    Glad to see you guys come so far in such a short time frame :)

    Even happier that we've been apart of the process. Good job Undead Labs. I've said it before and I'll say it again, you'll always have a fan in me.

    Dantron, of course! :D

    Actually, first place on the list of Dantron's Favourite Things of 2013 is pie. It is always pie.

    Dantron offers gish & e5 a slice of really, really yummy 2013* pie. :)

    *Dantron notes that 2013 is the flavour of the pie; the pie itself is being made sometime in the near future.

  10. You just get your deserved ovations! Definitely my favorite game out there at the moment. Love the amount of detail and reactivity you put in it.

    Someone please tell me, what is the deal with pie? Johnny-come-lately to the forums, and I am thoroughly mystified. Also, yay UL!

    It has to do with the value of Pi. See THIS GOOGLE IMAGE LINK for further information on this mystery of the universe.

    (Congratz UL, on a job well done.)

    We who are about to die SALUTE YOU!

    In story mode - I hadn't purchased Breakdown yet:

    I had built up Marcus to be a Goliath of a fighter . I had someone new come into my camp. I decided to play as them to build up their skills. I partnered them with Marcus as a solid bad ass backup. Things got dicey in an industrial warehouse. Marcus was DESTROYING everything he touched. He was schooling the "newbie" that I was playing as.

    Then I saw a straggler (Screamer) off to the side, chased it down quickly, and eradicated the foul beast with a solid knockdown followed by a powerhouse blow to the head. I turned around to watch Marcus get absolutely swarmed out of nowhere. He was dead before I could get them all off. I was so...incredibly...angry at that wonderful I'm-gonna-auto-save-right-now-so-you-can't-get-Marcus-back that I rage quit the game and logged out of Steam (cause that'll show em!!). I stood up and started pacing. My wife completely understood. She doesn't play SoD, but she loves video games (and she is gorgeous...THEY REALLY DO EXIST).

    After about 10 minutes I decided I wanted to play SoD some more, but I couldn't bear the thought of continuing without my confident captain, Marcus. I mean, c'mon, he had calmed down so many in my camp. He lead the group to safety time and time again. He was the strength my group needed (yes, I'm overselling it...but it's fun). I couldn't just restart!

    I bought Breakdown. Been playing that instead for the last week. Cute tactic, Undead Labs! This was your plan to sell more DLC ALL ALONG! Don't hide it.

    Final thought: I really do understand why the instant save character death is important. But DAMN! Isn't there something that can make me feel like I didn't invest all that time for nothing? It's so debilitating when I lose someone so vital to the game. I share the load and get other characters on par with their skills. But there's always my superstar. And when they die it makes the game less rewarding to play pisses me off.

    However...credit is given when it's due. I've played games with serious penalties and I've stopped playing them because of said penalties. With UL's State of Decay, I endure. I press on. With full time work, wife, & everything in between...I only have so much time to play games. It is a great compliment to tell you that I continue playing State of Decay even after the rage of losing my best character.

    And yes I'm being pretty melodramatic here. It's all in good fun. Congratulations on a fantastic game. You've certainly earned some faithful followers. I may hate the permanent death "feature". It sure as hell makes the gameplay that much more intense, even if I really hate to admit it.

    Well put. Actually, I have managed to kill power before the auto save to rescue my beloved ninjas. My wife is a gamer as well. She actually pulled me back into the game world. Totally understand the shock of losing a hard-earned Hercules. Feels so unfair to see Billy Bad Ass get dragged down when the survivor armed with a
    frying pan and a talent for beer pong is
    mopping the floor with ferals. Have fun!

    It goes to the longstanding feud between members that love Pie and those--far more sane--individuals that enjoy cake more. :p Really it's all in good fun. Certain member(s) have been pushing to have a pie put into the game as a consumable item and that may have been what started this whole kerfuffle.

    OT: While I don't know of any awards giving to SoD or Undead Labs, outside of those you already posted Sanya, I do know the Escapist has on several occasions featured news stories about your game. When I've seen that they've done this, I've posted the relevant article in your latest news thread.
