‘ZED: Absolution’ Searches For Backers For This Divine Shooter


A few months back I came across a great looking and very promising top down shooter called ZED: Absolution (ZED) and just a few days back the developers Zombie Killers put up an Indiegogo campaigning and need your help, but what is ZED?.

ZED is a top down shooter which draws much of its inspiration from classic games like SmashTV but does not simple just lift the idea, they have gone much further and expanded upon the idea.

The story for ZED is a very interesting tale of redemption, taking a great deal of inspiration from biblical stories. ZED is essentially a fallen angel in who has been banished from the holy lands and must earn his redemption by fighting in the Tournament Of The Accord.

It is in this tournament which ZED can claim his absolution and finally return to the holy land once more, this will not be easy as each realm will throw new and more terrifying warriors of legion at you.

ZED looks to be a promising new top down shooter with an unconventional story that seems to give this otherwise mindless body melter an in-depth story and no doubt a fantastic narrative. By combining RPG, FPS, and multiplayer elements into ZED it seems that Zombie Killers have created a fun in-depth game that offers a lot of potential game play.


Currently Zombie Killers have an uphill as they try to raise the remaining funds for the game via Indiegogo, which was just lunched a few days ago. Zombie Killers are looking for $25,000 (Canadian dollars) to make this game a reality and get the game into its finished state.

Offering a full range of rewards and tiers Zombie Killers are hoping enough people will put their money where their mouth is and help them complete this interesting new title.

There is even a pre-release demo version of the game available if you need more convincing which should give you a little taste of what the end product will be like.

Be sure to check out the ZED: Absolution’s Indiegogo page to find out more about how you can get involved. The Indiegogo page also has a link to the pre-release demo it can also be accessed via the developer’s website.
