Zombify your pals with George A. Romero's App of the Dead

2:40 PM on 05.13.2010 // Nick Chester

Ever been in the middle of a conversation with someone and find yourself zoning out, thinking "I wonder what this person would look like if they were the walking dead?"

That's where George A. Romero's App of the Dead for iPhone and iPod Touch comes in. The father of the modern zombie has teamed up with the developer Additive Interactive to make your friend- and family-zombifying dreams a reality.

App of the Dead will allow you to turn human faces from your own images into terrifying visages of the undead, by allowing you to add wounds and other ghoulish facial-deformities. You can even get your zombie "pew pew pew" on, as the app will allow you to "shoot" at your created zombies, complete with a blood-splatter effect. Zombies can be saved and then uploaded to Facebook or even emailed to your friends.

App of the Dead is coming soon to the App Store, so board up your windows, doors, and keep your eyes peeled. Tomorrow we'll have an exclusive chat with Romero himself, where we talk about everything from App of the Dead to his new film, Survival of the Dead. Stay tuned.
