Close those curious eyes and imagine this: You’re a stylish red-headed female rock-star perfectionist. During the performance of your all-female band’s triple platinum hit single “Like a Brick to the Groin,” groups of zombies shuffle in from the entrances. You don’t panic, BECAUSE YOU’RE A FREAKIN’ ROCK STAR, and start impulsively smashing in some zombie craniums with your electric guitar. Welcome to Rock Zombie, coming soon for the Nintendo Wii U.
Brought to us by a single gentleman at Quaternion Studio and the team at EnjoyUp Games, this combination of classic hyperbolic arcade-style beat-downs and modern 3D graphics probably exists for one reason – to answer the question: “What would happen if zombies were foolish enough to invade the concert of a female rock band?” Can you say “pure zombie devastation”?
Here is information about the game as provided by Quaternion Studio:
✭ 20 levels filled with addictive action where you will fight all kinds of enemies, ride motorbikes, drive cars and much more.
✭ A terrifying story told through 300 comic strips inserted between the action sections of the game.
✭ Three awesome characters to choose from: Zoe, Sasha, and Crystal.
✭ A wide range of weapons, costumes and concept art, and loads of unlockable collectible material at the Zombie Museum.
✭ An OST that combines Hard Rock, Nu Metal and Alt Rock that will immerse you into a really dark and rainy urban atmosphere.
With this and Ray’s the Dead, which allows us to control zombies rather than pummel them purposeless, our choices for indie developed zombie shenanigans are becoming a lot more varied for console gamers. Whether I’m neutralizing zombies or searching for answers as one, I plan on rocking out with my stockings out (as the censored saying goes).
