The cracked editorial team at HarryBalls.com recently noticed the proliferation of Zombies in many downloadable video games. We find this Zombie games trend perplexing, alarming and slightly disturbing so we thought should investigate the matter. Why are zombies popping up in downloadable video games, what’s or who is behind this? Should “regular” game characters be fearful for their jobs? Do Zombies work in video games for lower salaries? WTF? (more…)
Well if you can believe Plants can battle Zombies (Plants Vs Zombies from Popcap) then we guess its not too much of a stretch to believe Bunnies can defeat Zombies in HotHead Games just released an update to their Zombie Defense classic Iphone game Bunny The Zombie Slayer.

Kelyden Interactive released their downloadable “zombies invade the 17th century Caribbean islands game” Dead Meets Lead. A zombie creating plague has exploded on islands in the Caribbean and the game player takes the role of a fearless British ship captain who must rid the islands of the zombies after wrecking his ship in a storm. Dead Meets Lead costs $19.99. Dead Meets Lead’s Game features include:
Seven weapons (three melee and four ranged), like the Mace, Blaster and Hand-cannon. Dead Meets Lead’s Captain gets more furious as he kills more zombies. The more he kills the angrier he gets. Keldyen Interactive calls this the rage system.
Sixteen maps with terrain ranging from sandy beaches, to swamps and villages, and in-land mountain ranges.
Eleven different types of enemies (including three bosses); from the common zombie and their infected cattle to mysterious mystic beings living on the islands.
40+ Dead Meets Lead Game achievements.
Custom made in-game soundtrack with enthralling tunes by composer Nikolas Sideris from North by Sound.
Keldyn Interactive released a free-to-play, single level version of their downloadable Zombie Slaughter game Dead Meets Lead called The Challenge. Keldyn Interactive describes Dead Meets Lead as a challenging zombie-slaying action game set to be released on May 3, 2011 for PC. The game centers around an 18th century character known as The Captain, who is on a mission to obliterate evil from a zombie-infested island in the Caribbean. It’s funny how much zombies are getting around in downloadable games these days. We will post an interview with four zombies later this week or next to discuss that very topic – the proliferation of zombies in video games.
Ok. We nominate Dead Meets Lead, available for pre-order now, for the Best Video Game name of the year. Sweden based Keldyn Interactive, creator of this downloadable zombie bloodbath, struck deals with three digital distribution sites to accommodate consumers who want to pre-order prior to the scheduled Q2 2011 release for $13.99. The game’s main character, “The Captain” must rid evil from a zombie invested island.
