    Looking for an animator? Sounds reassuring, considering I was hoping class 3 would be out this year! =/

      We aren’t ready to talk about the release date yet, but I can definitely confirm that Class3 won’t be out this year. We’re making great progress, but that’s a little ambitious, even for us :)

      “class 3 won’t be out this year”

      We’re not ready to talk about release dates yet, but as soon as we have those details we’ll share them with you here on the website.

      I know the waiting is tough, but hang in there! :)

      I’m upset I found out about this game so soon….I can’t wait that long for a game like Class 3

      Emily – “We’re not ready to talk about release dates yet, but as soon as we have those details we’ll share them with you here on the website.
      I know the waiting is tough, but hang in there!”

      That sounds like “When it’s done” to me :/ and we all know what that means. Well – I’m going to light a candle so it will come out before the next xbox hit’s the counters :) which is presumably around 2015.

      @Janka: Nope, that’s not what I was saying. As Jeff puts it in his Rude Q&A, we have an ambitious schedule and are serious about getting Class3 out quickly, but we can’t commit to any dates yet.

    Hmmm, that killing move with the knife looks awesome. I hope we can do it ingame.

    Red Dead Redemption has the best animations i think; When you shoot enemies they never fall the same and it always looks brutal. Euphoria really is awesome i wish more games would use it.

    The way the horses move..just like everything about it was beautifully animated hope the same goes for the undead game..please use Euphoria :)

      I get the feeling Undead Labs will out do rockstar, even though RDR had amazing ragdoll movements, gotta love undead nightmare ;p

    Really good luck to the future animator. I also wish I could animate, last thing I did was the skelton frame of a hand like 15 years ago… and I can’t draw either.

    And I’d rather have a well polished game than an early game. I got about 55 years ahead of me to see the best zombie game ever.

      This seems like a dream job. :)

      Too bad I can’t animate or draw very good.

      Good luck to those who try to get this job! :D

      Also, Class 3 not this year?! *died*

      *turns into zombie*

      *moans something*

      *translation* Huh? What the heck?!

      it’s not news that the class 3 would not likely be done this year. It’s been said and hinted at a few times in recent articles. Having said that, for those of us that wait with anticipation for games were passionate about, it can be tough cause usually atleast once a day our mind goes into hyper drive thinking about all the possibilities.

      It will come soon enough. Undead Labs keep us informed like you’ve been doing. You guys can already see how appreciative the fans are in finding out any old thing.. bigb or small. We want to know everything.

      Thanks.

      I am a verry talented drawer, and have a vast imagination. but unfortionetly i dont know the first thing about animating.. but if i did you can bet i would be on this job in a second.. and another flaw to me, is i am still only in high school, but i have my whole life ahead of me

    UL job-holding skills aside, I would love to be a fly on the wall in the studio. I loved the vid uploaded a few weeks ago. The behind the scenes things are always interesting to me.

    You should give out a beta so people like us can help you make it better.

    Animation is important i would like a realistic weapon kick and to see the weapon fall to the ground and thud when the zombie Tackles someone
