What is the plot? What's the setting? What's the arsenal like? Are there multiple variations of zombies? Will it include multiplayer?

A good set of questions!

Battle with Zombies is a Singleplayer-TopDown Shooter survival. You need to survive as many waves as possible. You can kill the zombies with multiple weapons, you can max out a small skill tree and you can buy sentry guns.

Many things are planned. Take a look at my 'Battle with Zombies 7 LBP Vita' thread. There you can see what's possible and what I am going to add in the future.

It's a minigame. If you are interested into story driven levels you should check out Too Late - chapter 1 or Cursed Trains Intro.

The two weeks are over! Now I will reveal some information. For people who don't know Battle with Zombies (also known as BWZ) I will give a short explanation:

Battle with Zombies is a topdown survival shooter. You have to kill zombies and collect experience points (EP). Your goal is to have a high amount of EP for the score board. To make it fun there is a ingame shop with much content and a wave system to make the zombies stronger so it gets more challenging. I think you will have fun for at least 15 minutes.

After making Battle with Zombies 7 for LBP Vita I decided to make a third part for LBP3 (There are 7 BWZ levels in LBP Vita and 2 in LBP3). My goal is to add all the cool features of BWZ7. Because of all the changes I made to Battle with Zombies it's impossible to update BWZ2 so a third part is necessary. And now here are a few pictures!
---
After 4 years I decided to completely change the HUD design. No black bars anymore, just the HP bar, endurance bar, aimhelp and of course the current gun and magazine
http://fs5.directupload.net/images/user/171120/g6llwcgb.png

The new menu/shop design is very simple. I removed the 'multiple camera angles' logic and used LBP's In/Out movers and only one camera to create the new menu style.

To be honest I ran into a few problems related to the In/Out movers, but I was able to fix those problems. So, what do you think?

Update
It's been a while since I've posted here. That doesn't mean that the development was paused.

I fixed some bugs, created a new menu and I'm planning on adding a 'challenges' tab to the shop.
Here are some pictures of the new menu:

The challenges are going to provide extra points for the highscore hunters. The challenges could look like this:
'Kill 50 zombies with the M1911'
'Survive 5 minutes'
'Buy 20 sentry guns'
The challenges will have 3 steps. That could like this:
'Kill 50 zombies with the M1911 - Kill 100 zombies with the M1911 - Kill 200 zombies with the M1911'
'Survive 5 minutes - Survive 10 minutes - Survive 20 minutes'
'Buy 10 sentry guns - Buy 20 sentry guns - Buy 30 sentry guns'

When completed, each step of a challenge will reward the player with 1000 points.

I think this is going to be amazing. People will have more fun playing this game. I think I am going to need 2 weeks to add this feature. I hope you'll like it.

I continued to work on this project!

I still need to work on the challenges and the new shop design. The challenges are something new for me and it takes a lot of time to add them to BWZ3. But in return the challenges are a big element and Highscore hunters will have more fun doing their business.

I will share pictures, if I make more progress. Stay tuned!

I continued working on this project!

I wasn't satisfied with the HUD design, because it didn't look like Battle with Zombies. I worked on a classic HUD design. Here it is:
http://fs1.directupload.net/images/user/180223/oz58hd94.png

I want to change a few other things as well. The spawners will be invisible and there will be more spawners on the map. I want to have that 'Zombies are everywhere' feeling. Of course the spawn limit will be set to 10 zombies at once.

I still have to test a few things here and there, but I'm becoming more and more satisfied with this. Give me a few more weeks and this project could be... finished. Though don't take this as a release date.

UPDATE
Quick update folks!

Battle with Zombies 3 is nearly finished. I still have to tweak the sentry gun to solve the conflict between the guns and the sentry guns. It should be really easy though. Some smaller things also need to be done. But after that, Battle with Zombies 3 is ready for the community.

I will definitely let you folks know, when BWZ3 launches. Maybe it's this weekend!

It's already published. I will add new content to the shop soon.

EDIT

NEWS
http://fs1.directupload.net/images/user/180225/bfr45xri.png

Change log:
- Bugfixes
- Score board instead of the progress board
- A new option called *'PS3 optimization'
- 2 new challenges related to the wave system and the level system

*The CPU of the PS3 can't spawn the zombies without a fps drop. This setting limits the spawners to 6 zombies on the whole map instead of 12. Theoretically that shortens the fps drop. THEORETICALLY. I don't know if it will work, but I wanted to try it anyway.

Well, I think this update will make things better. There is also a bug where grenades won't spawn. I tried to fix it. Maybe it's fixed now. I am not sure though. Okay I hope you folks have fun playing the game!
