World Zombination infects the world this Thursday

    
21

If you’ve ever grumped that MMOs don’t feel so “massively” these days, then here’s something that might put a smile on your face before it gets eaten right off: a game where players control hordes of survivors and zombies duking it out via tower defense in a cute post-apocalyptic setting.

While it may not be an MMO in the strictest of sense, World Zombination likes to call itself that and boasts of online elements such as guilds, raids, PvP, and support for up to a thousand on-screen units. World Zombination is coming to mobile (iOS and Android) and PC platforms on Thursday, February 19th. You can watch the trailer after the break.

RingofVoid I just wish the writers had better material to work with. But I guess we get the comments to entertain ourselves with for this one.

KiwiRed Just tried it and it’s a lot like Clash of Clans and the its ilk.   Lot’s of forced waiting that you can skip for $, asynchronous offline “multiplayer”, semi-anonymous guilds to random join, P2W units to buy in the cash shop   Unless you know someone outside the game, you’re unlikely to actually communicate with someone in-game.

That being said, you get to play both sides so you can play both the tower defense and the zombie offense.  There is a good bit of strategy in both unit placement and timing.  The first 20 minutes before the paywalls really hit is some good fun.

On the note of it not being an MMO…   

I’ve always envisioned the poor Massively writer sitting there in front a blank monitor banging his head against his writer’s block.  “Bree said I need to have an article by this afternoon or I don’t get paid.  Dang it!!  I’ve checked every tweet, blog, and message board.  There is NOTHING else going on with any MMO today!!”   Then the little devil on his shoulder (who looks exactly like Diablo for some reason)  whispers in his ear: “Ya know…. ya could just pick something that’s either Multiplayer OR Online for, like, half-credit or something”   He’d make a little guilty grin and we’d get a post like this one.

But… 

This month they’re writing these pro-bono… for free…. out of the goodness of their little hearts…  And we still get to have a post like this one!

MAD PROPS!!!

Hurbster I honestly don’t get this logic? 

You just sound stupid, replace the word zombie with High Fantasy, RPG, Shooter or anything popular. We get it you don’t like that other people like the zombie motif in games, we don’t want to hear it every 2 mintues.

Indeed. Zombie games have officially jumped the zombie shark in my world.

NCsucks I’m pretty sure most game sites don’t bill themselves as “Single player Game News”. Just “Video Game News”. And MMOs are video games.
But single player games are not MMOs. MOBAs are not MMOs. Whatever this game is is not an MMO.

Ohhh noes, this is not MMO! My eyes hurt! Grow up.

Even single player games sites cover MMOs sometimes, this doesn’t have to be 120% MMO based site.

A rare article like this doesn’t hurt you.

Siphaed I approve of the new game genre ‘gold covered diamond monkey idols’!  I wonder what other games would fall under it?  Maybe we could use that as a genre for games that excessively concentrate on microtransactions.  :)

I’m confused. I played this months ago on iOS, it was advertised in the App Store. In fact according to it’s version history there, it’s been out since April 2014, and was announced on TouchArcade in May 2014. They’re apparently now saying all those were “betas”, but they weren’t calling it that back when they were marketing it on Twitter last year (and also weren’t calling it that in the App Store at the time).

Also, unless things have changed drastically since I played, it’s about as much of an MMO as Starcraft is. As the survivors, the game I played was actually a mostly single player tower defense game. I only interacted with other people in chat or if someone gifted me a unit (ala Clash of Clans). Actual play was on a small tower defense map where you fight a few waves of zombies, then go deal with standard F2P treadmill “wait to do stuff or pay us to stop waiting” mechanics.
