If I posted on this blog more often than once a year, you would know that I have been anxiously waiting for State of Decay, the open-world zombie survival game from new developers Undead Labs. It is finally coming out tomorrow, and I have been voraciously devouring everything I can find about it, and everything I see just makes me more excited for it.
My favorite thing I have seen so far comes from today’s IGN video. This is a conversation between Marcus (controlled by the player at the time, who had gone out to pick up supplies dropped when another player-controlled character died) and Lily, an NPC on the radio back at base.
Marcus: I’m almost home.
Lily: Got anything good?
Marcus: Yeah, I got you a pony. Then it tried to eat me, so I shot it in the head.
Lily: That’s just disturbing on so many levels.
I had to pause the video until I regained my composure.
I’m going to hell.
