The dead live...

"Urban Dead ( http://www.urbandead.com ) is a browser-based, grid-mapped, free-to-play multi-player game where you play the survivor or victim of a zombie outbreak in a quarantined city centre." As I mentioned a few days ago... I started on a similar project a while back. Unfortunately, I just didn't have the time to work on it to much so it didn't every really come to much. I think only one person has seen it in action the movement system wasn't even done. Anyway. Let's get to making a character. Classes are broken into four sections: Military, 'Science', Civilian, Zombie. The living classes are further broken down into sections to choose from. Zombies of course can only choose corpse as a sub-class. If you choose military for instance you can then choose between Private, Medic, or Scout. Each sub class gets some sort of little bonus. I went with 'Private' so I got to start with: "Basic Firearms training, a pistol and ammo". You start out with 50 action points which will get used quickly. With my first 50 action points I quickly found a zombie (-2 action points finding it) and started shooting like crazy (-48 for shooting and some punching). "You attack the zombie and miss." That's pretty much all I saw. I think I earned maybe 10 experience points and maybe caused 8 points of damage. So I logged out for the day to give it another go on the next. Opps. Upon logging back on I see a quick replay of what happened well I was gone. It seems your supposed to end your turn inside a building so the zombies can't get you. I was quickly killed by someone lost my 10 whole experience and started life (death?) as a fresh zombie. Ok. Well, that can't be that bad except I haven't been able to get back over 5 experience without being killed... or brought back to life... and then killed again. Maybe I'll re-read the FAQ again, maybe I'm missing some fine detail somewhere. Actually, maybe I'll start working on my version again if I get a few minutes (yeah right). If your at work and bored I suggest you check it out anyway. Who knows you might have fun.
