Today I came a cross a little something called The Zombie Game Experiment, a game development project that's looking for people to actively take part in the games creative details, if they are kind enough to make a donation that is.
The game it's self is still in the early stages of pre-production, but hopes to kick off once it reaches it's wishful budget of $15k, which it hopes to gain through donations.
To get in on the action, you are required to donate a minimum of ten dollars towards development, which gets you into the design forums, where you can post your ideas for the game. You will also receive the game for free when it is completed. The forums are made up of discussion panels and voting polls, as well as chat sessions with the development team, which will all add up to shaping the game.
Through the forums you also get to work along side a few game industry pros such as Andrew Lackey who was the sound designer for Dead Space and Jonathan Coulton, the guy behind Portal’s “Still Alive” who'll be doing an original song for the project. World of Warcraft and Star Craft novelist Aaron Rosenberg is also linked to the project and is said to be plotting out the story.
Aside from the game project, a quarter of all donations and game revenue will be donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, to help with the fight against Parkinson’s disease.
You can find out more about the project at the official site.
