Anyone got input on Project Zomboid? Loks like a fun game. Takes what I love about zombie and these types of games and molds them into an old school format.....

I bought it about a year ago when it was only on their site and Desura. I had a lot of fun with it back then. It was fun sneaking around, crafting, looting, exploring etc. I never did get far enough to build a base or fortify a shelter. My only complaint back then was the loot was static, you would always find the same items in the same places. They were quick with new builds back then, and then kind of faded. Now that they're on Steam it's seen several updates, but I haven't played it recently.

The last time I played it was a big update right before they went on Steam and it was almost a completely different game. They ramped up the difficulty to the point where I didn't have fun. There were too many zombies, so as soon as I stepped out of whatever building I spawned, I was immediately swamped. They were way too aware and I couldn't sneak past them and couldn't lose them once they started chasing me. There is a sandbox mode where you can tweak everything from the type of zombies (fast/slow), to their awareness and the number and frequency of spawn though.

I did fire it up after activating my Steam key, but I didn't have time to start a game. There have been more updates since then and a new map. I think they added the story mode back, or they were talking about it. There is a demo, but I don't know how up to date it is compared to the version owners have.
