They Do Not Die is a 2D Zombie shooter with abstract visuals and a focus on customization plus level editor.


Here is a long overdue update for They Do Not Die. It doesn’t do everything I was planning but has a few additions.

The level viewer has officially become WYSIWYG level editor. You can edit levels but not create them so if you want to make a new level without overwriting one of the preexisting ones you will need to go copy one of them in the “Maps” folder. I would love to see any new levels that anybody makes so post links in the comments.

There is single screen co-op play now. You can have up to four players and you all share the same health and energy bar. When playing with multiple people the camera stops repositioning itself based on where your pointing and instead places itself in the middle of all the players. There are invisible walls keeping you from getting too far away from each other.

There is also a Windows version now. Yeah, that’s right, I made a PC game then restarted making the game and then started again on Wii only to then port its incomplete Wii version back to PC. Give me a few more years and I’ll have an even more incomplete build of it available for PC that will have been designed for xbox 720. The PC version is single player only.

v0.4 – September 25, 2010
* Added Co-Op modes for up to four players.
* The level viewer has been replaced with a level editor.

Thanks to for the news.
