Building A New Kind Of MMO Aint Like Dustin’ Crops

I don’t know. Dusting crops sounds kind of like hard work to me. I mean, what is the “dust” anyway? Is it okay to breathe it? Or maybe crop dust can be a source of zombie plague…

In any case, we’d sure rather be making games than dusting crops, differences in difficulty notwithstanding.

We’ve been very busy this spring getting the financing for our studio lined up and refining the core game design. The good news is that we are almost across the finish line, and we’ll soon be able to announce our partner and start giving you more details on the design and development of the world’s first MMOZ.

It’s going to be an exciting summer at Undead Labs. Thanks for your patience, and stay tuned.

    Will you be at or showing anything at E3? I’m very interested in seeing how your ‘Zombieverse’ is coming along.

    Is there any avenue for contributing design ideas in the early phases? I’ve been dreaming up Zombie MMO ideas for some time and given that I doubt I’ll ever build one I’d love for them to be given consideration.

    I’m very excited to kill zombies with a nu. 2 pencils and maybe even a giant beach umbrella.

    Can I use a garbage can lid as a shield in one hand and a bat/double barrel shotgun in the other?!

    Thank God!!! You, made my day APB failed me ! It seems like every time a MMO is said to be for console it never happens !

    At least with dusting crops you won’t end up in a star or bounce to close to a supernova.

    I’m excited to see what you’ll do with an MMOZ.
