‘I am a zombie’: ‘I’m still a zombie’
Posted October 07, 2018 07:05:52The man who says he “didn’t know what a zombie was” and that he “couldn’t sleep” for years has finally found out what the word means.
Octopath Travel Restrictions is a zombie-themed online travel restriction game that requires players to complete missions in order to travel between locations and make it to the next town.
But, as you might imagine, the real test of whether or not you are a zombie comes with completing missions.
“I am the first one to kill the guy who was running away from me,” Octopath Travel restrictions player Jacob Rau told ABC News.
“The second one to get to the hospital.
And then I get to pick a destination.”
Rau says he never knew he had a condition called post-traumatic stress disorder until his 20s.
“And I was kind of stuck,” he said.
“If you don’t do something, you don.
You can’t do nothing, you know, and so I started to be kind of self-centered.
I started thinking of myself as this monster, this walking, talking zombie.”
In his 20 years of playing, Rau has only met one other person who said they are also a zombie.
“There was a guy I played with at a friend’s house and he was also a post-trauma survivor, so he’s been in some really tough places,” he explained.
“So, he had no idea that he was actually a zombie, and I was like, ‘oh, you’re just another zombie.'”
The game’s creator and the game’s director are both men, and Jacob Raux says it was important for them to make sure Octopath Travellers’ characters were real.
“Because they’ve been traumatized,” he says.
“They know what it’s like to be a zombie.”
The game is still in beta but is nearing completion and will be available for download this month.
The beta is available for $19.99 and is available now.
The game, which has more than 100 missions and includes 10 multiplayer modes, was inspired by games like The Walking Dead and Zombie Wars.
“It’s very easy to make a game about zombies and you have to make it realistic, and we did that,” Rau said.
“I think that was really important for us to not only create this world that’s just really, really dark and scary, but also have it be very, very funny.
I think it’s a really good way to make people feel like they’re in a world where they’re living their own story, not just seeing a movie.”
The first mission is titled “Kill the guy” and is set to take players through a zombie apocalypse.
Players will need to use a gun, a shovel, a walker, a shotgun and a shovel to fight off a group of walkers.
“We don’t have any of the zombies,” Jacob Raul told ABC.
“We have a bunch of different zombies.”
The zombie-inspired gameplay, which is a lot like The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, has also been used in the movie The Walking Bad.
