While we were at E3 this year I got a chance to check out a lot of titles from smaller developers. Of those smaller developers, many of them were from the EU, or more specifically, the Eastern part of the EU. Countries like Poland and Russia have been taking the gaming world by storm, cranking out title after title and crossing all of the genres, in many cases putting out games which are every bit as good as some of the “Triple A” titles we get from the big developers and publishers here in the States.
One of those developers is Mad Finger, who not only have a cool name but also make a cool game called Dead Trigger 2 which pits you against hordes of zombies. I have 5 good reasons why kicking zombie ass in Dead Trigger 2 is an awesome thing to do.
1) 24 meets zombies
First off, this is a zombie killing game which starts 2 years after the zombie apocalypse kicks off and seemingly works on a realistic timeline. According to Mad Finger:
On the day of release, we will unveil a world that has battled the ravages of a zombie plague for the past two years. The first players of Dead Trigger 2 will enter into the conflict at this precise moment, while additional players will essentially be stepping aboard a moving train. New players, who download the game a year from now, will find themselves joining in at the third year of the apocalypse
So it’s like the zombie apocalypse version of the TV show 24? HOTNESS! I just hope I don’t come across Jack Bauer as a zombie. That would end very badly for me I think. They also say that the game updates will shift the action to varying parts of the world, the locations of which will depend largely on player interaction.
And if that weren’t enough for you…
