Zombies is a video game adaptation of the popular tile-based board game by Twilight Creations, publisher of the original game. The game was initially to be developed by Big Rooster for PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade and Windows PCs through Steam.[1][2], with possible versions for the Wii and the Nintendo DS may also be released in future.[2] However, only Xbox Live Arcade and Windows Phone 7 versions have been confirmed.[3]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

In Zombies, players race around the board trying to find a way to escape the ever-growing zombie horde. The game is said to be simple to play and extremely addictive. Big Rooster has announced that there will be a tile based board and many expansions in the works to keep the game fresh and new each time the user plays the game.

Future[edit | edit source]

According to videogame news site Joystiq, Twilight Creations is now looking for another company to develop the game, but "cannot disclose the status of [former developer] Big Rooster."[4]

The game is now progressing again as Xbox Live Arcade and Windows Phone 7 versions, this time developed by Babaroga (game company).[5]
