Undead Labs' "State of Decay" comes out of nowhere and breaks records


I don’t know how many of you out there have spent your entire weekend in your PJs, as I have, surviving the zombie apocalypse in State of Decay, suffice to say it’s rather addictive.

And the cool thing is that this game studio just kinda popped up out of nowhere and released this amazing game on XBox Live Arcade, and within 48 hours it was the second fastest selling XBLA game ever, after Minecraft.


Really inspiring stuff!


Shit thats awesome. The dream of every indie developer!


This game looks fantastic! Well maybe not looks, but I dig it. :smiley:
Hopefully the PC release won’t be too far off.


Someone posted about this game even before the studio was fully formed and they were just starting to hire people: http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=2&t=818612&highlight=zombie

In that thread, you’ll also see my zombie MMO idea and how similar it was to State of Decay. In fact, it was my post about my zombie MMO idea that prompted someone to post about Jeff’s new studio and the zombie MMO he was about to start making. I was so excited to know that someone was actually doing it for real (as opposed to me just thinking about it and not having the funds/connections to ever pull it off).
