Fancy A Date?
Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Digital Reality
Digital Reality has sent word that Dead Block, Candygun Games’ upcoming ‘zombie defense game,’ will be going for the head next month when it launches for the 360 and PS3. Set to release on Live Arcade on July 6 and PS Network on July 20, the undead action is said to be a “campy and humor-filled title that mixes zombie killing with tactical defense strategies.” Players are taken back to the 1950s shortly after a zombie apocalypse as one of three survivors: Boy Scout Mike Bacon, construction worker Jack Foster, and meter maid Foxy Jones. Each must fortify an area against waves of zombie hordes, utilizing special attacks as well as unlockable weapons and traps. Drop-in/drop-out play will also be supported so that up to four players can co-op the undead to redeath.
For a second there, I thought this might be a Crimson Skies racing spin-off. Still, a combat racer using propeller planes and power-ups—or even better, a possible combination of Crimson Skies and Blur? Yeah, I can get behind that. Developer Digital Reality is looking to get gamers in the air and pounding out the rounds with SkyDrift when it launches for the 360, PC, and PS3 later this year. The download-only release will include six different power-ups, eight aircraft, leaderboard support, online multiplayer for eight players, and several single-player modes, including Survival and SpeedRace.
