A downloadable game for Windows

Undead Development is a zombie survival game with a creative building system for the HTC Vive.

This demo shows off the the introductory level where you can scavenge for loot, break apart furniture, board up your home, and defend against the undead. Use the dynamic nailing system to come up with creative ways to defend yourself.

This demo is in beta. The gameplay features are all implemented but I am still polishing mechanics and finding issues. Let me know if you find problems or think something should change to improve gameplay. Once I fix major issues and polish some mechanics I will start developing more content (lots more weapons/tools and bigger levels) to eventually release an early access version onto Steam.

Steam page: http://store.steampowered.com/app/682140/Undead_Development/

Known Issues:

  • Pausing the game when enabling controllers can cause both hands to map onto one controller. Restart the game while both controllers are already turned on.
  • Some colliders will not line up with the art making nailing awkward.
  • You can lose items to the floor a bit too easily.
  • Pushing the nailing system to its limits (however small) and you'll probably get some weird stuff happening.

This game is about as bare-bones as it gets right now.

...AND I FREAKIN' LOVE IT. That nailing system is a stroke of genius. Can't wait to see what the dev adds to this. Made by just one guy too, impressive!

Here's 20 mins of gameplay, in case you want to check out the game but can't afford the hefty price of ABSOLUTELY FREE WHY AM I EVEN POSTING THIS JUST CLICK THE DOWNLOAD BUTTON ABOVE AND TRY IT OUT YOURSELF

Is there any possibility that in future, this game will also be played with keys along with VR? VR sure is amazing but not many people can afford it. So I'd like to see if the game comes out to be played with Keys n Mouse ;D However amazing job on the Demo

When I start the game, my character get stuck in the ground.

try restart the game, somethimes also i dont have heand and restart game and then is okey, but it is raw alpha / demo so it lot of bugs...

Use the trigger when your hand is on it or you are holding it.

Hey dev :) Finally got round to giving your game a crack, and it was actually a lot more enjoyable than I expected it to be. It still lacks depth, but that's to be expected, given that it's a very early access demo intended to show off the game mechanics and not much else. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it in the future!

Hiya! I played Undead Development AND I REALLY REALLY LOVED IT! I can't wait for more stuff! :D

Here's my video if you want to check it out -

Haha thanks for sharing. Glad you had fun. Sorry your ultimate weapon got stuck! I plan to address held items getting stuck in a future update.

The game is great  and will be super cool if add COOP.

Also i want to help you to improve that cool game, where do i write here or on Stam ?

I agree with this a lot. It would be really cool :)

(Edited 1 time)

The Steam forums are preferred for feedback and discussion. It's a bit easier to discuss different topics with separated threads.

I would love to do co-op but for now it isn't a planned feature. Depending on how well Early Access goes I may look into what it would take to add co-op during Early Access or after release. Sorry I know it is a feature people really want.

Damn! This looks awesome! Reminds me of that game called Dead Block.

Looking cool game, very interesting, just dont abandon the game and to be extra expensive like "69  Ways to Kill a Zombie"

Your game have great potencial so keep it great work and ppl will buy because is interesting game.

And be great when you kill zombie that drop ammo, because need ammo for weapons, and little more time betwen wave.

Thanks CrazyManOPS, glad you like the game! Zombies actually already have a chance to drop ammo and other weapons / tools though maybe they should drop stuff more often. I will note down wanting some more time before the wave. Thanks for the feedback.

its fun keep it up

This might be a odd question, but I am trying to make a thumbnail but cant find a .PNG file for the title. You wouldnt happen to have one that you can send me would you? I just would like to have the title and not some crappy font that doesnt do this game justice.

Hi Jonathon, I made a quick imgur gallery with some assets. Hopefully that helps! http://imgur.com/a/Z4pmk

Yes, thank you! Now I can finally make a decent looking thumbnail.

Is there a way to get this to work on the Oculus Rift?

I hadn't realized this was for the Vive and when launching the game, nothing happens on the Rift the game window is just open

Hi, unfortunately the game does not yet support the Oculus Rift. I am interested in supporting the Oculus Rift but I do not own one yet. If the game does well once it enters Early Access I will likely purchase a Rift so I can try to support it as well.

Ok! Isn't there a way for games to automatically (while not very well) support the Oculus Rift?

Most vive "exclusive" games on steam work pretty well on the Rift if it works through SteamVR (Not exactly sure how that stuff works)

Hmm not sure. I'll see if I can find anything like your talking about.

The steamvr/openvr APIs natively support Rift. If you're developing on Vive, you should be using those anyway so this may be a bug?

Yeah thats what I was thinking

Ok. I have redownloaded and retried running the game, and it seems to work just fine now (SteamVR opens up and the controllers I see in game are the official Oculus ones). Great game btw! I have a small reccomendation, I do not know if it would be hard, but it would be really nice if when you hold a shotgun, you could grab the barrel/forehand of the shotgun so it locks your in game hands onto the shotgun like you would hold it in real life. This would definitely add to the presence feeling in your VR game :) This would also work great on any other dual handed gun you have in the game

Runs Smoothly for 3-5 minutes then crashes.

(+1)

Oh no, sorry about that! Can you provide any other information relating to the crash? Any gameplay elements that might be triggering it? Are you using Windows 64 bit or 32 bit? Unfortunately I only have one system I can test the game on and I have never had a crash personally. Inside of the UndeadDevelopment_Data folder there should be a file output_log.txt. Would you be willing to email that to me? You can send it to LadrikDev@gmail.com

Restarting SteamVR fixed it, sorry for wasting your time. :/

No problem. Glad you got it working!
