What's it about this time? Graveyard Shift is a thumbstick shooter / tower defense hybrid set in a zombie-infested graveyard. The player builds his base during the day and at night the zombies attack. The game has been in development for some months now.
The player kills the zombies with guns. Instead of towers the player lays down tiles on the ground . Zombies spawn out of the ground but never on a player tile, although they can walk over them.
Tiles cost money, which the player gets by killing zombies and grabbing the coins they drop. Tiles can also be upgraded to benefit the player or affect the zombies. In the video below the player is setting down tiles and upgrading them to slow down the zombies:
The game will also feature a co-op mode with up to 4 players. In the video below there are two players, one of which is reading the tombstones:
Right now we have a basic prototype but there is much to be done: add all tile upgrades and guns, replace some of the art, add sound effects and music, etc.
