The Infection

Post  Simas on Sat Sep 11, 2010 12:53 pm

I am liking this infection idea that you will turn into a zombie in 4 days if you get bit by one. However, if that is true, then the player would just turn off the console and restart from a previous save. You should be able to find some prototype cure that would make you last more days before the disease killed you. Those however, would be incredibly rare and could only be found in the Universities part of the city (see my "Sections of the city" thread). Also, as these medicines are experimental, they have side effects (more hunger, fever, paralysis, raise insanity level (see "Fear Meter" thread, etc...).

Post your ideas on the disease!

I'm on fire today, 3 threads already!!!

Erm. Actually, as of now it's a MP only game (we may add in a campaign later if we can get a good enough story cooked up) so there are no save points. This will change if we do add a campaign though.

And it doesn't take four days to get infected. In game, it games three hours from the time you're bitten to your time of death. You're actions and control over your character diminishes in this time. After being dead for an hour, you reanimate as a zombie.

And there isn't a cure for Solanum. Once it gets inside the body, even in the smallest amount, you're life is over and there's nothing you can do about it.

A campaign would be really fun come to think of it. It could be like Fallout

I mean, I LOVE the MP idea, but a campaign is ALWAYS nice!

Well that's basically L4D right there. You don't really need to answer those questions. There are zombies and that's about it haha

Well, I love a good backstory in a game. I think we should do something like how L4D told the story with the characters. Have them just converse when they're not fighting for their lives.
