New Level Teaser!
New Level!


Here is one of the new levels I've been working on: Desert Town! It needs some more play testing, but so far I'm pretty happy with it!

Still making a bunch of progress! Lots of networking quirks to work out still, but it's getting there.

Stay tuned!

ZE2 Xbox Port
I have news!

I have decided to port the original ZE2 Xbox version to PC after all. What does this mean? This means that I'll be done very soon. I have already begun implementing Steam's API and networking and have made good progress so far.

Anticipated questions below:

-Why?
There are a couple reasons why I've decided to just straight port the Xbox version. Firstly, the "ZE2" I was working on was basically a ZE3. The scope was *massive* and wasn't even remotely the game that I pushed through Greenlight. I felt ethically strange about working on a game that was so radically different than what was originally Greenlit. Secondly, as I said before, the scope was just too big. It would have taken me way too long to get the game where I wanted it.

-Why did it take you this long to reach this conclusion?
This is a classic case of me being overly ambitious. :( The new engine and game I was working on (that I internally started calling ZE3) is a massive undertaking and it's not fair to have people wait so long on it. I'm sorry that it took me so long to reach that conclusion, and I hope you realize I didn't make any decision lightly.

-What about the new level engine and loot and other things you've been working on?
The new fancy level engine will be utilized for a future project. Possibly ZE3, but more likely, an unrelated game. In other words, I will still be able to utilize all the work I've done on the new stuff for my next project.

-What's left to be done on releasing Zombie Estate 2?
The big, giant thing left to be done is finishing up online multiplayer. It's *very* difficult to get working well, but I've made good progress so far. This is the bulk of my remaining work. Additionally, I have to finish integrating Steam's API. I'm even looking into Leaderboards for Infinite Wave mode.

-Is there a release date yet?
Not yet! I'm not entirely sure how long it will take to get networking (and other Steam features) functioning. But soon!!

-Will you add new stuff for the PC release of Zombie Estate 2?
Absolutely! I will be adding at least 2 new maps, a handful of new characters, new zombies, and plenty of new weapons and hats. Later, after the game is released, I have some other ideas to add as well.


I would like to thank you guys. You guys are all awesome fans, and I know I don't comment/update as much as I should, but trust me, I do read your comments! It's very encouraging to see everyone rooting me on and sharing their love for the game. I hope you can be patient a little longer for me to get this game out and move on to my next big project!

I'm sorry I don't have any sexy screenshots of the new levels and what not. I'm going on a much needed vacation soon and I wanted to get this announcement out asap. I'm focusing on the hard part first (networking) which isn't very fun to show off.. But I'll try to post teasers when I get closer.

Also, feel free to post character and weapon ideas! I've already gotten private messaged about various neat ideas and I would love to add some of them! If I pick your idea(s), I will obviously add your username to the credits! (Assuming I hadn't already added/come up with the idea first.)

Once again, thank you guys so much. Means a lot to me that you care so much!

Stay tuned!

@esotericist,@Darklordthe2 That's a good point esotericist. I mean come on this guy is trying to work so hard yet many things can interferre. Not to mention he's alone on the devlopment of it and it's a great game with many fans and things that would take time to program and such. So I would have patience. Btw this is coming from a pessimist, so i'd trust the statement.
Amizqui Aug 22 @ 10:21am 
@Emperor Tang So it's either coming soon or has been halted in some way. That would suck...alot.

Omg..................IM SO F*CKING EXCITED!!! I played the orginal, Loved it. I still remeber soloing a hoard after my team died with just a pistol and my adventures with the Minibomb. So you tell me the sequel on steam will have a BUNCH more features,has 3d and clearer graphics with more maps,characters,weapons etc and UPGRADES TO OVER 80 WEAPONS AND YOUR CHARACTER!? OMFG GIMMIE NOW. Please...... :3
For those who didn't look he psoted a annoucment not long ago about hes still working on it, even has a updated system.

@Darklordthe2 You know, that kind of pessimism can't be good for the morale of a developer trying to work in the spare time life gives them. Try to be upbeat. Positive. It's good for the soul.

So its safe to say that this game is not coming out. its been way to long for a game like this. he could of put it up as an alpha build like almost all other games like this. i have given up on this game.
