Chunsoft is making it’s grand return to game publishing (didn’t you miss them?) with Love Zombie; a comedy horror game for the DS. You’ll take control of a legion of undead villagers, and lead them from a farm to a nearby town to attack the “bad humans” and “reclaim something” that the zombies had stolen from them. Their humanity, perhaps? Is that too obvious?
The game sounds a little like Pikmin, but with brain dead purple zombies instead of brain dead purple carrot people. You can even grow stuff for your zombies (like pudding and and clothing) from seeds on the local farm. As for enemies, there’s not a Spotty Bulborb in sight, but there’s plenty of scientists, Frankenstein’s Monsters, sexy ladies, and gun toting thugs to kill in their place. This game doesn’t make any sense, and it doesn’t sound like it’s trying to.
People may be sick of zombies, but personally, I can’t get enough. Zombies and videogames are like Superheroes and comic books. They just fit together. Hopefully some Western publisher will agree with me on this, and pick up Love Zombie for a U.S. release.
