The Dead Talk: Fort Zombie Interview

By Kieron Gillen on September 22nd, 2009.

When we heard news that Sword of the Stars’ maker Kerberos were, as part of the route to sci-fi RPG Northstar, making a town-based zombie-defence game by the name of Fort Zombie, our response was immediate. To do lots of stuff. And part of that stuff was dropping them a mail, and asking if they were up for a chat about their imminent undead-escapades. And lo! the Lead Designer Martin Cirulis was.

The first opus from Kerberos Productions, risen out of the ashes of Barking Dog – responsible for Homeworld: Cataclysm and eventually folded into Rockstar Vancouuver – it’s picked up the sort of deeply passionate following you so often get with deep and complex space-games. On the eve of second expansion A Murder Of Crow’s release, we had a chat with CEO and Lead Designer Martin Cirulis about Kerberos’ past, present and future – including some first details on their next two games, RPG Northstar and the splendidly-named Fort Zombie…
