Description

Jazon and the Dead is a style-rich, blood-splashed, top-down, action-adventure game that mixes brain-twisting puzzles with an engaging narrative, dark humor and a hip 80's vibe. The game's stark comic book visuals set this game apart from others in the genre.

Jazon and the Dead is heavily inspired by old horror and B-movies (Night of the Living Dead and Braindead), with visuals influenced by comic book artists such as Mike Mignola, Charlie Adlard and Frank Miller.

As the game starts, Jazon wakes up disoriented in the restroom of a bar and he doesn't remember a thing. As he leaves the bar, he finds a ruined world ruled by zombies and scumbags.

As Jazon travels across the wasteland, he must discover his past to save the future. Along the way he meets Zoey, a wasteland veteran who just wants to forget about her history. Together they visit the oracle in the mountains, who foresees a prophecy leading them on an epic odyssey to save humanity from complete annihilation.

Game Features

  • Player-driven story where you must weigh the consequences of your choices. The story is divided into acts, each with bridging cinematic scenes that focus on different aspects of human nature.
  • Fight your way through hordes of zombies with a heavy gun or bloody fist. Ammunition is scarce so you need to make every shot count! Dash and push zombies out of your way to survive through close combat.
  • Explore a world inspired by 80's sci-fi B-movies with chunky old technology and lots of blood and gore. Your journey takes you through deserts, abandoned towns, underground caves, surviving cities and military facilities.
  • Puzzle your way out of tense situations before the slow, brain devouring creatures reach you. Work cleverly with corpses in the world -- as weights or to stand on to reach your destination.
  • Groovy 80's inspired soundtrack. Nothing less will do it.

Awesome! Thanks for the pledge :)

The prealpha was very fun although I had definitely hoped to see even just a little bit more of the game from it. Either way I am very excited for this game!

I mean that I'm interested on playing it on a mac.

Would be cool, but let's see. The final game is coming to mac, but we are not sure about this pre-alpha.

Hello, I could talk a lot what I liked about this preview but I assume you get that a lot since your product is amazing. However, flaws are more important to game developers, right? In my humble opinion, most of the preview was flawless, but these are the things that drew my attention:

1. No sounds in main menu. (not even a flaw since it is pre-alpha)

2. Optimization. I made some stuff on Unity too and the FPS was not great too, so I guess it is the Unity engine itself. But again, it is not a flaw because even a low-tier can run it without a problem. The only thing I am mentioning it is because I am currently using a laptop (not the worst one tho) and I am getting ~20-30 fps when there is a lot going on, yet some top-tier games like Overwatch runs 60+ fps. Yet again, this is not even a flaw just worth mentioning.

3. When I was shooting the pistol the raycast from the gun was way off the zombie (the cursor was right on him) but the bullets still hit them. Thought that it is worth mentioning too.

Some of my thoughts may not even make sense and I am sorry for that, but feedback is feedback, right?

I really hope seeing this game released ASAP. Thanks for creating it!

Thank you for your feedback. It's great. I will just comment quickly on the points.

1. Yeah, we neglected that since we are on a very low budget.

2. This could be a lot better, we didn't spend that much time on optimization and a big one is the AI system we use for the zombies. It's something we want to look into :)

3. We did the game from a controllers perspective, and when you aim with a controller it feels right. However we discovered this bug when we created the mouse and keyboard controls but we didn't have time to fix it.

Thank you for the comment. If you havn't seen it we are running a crowdfunding campaign, and we really need all the support we can get. So if you are interested in the game we will have a lot of cool updates if you pledge: www.fig.co/jazon

Cheers

I couldn't shoot. Got the gun, aimed with the right stick, pressed Right Trigger, nothing happens.

Sorry to hear that. What OS and type of controller did you use? :)

XBox 360 controller with windows 10

As weird as it sounds, it was related to the fact that I had two controllers connected and it worked aiming with one and shooting with the other.

This is a really cool and unique top down shooter. The comic art style is cool, the sound design and voice acting is funny, and the story is a nice take on the zombie apocalypse. I love the 80's themed comic art style this game has. Almost like a mix between the graphics of Borderlands and a strange anime style with the long bodies and odd shapes. I don't exactly know where the demo picks up in the story but I rather enjoyed the little bit your presented with. For only a Pre-Alpha this was well done and played good and I can't wait to see how the story and world develop. I did a video on my experience with the demo if anyone is interested.

Yes it is indeed a good game, if anyone is curious to see gameplay of what it could be like I will attach the video here, I can only imagine what the story will be like but I love a good story built into a game.
