50 gamechangers: Dead State

Scan of Dead State from LeveL #76

Dead State

Format: PC
Developer: Dead Bear Productions
Premiere: TBD

In the same spirit as Day Z the world in Dead State is populated by zombies – but the game rather circles around the long-term psychological effects of the zombies presence on humans. Unlike Day Z Dead Bear’s game is viewed from a more isometric view and alternates between rpg with turn based combat and morally charged dialogues.

Dead Bear is actually DoubleBear. And while Dead State has a better release window than “TBD”, it’s still only specified as “summer 2014”. After a successful Kickstarter asking for $150.000 and receiving more than $330.000 the game is up on Steam with Early Access letting you play the first seven days of the game. Most games that tackle the zombie apocalypse either go for the action part, with a game or two that are more focused on the story and drama of a group. This really seems like it’s all the aspects of the zombie survival genre; scavenging, building a home base, meeting other survivors, and just doing what you can and need to if you want to live. Like the trailer says: No revenge, no saving the world, no greater evil that needs to be vanquished. Hopefully we’ll see a full release soon.
