Vous ne connaissez peut-être pas encore le RPG Zombie Survival “Project Zomboid” ?

Concrètement, Projet Zomboid c’est ça :

YouTube Preview Image

Un RPG Zombie Survival en vue 3D “Isométrique” développer par le studio indépendant “The Indie Stone”.
Dans cette version Alpha, vous incarnez un survivant qui tente de survivre le plus longtemps possible dans une ville infestée de zombies.
Un jeu très complet avec une touche de construction (Barricade aux fenêtres et portes, fortification, …), des multitudes d’outils et objects, du crafting et bien d’autres choses !
Un jeu vendu pour seulement £4.99 (6€).

Mais depuis le début de son développement, des événements entachent l’existence de ce jeu.
Entre le piratage intensif et les problèmes liés aux systèmes de paiement, c’est maintenant un cambriolage qui touche le studio indépendant.

Voici le communiqué du site officiel à propos de ce cambriolage :

Hi everyone,

Will here, the Project Zomboid writer-guy.

I won’t beat around the bush. The Indie Stone have just suffered a major set-back. The Newcastle flat where Lemmy and Binky live and work was burgled this evening, and so far the clearest things taken are two computers and Lemmy’s credit card.

Project Zomboid was regularly backed up from machine to machine, but rarely – sadly and infuriatingly – externally. We have lost an awful lot of work. Mash and Binky don’t even know this has happened yet.

Chris (Lemmy) is quite distressed to be honest – we’re still dealing with something that was discovered little over an hour ago. After his tweets on the subject we both agreed it’d be best if I wrote a blog here to calm fears. He clearly isn’t able to currently. (It’s also probably worth saying that there were no PZ player personal details etc. on the machines).

This will clearly severely delay the next update, which was very near completion. I personally only just finished my work on it today (one of the final things on the ‘to-do’ list) and had it ready for input tomorrow.

Project Zomboid, however, will come back stronger.

I was going up to Newcastle on Monday for a milestone meeting in any case, but that’s clearly now taken a much more serious turn. In the coming days we will be getting in touch with everyone here, on Facebook, via Desura and wherever else we have tendrils to let people know what’s happening.

During this time we will clearly be asking for the understanding and patience of our community. We are gutted, we are despondent and – most of all – we are sorry that this has thrown yet another bump into the road towards PZ completion. We also REALLY want to wring the neck of the arsehole that did this to us.

More as it happens,

Best,

The Indie Stone

Je ne vais pas rentrer dans les détails (ou faire la traduction de cette news), mais je peux peut-être vous dire que la prochaine mise à jour (version 0.6) est “sévèrement” repoussée…
