The lights are on
State of Decay, the very recently released Xbox LIve Arcade title, is the second fastest selling Arcade title in the service's history, behind only Minecraft.
The game released on Wednesday June 5, and according to developer Undead Labs' blog, the game has already sold more than a quarter of a million copies. The studio extended a heartfelt thank you to its fans saying, "This was you. We did not have an ad budget. We didn’t have a physical copy to load onto shelves, no worldwide multimedia push, no studio reputation with millions of followers. All we had was what we believed was a great game and a great community. And make no mistake, a solid game is not enough, not in 2013. Plenty of great games wither away in obscurity. This train got rolling because you got out and pushed."

Absolutely brilliant, innovative title. And a great value to boot.
The gameinformer review for this game was way to harsh on the graphical, frame-rate, and pop-in issues. These are present, but most of the time only while in a car, which you shouldn't be doing that often anyway. Furthermore, it is the first release version of a $20 XBLA title; compared to %99 of the games on their, this is a beautiful and technical masterpiece. I do realize that it is only the opinion of one person, but I fear that this review will dissuade people from supporting this great game, and the future planned MMO version. So please, check out other sites and reviewers because this game is getting 8 & 9 review scores elsewhere.
wow, I know I'm not one of those people. I tried the demo it was pretty good but the enemies clipping in walls, and random AI pathing for the story missions kind of annoyed me. I got to the church and the girl started talking about the peoples roles and I just it clicked my zombie fatigue hit, and it just all seemed like I have heard it before and I lost my total interest with the game.
This game is nothing short of brilliant.
