  • at the savini residence, go to the gate, turn left and you'll see a sign saying "vote richard grimes for sheriff. rick is short for richard and in the walking dead comic rick grimes is the main character and he is also a police officer. i think the kirkman residence takes it's name from the author of the walking dead comic but kirkman might be a very common name in america.

    • And its possible the Savini residence is a reference to Tom Savini, who is known for doing make-up and special effects for Dawn of the Dead and many other horror films. He also appeared in Dawn of the Dead and From Dusk Till Dawn among others.

    • And the developers have said many times that the game is full of references to the zombie genre in general. Including Dawn of the Dead, Walking Dead, Zombieland, and countless others.

        Loading editor
    • Yes, definitely all references... Savini, Kirkman, Rick Grimes.

    • There is also a plants vs zombies reference. It is in a backyard with sunflowers with lawnmowers behind them, some zombies were dead under them! Laughed so hard at this.

    • There is also a part where Ed is talking to Marcus about their vacation next year and should they go canoeing in Georgia (referring to Deliverance), caving in North Carolina (The Descent), or camping at Crystal Lake (Friday the 13th).

    • The name of the gas station is Big Daddy, which is the name of the head zombie in Land of the Dead, another Romero zombie movie.

    • The Twinkies are a Zombieland reference.

    • And the achievement "Gotta enjoy the little things" is a reference to Zombieland when you hit hit a zed with your car door.

        Loading editor
    • And the Rule #1 achievement (Cardio) is also from Zombieland.

    • As for the Dawn of the Dead reference, Snyder Trucking Warehouse is no doubt named after Zack Snyder, whose directorial debut was the 2004 remake (I've noted it in the wiki)...

    • ed has a trivia skill that talks about the housmates are doing its an dead set easter egg e.g a spoof series on big brother

    • also wwz or dead island refrence with the crashed plane you decide 

        Loading editor
    • On the pages of these things (Synder Trucking Company and "Gotta enjoy the little things") we should put these references in the Tivia section.

    • thought it was cool with the crashed airplane like the belarus airlines plane that crashed in cardiff in world war Z movie, although WWZ was released  after state of decay (Also i hope the sequel to WWZ is set in ireland, could be like isreal (in the movie there was a map of infected nation's and ireland was uninfected)

        Loading editor
    • It was released after State of Decay but it was based on a book that was released before State of Decay so its possible

        Loading editor
    • Yeah but i don't remember anything about a crashed plane (other then the pilot who had crashed their fighter plane) maybe you read the book more recently and there was a crashed airplane then grand, But i think  crashed airline jet's are common for horror flick's, Is there even any supplies down in the plane wreck? i never knew cause the areas filled with infected.

    • I actually have not read World War Z, I was just mentioning that in the event that something in SoD was a reference to World War Z it probably would have come from the book not the movie. So no idea if it actually contains a plane.

    • there's no crashed airliner in WWZ the book, the closest thing is a doctor mentioning that victims with small infections could have gotten on flights and spread the zombie seeds across the world before serious outbreaks started happening.

      They said very early in development that they were not in a sense making a movie version of the book but essentially doing their own thing. One of the big changes is that they opted not to use the traditional slow zombies which is a big part of many of the things described in both WWZ and the Zombie Survival Guide. By using the faster modern zombies it renders a lot of the stories in WWZ unusable as there are numerous cases where a survivor uses their wits and superior speed/agility to deal with zombies.

      They borrowed some characters, events and places, but essentially made their own zombies movie while trying have a built in audience via the existing book fans by using the WWZ rights.

      There's very little chance that the crashed plane is based on anything in the WWZ movie unless the people at Undead Labs were given a chance to view an early screener.

      I am disappointed that so little happens with the crashed plane as it's one of the cooler looking environments. It would have been very cool to have a mission(s) involving it or at least a giant horde created when a victim managed to infect most of the plane... How awesome would it have been to find a black box recording of the pilots last frantic messages as a growing horde of zombies starts beating on the cockpit door?

    • I was also a bit disappointed that there was no elaboration on the crashed plane in the game. Especially considering you can find the landing gear on a road across the map.

        Loading editor
    • yeah either there should be a note or black box maybe left behind by a survivor from the crash if someone did survive as the notes you find laying around you can read as it shhould describe the crash and how it happend maybe its the cause of the outbrake as some infected were on the plane and cauded it to crash and they spred out infecting every one

    • McReady Farm probably gets its name from Bear McReady, who performs several of the songs used in The Walking Dead.

      There is a sign outside the Kirkman Residence, which says Simon and Nick landscaping company. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are the actors who play the main characters in Shaun of The Dead

    • You know there is a box saying "warning infected" on it by the loot on top of a crate so that really points to it being the cause of the zombies.
