Genre:4 Player Co-Op Twin Stick Shooter
I was the Lead Designer on this project. Our primary goal was to take the single arena style gameplay of the original Zombie Apocalypse and expand it to a much bigger world you could travel through. We also wanted to make it a 4 player game but knowing we needed the Single Player to also be the full experience we hit on the idea of allowing the player to play the entire squad. While it presented a lot of problems it also became on of the more unique twin-stick shooters in the market. Players needed to use each characters firepower, special abilities, and melee attacks to be successful. They also had to protect their squad mates from death.
