Zombie Pandemic is a Survival Horror Game
ZP is and will be roleplaying game and not a survival simulator. However Zombie Pandemic is also a survival horror game.
When we say survival horror we mean the challenge of managing a limited inventory and ration scarce resources such as ammunition and though you can still build a character with super human skills (it’s still a roleplaying game) your character should remain vulnerable and under-armed.
While you can loot/scavenge resources from left behind vehicles and empty shops we aim at building a game which reflects a city in chaos and offering scarce resources.
Enemies can appear unexpectedly or suddenly appearing from corners of the city as you scavenge or try to navigate the map.
It also means that hiding in safehouses and running from enemies in some situations are the best thing to do.
The level design of the game is open leaving you to explore the game world testing the player's navigational skills and uncovered areas to explore.
The planned game event system will challenge the players survival skills offering simple but crucial choices as this game world is explored.
