From Strategyinformer.com: "Now this is a game I’ve been looking forward to for a while, mostly because it’s been in development for ages. People mocked South Park: The Stick of Truth for being announced in 2011 and only released this month, but Dead State was announced in 2010 and still isn’t finished. It’s no Duke Nukem Forever or Aliens: Colonial Marines but that’s still a long time. To be fair development only really kicked up a notch once developer DoubleBear's Kickstarter last year was completed and they got some proper funding. You may not know DoubleBear but they’re made up of veterans from Black Isle, Troika, and Obsidian, and have worked on Fallout, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines and Neverwinter Nights 2. So when I say that Dead State is like Fallout but in a zombie apocalypse I insist that you get excited. ".
