Infestation: Survivor Stories morphs into Romero’s Aftermath

    
76

Seriously, folks, we couldn’t make this up even if we tried. The critically reviled Infestation: Survivor Stories, which used to be The War Z before a legal entanglement, is now changing both its name and its entire codebase. The new game will be called Aftermath, and supposedly it represents a complete reboot of Infestation as a “spiritual successor” with additional features and better gameplay.

The decision came about as the developer ended its relationship with publisher OP Productions and began anew as Free Reign East. The team is taking advantage of the situation by holding on to the best ideas from Infestation and “avoiding controversial decisions and plain stupid mistakes that were previously made.” It’s selling early access for $15, although “the most active” Infestation players will be allowed in for free.

What’s even more interesting (depending on how you view it) is that the Aftermath team has signed up legendary zombie filmmaker George A. Romero’s son Cameron to be part of the production team. Cameron currently is working on an origin film for his father’s Living Dead franchise.

J0M0 I’m not someone who normally goes around bashing the company behind a game, just because I don’t like a game (and considering I’ll buy damn near every zombie survivor game that appears on Steam, that’s saying something). I’ll say the title isn’t for me, or that I couldn’t really get into it. I rarely even say, “I didn’t like it,” because I know the devs come across comments like that, and they’re real people with real feelings. So when I say this company doesn’t deserve any sympathy for the grief they’re getting, I really mean it. This has scam written all over it.

DeadlyAccurate J0M0 Well the same lawyer thing is no evidence whatsoever. It’s silly actually. He is probably a lawyer who simply specializes and has experience in the games industry. That has no ties whatsoever to the development of a game. As far as everything else, who knows.

All I am saying is, how about we wait until people play the game and it is given a fair chance? Instead of everyone getting out pitchforks. If I was working on this game and it was indeed a fresh new endeavor with no ill intentions towards consumers, I would be really upset that people wouldn’t even try out all my hard work.

J0M0 Don’t feel sorry for the devs. Read Siphaed’s post below. There’s a good chance these “publishers” are just shell companies created by the devs.

I’m usually quite mellow and tend to hold judgment. However, the game business has its lot of shady characters. Some of those, when you take a few years to watch their patterns of actions and their expressed words, emerge as seemingly toxic for the business. As of now, there are three name that come to my mind when thinking of toxic characters that should be removed from the game-making occupation. The “evil” trio :

Sergey Titov
Mark Kern
Derek Smart

Now, I will reckon that if all of them took a leave the game news space would be less entertaining….
