If I were to sum up in one word what Undead Labs is trying to be with their upcoming State of Decay, it would have to be ambitious. What other game can describe itself as an open-world-sandbox-survival-ho rror-stealth-RPG-tower-defense- zombie-simulator? Phew, I need a breath.
Slated for an early 2013 release on Xbox Live Arcade and PC, State of Decay is aiming to be that niche zombie game that nothing else has been able to yet. You aren’t just killing wave after of wave of the undead while running from Point A to Point B, nor are you just pushing forward threw a linear story (though there is one). In Undead Labs’ take, you’re living the zombie apocalypse. If you were disappointed that all of the end of the world predictions were off and want to find out for yourself if you could handle attacking corpses day after day – this may be right up your alley.
