All Zombies Must Die Announced

All Zombies Must Die is a newly project just announced by doublesix (Burn Zombie Burn!) for release this fall for Windows via Steam and on the PlayStation Network. The game appears to be an isometric shooter, and they describe it as a "mix of weapons-based arena combat and light RPG elements," using terms like "quirky" to describe a "bright, comic style" (shown in these screenshots) reflecting the "silly yet sinister nature of the gameplay." According to Jim Mummery, creative director at doublesix: "After the success of Burn Zombie Burn, we’ve been looking forward to dishing up a new serving of undead craziness but this is no straight sequel. All Zombies Must Die! has its own unique ingredients with weapons-based arena combat, weapon crafting, character development, a whole lot of questing and much much more – all mixed in with a huge portion of zombie action." They also offer a trio of trailers, but since they all use the same gameplay footage to execute the same joke three times, we've just posted one of them, which is embedded below.

I just wonder when this whole Zombie hype will be over again.
I hope soon.

Would you prefer a WWII game?

I still think developers need to explore the use of robots to populate their games. Using human (or humanoid) characters does create some limitations, especially when it comes to RPGs. Seems like every game I play has a character with some form of memory loss....


Anyway, back on topic. I picked up Burn Zombie Burn during a sale, and it's not bad. It runs fine for me, and it's a good way to relieve some stress in short bursts.

Already a tapped-out genre (Zombies). This looked like something my 7 year old nephew would play on his GameBoy.

I don't think I'll be preordering this one, as the marketing campaign just isn't strong enough to persuade me. LOL!!!

I would alter the title slightly to "All Zombie Games Must Die". The whole zombie thing is getting old fast.

TotalBiscuit's "WTF is..." turned me off their first game. Seemed to run like crap and be pretty simplistic. I'll keep an eye on this one though, since it used the magic "RPG elements" phrase.
