Watch Now: 12-Minute Gameplay Demo For New First-Person Zombie Game ‘Dying Light’

Dying Light Image
An almost 12-minute gameplay demo for the upcoming first-person zombie game Dying Light has arrived online, giving us our first peek at the game in action.

Many are comparing the game to Dead Island—and rightfully so, as it is developed by the maker of both Dead Island games, Techland—and Mirror’s Edge. And as you’ll see, it certainly has a healthy dose of both of those games in its makeup.

You can check out the new Dying Light gameplay demo below now.

The game is scheduled to release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, and the demo below looks to be running on one of the more powerful systems.

Dying Light is looking fairly intense, and it’s sure to be popular with a lot of people. That said, I lost chunks of interest as the video progressed starting at the 6:00 point simply because games that need to create these wacky new types of zombies in order to be fresh and new—such as Dead Island‘s inexplicable collection of shark-jumping pro wrestler/bodybuilder zombies who all escaped from an insane asylum, for example—do serious damage to my interest.

Whatever happened to good old fashioned zombies true to George A. Romero’s heart? Isn’t most of the human race turning into walking corpses who, while slow-moving, want to devour your flesh already about as scary as things can get? Trying to add on to that often only leads to silly and ridiculous zombies. End rant.

What do you think? Will you play Dying Light when it’s released?

'Dead Rising 3's' Trailer Is Filled With Zombies, Profanity, And Gadgets

Longtime fans of Dead Rising have been less than impressed by part three thus far, to put it mildly. Unfortunately, the just released cinematic, CGI trailer is not going to help its case all that much.
Among other things, it remains virtually devoid of any color or personality; Dead Rising continues to largely resemble all the other zombie murder simulators out there, which is the primary issue.
Much of the whimsy is also still absent, replaced with a whole lot of unnecessary swearing. And Frank West is still nowhere to be found. Sorry folks, but at this point, it's just not happening:
Though on the plus side, the whole "make your weapon" deal, which was introduced in part 2, likes just as fun as ever. And the very end of the clip does honestly feel like legit Dead Rising. It's unfortunate that everything else, on the other hand, simply… does not.
Thus the hope for Dead Rising 3: Off The Record, starring Frank West, for the PlayStation 4, remains as strong as ever.


This Rick Grimes exclusive features the small-town sheriff’s deputy turned-hero and leader of the survivors in his Season 3 Prison attire. Figure includes 14 points of articulation, interchangeable hands, removable revolver, rifle with strap, and an animal control stick (for walker catching) 

This exclusive figure is available at Walgreens, Hastings Entertainment, and Grosnor Distribution.

Zombucks: Official Currency of the Zombie Apocalypse

Fellow horror fans, we're going to assume you've already picked up a few handy survival skills in the likely event of a zombie uprising (and if not, you can find all kinds of examples within our pages). Aim for the head, stay on the move, trust no one... you know the drill by now. But have you decided what you're going to use for trade once your paper money and debit cards become worthless junk?     

The folks at Provident Metals have a possible solution in the form of “Zombucks,” a recently-launched series of copper and silver coins with an undead twist. "Walker," the first in the series, is a riff on the classic “Walking Liberty” coin of the early 20th century.  

The zombified version, bearing the denomination “Z50” (fifty zombie dollars), shows living-dead Liberty with an axe, shambling in front of an ominous mushroom cloud. The flipside features the familiar biohazard logo.     

Provident will release ten designs in all, with a new design revealed every three months on their website. (Thanks to Geek Alerts for the heads-up on this item.)

Voodoo Zombies? YAY!

Press Release
Asylum Press announces the release of a new horror comic entitled Undead Evil, a digital first comic book.
Undead Evil is the tale of Alfred Carter and his attempt to save his estranged family from a centuries old Voodoo curse.  Written by Frank Forte (Heavy Metal, The Vampire Verses, Asylum of Horrors) and illustrated by Nenad Gucunja (Satan’s Circus of Hell, Girls and Corpses, Warlash) with a painted cover by Ben Olson (Area 51:Blacksite, Drakan 1 & 2, The Suffering)
Undead Evil takes place in New Orleans in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. A centuries old family curse is reignited by an undead Voodoo priest and paranormal researcher Alfred Carter begins to have disturbing visions of the past, present and future. When Alfred is summoned by the ghost of his ancestor, he must travel to The Big Easy to cleanse his bloodline. What he finds are untold family secrets and a descent into madness. This twisted tale can be described as H.P. Lovecraft meets Angel Heart.  Issue #1 features a Nenad Guncunja sketchbook and Ben Olson cover art process section.
“I’m excited to finally release the first issue of this mini series,“ explains creator Frank Forte, “Nenad Gucunja is an incredibly unique and talented artist. He was the prefect choice to illustrate such a horrific tale.  His illustrations will bring a chill up your spine.”
Undead Evil #1 is available on Comixology, ComicsPlus, Graphicly, My Digital Comics, DriveThruComics, AVE Comics and can be found on on iPad, iPhone, Kindle, Android devices, Mac, and PC.

