I’m alive!…

Hey guys,

Many of you are wondering when the next update will be. The reason for the lack of updates is because I’ve been swamped with work and haven’t had a chance to dive back into Zombox. Because Zombox is just a hobby project and my real job takes priority, that can happen sometimes.

So that’s why there haven’t been any updates lately, and there probably won’t be another one for a little while. But don’t worry…I have big things in store for the future!

In the meantime, check out this awesome Zombox figure my brother made out of wood! My brother also makes all kinds of crazy stop-motion animations, and you can see his stuff on his website www.terryibele.com.

That’s all for now! Thanks for your continued support!

    That’s an awesome figurine!

    Aw man! sucks to wait for such a master piece.

    Hopefully you gain a Star developer status when this comes out and you can make games for a living!

    Make sure to have a HEAVY anti-piracy thingy for this game so you can sell many downloads!

  6. K0S says:

    Your brother should work for Aardman!

  7. Kristopher Peterson says:

    Have you thought about trying a Kickstarter to fund the project so you could quit your day job if successful?

  8. Tec says:

    Release in 2012! Its too awesome:)

  9. Nathan says:

    wow ur brother must be a elite craftman!

  10. Nathan says:

    The next update should be a survival mode where like you have to defend a base of survivors. You could place turrets on the base, based on how much money or heads you have. you could also add more survivors to your base if you find them when they randomely spawn in the city. Plus you could upgrade your base or something. I got this idea from the game Bug Heroes where you defend your food stash from bugs, its really fun and its for free! But i dunno cause when your game gets really famous, foursaken media might sue you if you agree to my idea.

    @ Nathan:

    This is the first time I’m 100% confident that the developer will make a FLAWLESS game, In that spirit, I really think your idea sucks the big one, plus, It’s not even your idea, it’s stolen.

  12. Nathan says:

    @ Miguel:
    Heh heh (troll face)

  13. Nathan's minion says:

    Ummmmmm D:

  14. Nathan says:

    Oopsey daisies

  15. Nathan says:

    (blushes)

  16. Nathan says:

    So on a different subject, why can you open the zombox figure? Is it like a container or something, but who cares cause it looks beautiful :D

  17. Nathan's minion says:

    On behalf of my masters opinion of the next update(which was not a good idea) I think the next update is where there can be like second or third story building like for instance if there is like a bunch of pieces missing from the tall building, then it will collapse similar to the engine to angry birds were when some pieces of the pigs bases collapse due to some damage caused by the birds. There could be an elevator or staircase on that specific building. Plus if any of you watched transformers dark of the moon where that huge metal centipede made a tall building collapse epicaly? Imagine if something like that could happen!

  18. Nathan says:

    People i am sorry of my comment of the next update and I promise you that whatever I think of, I promise I will consult with my minion before posting it for that I am truly sorry. (blows kiss). Plus I believe the two or three story building would be a great idea!

  19. Miguel says:

    @ Nathan:

    Dear lord someone’s touchy and has a lot of free time.

    Relax kid, it’s the internet, you don’t have to cry every time someone criticizes you.

  20. Nathan says:

    @ Miguel:
    Ok :D

  21. Nathan says:

    @ Nathan’s minion:
    My minion i do not think the “2 story building would not be a great idea, it might cost alot of lagging, instead the next update should be to the Vehicles. You should be aloud to store items in the trunk of a car or a bus. Also the next update should be where you can listen to music if your vehicle has a radio station, but listining to music cost energy which you have to refill with batterys or somthing, plus in addition to the music station, you should also find or craft music discs with special abilities (you put the disc in the radio), there could be healing discs which heals you 2 hp every 2 sec,Xp dics which give you 5 xp every 2 sec and ect. (i posted an idea simular to this in the item weight comments)

  37. Nathan's minion says:

    @ SpiderSlayer:How? /:(

  38. Tec says:

    Whats up with these weird conversations on here. Its a game not a chat room hahha. Keep up the good work tyson. Hope to see the game soon:)

  39. Nathan says:

    Tyson if you are reading this I have 1 question, What made you think of making zombox? I mean what gave you the idea of a zombie game in a blocky world? like did you know minecraft and decided to make something simular exept more to the zombieness? or did you think of something rated M like but with a more 4+ effect to it (meaning of the bloody zombies and the blocky character and environment?

  40. Nathan says:

    Oh and by the way in this page I notce a HUGE BUG! When people post comments the date says they posted it a day later, for example I posted a comment on november 6th but it says i posted it on November 7th. D:

  41. rene says:

    tyson please i have nothing against this dudes opinons^ but seriously i keep coming to your site thinking you have something to say thannnnnn dissapointment :(

  42. Terry says:

    Thanks for the post/plug, brother!

  43. Jack says:

    Great to here Zombox is still going strong!

    And uh, Nathan… don’t take this the wrong way, but it seems to me you’re spamming the comments section with continued “fake” commenters. I’d rather not loose the ability to comment without creating an entire account, and it’s a tad bit immature, so could you lay off a little? :)

  44. Fadi98n says:

    @ Jack:
    sorry nathan but i have to agree with jack.

  45. Nathan says:

    @ Jack:
    Okay maybe if I lay off for a few months…or years people would forget who I am and would not pretend to be me cuas I got 2 people who’s pretending to be my mom and me and seriosly I just figured out that my cousin Minu is my minion O__O

  46. Nathan's minion says:

    @ Nathan:
    Ummm no im not your cousin Nathan, when i was texting you my fingers slipped and i texted “im Minu” when what i was really going to text was “Im Manly”

  47. Nathan says:

    ALright so I guess this is good bye to you all so you wont hear from me for awhile, you could talk to my minion if you miss me or somthing but thats all Good Bye! oh and by the way (Puts on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s voice) “I will be back” :p

  48. Miguel says:

    Hello, I just have one seriously question that came up to me recently cause a lot of big games that are coming out are just plain not compatibles for the iPod touch 4, Now, is Zombox going to be compatible for the iPT4? Please say yes Tyson.

    Although this might be the only game that I would consider upgrading my device for.

    Thanks in advance.

    • Tyson Ibele says:

      I think it should work on the IPT4….it works on an iPhone 4 and I’m pretty sure the IPT4 is the hardware equivalent, minus the phone part.

      I don’t have an IPT4 to test it on though…

  49. Bparker says:

    @Tyson not sure if you saw this on the other page here it is again. Have you thought of possible being able to forge your own materials? Basically you would sometimes randomly find an iron bar or maybe even a crowbar. You would go to a forge and melt it down to make more iron bars after that you would then find an anvil and have to craft your new weapon. You could also have the ability to customize it such as adding spikes for more damage or a hand guard for more defense.

    • Phredd says:

      @Bparker it’s a zombie game not Skyrim, what guy living in the city would know how to forge?

      • Anonymous says:

        It’s just an idea no need to immediately shoot it down besides it wouldn’t be intricate stuff like swords and what not it would be more like spikes which would strap on your shield.

    • Tyson Ibele says:

      I haven’t thought of that yet, no.

      Maybe in the future it would be cool if you could find some survivors in the sewers who’ve made a little smelting area. You bring them raw metals and pay them a fee, and they craft you swords, crowbars, etc.
