London, UK, 18th July 2014  – It’s the height of festival season and making a noise, Green Man Gaming are bringing a huge line up of hot zombie titles to the main stage for its ZOMBIE FEASTIVAL!

With up to 75% (literally) dropping off, LEFT 4 DEAD is the decapitated-headline act, with special un-dead guests also including:

Typing of the Dead

State of Decay

How to Survive

Painkiller

Killing Floor

Dead Block

Three Dead Zed

Deadly 30

Postal 2

Dead Hungry Dinner

Over 9000 Zombies

Culling of the Cows

Cold Fear

I am Vegend: Zombiegeddon

…and many more decomposers making an appearance throughout the weekend!

Entry to the fleshiest Feastival of the summer* will commence at 16:00 UTC 18th July and will rock on until the sun starts to set at 16:00 UTC 21st  July 2014.

*Wellies and smelly camping facilities optional, with the exception of Haiti where it is a crime to turn someone into a zombie ( Article 249 states that if someone drugs another person, buries him as though he were dead, and then digs the person up and brings him back to life, it is still considered murder)  - which we presume includes feastival appearances.

NB - Green Man Gaming take no responsibility for any life-threatening zombie encounters during our feastival. We recommend that in order to survive a zombie attack, it is imperative that feastival participants follow a few guidelines from Nathan Robert: 1) do not take shelter in a vehicle in which you do not have the keys, 2) do not leave weapons out for zombies to find, 3) do not give your only weapon to a hysterical person, 4) do not retreat to your basement without supplies, 5) do not get surrounded by zombies, especially in an elevator, and 6) do not let personal emotions and anger impede survival.
