What is ZDay?
Z Day is an Online 3D FPS Zombie Survival game. Players are thrown into the centre of a post apocalypse city after a deadly virus outbreak has occurred. Furor city, once inhibited by the human race, now is home to thousands of blood thirsty infected humans on the prowl for any remaining survivors…
With the virus enhancing the physical abilities of the infected, players will be no match for them if playing alone. ZDay will require excellent teamwork, bravery and skill as players attempt to survive in the infected-filled city.
Players will have to work together to clear out buildings, search for supplies, barricade doorways and survive. Barricades can eventually be broken, so hiding in one building with little supplies will not turn out pretty in the end…
Players will also have an element of RPG styled game play as strength and hunger levels will be present. Strength reflects how much players can carry in an inventory and the speed in which they will be able to travel. Carry more – travel slower. Players will have to run the risk of leaving items behind or work as a team and share supplies amongst each other….The possibilities are endless!
Just like any other human, hunger is an important stat players will have to keep a close eye on. Failure to keep energy at a suitable level will cause speed reductions and will impact the survival rate a player will have out on the streets. A slow and sluggish player is no match for a sprinting, hungry infected being.
Players who unfortunately get bitten by the infected will slowly notice the way their character behaves changes. Unless players can find and use an Anti-virus in time, players will slowly die and become a zombie themselves, and thus reverse the survival role placed upon them to cause mayhem across the city.
Use your survival instincts, build a survivors' base, form a search party to go out on supply runs for food, wood, anti-viruses, weapons, more survivors etc. Gather up, meet friends and work together for survival...
Teamwork is a must...

Just want to spread the word about ZDay, an MMOFPS that I'm work on with a team of 6 other developers. Last month we had our first alpha test with about 10 testers running around trying not to get mauled by zombies.
The game is being developed using Torque's TGE 1.5 game engine.
Below is a bit about the game and a few screenshots taken in the development period leading up to the alpha....
