State of Decay is a 3rd person adventure game set in a post apocalyptic open world… with zombies. The goal of the game is not unlike this year’s indie gem Don’t Starve; build a base, collect supplies, and survive for as long as humanly possible. Perma-death heightens the tension as each and every zombie battle could quickly turn you into worm food. In terms of survival horror, State of Decay does something that other titles of the genre have been trying to accomplish for years, it manages to make the losses real, and the horror truly horrifying.
Our fellow podcaster (Ash would call him our friend) on the Totally Rad Show, Dan Trachtenberg, just unleashed this short film done for Portal. Called Portal: No Escape. It is crazy high quality and I definitely recommend cranking this thing up to 1080p, leaning back and enjoying the show.
