ZAMB! developer diary video and why it’s cool to show PS4 controllers in your shots

ZAMB! Biomutant Extermination is now available on Steam Early Access and to celebrate the occasion, developer Nano Games working with  Kasedo Games under Kalypso Media has released a developer diary which gives greater insight into the game. What’s also interesting is the emphasis on showing off the PS4 controller in view whist discussing the game. Something we’ve seen today with a Tweet from 4J Studios which also shows off the PS4 controller in an unrelated context. Is this the start of a new trend from developers?

About ZAMB!

Play as two special operatives and fight your way through a mad scientist’s secret asteroid base whilst defending yourself against his army of evil mutants. The amazing brawler Cye is trained in melee combat and uses powerful gadgets of mass destruction; or out-smart the enemy with the master tactician Chrome, an agent of ranged warfare and master of AI turret defence systems.

Develop the skills of your Agent, increase their power and overcome 24 uniquely challenging levels which get harder as you progress. Will you use a “punch now, ask questions later” approach? Or are you a tactical genius that tricks the enemy into bottle necks, melting them down with a devastating turret barrage?
