Newcomers to Destructoid won't remember William Haley, but he was an editor for the site way back in the prehistoric age of 2007. In fact, he is the reason I started writing for this site, since it was an article he wrote for GamesTM magazine that made me aware of this wonderful blog and inspired me to ask for a job. It's ironic, because Haley always thought I was a dickhead, and he was probably right.
Anyway, William Haley and developer Panda Cake have capitalized on the zombie game craze by adding their own, rather unique take on things. Your Pet Zombie is a virtual pet where players must nurture, love and feed their very own undead companion. Game Informer describes it as "Tamagotchi meets 28 Days Later."
Players will need to feed their zombie the brains of panic-stricken civilians, but have to make sure he's not overfed or he'll get fat. The zombie can pull off kill combos, complete challenges and enjoy a number of upgrades, including a zombie girlfriend. For a mere $0.99, it looks like a really fun little game. I'd say a buck is worth supporting a former comrade, wouldn't you?
Hit the jump for full information and make sure to wish William the best of luck in his new game.
