    Aw, this looks kinda cute! If it comes to BF I might use a PCC on it.

    I am SO getting this -- it's just a question of when.  Black Kitty

    Not yet, but hopefully soon!  From what I've read, it's like a Halloween-ville Jack  version of The Promised Land.

    Funny Little Build Game      
    Sunny Sunny Sunny

    BASED ON DEMO

    Charming and different, this game is such an odd little one, it is hard to know where to start with it. The very premise of the game is cute. Nice little zombies just waiting to worship you as their God, and a new nirvana to create.

    Well, it is a build game, one where you get your workers to achieve your goals, trying to keep them all busy and get the resources you need. In this way it is no different than the dozens of build games out there. With this one, though, you must also keep your workers happy, which seems to mean keeping the food up. Sounds like me. *grin*

    There are lots of funny-looking zombies to meet and to help, artifacts to find, territory to explore and quests to complete. You have an assistant who tells you what others want of you and arrows indicating where your destination is. So there is plenty of hand holding in the beginning if you want it. It was almost more than I could stand, and I like help in these sort of games. Presumably that will not go on forever.

    The nice thing about this game, too, is that there are no time limits or points to achieve to stress you out. You can explore and build and develop and acquire resources at your own pace.

    The game looks good, its graphics are cartoony and funny, and the lands are imaginative. The music strikes me as perfect for this game, upbeat and a little shambolic.

    So, if you like a giggle in your game, you might do far worse than this “happy hereafter”.

    I Recommend This Game!

    I have begun demo'ing it but am disappointed & frustrated that it's sooo slow and glitchy on my (admittedly old) desktop PC. And there are options on the menu I don't understand (what are the differences between Beautiful and Fantastic?), but I guess I can set the resolution to Fast or Fastest and hope it makes a difference.

    I do *adore* Promised Land, one of my alltime faves from BF. I'd love this to be somewhat similar.

    ETA - Nope, I tried again for as long as I could. Too glitchy, and one character became permanently stuck somewhere he wasn't supposed to be (how did that happen?). The magic power didn't make sense to me and the slow glitchiness took on a kind of dreariness. I couldn't find a map to show the expansion of the area and where characters were, etc. Maybe that would appear later? Seems like there were interesting characters to be met in later play in different corners, but the playing mechanics made it unappealing for me. I'm sorry because the game had such intriguing potential. (*TBH it could very well be my old computer. On a faster computer it might not be glitchy.)

    It did, however, make me want to pull out Little Folk of Faery again! Wub

    What I'm gathering is that the gameplay is kind of like a cross between Gemini Lost and Jack of All Tribes (love BOTH of these!)

    I haven't had time to demo yet, but I'm hoping to soooon~
