IRL Shooter will not, alas, be making it to Sydney after all, after its Pozible campaign raised only AU$132,498 of its AU$1 million goal — but the prospects are looking a heck of a lot better for Melbourne.

The story, which began with Patient 0 , will be continuing on with Lazarus, with sessions due to start in October this year. The game is currently seeking funding on Pozible, with a much more modest target of AU$308,000. It has already brought in over AU$104,000 after just three days, so it's already looking promising.

"The Facility is still under lockdown and the government has started to take action to ensure no possible outbreak occurs," the campaign reads. "Shrouded in secrecy, your primary objective is to follow the orders of your unknown employer and escort and protect your assigned communications officer through the facility. Your secondary objective is to covertly breach the sublevels, recovering or destroying high value targets and intelligence, while surviving the brutal onslaught of mutation."

Features that were going to be introduced for the Sydney game are now slated for the new Melbourne game, including the upgraded weapons, the pain belt, and the "infected" reward tier, which allows you to play as one of the zombies.

The tickets are a lot more affordable, too; rather than AU$50 for an Infected ticket, the price is AU$20, and a player ticket, which includes two weapons, comes in at AU$90 rather than AU$175.

Head on over to the Pozible campaign to check it out and pledge your support.
