- Nihilistic Designer John Slavin
has announced news that Zombie Apocalypse is hitting PSN today, as follows:
My name is John Slavin, one of Nihilistic
's game designers on Zombie Apocalypse, the downloadable title from Konami coming to the PlayStation Network next month.
I wanted to drop in and show some Zombie love to the PlayStation community and give you some previews to what you can expect to see!
So what is Zombie Apocalypse about?
Zombie Apocalypse is pure and gory wish fulfillment. We wanted to strip off the woes of increasingly complex modern mega-games, and retreat back into the world of dank arcades and late-night movie rentals that was our childhood in the 80's and 90's.
We knew multiplayer was a key feature in a game of this type, so we pushed hard to get four-player online co-op integrated from the start. With core values in place, we set out to fill that savage coffer with all the classic zombie lore we loved.
This was not a game in search of a hook, beyond perhaps one to skewer a zombie on. Our goal was to produce a pure arcade shooter, rooted in dual-stick classics such as Robotron: 2084
