Anyone else think this game needs some Zombie's?

Anyone else think this game needs some Zombie's?
it may be the 6 hours of Walking dead i just watched but Adding a defence Mode Sounds good to me!
something with a timer so not only do you half to Try to factorio but every day that passes more Zombies show up to burn your ammo and chew on your fort!
And i ain't talkin them runny zombies! im talking night of the living dead zombies.


also and this is off topic, but there's a little spider on top of my monitor looking at me. when i waved and said hello it raised it front legs at me. i am so glad i'm not liveing in australia right now.

Err... what's wrong with the biters and spitters?

I personally never got the whole zombie thing. Don't know why people are so obsessed with them.

Zombies are the perfect enemy. They're even better than Nazis in that respect.

The have nothing to justify their actions, no personality to pity, cannot be reasoned with, and have no good reason for allowing to exist. You also can't get frowned upon for killing one, because they're technically already dead!
Basically: they allow you to liberally, and justifiably, slaughter your fellow man. Guilt-free!

They don't really fit in Factorio, though.
If the game was set on earth, then sure, but it's not, so... aliens it is!

Having a survival mode as a scenario is definitely one of the options.

nope, go back to watching your consumer garbage, oh but you know what this game really needs? microtransactions, and instead of the amazing traditional factorio gameplay and theme, lets use our precious development time to add sims type gameplay to appeal to a wider audience.

edit
ganna make a seperate thread about it in the wrong section, i don't think nobody has thought about this idea before I might be important.

Changing the biters into something else is typically something I'd see as a mod. Replace them with zombies, unicorns, or even your mother-in-law :lol:. But I feel adding zombies to Factorio would just not fit. Except maybe if it's biter zombies that come back under the command of a biter arch-Behemoth that could spawn very late game.

I like that. The underneath can build "small hills" (think to moles) which are not possible to pass - for the natives nor player. When they haven been digged, the hill disappears after a while. This introduces a strategic element.

I guess the reason, why so many zombie games exists, is, that you need barely any ai.
I mean, they are the dumb, brainless undead. All they do is walking (crawling, rushing depending on the type of zombies) towards the player and chewing on everything in front of them.


Oh, and dancing when nobody looks.
