Project Zomboid mod is Disco Elysium but it’s the apocalypse

We love a bit of Disco Elysium here at PCG towers, with the Final Cut version of the game currently at #1 (opens in a new tab) on our list of the best PC games. Another game that we are a big fan of is Project Zomboid, which has gradually amassed a substantial and creative community. (opens in a new tab) for years of excellent developer support. You probably know where this is going.

Modder Gabester created Elysium Island (opens in a new tab) in Project Zomboid, a map that recreates certain locations from the Disco Elysium, including the hostel cafe the Whirling-In-Rags. The mod also includes other elements from the game, for example, “A specific warehouse floor has no lights. You’ll need a torch to uncover a terrible secret.”

“[This] Gabester writes: “Inspired by Martinaise from Disco Elysium, you can find a few familiar locations. Spoilers are kept to a minimum, so it will be interesting for those who want to try it out. “

Elysium Island mode combines nicely with an earlier Gabester mode, the Disco Elysium clothing pack. Look at Kim killing zombies!

You will need some additional tile packs for the mod to work, explained and linked on the Steam workshop page (opens in a new tab). Gabester writes: “I started to focus only on getting the Whirling just right” (opens in a new tab)“and then it spirals into a few more buildings (to be exact I can lol).”

The Zomboid project is still in active development (you can see the most recent roadmap here (opens in a new tab)), while Disco Elysium’s ZA/UM developer is hard at work on his unannounced next project (the studio recently posted a lot of job ads (opens in a new tab)). There’s no news on what that could be, though designer and lead writer Robert Kurvitz has said in the past that he wants to make a sequel. (opens in a new tab).
