OK, so there was this biological warfare experiment that went wrong. The head science guy running the experiment was called Zed. Before you know it, there’s thousands of brain-dead infected people swarming everywhere trying to eat people. We call these zombies “Zed’s Dead”.
Zed’s Dead is a multiplayer isometric LAN shooter. The focus is on quick, fun competitive multiplayer play: pick your teams, pick your map, set the game parameters, and go!
Current game modes:
– Survival: teams earn 1 point per second that they have at least one character alive
– King of the Hill: teams earn points for standing close to the Flag.
One person needs to start up the game as Server, and pick a map.
Other people run the game as Client.
Controls: WASD or Arrow Keys to move; point and click with the mouse to fire.
Anyone who doesn’t have a computer can use their Android or iPhone (using Chrome or Firefox) and will get to play using twin joysticks (left joystick to move, right joystick to fire). Just point the phone’s browser to the URL displayed on the game server’s team-picking screen. Phone users can look at any of the computer screens to see the actual game world while playing.
The game runs using your LAN – so you all have to be connected to the same network.

As you’ll see, there’s also a map-making component. To make your maps usable, they must have 2 player spawn points (one for each team), 1 or more zombie spawn points, and 1 Flag which is used in the king-of-the-hill play mode.
