Hi all. I'm considering starting development on a open-world Zombie survival game. There are alot of ups and downs to these games and not very many co-op/mmo games out there.
When I vision a game like this, I see 5-15 players on a 500x500 map, with hordes of zombies roaming around. I don't like a total guns blazing scenario and prefer the use of strategy, and of course running the hell away, with the option to smash in a zombie or two while doing so. Alot of sneaking and hiding in the shadows. I also like having player-errors in the game(car alarms, turning on the lights at night and giving the zombies a target, etc.)
I also would like to have a tunneling feature, where players can tunnel to other buildings which would take a lot of time and effort. This could also allow other groups to become 'neighbors' of each other and connect other 500x500 maps, which will, in turn, start creating a new world.
So I was wondering, from a zombie survival fan's perspective, What would you want in a survival game like this? Things that will allow players to work as a team, etc.
