may just use leftover sprites from the first game, but at some point I hope to change out a lot of the graphics.
If you guys are excited for this, then let me know. If a lot of people want this, then I will bump it higher on my priority list during my free time. The Living Dead was hands down my favorite game I've ever made, and as a result, was my most completed game. I play it a lot when I have 20 minutes to kill. Also, if you have any suggestions or anything you'd like to see in this game, let me know!
Let's survive the zombie apocalypse!
