PREPARE FOR MAXIMUM CHEESE

Because single is too little



Game Overview
There's lots of zombie games on the market. Loads of 'em in fact. But maybe you were looking for a zombie game with a little bit of everything. Double Death is a community driven single and multiplayer game in which you can customize your character with tons of accessories and take part in the zombie apocalypse. But what sets the game apart from other games? Well, mainly the fact that the game has a huge ass modding API which can be easily used to make custom gamemodes and maps.Unlock & Equip perks to mix up how you fight, as you'll come across some crazy mod synergies. Team up with friends or play alone as you fight the horde or take part in creating the apocalypse, making as many maps and game modes as you want.

Default Gamemodes
Classic
Drawing inspiration from games like Killing Floor and L4D, this is a mode about surviving a set number of waves with friends or by yourself. Visit the trader in between waves to upgrade weapons. By default all special zombies, all perks, and all power ups are enabled in this mode.
Endless
Similar to Classic, but instead of surviving a set number of waves, the horde will never stop coming. Ever. By default all special zombies, all perks, and all power ups are enabled in this mode.
Infection
Arena style mode where players can actually play as the zombies as well as the survivors, and try to kill each other. Multiplayer only.
Arcade
In a sense, it's basically story mode. It's a handpicked rotation of the default maps with extra content added in, such as NPC's and objectives.

Default Maps
East Side
What's left of a large city overrun by the horde. Straightforward layout without many obstacles. Nothing too special here, but maybe some buildings hide some cool stuff.
Downtown
Same city as East Side, but in the heart of the horde. This map extends underground as well, allowing you to roam the streets or explore the sewers below. Features a few secrets in the sprawling sewers.
Sunken
It's the Titanic a ship about to meet its doom, swaying back forth while hordes of zombies flood the decks. Features areas above and below decks, as well as a couple of easter eggs and dynamic events, one of which leads to an insane boss battle.
Grindhouse
An old, abandoned warehouse filled with tons of places to hide and take refuge. Pretty straightforward besides that, with nothing too special. It's exactly what the name says it is.
Nuclear
An abandoned nuclear plant. Multi-level map with one large easter egg with a very insane "reward". Also contains a few secrets.
NightFall
A large jungle filled with zombies, among other things.
Refuge
A very limited map consisting of a makeshift refuge on the top of a hill. Zombies come from both sides and try to break in. Sort of a KOTH style map.
Ruined
The largest included default map. Consists of a massive, sprawling city in complete ruin. Tons of secrets and easter eggs are included here, as well as a few things not seen in any other map.

Custom Content
Custom content can be made for the following:
-Guns/Gun Mods
-Zombies
-Maps
-Gamemodes

Character Art
The default characters, without any equipped skins or items. (Walking Animation)


The Zombies
Two styles of the common zombie.


The Special Zombies







Some More Screenshots and Such
Some Weapon Mods Being Tested

Misc

Style and Stuff
Double Death has visuals which resemble old beat'em ups, and plays exactly how you would expect a side scrolling beat'em up game would play, except with loads o zombies and tons of weapons. The game can be played in multiplayer, single player, or co-op.

Could be neat. What game would you compare the basic gameplay to? Is it a beat 'em up? Shooter? Both?

I'd say it's a really a sidescrolling shooter with visuals that resemble a beat'em up, if that makes any sense.

If I had to compare it to another game, I'd call it a 2D version of killing floor but with a lot more on screen chaos and more customization.

That is looking sweet. I can imagine the gameplay, if I am correct the aim is somewhere double dragon with guns? Could work nicely.
Good luck!  Gentleman

2D killing floor? Sold. How sparse do you envision ammo to be?

For the most part it depends on the gun, but there's random ammo drops just like in Killing Floor.

I'm a little bit tired of zombie games, but I must admit that the look of the screenshot catched my attention. And after reading that is going to be a "double-dragon-style" game, with guns, and so one.. I decided that I want to play it Smiley  . So, this is my post to follow the devlog.

Well the UI is supposed to resemble that of a PDA, so I guess I accomplished that.
