"Moving Hazard" is a game being co-developed by IllFonic ("Nexuiz", "Star Citizen", "Friday the 13th") and Psyop Games ("Nightmare: Malaria"). At it's core, it is a tactical, team-based shooter wherein the players have to venture out into zombie-plagued areas in search of supplies - so with each match you are essentially battling the other team of survivors and the zombies in the area.
What makes "Moving Hazard" different from other shooters set in zombie apocalypses is that while the zombies are out to get you too, you also have ways to herd the zombies away from you, or toward a specific area, or (if you really need to) in your direction. The zombies aren't just mindless monsters out to get you - they are also pieces on a chessboard, providing an interesting element of strategy in what otherwise would seem like "just another shooter."
It is certainly an nice change of pace in a market already over-saturated by zombie settings. Rather than just having zombies be essentially dangerous background noise in an environment, now they're a tool that the player can use to lead their team to victory.
I have to say, calling in a zombie airstrike on that annoying sniper in the tower definitely seems like some fun.
