I can't launch it. I've tried checking for updates, resetting my wifi, checking my storage, restarting my computer, reinstalling the game, spamming the launch button, and checking task manager... Is this thing supposed to be functional or disfunctional???
A downloadable game for Windows
Zombie Barricades is an exciting new multiplayer aRPG!
We've been cooking it up for nearly a year now and we've reached that point in development where we really need to start getting player feedback. If you've just joined us welcome, grab a pew, you've arrived at the right time.
So we have all the technical stuff sorted, we know we're not going to have to wipe anyone's accounts in an update or two and the game has a patcher so it's easy to keep up to date.
All that remains is the exciting stuff: Injecting missions, maps, vehicles, skins and weapons. Featuring so far:
- 800+ Zombies per map (grows as more Players join)
- Multiplayer online (up to 24 Players per map)
- Skill based leveling system
- Customizable weapons
- Ragdoll physics
So you've joined us at the right time because this is where the fun begins, you can jump into the game hopefully with a few pals and enjoy slaying Zombies and maybe give us a bit of feedback, what you liked, what you didn't and what you'd like to see more of.
We want to create something the players have jumped on board and helped to mould.
It's a free to play game that won't break the bank, so if you like what you see support us by chucking a couple of dollars our way (not essential) and subscribe to the blog to keep up to date because those updates will be coming thick and fast!
Are you a Youtuber or Streamer who want to record Zombie Barricades?
Yes of course you have our permission (as if you have to ask!)
Here this pack of logos and stuff might help you out. Let us know when it's done and we'll help you spread the word!

Hey, I have a question, a few times (like now) i open the game select the class etc. and I'm click play, the game load and i go to some spectate mod (?) and i have a knife, a some med kit, and a few days later i play the game and then i get all of my weapons and stuff back, so my question: Is this "spectate" mod is the part of the game? I mean some map update, build, or idk something like this.
Hey, there's an issue which sometimes causes a connection to drop into the 'spectator mode.'
The mode doesn't yet exist in Zombie Barricade btw - but we might add it! Thanks - Jimbob
The window for the extract keeps showing up every time I click to launch the game and I clicked to extract and still does it.
So right now just no can't recommend that this is a proper game I mean to extract a game is already shady enough.
If a game can't even launch from its installed browser (itch) is a failure.
I saw this game from multiple youtube channels who has played this and made video of the gameplay and I'm going to say word for word on certain video exactly what was in the video before I came here.
What you from me. You want me to perform a satanic ritual and sacrifice my baby child.(of course there was more I was just lazy to find the video again and type the rest)
(The bird man) subname from channel name
And now clearly understand why its a pain.
So for the itch.io builds we've removed the need to extract the game. But you'll need to delete the game from itch and reinstall it again to pick it up (don't look at us it's just the way it works.)
Appreciate the feedback anyways and we understand it can be frustrating but please remember this is a free game in a pre-alpha state! ;)
the updater doesnt work, the game files are on My desktop but it does not work it just says error downloading file. Pls help
Hey there - try grabbing the latest version from the games website (http://zombiebarricades.com/download/zbportable.exe)

So i click on the continue and i get the patcher window but its say Fetching patch information... 1.03 and then nothing happens, it stucked forever, pls reply or update it.
Hey there - try grabbing the latest version from the games website (http://zombiebarricades.com/download/zbportable.exe)
Sorry for your troubles!
Its a good game but its lagging really hard, keep up the work if its dont have the lags it will be a good game, oh and idk the delay on the move is bcs of lags or bcs of options
my updater isnt work i open file and that say that file is not a right format or something like that, what i have to do? that say input string was not in correct format
Strange - i'm updating the version here on itch to the latest version - but you can always grab the latest version from the website http://zombiebarricades.com/download/zbportable.exe (you can skip running the updater with latest version.)
Hey why my game wont start? after i click play now..... its only show a place and wont start or wont spawning a player? how ? pls help
Hey I've got the same problem, did you figure out a way to fix it?
Idk untill now i cant play it
Regarding ghost items: It seems a dropped item checks to see if your inventory is full and then gives it a header, making that item unable to be picked up even if you empty inventory space after.
