Zombie Playground by Massive Black.
Some of you may recognize the familiar image of the kid’s on the jungle gym, fighting off hoards of suspiciously adorable zombies. The image was passed around the internet labeled as “Left 4 Dead 4 Kids” and all the while, was a legitimate game being developed by Massive Black.
Alas, the curtains have been drawn and “Zombie Playground” has been revealed to be a legitimate project by Jason Chan and the expertly talented team at Massive Black.
Even better news, is Zombie Playground now has a Kickstarter, one which will run between May 22nd until June 26th.With the amount of money raised contributing to the robustness of the game itself. As usual, there are various perks to donating to the cause, plus the additional development bumps the team promise to deliver upon if certain milestones of funding are reached.
The team has a heck of a super-force of talent in the industry working on the game itself, including Jason Chan (Concept Artist on Dragon Age: Origins, Bioshock 2 and Mass Effect 3), Aesop Rock (Lyrical Bamf, Kickstarter Movie), Shawn Lee (Bully Soundtrack, Veteran Musician) and Chris Hatala (LOTR: Two Towers, LOTR: Return of the King, I-Robot, Various Games).
“In Zombie Playground you take on the role of a kid during a zombie apocalypse as seen through his or her imagination. Your school is overrun by the undead, and it’s up to you and your friends to do whatever it takes to survive!”
All the info you could possibly need can be found either on the official website or the Kickstarter, including a great little video to wrap all the info up into a nice square box with moving pictures.
So, spread the word! re-blog, re-tweet, re-whatever and why not chip-in a few bucks and make a really cool looking, sounding, conceptualized game come into being with your help!
