Project Zomboid Code Theft

DIYgamer has word from a couple of Twitter posts that two laptops with the current builds of Project Zomboid were stolen from the home of the lead developer of The Indie Stone's zombie game (thanks reddit). These statements were apparently followed by some drunken twitter ranting, which provoked an apology on Lemmy's Blog and the apparent deletion of Lemmy's Twitter account. There's an official statement on the Project Zomboid website, and here's a bit:

I wont beat around the bush. The Indie Stone have just suffered a major set-back. The Newcastle flat where Lemmy and Binky live and work was burgled this evening, and so far the clearest things taken are two computers and Lemmys credit card.

Project Zomboid was regularly backed up from machine to machine, but rarely sadly and infuriatingly externally. We have lost an awful lot of work. Mash and Binky dont even know this has happened yet.

Chris (Lemmy) is quite distressed to be honest were still dealing with something that was discovered little over an hour ago. After his tweets on the subject we both agreed itd be best if I wrote a blog here to calm fears. He clearly isnt able to currently. (Its also probably worth saying that there were no PZ player personal details etc. on the machines).

This will clearly severely delay the next update, which was very near completion. I personally only just finished my work on it today (one of the final things on the to-do list) and had it ready for input tomorrow.

Project Zomboid, however, will come back stronger.

Sorry, no sympathy from me. While working on my freeware Warcraft 3 mod, I used to copy the unprotected map to my laptop (off my desktop) before taking it with me into work each morning.

Gotta be smarter than that.
