Interesting. It sounds VERY similar to Dead of Winter. Would I be right in thinking this game appears to have the same sort of feeling?
I was looking into this game myself and was thinking the same thing - like this is "Dead of Winter lite."
It seems like there were some concepts borrowed from this game when Dead of Winter was being created - almost like they started with this and added a lot more detail.
Edit: Just ordered this on Amazon - looking forward to playing it. The gf and I are both big WD fans and watch it every week. She's not into really heavy board games and I think she would consider DoW too heavy. This one I think will work well for a more casual (read as: less nerdy - I mean this in the best way possible, BTW) gamer like herself.
Besides, the price on DoW is a bit much right now.
I tricked out my purchase of the game with some zombie minis too!
BRING ON THE DEAD!!
