Zombie Command Is 1 Year Old!

Zombie Command is 1 year old… precisely.

It was 18:00 BST, May 19th, 2009 when Zombie Command went live with our first story and back then everything was so fresh and exiting that I didn’t stop adding stories for 5 hours! It still holds the record for the day with the most published stories, with 16 exciting (and not so exciting) updates. Oh for the sweet innocence and exuberance of youth.

Since then we’ve come a long way. Make the jump to see some of our favourite zombie things of the year.

Night Of The Living Trekkies – Cover Art

Announced back in March, Quirk Books latest zombie opus, Night of the Living Trekkies recently had the cover art revealed.

The premise of Night of the Living Trekkies should be the stuff those attending Star Trek cons dream of:

It’s Galaxy Quest meets Dawn of the Dead when all hell breaks loose at a Star Trek convention – and the world’s only hope for survival rests in the hands of some very determined fanboys!

Call of Duty: Black Ops Reprising Zombie Mode

Call of Duty: Black Ops Reprising Zombie Mode

Treyarch has begun hinting that the widely popular Zombie Mode from Call of Duty: World at War is set to reappear in Black Ops.

The mode was one of the biggest hits in any Call of Duty title. It was so popular that it topped the UK chart when it was originally released in 2008 and even spawned its own spin-off application for the iPhone and iPod touch.

In this month’s edition of Official PlayStation Magazine, Treyarch head Mike Lamia was asked about whether or not Zombie Mode would take a much anticipated and wanted return to Black Ops. He responded by saying:

“We really like the Zombie Mode, and as I mentioned I can’t talk about the co-op mode other than to say one of the reasons we love it so much is that it feels like it was a fan adopted mode, made out of passion of a lot of the team members here.”

There are also rumors circulating that the mode may be part of the game’s co-op, but we’ll have to wait and see. As Lamia said, “Well all I can tell you is we listen to the fanbase. Those are our consumers, so…”

Expect to see another fantastic Zombie Mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops when it’s released worldwide on November 9th for Xbox 360, PS3, PC and Wii.

George A. Romero To Launch iPhone App

George A. Romero To Launch iPhone App

With the US release of “George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead” upon US theatres in a mere two days, Romero plans to go mobile by launching a new application for the iPhone, appropriately named ‘App of the Dead’.

Developed by Additive Interactive, the app will allow the user to import photos of their friends and family and transform them into brain hungry, undead corpses. It allows you to take over the director role and transform your ordinary friends into some pretty fiendish characters.

Features include:

  • Capturing or importing a photo, followed by adding over 20 zombie features, including open wounds, weapons, and a large gallery of deformed eyes and mouth options.
  • A custom engine that allows you to “shoot” your creations and experience the amazing blood-splatter effect.
  • Save your zombie images to your phone, post them to a social networking website or e-mail them to others.

Although there is no release date specified, it’s rumored that the application will appear in the App Store within the next 2-3 weeks. iPhone owners will be eager to get their hands on this application but I’d be careful, I’ve heard it makes your device a bit hungry and may cause unexplained bite marks and loss of humanity.
