Project Zomboid

The below is Copypasta From the Project Zomboid website -

Project Zomboid is a Zombie Survival RPG. Here are some of its planned features:
Retro-isometric style with plenty of zombie insides thrown in for good measure.
A massive city and the surrounding areas to traverse, explore and loot.
Open-ended sandbox world – survival is your only goal, and we’re sorry to tell you… you WILL die eventually.
Get infected. How will you spend your final days? Will you have a heroic moment of self-sacrifice, or end up chewing your best friend’s throat out?
Meet other survivors who you can join forces with, trade with, undertake missions for, or fight with for resources.
Loot, salvage, and build what you need to survive the apocalypse, from food and medical supplies, to weapons, even just booze to help get you through the nights.
Advanced item crafting allows you to use looted items to build weapons, traps, defenses, and many other things to help you survive.
Character progression. Learn skills and perks to help your character face the challenges of survival.
Starvation, illness, loneliness, depression, alcoholism, drug addiction, suicide, insanity, trust issues. There’s more to zombie survival than shooting zombie heads off.
Join your friends and survive the apocalypse together in co-op multiplayer.
The world changes the longer you survive; power plants fail, plunging the city into darkness and making batteries and tinned food prized commodities. The army rolls into the streets to perform ‘clean up operations’ and other gamechanging events occur the longer you survive.
Play in your browser, or stand-alone, on PC, Mac and Linux.
It will be released Minecraft style, where there will be continual updates adding new features, weapons, game-play and locations.
The tech demo will just show a fraction of the planned features and is merely a taste of what is to come. We will continue developing after this point, feasibly for years and years, improving and expanding the game.

I bought my lifetime license already.  I hope they make the full version more compatible for MAC when it comes out, because even using the directions I have yet to figure out how to install the demo.  Still, the game sounds pretty awesome.  I especially love the fact the one CANNOT survive or "win" in any traditional sense. Very cool.

I played the free demo and I can't attack other human survivors. This is a problem because I was murdered by other humans in the three times I played it:

1. I followed the tutorial missions then a guy heard our radio, broke in and murdered both of us with a shotgun.

2. I murdered my wife with a pillow then I wandered around. I entered a grocery store where a survivor with a shotgun yelled at me to get out so I did but apparently not fast enough - he hunted me down and shot me to death.

3. Same as 1 except I boarded the starting bedroom up after getting some food. I waited over a day then unboarded it but the survivor was still waiting outside our room and proceeded to fire 40 shells at me - missing every time but then murdered me with a hammer.

Clearly he was a blind man who wanted your hidey hole.
