Announcing Zombie Killer Pizza!

February 19, 2010 at 7:21 pm by thetheorist

So I’ve hinted at a new side project for a couple of months now and am finally ready to introduce it to the world. The lady and I’s latest endeavor is Zombie Killer Pizza (!

Or ZKP as we like to call it. ZKP is a card game where players take on the role of drivers at Zombie Killer Pizza, the last pizza joint on earth. Drivers deliver pizza, booze, ammo and hope to their clientele, helping them survive the zombie apocalypse. Players will compete against each other for deliveries and against the zombie horde to successfully make those deliveries. The ultimate goal is to earn enough tip money to buy the store and retire from the road, leading a life of luxury as the owner of ZKP.

I’m writing the content for the game and Tam is working on the graphics for it. An early piece of Tam’s concept art is up on the site under The Daily Zombie.

The prototype is done and we are currently playtesting it to work out the kinks. Once we’re satisfied that it’s balanced and a blast to play, we’ll be looking into publishing it ourselves.

I’ve always wanted to try my hand at designing my own board or card game and am super excited that we’re making the jump into this and I just wanted to share it with you all. Please let me know what you think of the site, the idea or anything else!

Oh, and if you want to follow the goings on at ZKP, there is an RSS feed. For now I’m going to try and do a post a week, featuring concept art, thoughts about the design process, the history behind ZKP and some of the influences on it. As we move closer to publishing, I hope to bump up the frequency that I post.

Thanks to everyone who supports us in all the different things we try!

The Submit button may not be appearing or working correctly in IE6. I would suggest upgrading to IE7 or Firefox 2 for full functionality (I'm still looking for a solution to this if anyone knows one).

    What a concept!! Sounds like a very unique premise too. Can I be a playtester? 😀
