Dead Island

Postby Archrival » Thu Feb 17, 2011 1:34 pm

Seems somone has taken L4D and stuck it on a nice tropical island with what seemed like a theme park as well, the graphics seem awesome plus the trailer seems to be done entirely in game graphics.

Interesting, I was just about to start a topic myself... the announcement trailer is awesome!

It being a zombie game, puts it pretty dominant on my radar... can never have enough zombie games! The graphics kinda remind me of Brink

This project is affiliated with George Romero. I remember the characters landing on an island at the end of Day of the Dead. I wonder if this might be related?

I doubt that, if you look at the trailer I posted, you can see that this will all probably happen during a summer vacation.
But is Romero really involved? Damn, that nudged this game up a few places on my watchlist

Melee is good. I have fun mowing down hordes in L4D2 with a chainsaw.

Plus there are classes apparently but I'm thinking it'll be preset characters so no customization which is the only downside to it.

Classes? That's cool.
I like to customise though :l

But can't be too picky. There's finally a zombie rpg.

Eh, that didn't actually look all that impressive. L4D on a sedative, with a dash of Dead Rising. Graphics reminded me of Far Cry 2.
Not so sure about it anymore

More like download, yarr!

But perhaps they'll change a few things here and there that'll make me more interested
