Dead Island ... Barvo!
(Warning ... if you are over Zombies or are a bit squeamish .. don't watch this video ;))

YouTube - Dead Island Trailer

This is one the the best done video game trailers I have ever seen. Very powerful imagery.

I'm so stoked it's getting released. I spoke to one of the devs about a year ago and he said it was pretty much abandoned as they were really just experimenting with a lot of ideas and it wasn't functioning well as a game. Looking forward to seeing what they've done with it :)

also, full speed chronological order if you're interested:

I liked the trailer as well -- it will be interesting to see how the actual game plays vs. the feeling of the preview. For example, the start screen preview of the original Dead Space gives a pretty decent feel for the horror of the game ... but if then you'd played the game and it was a bit more like Red Dwarf vs. Zombies, it would have been disappointing.

Another Zombie game just does not do it for me - Find it hard to believe the world is still so mad for bashing zombies.

You can bash too many Zombies? :confused:

Well at least they have not tweened them and made them sparkle! ;)

Nice find, i never heard of this game before i am realy looking forward to it.
Personally i never can't get enough of zombie movies or games, i say keep em comming!

If you are tired of zombies well then your shit out of luck because i also found this they are making a zombie adventure game based on the comic "the walking dead"

Very interesting video that :) Although there have been more zombie games then i can count over the past couple of years i dont think there can ever be enough zombies to kill so i will keep an eye on this one :)

Zombies. What's with Zombies. I don't like Zombie games at all. No point to them. Run around hit, cutting, blowing up, shooting. Like we don't have enough games to cover this already. A definate not one for me.

I admit to playing Red Dead Redemption - Undead Nightmare but only cause I loved Red Dead Redemption and wanted to prolong the experience more.

Just yesterday we brought you the overnight internet sensation that was the Dead Island trailer. In that piece, we reported on the rumor that Techland (the zombie horror game’s developer) was shopping the movie rights to the property. It looks like the buzz over the trailer was enough incentive as early reports indicate that producer Sean Daniel has acquired those rights.
