Okay, if you guessed the mysterious addition to the nav bar on our website was going to be “a store,” you’re awesome. Or sentient. Or both! Anyway, I’m delighted to announce that tomorrow is the grand opening of the long-requested State of Decay gear store, courtesy of our publisher. As announced, we will be live streaming tomorrow from the Lab as guests of the Microsoft Studios Twitch channel at (EDIT) 2:30 PM PDT/5:30 PM EDT/10:30 PM UTC. We’re just going to hang out, play the game, and take a look at some of the working samples the people doing the store sent for us to approve.
One of the first things I learned when I joined the Lab was how incredible the survivor community was. I have hardly ever met a group of people more generous with their time and talents. I’ve learned a lot about survival preparation from you! One of the many tidbits I picked up was how to build an emergency stockpile of food – dry goods, bottled water, dehydrated packs, and canned goods. But it’s not something we do once and forget. Every year or two, it’s important to refresh the stash, to use the old food and replace it with new.
As we head into the holiday season, I know many of you already have plans to help others by refreshing the canned food stash…by donating the older stuff. Other players have mentioned participating in various canned food drives.
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.
