Newsbrief: State of Decay, an open-world zombie survival game released last week on Xbox Live Arcade, sold more than quarter of a million copies in its first two days on sale.

The only game to sell faster on XBLA is the Xbox 360 edition of Minecraft, which managed more than 450,000 sales within its first day on sale.

State of Decay is from the Seattle-based Undead Labs, founded by World of Warcraft co-creator Jeff Strain.

More glory to the survival genre! Eagerly waiting for the sadly not even "soon" to come PC port. Third party issues, I hear.

Many describe State of Decay as the zombie version of GTA. It's open world, there's a lot of things to do and you can "customize" your gameplay. The graphics is not too flashy but it doesn't distract gamers from it's excellent gameplay.

I'm sure they will gain more sales if they will have the PC version as many keyboard and mouse warriors are craving for it.

And by the way, for the missions perhaps this walkthrough would help: http://www.cheatmasters.com/blog/2013/06/21/state-of-decay-walkth
