Maurino Berry moved the card Remove zombies to Doing on rust
They’re actually removing it.
I personally don’t like the idea of having human (bandits) NPCs in game, there are already players who does that. I think that mutated animals (Garry will probably follow this line, based on his blog posts) or “bizarre” creatures would be way better. Maybe based on habitat, some creatures would be only found on high spots and mountains, while others only in forests, etc. Some of them only being seeing at night. This way the environment would be way more interessant and dangerous, leaving people to think twice before leaving without proper weapons and stuff.
And you guys, what do you think will replace zombies? What would you like to see in their place?
