There always seems to be *DEAD* trends that run through game development *DEAD DEAD*, like the current obsession the industry has with Zombies and the word Dead *DEAD DEAD DEAD* in a title. The latest game to combine Zombies and the word Dead is Dead Block, a download only game coming to XBLA, PSN and PC. I myself am attempting to cash in on this current trend by throwing a few extra deads into the start of my news item - I hope no one noticed.
Click Read More for an announcement trailer and some initial news about the co-op Dead Block plans to offer.
Dead Block will be Candygun Games debut game and is a arcade shooter set during the 1950s (but with some characters who feel a little 70s for my liking). Not much is known yet, but there are 10 single player levels as well as an additional 8 co-op specific levels. The co-op will be local splitscreen only for up to 4 players, but this may well change whilst the game is in development. The gameplay appears to be a cartoonish take on Call of Duty's successful Zombie Mode.
Some gamers, myself included, are about full to the brim with undead flesh, but you can decide whether Dead Block appeals to you via this trailer.
