Undeathcon: Atom Zombie Smasher

Flotilla and Gravity Bone clever-brain Brendon Chung’s taken the lid off Blendo Games’ latest project – and it’s a zombie game. Wait, wait, wait though: Atom Zombie Smasher is marching its horde somewhere enticingly different to the brain-splatting norm. This isn’t about skulking through the streets with a shotgun. This is a strategy game in which you genuinely have the tools to defeat the apocalypse. To put it the other way: nuke the entire site from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

Defcon with zombies, or X-COM once the monsters have fully invaded? Elements of both, I hope. Zombie Atom Smasher is a bird’s eye view of the end of the world, bringing in scorched-earth tactics to keep the infini-horde in check.

For once, you’re not the survivors: you’re the guys that the survivors hope and pray are coming for them, able to employ vast military might to save the last vestiges of human life. The scale is such that deadheads aren’t depicted as anything more than a swarm of dots trooping around grid-perspective city blocks: this is the Football Manager of zombie games.

Hell, let’s just let the trailer speak for itself:

Three-player co-op too, eh? That’ll do. I have a very good feeling about this. (Checks FAQ). No release date yet. Bah! We’ll just have to make do with this teasing, pony-based backstory for now.
