Stubbs the Zombie will rise from the grave again for a sequel

2008-01-25 00:16:00  ยท  Nick Chester

Admittedly, Wideload Games' third-person brain eating romp, Stubbs the Zombie, was a bit repetitive. Surely, it wasn't the best game released in 2005 (that title belongs to Touchdown Entertainment's Chicago Enforcer), but it's hard for me not to love a Halo engine-powered zombie videogame
While the game received a relatively warm critical reception despite its flaws, it wasn't exactly a monster (heh, get it?) at retail. Which is why word of a sequel has me surprised, and drooling like a flesh-eating school girl.
"Stubbs is near and dear to all of us," said Wideload's Matt Soell in an interview with Xbox Evolved, "and we’ve heard from lots of people who would like to see more of him. I can’t say anything specific right now, but it’s safe to say he’ll be back. They say you can’t keep a good man down, and that goes double for the ones with an insatiable hunger for brains."
It's like we won't hear or see more on Stubbs for awhile, though -- Wideload are busy prepping their next title, Hail to the Chimp, which (as far as I know) doesn't feature a single zombie. Zombie animals would have been an 11 out of 10, easy.