Excuse me, Miss...Miss...Zombie?

Long time cult favorite director Sabu may have taken a turn towards the mainstream with his more recent output but it would appear that he's getting back to his playfully inventive and - it should be said - somewhat odd roots with his new effort, Miss Zombie.

Komatsu Ayaka stars as the titular undead woman, a zombie delivered to a man's house in a cage with a gun and a sign saying not to feed her meat. She seems harmless enough so they keep her as a domestic servant.

This one appears to be a rousing return to form for Sabu, an impression backed up by the fact the film has already been confirmed to appear in the L'Etrange Festival in France and Korea's Busan International Film Festival. Take a look at the trailer below.

George Romero offers update about his Marvel zombie comic project

It’s been about seven months since Marvel teased George A. Romero’s not-so-secret comic series for “fall 2013,” but since then there’s been no more information about the project. However, it is coming, the Godfather of Zombies assures — it’ll just be a little later than expected.
“They were going to originally launch it in October, but I understand that they’re pushing it back,” Romero tells Daily Dead. “I don’t know why, but maybe they don’t want to bridge it over Christmas.”
When the legendary filmmaker revealed the Marvel project in October 2012, he would only say that “it won’t involve any of their on-going characters, there will be no superheroes. But it will involve zombies!” But now he offers a sense of its size, saying he’s written enough material for 15 issues.
“It’s 15 books, so it’s long,” he says. “It’s the equivalent of two and a half screenplays. It’s a novel basically and, in fact, I might novelize it.”
The 73-year-old Romero, whose 1968 film Night of the Living Dead effectively created the zombie subgenre, is no stranger to comic books: He wrote the 2004-2005 DC Comics miniseries Toe Tags, based on an unused move script.

'Huling Henya': Uneven Zombie Film Says Critic

MIXED BAG. But Rufa Mae can carry a movie. Photo courtesy of Viva EntertainmentMIXED BAG. But Rufa Mae can carry a movie. Photo courtesy of Viva Entertainment
MANILA, Philippines - Though its poster promises a zombie movie, "Ang Huling Henya" isn’t one.
It has zombies, sure. But it’s something else. I’m not sure what kind of movie it is.
I think the bigger problem it suffers from is that it isn’t sure what kind of movie it is either.
The film opens with a shootout, some talk of an evil group called The Agency (but it isn’t exactly clear what they are and how they work), and those trying to stop them, among them, Rufa Mae Quinto’s lead agent.
It dips into cop movie cliche by portraying her as a loose cannon, but it drops that.
In the opening shootout, she gets her partner killed out of negligence, and it is implied that she has unresolved issues about her parents’ deaths at the hands of The Agency.
But throughout the film we never get the feeling that these things are actually bothering her, that anything actually drives her.
It is most likely because of the film’s uneven tone. I know that it isn’t impossible to mix genres and to inject strong humor in even the most serious of works.
But the problem is the humor that is used in the film, while effective in certain scenes if taken on their own, reduces the gravity and importance of the rest of the film.
So much time was spent on jokes and gags that pulled you out of any reality the film was trying to create.
The world building was another problem. I appreciate efforts at sci-fi or trying to present a world that is similar to but markedly different from our own.
Here we’ve got The Agency and scientists who seem to be at war, but how they fit into a larger world isn’t shown.
We’ve got some cop movie and spy flick elements, but these don’t come together either.
There’s some attempted family drama. With the parents having been killed, Ruffa Mae’s character has issues with her brother, who feels left behind.
She has been trying to catch the killers and protect scientists. The brother, meanwhile, refuses to be educated and insists on working at a bar.
Mixed with this are a flurry of supporting characters and villains, each painted in broad strokes but most if not all of them being forgettable.
Throwing in lots of elements is a good approach, but only if you can get the elements to go together.
I think that Rufa Mae Quinto is a very funny comedian. She proves so here, both on her own and when she is bouncing off others like Candy Pangilinan.
But then the humor didn’t go well with the overarching issues of murdered parents and the threat of a zombie outbreak.
Another problem is that while there are scenes and moments that are visually striking, a lot of the directing seemed amateurish.
The action scenes were sloppy, and it was clear that the film tried to overcompensate for lack of impact with slow-mo shots and cut-aways.
Some of the blocking wasn’t much better. Possibly more annoying was the attempt at artsiness by playing a haunting musical theme while going into slow motion, which happened way more times than I could count.
The script too was a problem. The story overall barely hung together, and events happened without any clear reason to go from one scene to the next.
Within scenes, dialogue was bad. A lot of it was expository. You had characters waiting for each other to finish and then continuing the conversation, rather than it sounding like just two people talking.
I guess that’s a problem of both writing and directing. It was also surprising that characters would be in the middle of conversations and then change their minds with little to no persuasion.
I figure that was a misinterpretation of the script.
It’s disappointing because director Marlon Rivera is coming off of the brilliant "Ang Babae sa Septic Tank" and Quinto can carry a movie.
Rather than give us something new and interesting, we get lots of old elements that seem too familiar.
We’re ostensibly offered a zombie movie, but it feels like the Zs were thrown in as an afterthought and aren’t even essential to the film.
There are scenes that take too long, dialogue that should have been cut out, and a lot of work that should have been done to make the story tighter.
I wanted to see this movie, and I wanted to like it. I tried to buy a ticket at an early screening, but I was turned away.
They weren’t going to run the film because I was the only person who was buying a ticket.
The girl at the ticket counter said, “Sir, can you just watch another movie?”
I should have.

