Hopefully people haven’t been too burned by The War Z to give up on zombie survival games entirely, because State of Decay (by Undead Labs) is looking quite interesting. It’s aiming to be a third-person action game in a dynamic open world, and as such, it’ll feature a collection of survivors; all with different characteristics and personalities.
In a new developer post at the Undead Labs site, the team details the general philosophy and design mechanics behind each State of Decay character. You won’t get to “tailor-make” anybody – instead, you’ll meet a variety of people and have to assess who to bring into your group.
The post goes extremely in-depth into how the various skills, stat points, perks and personality quirks will interact and affect one another. Give a read by heading over here.
If you missed the team’s last video (featuring burning car action,) here it is again.
