    Undead Sanya Here To Help

    I'll be posting the news article in a couple hours (and update this post with the link:, but I figured we might as well start the fun now :)

    News went out yesterday that Microsoft loves the State of Decay IP so much that they think the world could be more than a game - it could also be a live-action TV show or even a movie.

    We don't have anything to do with producing shows, of course, even though we're partners in anything with the State of Decay name on it. We're just working on the game part of things. But if you needed proof there was more going on than just this kickass expansion...

    So, just for funsies, let's play "Cast the State of Decay Show."

    I want Nathan Fillion. Somewhere. Anywhere. He's the quintessential leading man, but I think he'd be great playing against type as Ed.

    Jeff wants Chiwetel Ejiofor for Marcus and Walton Goggins for Ed.

    Geoffrey says Walton is way too smart and ought to be a Wilkerson, and Alan Tudyk should play Ed. He also wants Sarah Shahi for Maya.

    I'm kinda thinking Kerry Washington for Maya, though.

    We're all kinda stuck on Lily.

    Feel free to bring in casting choices for all of the characters, including the ones we're going to meet in Lifeline! It's all canon!

    Allison Pill as Lily. :)

    Also, I love Sarah Shahi as Maya. But for Marcus, I'd go with Cress William. Simply because of the Powerhouse trait. He's huge. :)

    Gary Dourdan for the role of Marcus Campbell (well, before he became a crackhead)

    Will Patton for the role of Thomas Ritter or Sheriff Carl Parsons

    Rob Ford as the Juggernaut (he'll be out of a job soon anyway, right? riiiiight??)

    Jocelyn Wildenstein should be the bloater.

    Miley Cyrus can play the part of that skinned, disemboweled dog carcass you see in the backyard in Marshall.

  7. Is Sanya, or any other dev allowed to say if this is the final piece of DLC for the game?

    I would absolutely love for more content to come out for SoD. I love that it's SP, and while the idea of a zombie game with other people sounds cool, it'll always be ruined by people who just want to shoot things. That's why I'm not too hyped about UL's multiplayer only future. Just hope we can continue to get some content for SoD after this expansion is all! Would love to continue supporting Undead Labs.

    Holy crap that's freakin sweet!!!! Casting call.

    @IrishDead you and I have the same idea with Michelle Rodriguez playing Maya.

    Sgt. Tan- Stephen Lang.
    Thomas Ritter- Christopher Lee.

    I'll update it when I think of more. :)

    We tend to want to get one DLC out the door before we start thinking about what to do next ;) Give us a bit!

    Ryan Gosling, Justin Long and Nathan Fillion for Ed hmm.. There must be hidden potential in this role.

    But jeez, Marion Cotillard as Lily?