I died, quit, restarted and logged back in (respawning never worked for me) and all I got was this: https://gyazo.com/cb1eaeff7682e1266d5faa57f4b82c84
Even a reinstall, cache clearing and restart later: no dice. Something account oriented?
Got a lot of warping and lag issues. Also for me, carrying the baseball bat and using mouse leftclick you're Usain Bolt fast, not sure if intended (everyone knows you run faster with a knife!)
Either way, a lot of polishing to do still and some content/quests other than shooting zombies 24/7 would be nice. Good luck.
Many thanks for the feedback, update coming soon addressing the inventory and warping issues!
Very easy days yet, we've released a first playable so we can get feedback like this. Thanks again!
All I really am right now is confused because in itch trying to launch the game but keeps showing a small window to extract it. At the this point I beleive immediately see that this game has no future if it can't fix this.
extract it then, that is what your supposed to do anyways...
I did but it keeps popping up is were I'm getting at here I swear dumb fucks show up at the dumbest moments.
Still sometimes get issues with "ghost items" in which a zombie drop wont really be there, and wont pick the item up regardless of inv space. Just wodered if this is a client side problem?
I get stuck on "Creating Character".. it just sits there forever.. the little circle is spinning and the "tips" keep scrolling past, but it neve actually does anything... any fix for this?
edit: nevermind. I figured it out. If anyone else is having this issue, just run it in Admin Mode
I dont get the ''ZB Update'' or whatever after I download it.. someone help please..
This is a great game concept and to be honest I did enjoy it, I do wish there was more content of course but the art style is great and I can't wait to see what becomes of this game keep up the great work!
Thanks very much, we've just released another patch adding some more content - getting there aha thanks again!
Do you have a lot of zombies versus the number of people, so it takes a lag?
There are four users on the server. But there are 960 zombies ..
It is a second hit, and though it is a No-PVP option, it dies to the PVP user.
(They Play like this.. :P http://prntscr.com/gdzk6b)
Normally, should only the user using the PVP option be able to attack?
(PvP User vs PvP users fight! Or this game could already but I have made a mistake ...)
And there are a lot of hard mobs near the entrance of the city, so the efficiency of bullets is not good. It would be nice if you were a little behind.
(Of course, I use guns first, so it is a trap that mob damage is not done because melee skill is low. :P)
Or security guards do not work. At least if zombies try to get inside the city, city guard can either kill them, or work if guard have a higher level of zombies or hard zombies than user's level ..
(W, A, S, D) movements are good, but the disadvantages are that they are slow to respond or they are difficult to escape if i hit them. Personally, I want the ability to change the right-click and left-click movements of an option. Unconsciously, I hitting the NPC is the case .. ;; or just move to that direction (mouse cursor) while I hold down the mouse button. And as a personal feeling, the character feels as if something heavy is moving around on the move.
If the disadvantages are well secured, however, this game is likely to be a Good Game.
Anyway, you are hard to develop, but have a good day / week / weekend~ : D
- PvP is broken right now so it's a free for all, fix next update.
- The city is a dangerous place for a low level character :P
- The NPC patrols will fire at enemies next update
- We will introduce key bindings in a future update
- We are looking at hosting regional servers, but if your PC or internet is slow, we can't fix that. (Speed is great for me, server is in Germany and I am in East Asia!)
Thanks very much for the feedback!
Oh, was the server (west) Europe? Then, I understand.
Because, I play FPS games Europe / USA / Asia (Servers) is not able to play because Europe is high. Ping goes over 300.
The United States Server sometimes drops below the Ping 300 if the internet condition is okay.
Hello, played Zomebie Barricades for about 2 hours yesterday, when I got the game, and what I have to say is IT IS AWSOME! Bad news first. though. I see where your going with the LOL-ish controls of the click to move but not sure if that fits with the game. would much rather use WSAD to move the character so players could run back and shoot at the same time. Awsome game so far!! Can't wait for more updates in the future.
Hey hey! Cheers for the great feedback. It's as if you read our minds, the next update is going to include WSAD controls :D but not sure about being able to move and shoot - part of the tension is having to stop and aim with the Zombies (and soon to be other foes) gaining on you. If you can move and fire, a lot of that tension would be removed and the game too easy do you think?
