Techland's (Dead Island, Call of Juarez) Dying Light is an open world zombie game all about freedom in moving around the environment to escape your imminent doom at the bloody hands of the infected. If that kind of huge, open world ready for exploration seems like a perfect fit for the Oculus Rift, that's probably because it is.Read More
But probably a lot more indicative of actual gameplay.
The trailer for Dead Island may very well be the greatest video game trailer of all time, but the game was pretty familiar zombie-killing ground to cover. Goat Simulator, on the other hand, is a game that is completely bonkers and weird, so its Dead Island parody trailer is probably a pretty accurate representation of the game.Read More
Most video game trailers would look silly recreated in real life, but this is a notable exception.
The Dead Island trailer was pretty much the best video game trailer ever made, because it wasn't so much a trailer as it was a very short, computer generated zombie movie that was better than a lot of full-length zombie movies. Watch Machinima's amazing live action version, but be prepared to feel things, unless you are dead inside. Or a zombie.Read More

Last week, a fairly impressive trailer for zombie game Dead Island pretty much punched our emotions in the face twice; once because it was ridiculously sad and very well made, and twice because the game is going to be a sandbox, zombie apocalypse, first-person shooter with four player drop-in co-op, which most likely means the emotional investment displayed in the trailer won't make effectively translate to the game. After all, it's pretty difficult to be emotionally invested when your buddies are teabagging zombie corpses in drop-in co-op.
Well, it only took a handful of days before someone--specifically Vareide Productions--recreated the trailer in Minecraft. Yes, it's pretty hilarious.Read More
This is a trailer for upcoming zombie game Dead Island, developed by Techland and published by Deep Silver, slated to hit the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC sometime this year. My first response to this trailer was "...what?" Then when I found out this game is going to be a zombie-based first-person shooter, my response changed to "...why." Note the deliberate period. Then I found out that the game is a sandbox zombie-based first-person shooter with four player drop in cooperative play that is heavily influenced by George A. Romero movies, and my response changed to "...well, at least this trailer happened." The developers claim that we shouldn't worry, and the game will be different from how the description makes it seem like it is going to end up. The trailer suggests a kind of Heavy Rain game with a zombie twist, but it'll probably prove difficult to provide an emotional story when three other buds drop into co-op. My guess is that this trailer is more of a concept than anything that has to do with the game, other than the zombies. Hopefully I'm wrong about that. Head on past the break to be traumatized with a larger version of the trailer.
