The best selling book by The New York Times Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is soon to be released on the iPhone and iPod Touch. Freeverse [news.freeverse.com] announced yesterday they have been asked to produce the game. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, basically follows the story of Elizabeth Darcy and her love life, mixed in with gory battles with zombies during the Regency period.
The game features 2.5D graphics with romance scenes and zombie slaying, great for any zombie fanatic. It also features the chance to compete online via the support of the popular social network plus+. There is no mention yet on Freeverse’s website whether the game will have any in-app purchases or whether it will be a fully paid game.
I’m not sure how popular this game may become, it seems at the moment there are a huge amount of zombie killing and slaying games available. I think that it is quite possible many gamers have had all they can take when it comes to fighting zombies and body parts flying around their screen. Although it does have a slightly different take on the actual story compared to some but at the end of the day it is just another zombie game.
The game will be released in April. Freeverse also said that the game annoucement comes at the same time that the publishers have released a prequel to the book, the new title is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls! So who knows Freeverse may even grace us with a second zombie playing game. What fun!
What do you think, have we had our fair share of zombie slaying games?