But you're right, WSAD does add a lot to the gameplay...
We can even leave the mouse click-move stuff in, I find myself switching between the two.
OK, thats fine as long as the WSAD become controls.
How about adding a strong wobbling to aiming while moving around and no jitter when idling, so players would consider to stop and aim precisely in order to not waste ammo? You could adjust it so it is more difficult to aim when the character is runing than walking and the best when standing still.
I have no ideas what buttons do what or what to do with the floating plank? or the floating hammer? A tutorial or some button control layouts would be amazing :)
Can you make a mac version or too hard.
There will be a mac version when we're further along but for now it's just Windows 64bit.
Not very many people game on a mac (and the hardware isn't exactly great for it) so we're better off focusing on Windows and then Linux.
I still can't play it. I play for 4 seconds and then I lose my connection......
I have the same problem as you, except it never loads.
Are you still having problems? There was an issue causing some people to disconnect that but we patched it yesterday
this game is awesome :D
Cant update the game
Is there an error message?
Are you running 64bit Windows?
Have you tried downloading it again?
yes I tryed to donwlad it again. not fixed
the error message is "An error ocurred while trying to downlade file"
My computer is running on Windows 10 64 bit
Hehe OK - just checking.
Did you try downloading the game again?
I covered Zombie Barricades in a little series I do on my channel!
Banter aside, I'm actually pretty excited to keep up with Zombie Barricades, definitely some impressive stuff for being so early off!
Thanks very much man! Believe me when I say, you ain't seen nothing yet ;)
I keep losing connection. I can't play it because of that :/
Hey there, we're working on a fix for the issue - sorry for the hassle
Cannot Launch Game Comes upC:\Users\DrDoo\AppData\Roaming\itch\apps\Zombie Barricades\ Really confused on why can Extract does nothing when finished re laucnhing game does nothing Re-installing Twice Does nothing very confused any fixs possibly?
Hey, browse to the folder C:\Users\DrDoo\AppData\Roaming\itch\apps\Zombie Barricades\ and see if there is a 'ZB Updater' file in there and run it, that should launch the game.
We're going to get it to integrate better with the itch.io app - sorry you're having troubles.
Just downloaded but got an error while trying to launch for the first time, doesnt work?
NVM, i just used the reinstall feature on the itch app and it works now?
I'm about to try it. It looks like a cool game. BTW does it matter what version of Windows it is? I have Windows XP.
Hey, should work on Windows XP - did it?
Sorry, it didn't, when I started it, I got one of these errors, but I don't remember which one. (if you want me to get it again, I can and I'll tell you which error.) It was either:
1. It couldn't execute the file.
2. It said in wasn't a valid Win application.
3. My screen went pink upon starting the game.
If you could help me out, it would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
Just sits there and loads forever
There was probably some maintenance going on at the time, we were busy applying patches to the server over the weekend.
Sorry about that.
It says there are two files to download, which one should we download
If you want to unzip it onto your desktop it's 'zbportable'
If you want to install it and have icon on desktop 'zbsetup'
Little preview of the game right now. I had a lot of fun, lots of potential here.
Awesome man, thanks very much!
mine wont work help me please
Sorry you're having troubles, where are you getting to?
I get disconnected when I try to join a server. Are the servers down?
yeah me too disconnected but when im finally that join then i walk like lag and do not always work that walk :/
Hey guys, servers got hit pretty hard plus there were a few issues with them that needed to be patched out in the background.
It's 4am here now and we think we sorted it, should be normalizing soon if they haven't already. Thanks!
i can't registre becuse it says my email is blacklisted and by far as i know its not. idk if im missing something or it is a bug.
Hey, sorry to hear that you're having trouble :(
What domain does your email address use? is it @gmail.com or @yahoo.com for example?
havent played the game yet cuz of server maintenance but i really like the graphics and ragdolls
how did i know if i havnt played it yet? :O
Seems pretty cool I guess. Just hate seeing these bought assets in multiple games though.
Hey thanks, I know what you mean - but they make a good starting point.
If the game takes off we'll likely have custom stuff made, we are a coder heavy team at the minute.
you could use WASD for controlling the player icon
