Zombies vs. Sheep

Hey everyone,

I'm Martin from studio radiolaris and I'ld like to announce our new game: "Zombies vs. Sheep". Its a very unique & ironic & frenetic shooter.

Watch the Zombies vs. Sheep teaser trailer!

It's already close to the finishing line. We're polishing and balancing in the moment. I'll post more details soon.

One more thing: Anyone interested in beta-testing the game? We have 15 places left. PM me your favorite zombie movie quote and if you're fast enough you're in.

thanks for the help!

its great that so many people are interested in testing our game. we'll start next week.

actually our game is closer to the movies el mariachi and desperado than to any zombie movie. wait ... there's "from dusk till dawn" ...

anyway. here are the quotes:

"You've got red on you..." - Shaun of the Dead (came twice)

"As Mr. Sloan always says, there is no "I" in team, but there is an "I" in pie. And there's an "I" in meat pie. Anagram of meat is team... I don't know what he's talking about." Shaun of the Dead. (is the whole thing a quote? don't know)

Shaun: If you get cornered...
[hits himself on head with cricket bat]
Shaun: ...bash 'em in the head, that seems to work. Ow. - Shaun of the Dead

"Did you see that? She took a chunk of it right out of me!" - Resident Evil

"Can They Be Stopped?" - Evil Dead (1981)

"No, no. No, see, this is a really shit idea. You know why? Because it's really obviously a shit idea." -28 days later

"Mum, have you been bitten?" - Shaun of the Dead

"Time is short. So you gotta ask yourself: Are you a fighter, Fish Queen, or are you zombie food " - (no movie stated)

"Kissing. I was kissing her. Are you stoned?" from 28 Days Later

"This is my boomstick!" - Army of Darkness

"Send more Cops!" - Return of the Living Dead



.......... more soon!

The title is suprisingly reminiscent of the superhit, Plants vs. Zombies by Popcapgames.

most definitely. but "Zombies vs. Sheep" is no tower defense game. it's a sheep defense game.

plus, there are myriads of vs-style titles out there. see for example the hilarious upcoming movie Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus. i think most movies, games, whatever with "vs" in their name explicitly use this word to mark themselves as trash. it's trash appeal we wanted for this game, too.

ZvS is the fourth title we thought out for this game and it will be the one we'll publish it under. previously it was called "El Macabre", "Tap2Shoot" and "Zombie Funfair". i personally still like "El Macabre" most, but have to admit that there might be no market for a game with such an unwieldy name.
