Zed or Alive Kickstarter: March 15-April 13!!
We at Rust Devil Games are proud to announce that our Kickstarter campaign is ready to go and will be launching on March 15th! We'll be going for 30 days until April 13th, which should allow us to get funded and send everything to the printers in order to get physical copies shipping in May 2014. Followers of the site and blog already know plenty of background on the game, but for those that haven't, please see below for general project information!
Zed or Alive is a campaign-based miniatures skirmish game using the award-winning Savage Worlds: Showdown! system set in the years following the zombie apocalypse. You control one of several human group types such as Survivors, Tribals, or Military and battle each other and the ever-present zombie menace to gain weapons, supplies, and dominance!
Alternately, you may choose to play as a Virus Strain, gaining evolutionary material with every battle and evolving to become increasingly lethal!
The goal for our project is to provide players with a fast, furious, and fun miniatures game that allows them to use any zombie or survivor figures to play out campaigns just like your favorite zombie movies and shows!
