The Black Death survival sandbox seeks testers, posts fresh trailer

    
22

Introduced back in January, The Black Death is a survival sandbox in which players are medieval commoners struggling to make it during a nasty plague that has created “infected” (read: zombies). If you just can’t get enough of these kinds of games, then listen up because developer Green Man Loaded is hunting for testers:

There’s a fresh teaser trailer too; view it below!

Damonvile Unfortunately you’re completely right.
However, I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t have some glimmer of hope. That statement you just made doesn’t just work with survival games, but games in general. MMOs might not end up in a forever alpha/beta/earlyaccess-state, but a lot of the time their potential is left unexploited and we’re left with a subpar or mediocre title that promised the world.
So I’m fully aware that this may not lead to much, either to me or the genre as a whole. I find it to be kind of pointless to be the ever pessimist though, no need to buy into all of the hype but I try at least to give most developers the benefit of the doubt. Let them at least try make a great game, if they fail, I’m not the one who invested time and money in trying so I’ve got nothing to loose.

This one’s on my tracking list, it falls under the type of games that I like.

Jownz The overall Cinematic for black desert wasn’t “awful” the actual video and the like was in game footage primarily and a lot of frozen in time shots after a certain point. The horribleness came from them opting to use Tay Zonday for the voice over work and he just does NOT work well for that kind of thing.

ItsLorgarn That’s always the catch with these games. they come out looking like they have so much potential but years later they’re still in early access with us wondering why nothing ever seems to be happening.

Shamancard Sandbox like not an mmo so doesn’t need all the filler ” content” like mmos do. These games tend to focus around building, gathering crafting and killing each other if it’s a pvp server. They don’t really go for the whole raids, quests or loot grinds.

breetoplay Nordavind  It would appear they are either taking to publishing or developing games on top of it now.

It certainly looks good, but ugh, more zombies.

Sandbox like Archeage/Black Desert wich means themepark with few sandbox features or a pure sandbox like EvE Online?
