I've been following this for a while. 

They were allowing people to purchase it for donations of 5,10, or 15 pounds on Google Checkout.  Google Checkout didn't like the idea of the word donation so they shut them down.  They finally got back up and running by selling 3 really crappy, simple games for 5,10, or 15 pounds, and you get Project Zomboid free.  Heh.

And then Paypal decided to hold their money for 6 months because they don't like the idea of pre-orders because it could be ripe with fraud.  (They cash all the checks, and don't finish the game)

...because they do this with any remotely viable excuse, because they make interest on it. Paypal has a bad history of doing this and not telling people the reasons why. Look at what they did with Notch's minecraft cash previously, they literally held it to ransom. Then there is the more famous Something Awful charity donations deal. Any account with a sizable slice of cash in it, they will often find/make reasons to freeze the account. Google for the horror stories (yes, many more than just the higher profile ones).

4chan has a pirated version, lurk around/use browser, just in case you cant buy it. I played it, i like where this game is going. There simply isnt enough content to make this enjoyable for long though(Its understandable). However, adding building mechanics similar to haven and hearth and NPCs (Which they plan on doing immediately after they release a playable demo) would make this game an instant buy on steam for me. Who knows what else the future can bring, multiplayer?

On a completely unrelated note. I havent been to this forum in a logn while, something like 4 yrs. I go to the PC board and I see Terraria, Minecraft, Project Zomboid, Dwarf Fortress and Haven and Hearth. Good stuff.

Think they'll ever make it a MMO? Would shake things up a little, with players who managed to get their hands on assault rifles and other guns stealing supplies from the fortresses of weaker players.

There should be a multiplayer option, but making it an MMO would be a really bad idea. Sometimes I just want to kill zombies without being teabagged, y'know?

Read over that sentence again, and think about it.

That totally makes me want to play this game more.  Nothing says zombie survival co-op like huge amounts of butthurt and a shock to the nuts.

Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

I just played it for the first time,
pretty cool game, has a lot of potential,
would make a pretty cool multilayer game,

I accidentally burnt my house down cooking soup, so I went to try to save the guys wife, but zombies broke down the door, and I had boarded up the back door so I was screwed,
about to do try#2

They've added Molotov Socktails and Sleeping Pill Loots.

Be afraid.
