Project Zomboid is an open-world, isometric survival horror video game that tasks players with surviving a zombie apocalypse in Knox County, Kentucky. A pre-alpha version of the game was released in 2011. The game is highly praised for its customizability and realistic survival-style gameplay. The game is highly moddable and has a dedicated modding community surrounding. Strength does change things, like taking down barricades. There is no damage stat in game, thats why damage doesnt go up. How deadly are injuries is another option (In Meta I think). For "Damage" esque thingies, it makes zombies have an easier time grabbing you and pulling you down. For Toughness, it DOES change the stats, though it's hard to.
