my name is Michael Odetola and I'am the lead developer of CODE Z. a free to play 3d mmorpg which puts players in the heart of a zombie apocalyse.
CODE Z is a unique, immersive game that features
- Dynamic missions based upon the situation of the area. players will not be kiling ten rats (rinse, repeat) anytime soon
- a Unique crafting system that focuses on the quality of items rather than the quantity
- A robust and huge world to EXPLORE & INTERACT
- Emergent narrative ,where missions are influenced by YOU
CODE Z is a mmorpg shooter. The player's aim is to survive another day in a zombie infested city. You will have to craft,hunt,gather and kill in order to survive. Players can craft many items from spare parts to get around the world ( cars,vehicles,medicine). players can choose from three crafting professions. they can choose mechanical (vehicles), weaponary or medicine. You will be able to access all the professions in the beginning and then you will have to specialise in one profession as you advance
NOT ALL ZOMBIES ARE THE SAME. there are different types. You will level up from 1-30, each zone consists of stronger and more powerful zombies. You level up by completing mission for Npc groups and side quest . The missions are completely dynamic and change depending on the zone. Some missions may require kill a number of zombies if there is a high amount around the area,some may require you to build fences around your base.
The art style is a semi realistic, cell shaded game similar to borderlands. We are not trying to be like day-z or war-z in terms of our graphics or our gameplay. we are taking a light hearted approach to the the style and gameplay but still making it deep and intruiguing enough for you to sink many hours into.
I'am currently working with other game developers to make this happen. $5,500 is needed for the demo , this includes the programming,modelling and animating. I'am using freelancers around the world to make this vision come true. we need a working demo and then we can move from there.
I'am determained about the creation of this game. I realise that there is long way ahead.We need to get a working demo and then we will be able to create a full game. its very difficult at the start but i believe things will get better
CHECK OUT THE SKETCHES THAT RESPRESENT OUR IDEA
There are FIVE different perks you are entitled to if you donate.
$5-YOU will get mentioned in our credits
$10- You will have early access to the game before anyone else

WHAT IF YOU DONT GET THE AMOUNT REQUIRED?
we will continue. Any amount would be benificial to our game development. Developing the game will obviously take longer than intended but hopefully we wiill get there.
IS THIS GAME DIFFERENT FROM WAR-Z OR dayz?
Yes.Warz and Dayz are realistic survival only game (no missions or raids etc) our game has emergent missions which means your mission ar based upon your actions. Code z isnt a survival only game nor is it based on realism. we have a light hearted approach to the zombie genre, our insipration are firefall,borderland and team fortress. We give the player many ways to play the game. You can survive and hunt, complete missions, craft and sell etc. The options are there.
WILL YOU PROVIDE US UPDATES?
I will be posting updates through my indiegogo campaign, alternatively you can check my twitter page(( https://twitter.com/michaelodetola)) for any updates.
THIS PROJECT IS HIGHLY ABiTIOUS , ARE YOU CAPABLE OF DELIVERING?
I have been designing this project for over three years, many people have contributed to the making of this game. I'am not promising a large scale game that is competing with world or warcraft. we simply dont have the budget for that. we are aiming to create a quality game, which we can later build upon.
WHERE IS THE GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE?
CODE:Z is in the beginning stages. we only have sketches and drawings . we dont have a demo we can showcase to you. i hope that doesnt deter from contributing, it is very expensive to get a fully working demo, as of now i can only describe the gameplay elements and hope that will convince you to contribute.
HOW LONG WILL THE GAME TAKE TO DEVELOP?
Once the campaign is fully funded, We can start creating the 3d models, texture, rigging etc. the game development cycle should take two months. we should finish by early march. we are creating a website so ,so stay tuned for updates from my twitter feed and the indiegogo campaign.
You will be making a huge differenece to many people,not just me but the gaming community. the world is begging for more dynamic games but funding is top heavy with the major game publishing companies supporting only established game development teams. Ideas are limited and often recycled.
Not everybody can contribute financially but that doesn't mean you cant help. spread the word to as many people as you can, post the link through your twitter, facebook or any other social networking site.
every dollar, bring us one step closer to making this game a reality, Thank you.
