Zombie Nation
« on: 22 Oct 2005, 03:22 »
Hello, I learned about ags off dosgames.com over 3 years ago and have been brainstorming for my game Zombie Nation,
i have made 3 versions, the final which i started 8 months ago is finished, remember it is rough since i worked on it when i had free time or nothing else to do, i could spend entire weeks on it or 1 day a month but now it is finished, and its in the internet.

Here are some screenshots:

This forum is for posting links to completed games, why not release it now since it's done?

Zombie nation is supposed to be more of a story, it starts with you looking around and near the end you see zombies.

The start is a little slow because it is supposed to set the scene and i also made it about 7 months before the end.
It gets better.

You downloaded the wrong one!!!!!!!

You downloaded a shitty little tester at 340x240, with only 6 rooms and nothing happening,

ohh no no, the proper one is 800x600 and has about 76 rooms , the crappy one has been online for ages i've only just put the real one up.
Make sure you downloaded the one at the bottom.

I'd like to play it. I like zombies... ;D

The original thread is called Zombie Nation. Automatically when you post a reply the subject is Re: Zombie Nation. You can change that, but it always seems from the forum index that there is a new game, cause the word Re is missing. Anyway, we're waiting for the game... ;)

I haven't linked the game because I'm worried about legal issues,
my game contains music which i got free from amazon.com since they give you some unknown music groups for free,
I have given thanks to amazon in my credits but am not sure if I'm allowed to post it,
although some people downloaded it before i wanted them to.
Is it ok to use the music if my game is FREE and i have given thanks to the provider?

I could probably remove the music but it would ruin the mood ,can you help?

Check what amazon says about the tracks. If it says that they are public property or shareware or anything like that then no you don't have a problem.

The fact that it's free doesn't give you automatically the right to use the music.

But frankly I doubt anyone will bother...

If anyone cares, and if it'll clear up confusion, it's in the archive now: http://aafiles.bicycle-for-slugs.org/full/Zombie%20Nation.rar

I try to resolve the confusion because Tim Lump seems to be unable to do it himself.

On this page you can find the links to two different versions of his game Zombie Nation.
The first is the lo-res, unfinished one which he calls the original because it's the first he made. The link to the download of this one is more towards the top of the page, directly under the picture.
The other version is his second try to convert this idea into a game, also finished this time and in a higher resolution. The download link can be found on the bottom of the page.

New, finished, hi-res version: http://www.geocities.com/zombienationsite/zm.html
