Six words about zombie games
by Lewis Pulsipher on 05/09/12 10:32:00 am   Expert Blogs   Featured Blogs

The following blog post, unless otherwise noted, was written by a member of Gamasutra’s community.
The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company.

 

According to Tweetdeck, one of the trending:worldwide topics on Twitter not so long ago was 6 word stories. In the past few months I've asked people to say 6 words about game design, programming, wargames, stories in games, and casual games, as well as innovation (and plagiarism) in games.

This time the challenge is this: say six (interesting or amusing) words about zombie games.

Deadly undead horde, find a weapon!

I look forward to Dead Rising 3. The franchies brings such a nice blend of looting, killing and completing objectives within a limited time frame to the genre.
