Minecraft with Zombies?
Remember Minecraft? That often talked about (to death) sandbox game that everyone and their mother has tried and either got so immersed in it that they aren’t heard from for weeks (mining forever), or are like meh (like I) and just kind of brushed it off as okay? You know – that game that is now mercilessly being ripped off by everyone under the sun?
Well here’s another reiteration, but yet is not. It is more Minecraft was tossed into a blender with Halo, then poured onto a zombie soufflé. It is an up to 20 player experience where you can create custom maps where you shoot each other. Various settings like death match, zombie survival and even on aptly named ‘infection’ will keep you on your toes. Also fully destroyable environments.
The Miner Gun – build shelter with it and attack with it. What a strange duality.
It’s like getting the fun of multiplayer shootouts AND building things without paying the $60 price tag. The community that has built up around this game is a testament to how received it is. Also the people behind the game, JForce Games seem to have the customer service thing down pat as well.
Despite my meh attitude about Minecraft, I’m rather digging this game. The blocky style may take a big of getting used to but the fact that you can build your own safe house while you fight the zombies hordes (and enemy players) is just right up my zombie hunter alley.
