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.
