ApocZ is an open world sandbox First Person and Third Person view shooter, centered around the zombie apocalypse and survival. Set in 4 square miles of land in the Ukraine on the Black Sea, and bordered by deadly radiation zones. As a survivor you awaken shortly after the apocalyptic event surrounded by zombie infested towns and villages. Your first goal, find food and water to stay alive!

This area also has military facilities where a survivor can find high grade rifles and ammunition. These weapons will aid in eliminating the zombie infestation and confrontations with other survivors. The always online state of this world makes for intense and desperate game play in up to 16 player PvP and PvE.

You’ll find many things to help in your survival, from backpacks to carry supplies, to tents that can be used to mass and save loot from one excursion into this world to the next. There are also vehicles that can be repaired and fueled to aid in scavenging. The 2000 zombies only spawn once when a server is created, making it possible to clear areas and scavenge free of their threat.

If you have downloaded the patch be careful while joining online sessions, many host may not have updated and this could cause unpredictable behavior. If you have any suggestions or need support please visit our forum here.

ApocZ Online Session Issue

ApocZ ‘Xbox Live’ Code 4 after the full game is purchased.
We have found the issue. Thankfully this is not a design flaw and can be easily fixed.

Work around so you can play online
Select ‘Xbox Live’ and then repeatedly press ‘A’, this will get you into your own online session. Once spawned into the world you can open the menu and ‘Invite Friends’ to join your game, this will get them online in your session, bypassing the code that causes the crash. Or you can join a friend already online through the Xbox dashboard.

We have a fix on the way!
We are testing the fix right now but can not submit the new build for release until Monday 3-31-2014 per Microsoft Indie development rules. Once submitted the new build will go through the peer-review process and be released in a minimum of 2 days after submission. So at earliest Wednesday 4-2-2014 we will all be able to join any server that is online!

Please visit the forums for other support issues and general discussions.

Thank you, Kevin Kelley.

 

Release Delayed

ApocZ was failed out of peer-review due to the ratings setting. This means I will have to wait 7 days to resubmit the game for the process with the ratings adjusted. This is the first time this has happened to a game I have submitted for release, so it caught me off guard. I will use the time to continue to test and polish game mechanics.  Please visit the forum, I posted some facts about peer-review and will answer any question you may have.

I thank all of you who been following and are excited for the release.

P.S. 7 More Days!
