It'll only be good if death is permanent. You die, new character.

Yeah and your old character joins the undead. You could be wandering about and go "Hey! That's my BeerChin McLargeHuge character" before caving his head in. ^_^

I have just grabbed me self a copy of this (Cheers Neoboy) and I was wondering if people could help me out with the mods and what not.

Someone I believe found a way of making the graphics really nice at no cost too performance. Or something like that. Can people point me in the right direction.

Got the game during the sales and started playing it but does anyone get static popping up only when they enter a building or room. Tried all the fixes so far in the steam forums to stop it giving me static constantly but this one persists to drive me nuts :evil:

EDIT: swapping from 8 channels to 6 fixed it :)

I've just picked this up on Steam, its good stuff so far but the save system is making me want to punch the screen.

The exploding zombies have just appeared so I have to throw weapons at them, that means that when I die I can lose all my costly zombie bashing creations as they're on the floor and I don't have the option to pick them up. You can't, so it seems, re-load old saves, once the game's saved its self your old game states gone forever???

Throw stuff at them???? Just run right past them real close especially if they are in a bunch of other zombies and they'll stop expand and take out all round them without you having to get dirty at all.

Yea it is really annoying how the game saves :( I've stopped throwing my good weapons at mobs as I seem to have way to much trouble in locating them through the floor at times. Had a really great samurai blade that went through the floor and no amount of crouching and looking around the zombie would show it up.

Have managed to complete it now and hopefully there is a sequel in the works as it was really fun :)
