Battle Zombies Through the ER in ‘Outbreak: The New Nightmare’

Unless devs are trying something new, it’s getting hard to be excited for games involving zombies. To be fair, being trapped in a hospital with the walking dead does sound like a creepy time. That’s what Dead Drop Studios LLC is hoping for with their game, Outbreak: The New Nightmare.

Recently posted to Steam Early Access, the successor to Outbreak just had a fresh patch released, which adds a host of bug fixes and features. The story for the game has you trapped in Arzt Memorial Hospital after a viral outbreak swept through a town in the central United States. You now face the walking dead and other creatures roaming the halls as you scramble to survive and uncover the source of the outbreak. With four different characters to play as (each with varying abilities), and an arsenal of weapons at your disposal (but limited inventory), you’ll have to think smart to survive.

The game will also have multiplayer support, allowing up to four friends to battle the undead and other monstrosities. This initial Early Access release includes the first campaign scenario, and a wave-based survival Onslaught mission. You can pick up the Early Access release for $7.19 USD. To find out more, you can visit the game’s official Steam page.

    Uhhhh yeah. I haven’t designed a game before or anything but maybe figure out how to make your characters walk and run in a way that looks natural before you show the game to anyone. They all look like they shit their pants. And their feet have no traction. Completely distracting.

    “So how is your zombie game different from the millions of others oversaturating the market right now?”

    “Well, see, in OUR game, our characters don’t know how to walk. So there’s that.”

    “That’s pretty scary.”

      I honestly had a hard time figuring out which were the humans and which were the zombies.

      LOL! that’s so true! the non-zombies look like they have 2 dump loads in their pants! LOL. also the characters seem to glide (moonwalk?) on the floor quite a bit.
