Zed or Alive: The Zombie Miniatures Game launched on Kickstarter just a few days ago, and has already met its initial funding goal! This campaign-based miniatures skirmish game is set in the years following a zombie apocalypse and is powered, at its core, by the Savage Worlds: Showdown! miniatures combat system.
This is Rust Devil Games’ first release, and is already ready to be distributed by digital download—no waiting around on this one! Not only are the pledge levels cheap, but the Savage Worlds: Showdown! rules are free from the Savage Worlds downloads links.
If you want to hear all about it, including interviews with the creators, be sure to listen to The Nerd’s Domain: Episode 66. The whole podcast is about the Zed or Alive Kickstarter. [Say, if you’re a journalist, blogger, podcaster, webmaster, news agency, or other creator of content that might feature well here, you should talk to Jodi Black. Nerd’s Domain did…]
Be sure to check out the Zed or Alive Kickstarter for details about backing and about the game itself. Did we mention that you can play as several different kinds of zombies, as humans, or even as a virus strain? That you can play with any minis you’ve got, including different scales? That there are several stretch goals that appear to be in easy reach and come at a remarkably affordable backer level?
Huh. Sounds like you really ought to visit the Zed or Alive Kickstarter instead of counting on this far-too-brief article to cover everything! Heck, they even tackle the “what do you mean another zombie game” question right on the front page, and they’ve even got a good answer!