In The Dead of Night, Eric Red is Looking for Zombies

Filmmaker Eric Red (writer of The Hitcher, Near Dark, director of Body Parts, Bad Moon, 100 Feet) is back looking to flex his fright muscles in the director's chair for an adaptation of Jonathan Maberry's zombie opus The Dead of Night.
Red is looking to adapt the novel for the screen and is currently seeking funding.
A prison doctor injects a condemned serial killer with a formula designed to keep his consciousness awake while his body rots in the grave. But all drugs have unforeseen side effects. Before he could be buried, the killer wakes up. Hungry. Infected. Contagious. 
Small town cop Dez Fox and her partner JT are caught in a wave of murder as everyone they know and love die, only to rise again as the ravenous living dead. If Dez and JT can’t contain the plague inside the town limits, the infection will spread beyond all control. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang... but a bite.


Former Zynga Developers Raise World Zombination, A Horde-Based RTS, From The Dead

Zombies aren't dead yet.

Proletariat Inc. fully believes in this premise – metaphorically, that is – and is proving it with its first major game, a faction-based RTS called World Zombination, coming to iOS, Android, PC and Mac in early 2014.

"Zombie games have become their own genre and setting," Proletariat CEO Seth Sivak tells Joystiq. "They are universal, on par with 'fantasy' or 'sci-fi,' and they give our audience a wide range of tropes that they understand and enjoy. As designers, this is a great starting point for us. I do not think zombies are going anywhere, especially if you look at how they are handled in the film/TV industry."

World Zombination has players embody the zombie hordes or groups of survivors, and has an online guild system that allows people to team up and attack cities, or fight each other. Armies can level up their machinery, while zombie factions can mutate at opportune moments and humans can ambush zombies based on the predictable nature of the undead. 

When Zynga closed its Boston studio, Sivak and four former developers there ditched the mainstream game to start Proletariat Inc. The founders have experience in non-ville games, too, having worked on titles such as Rock Band, Lord of the Rings Online and Resistance: Fall of Man.

"We came to Zynga through an acquisition," Sivak says. "As a remote studio, we avoided many of the culture problems that plagued Zynga. The team ended up learning both good lessons and poisonous practices. For good lessons, we were able to grow our understanding of content releases and running a game as a service .... We also learned that you cannot make a game from metrics alone; it has to have a soul. Data can help make a good game better but you cannot optimize a bad game to be a hit. The game needs to have passion and real design involved, both of which are impossible to measure."

                                                    PRESS RELEASE:

Proletariat Inc. Announces First Major Game Release: World Zombination
Cambridge, MA---August 13, 2013---Proletariat Inc., the new game studio formed by industry veterans from Harmonix, Insomniac, Turbine, 38 Studios, and Zynga Boston have officially announced World Zombination: a faction-based combat strategy game coming to Tablet, Mobile and PC in 2014.
In World Zombination, players choose between The Infected and The Survivors and fight with (and against!) their friends to control cities around the world. 
Proletariat Design Director Jesse Kurlancheek says, "The most fun and memorable moments in games come when you're playing with your friends, whether it's team death-match in an FPS, raiding in MMOs, or just sitting around playing cards. We're hoping to provide those experiences, distilled down, with World Zombination."
The game features a constantly changing world map that allows guilds and players to team up and work together to control the world in real-time and on a massive scale.
Proletariat's CEO, Seth Sivak , adds, "We are focused on bringing cutting-edge multiplayer games to tablets. This is the sort of game we love to play. With World Zombination, we've come up with fun and unique gameplay that real-time strategy gamers will find refreshing."
With compelling and asymmetrical moment-to-moment gameplay, the choice of faction gives a totally different experience and is a new take on real-time strategy combat.
"We are creating a world that is both beautiful and utterly devastated," says CTO Dan Ogles. "Quality keeps going up on tablets and we're pushing ourselves from both a technical and a design perspective to take advantage of what these devices can do."
In World Zombination, The Infected players control a horde of hundreds of zombies while The Survivors control a band of heroes trying to hold off the onslaught.
