Score Big in the Bowl of Decay

BoD badge


Two teams walk onto the field, only one makes it out alive…

Welcome to the first annual Bowl of Decay! You thought that the race to the Superbowl was brutal, wait until it’s a battle of survival between the humans and the zombies.

How it works:

You recruit four of your buddies into a 5 person team. Much like football, we’ve got a regular Season, Playoff Season and then a Big Game. In the regular Season, you and your mates will play against another team within your league.  Each win or loss counts towards your stats for the Playoffs.  After the 10 week period, we’ll take a break for the Holidays and when we return, the top teams in each League will play against each other until there is only one Human and one Zombie team left. Those two will go to the Bowl.

Life After Zombies


The following transmission is the first in a series of survivor stories compiled by the Trumbull County Librarian, Jamie McCraren. Her chronicles include audio and written files – letters from other survivors and her own personal experiences.


Testing, testing.


Good! Still working. Glad the drugstore had that stash of AA batteries.

This is Jamie McCraren, Life After Zombies recording three. It is now day 27 since the power went out. If you’re listening to this, well, good! The world didn’t completely end after all.

The Sun Sets on Moonrise


Hello Moonrise fans,

As you know, Moonrise has been in beta on Steam in the Early Access channel for the past few months. At the same time, the iOS version of the game has been available in limited release, in countries including Australia and Canada. During this beta period we’ve been gathering data on how people play the game. The free-to-play model, and the mobile market, are new territory for Undead Labs, so we’ve been paying close attention to these numbers to make sure we’re making a game people are excited to play, and also a game that we can operate profitably and sustainably with the level of support you expect.

What we’ve found is that while some people really love Moonrise, there were unfortunately many more people who played the game and then moved on after a few days. For a standalone, offline game that might be fine; but for an online game with significant server hosting costs and an expectation for ongoing development and new content, it can mean a game that not only doesn’t pay for it’s development costs, but might even cost money to operate. As you can imagine, that’s not something that makes sense for an independent studio like Undead Labs, nor for that matter would it be a good business decision even for a large publisher.

Solari Safari: Sagalee Ridge


DUNCAN: It is I, Duncan the Explorer, back once again to share knowledge of the wondrous Solari that one can find in a particular area. Today we’ll cover a dungeon in Taankwan Thicket known as Sagalee Ridge.

As it so happens, I’m quite familiar with this dungeon. When I was a younger explorer, I delved into these tunnels for weeks. I gathered samples from various depths, collected plant and fungus specimens…and did my best to avoid the Solari that lived there.

Solari Safari: Taankwan Thicket


DUNCAN: Hello, and welcome to the lush and beautiful Taankwan Thicket. As always, I’m Duncan the Explorer, and I’m here to learn about local Solari.  Guildmaster Laskian, thank you for joining me. Now is it just me, or are guildmasters getting younger and younger?

LASKIAN: I do not believe that the average age of all guildmasters has fluctuated significantly. Rather, I expect that the relative age of the guildmasters you meet may have changed slightly, at least from your particular perspective.
