ZomCo Trailer

17 Jun

Not just in use as our URL shortener, ZomCo is a new film from Ash Tidball which asks the questions about after the zombie apocalypse, what would we do? How would we get back on track?

The film premieres this Thursday at the Odeon Manchester, UK and we may bring you a review not long after.

Zombie Wasteland Goners

16 Jun

Zombie Wasteland Goners is a new, free game being developed by Jason Ozubko. It is an online zombie board game of survival and betrayal. The game will be played by 4 players who take turns roaming the zombie wasteland, killing undead and sabotaging each other.

Every player will be randomly assigned a secret mission and tasks at the start of every game, and so every time you play you will be given new motivations and aims. Sometimes you’ll be trying to keep your best friend alive, and other times you’ll be trying to get him killed. Sometimes you’ll be desperately seeking the chopper and escape, and other times you’ll be trying to detonate the nuclear power plant and end it all. Still other times you’ll be ready to give up, become a zombie, and start killing your former friends.

ZWG is still very early in it’s development with a public alpha to come later in the year but drawing on inspirations such as Zombies!!! and Dead Rising as well as gameplay modelled on the excellent X-COM series it’s sure to be fun. However, it needs your help!

Jason is currently looking for sprite artists as well as card artists, so if you think you can help contact him here.

The Dead Must Die – Episode 1

6 May

“The Dead Must Die” is a new comedy/horror web series set after the inevitable ‘Zombie Apocalypse’, launching today as an Official DailyMotion web series.

There are 7 zombie fueled episodes, which will be appearing once a week for the next 7 weeks.

It follows two video game geeks, Steve (Stephen Russell) and other Steve (Jonny Helm) as they navigate through the wild terrain of their long awaited (and often discussed) zombie apocalypse.

Unfortunately, neither of them is really prepared for the reality of the situation…

Through blizzards, anti-zombie hate mobs, sand-eating, creepy nameless ninja chicks, crossbows, and moms, our heroes shall venture forth into this new world, where there is only one thing they can be certain of: that the dead must die!

From its beginnings as an in-character Twitter account dealing with the zombie apocalypse, The Dead Must Die has developed into a full grown monster series with the aid of its award winning creator Matthew Snyman and Digital Media Producer Alex Barkaloff (Lionsgate) and of course the lovely folks at DailyMotion.

Each episode has original art designed by a group of select illustrators from around the world, and will be available for download each week.

You can find out more at The Dead Must Die’s tumblr blog or follow them on Twitter.

Dead Rising Mobile

12 Oct

What happens when you squeeze an innovative (if flawed) Xbox game onto a mobile device, remove everything that made it innovative and have to put up with terrible controls? Dead Rising Mobile of course!

Dead Rising mobile will have no psycho fights, no escort missions, none of the improvements from Dead Rising 2 like combining weapons and from the looks of things no picture taking or story. So, eh, what’s the point?

Well, Capcom have added Twitter and Facebook :|

If you die, you can send a code out to Twitter and Facebook and if your friends find you they can bring you back to life with no penalty. Nothing more fun than waiting half an hour to play a game again.

As you can tell, I think this looks terrible and will be absolutely no fun, however there’s still time for things to change before it’s Q4 release, so I’ll not completely condemn it.

Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going back to play Dead Rising 2.
