Zombasite, like Din’s Curse, is not very known but packs an enormous amount of depth into the game. However, readers should note that this is a preview because the game is still in Beta and Early Access. Right away, you can tell that Zombasite is action packed as there is action being seen and heard before you even begin on the starting menu. This gave me a feeling of “Hey, wait for me” and made me want to get started even more.
Take note that for a “zombie” game, you will notice more fantasy than almost all others because it shares a great deal with Din’s Curse which is a fantasy RPG. This is a good thing as it gives Zombasite much more depth than just waves of carnage and mindless zombies. For example, you will see messages of things going on constantly. One early message was Gator the Fire Warden, my nemesis, actually taunting me. If you were looking for a mindless zombie clone, you will need to look else where as Zombasite has something going on constantly. There are NPCs you can add to your party or team, different areas to explore, loot to get, and even rival teams that at first glance look like other players in single player mode. You can choose a team name when you start to lead your own. The messages will even announce accomplishments by the other teams.
With regular updates and a developer who passionate about improving the game, Zombasite will only improve from here. The biggest downside is a very common one with games of this nature which is not enough players on multiplayer. However, the single player mode is so well made that this not an issue like it is with most multiplayer only indie games. In fact, the team aspect gives a feeling that you are playing with other players if only to run across them from time to time.
