The Creator Of ‘Minecraft’ Made This Free Zombie Shooter In A Week


Markus “Notch” Persson, the creator of the video game phenomenon Minecraft, which has sold close to 20 million copies across PC and Xbox 360, likes to experiment with new game concepts. His latest project is a zombie shooter called Shambles, a game he made in about seven days for 7DFPS, an annual event where game makers come together to make first person shooters in seven days.

In Shambles, you’re tasked with exploring an urban environment that’s brimming with the undead with the sole purpose of killing everything that’s unfortunate enough to get in your way. It’s fun, it’s free and it’s pretty darn impressive for a game that was made in just a week.

I scored a 40 my first time through and after a few more attempts I managed to reach an 80. I’m pretty sure you can beat that. If you’re up to the challenge, you can try it out for yourself here.
