Project Zomboid is an open-ended zombie-infested sandbox. It asks one simple question – how will you die? Whether surviving in Knox County free-roam or controlling Indie Stone mascot Baldspot in his quest to save his injured wife Kate – death is always a certainty. Quite how long you manage to put it off is another matter…

Come on guys, we are on 26 and 29 is out already??? Keep things up and remember your friends; a lot of us supported you long before Steam was up and running.

Even if we get v29 this week that's a 6-month update. At this rate we won't see a v3x until May 2015! Is that what you mean by "frequent updates?" And now we've sat on the sidelines for a month while the Steam users got to play v29. That thing not stable yet?

Some of us customers use Desura because we dislike/hate Steam. We're already missing out on the IWBUMS (and lots of other games.) It's so nice to be told we're not worth "quite a bit more coordination" more than twice a year.

Should have just pirated the game. You can still do it to get the newer versions of the game, even though you shouldn't have to after purchasing the product. Pirates seem to care more about consumers than developers these days.

There's no excuse for the long delay, that's very true.
We are sorry about it but in regards to the IWBUMS, Desura doesn't have an option for multiple branches, yet. We are aware there are people out there who don't like Steam but if you already have an account, please consider using it just to download the more current version. Steam is only required for the download, not for playing the game.

We had a bit of a slip with build 29.4 and only were able to push the final update on Steam today. Desura will be updated shortly.

I wasn't complaining about the IWBUMS; it should have been "we already do without" instead.

And please bear in mind that using Steam "just to download" requires a Steam client to be installed and online. That's the whole point.

Understood, Thanks for keeping us in the loop. I really appreciate it.

I understand what you are saying about steam. I have often been tempted to open an account just so I could get the Zomboid updates. The reason I don't is probably the same reason others don't. I am opposed to steams stance on DRM. I know your game doesn't have it but it would just feel hypocritical to use their service and oppose them at the same time. Holding on to your integrity is difficult enough these days and I feel like a compromise like that would weaken my stance against steams unscrupulous use of DRM. When I purchase and download something. That version is mine. Mine to install and play today, tomorrow, or 10 years from now. I should not have to connect to a server and ok it with anyone when I feel like reinstalling or playing a game.

Imagine buying a car and after you handed over the money the dealer says "Were going to hang on to the keys, Just give us a quick call when you want to use it so we can make sure that your not doing anything we don't approve of with it." That's not ownership. Until steam changes it's ways I will not use them or recommend them to anyone.
