In Dead State, zombies aren't the real story

In Dead State, zombies aren't the real story

Brian Mitsoda has had years of experience in the gaming industry, best known for his writing on Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines. He has recently left Obsidian Entertainment (along with his wife, Annie) to create an indie studio called DoubleBear Productions. Their first project, Dead State, has piqued the interest of fans. The game's Kickstarter has raised more than $150,000, far surpassing its original goal.

After leaving Obsidian, the Mitsodas moved out to Seattle to launch their new venture. They talked with Iron Tower Studio (Age of Decadence) about a potential project, which got the couple thinking about what they wanted to do first. Brian came up with the idea for Dead State, a zombie RPG mainly about humans. After announcing the game on the Iron Tower message boards, other developers began to jump on board, giving the Mitsodas plenty of talent to work with.
