SPOnG learned recently that a considerable percentage of the population thinks about the possibility of a zombie invasion for a considerable percentage of each day. This might come as surprising news to you, though, given that seemingly everyone who isn’t us thinks about a plague of the undead all day long, probably not.
However, what should come as great news is the confirmation that George A Romero’s Living Dead series is set for a major videogame rebirth.
Hip Interactive Corp, has signed an exclusive deal with Romero’s Living Dead Productions (LDP) to produce titles based in a unique zombie universe created specifically for videogames, on the back of news that a new movie, Land of the Dead, has gone into production.
Titles will be offered for PC, Xbox and PlayStation 2 with next-generation incarnations to follow.
Romero explained: “I am very excited to start working in the medium and look forward to the association with Hip. I thank Living Dead Productions for making it all happen.”
So if you need to think about zombie invasions all day to merely keep your sanity - and you're a gamer - this will surely be the best news of the year. As further information breaks on all this, we’ll let you know.
