Project Zomboid is a open world survival horror video game, currently under development by independent developer The Indie Stone. The game is set in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse, where players must survive for as long as possible, scavenging for items such as weapons, food, and medicine. Soon after its initial release as a paid pre-alpha tech demo, the game was leaked, and spread illegally to many other websites.The pirated copies enabled auto-updating from the Project Zomboid's servers, and unable to bear the costs, The Indie Stone took the customer-only paid version offline, and instead, released a free "public tech-demo" for download. On October 15, 2011, one of The Indie Stone developer's home was broken into and two laptops, containing a considerable amount of work on the project, were stolen. Further work on Project Zomboid has been delayed.

I love the gamer feedback of "good ending" being "no" because your only ending is you dying. :P It's just your journey that counts and in what manner you ended up going. Why I love you PZ.

I highly doubt it, sorry. :( The requirements above have changed dramatically since its release in 2011 and there's been a big overhaul which still lags on some high end systems and mid range (like mine). There's a demo on Steam you can try but I doubt it might run smoothly, worth a shot though. :)

Sorry, I feel so bad since it's such a great game. We can't update the requirements yet because we don't really have "official" ones from the devs, but I'll check Steam and see if we can change them to a little higher than they are here.

According to the predicted requirement, you are able to run it. this game seems not need a such powerful GPU to run it smoth

There's a demo on Steam, you can try it to see how it runs. :) But you might lose a lot of FPS in towns and such with lots of zombies. Even I do lag sometimes. :/


I don't think I'd take anything from these requirements, I think they're from the old version of the game in 2011.

No problem, game's in alpha so I'm sure they'll give some needed requirements when it gets most major features (NPC's, cars etc...) in the game. They're still optimizing it though. After looking up at these requirements though, they're extremely incorrect. :P Steam has some but they're not really accurate either. More of an ask on the forums or try the demo situation.

Once they release Multiplayer for this in the next few weeks it's going to massively come in to its own. I can't wait.

There's a new build as well, framerate is drastically improved running 60FPS now. :D I'm more in line for the NPC's although from what I see with the multiplayer it looks quite fun, but I'll never ever ignore completely unscripted dynamic AI.

To let anyone know whether you can run it, if you have a powerful rig, you'll still see bad FPS but there's an incoming update which fixes numerous bugs and optimizes for higher end rigs (hopefully). It's a really good game, there's no NPCs yet but read up about how interesting and fun the AI's will be, for example the meta-game and the sadisic AI director. It's coming closer every week. :D

I can't play the demo for this, If I don't run in compatability mode then I get just a black screen and when I do I get lag spikes that go down to like 5FPS making the game unplayable, the lag spikes occur every 2 seconds and I've tried different bat files, disabled steam overlay but nothing seems to work :-/

I partially fixed the problem, thankfully they replied and tried to help this time. Since I was able to play it and get to know the game again, I will highly recommend it. Couple of things, it's still in Alpha. AMD cards will get errors and won't utilize the shaders. (AFAIK) You might get low FPS. I have no clue how to fully fix low FPS, but if you do have it on a rig like mine or higher, then let me know and I'll try to help with the suggestions I received. :)

I find it hard to support TIS when I constantly report the lag and video memory usage and they take no notice. Hopefully the next build will fix that.
