Hi there, my name is Dev Gibby ~ Ever since I built my first PC to play custom zombie maps on ‘Call of Duty: World at War,’ I knew PC gaming would be a huge part of my life. My passion for zombies didn’t just stop there—I grew up playing iconic games on my PlayStation 2 and 3, like ‘Resident Evil 5,’ ‘Dead Rising,’ ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Fallout,’ ‘Bioshock,’ and the ‘Sly’ series. However, once I switched to PC, there was no looking back; my PlayStations found their way into storage, and my heart stayed with PC gaming.

My love for survival games deepened with ‘Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead’s DayZ’ mod, where fate had me meet Dev Ear and Dev SuperPoggers atop the triple yellow in Cherno. A simple meetup on TeamSpeak turned into a lifelong friendship. We’ve traveled across states—from California to Florida—bonding over countless survival games like ‘Rust Legacy’ and ‘WarZ.’ Our adventures led us to run our own Rust servers and Minecraft communities, even tinkering with game development tools like Unity and Unreal Engine.

Our shared dreams and dedication have culminated in the creation of ZSGO, our ultimate zombie survival game. Bringing our collective expertise and creativity to the table, we’re committed to crafting an unforgettable gaming experience that stands out in the survival genre.

Howdy survivors!

My name is Dev Ear, and I am currently involved in handling the gameplay loop, level design, marketing, website development, and running the Discord! I am thrilled to have stepped into game development and I am learning something new every day. I hold a bachelor’s degree in economics and have been studying survival fps games for over a decade, having explored almost every survival fps game available.

Given the current lack of new survival fps games, I am determined to fill that gap and create something that brings back the feeling I had playing survival games as a kid!

Apart from game development, I enjoy making music and occasionally touching the grass. However, until we reach release, I will put these interests aside for a while. I can’t wait to meet you all in ZSGO!

Dev Poggers

Oi bruvs, Super Poggers here,

I’ve been gaming and programming since I was 11 years old, playing Counter-Strike 1.6, Garry’s Mod, Warcraft 3 as well the original DayZ mod for ArmA 2: OA. I’ve known Dev Ear and Dev Gibby since we first met on the SAS DayZ server on top of Triple Yellow. We’ve grown to play tons of different games over the years, exploring countless FPS and crafting survival games. I have a great passion for computer science and technology in general and am always looking to improve or automate my day-to-day.

Since Gibby told me about ZSGO, I have offered help throughout its development. I wouldn’t say I am pulling any strings since I don’t really get my hands dirty inside the engine, but I do help debug problems, analyze the impact of system design changes, offer ideas and solutions to support the team, and sit in Discord for hours at a time to find that missing semicolon or disconnected blueprint node. I am also translating my DevOps knowledge from my career to better streamline our CI/CD processes, as I really would like for us to be able to ship updates as fast as we make them.

I look forward to bringing the ZSGO community our take on a zombie survival game and hope to see you guys on Main Level… speaking of, we really need a new name for that.

Dev Jest

Hello, I go by Jest and I’m a Developer and Programmer for ZSGO. I’m an avid survival game modder and community contributor to several games for over 5+ years, my passion for the genre runs deep. Perhaps we’ve already run into each other in the wastelands but if not, “You Friendly?”

After years of learning the workings of Unreal Engine, I decided to team up with several individuals to try and bring our vision to life levying the power of the new Unreal Engine 5. If I’m not saving bullets against zombies I also enjoy creating music, hardware tinkering/modding, taking apart old software, and gaming in general. Hope to see you out there, stay safe and survive!

Dev yellow51

Greetings Survivors, my name is Albin. But you can call me yellow51, or simply yellow. I have been an avid PC gamer for several years, and into programming and software and game development for a while as well. My passion for the gaming industry and developing games and software started when I was around 14 years old.

I am currently pursuing a degree in Computer Science – Software Engineering, and I have a passion for the survival, sandbox, and zombie game genres. I enjoy exploring different types of games within this genre and have spent countless hours playing them. One of my all time favorite games, Space Engineers, was the game that originally got me into game development, when I started out by modding the game.

Now, I am a programmer for ZSGO, and I hope to bring the community an amazing and fun experience throughout the journey of the game’s development!
