Aberford Thunderclap!
Description
Aberford is a 3D brawler/graphic adventure hybrid starring a group of housewives who fight to stop a zombie apocalypse in 1956.

When the men of Aberford, Ohio start turning into flesh-eating monsters, it's up to Peggy, Betty, Doris and Sylvia to save the day. And rather than skipping ahead to the post-apocalypse (like many games do), Aberford drops you right in the initial chaos and makes you part of the panic, cowardice, and heroism that go along with the end of the world. The game combines in-depth story-telling and complex moral choices with a dynamic, jump-in-and-play combat system to provide you with a fresh take on some of our favorite gameplay styles. And we're using fast, strong, aggressive enemies that aren't like any zombies you've faced before. Thousands of people are already extremely excited for us to Kickstart, and you should be too.

The Gameplay
Aberford uses dialogue options and decision making to let you play through an exciting, original story set in 1950s Ohio. It'll be up to you to guide the characters as they fight to stay alive, protect their friends and families, and solve the mystery of the zombie attacks before they overrun the city.

And when the zombies attack, the game transitions to open, timing-based combat, giving you the fun, visceral, terrifying experience of going to toe-to-toe with the raging infected. There's no waves of flimsy corpses or convenient piles of matching guns and ammo. Each fight is a struggle and each kill in a victory.

No offense, but what all you said on Tumblr and here are still not an arguments. I mean, while I see your point, reality can't be always mixed with fiction and there is shitton of bad people among women too and women are not some kind of sacred cows that even in for example zombified state they cant be touched or something and also, sorry, but you act and sound like some kind of SJW.

Open world environment, zombie outbreak carnage, awesome 1950s anesthetics, AND I get to play as 4 different female characters? THIS. This is the game I've been waiting for! Can't wait...
