I admit it. GAMEBREAKER has become zombie obsessed.
Just when you think the whole zombie thing is done and over with, Gary’s introduced to DayZ, a bunch of us start playing The Secret World and I stumble across a Kickstarter project by Massive Black for their new game Zombie Playground.
Now the first thing the developers want backers to know about Zombie Playground is that despite this game featuring children, it’s a game for adults. A big part of the game is to combine the feel of classic zombie movies with the nostalgia of being a kid.
For those of you thinking the name Massive Black is familiar, you’d be correct. The company is known for creating art assets for several games including Dragon Age: Origins, Skyrim, Bioshock 2 and Infamous. They have also worked on films like the Transformers series.
The team has also brought in specialists to help them with the project including musicians Aesop Rock and Shawn Lee as well as Runic Games Erich Schaefer who will be giving them guidance on the project.
At this point, the game looks like it has potential to be pretty awesome. The concept is fun and the names behind it are pretty solid. I’ll be keeping an eye on this to see how it pans out.
