Were you funny enough to win an iPad? Doubtful. Sadly most of you couldn’t even make me crack a smile. “Don’t feed the dead.” That’s all you got?! If you want an iPad you gotta work for it! Well, I did pick a winner. One of the only ones who made me literally laugh out loud on a few occasions. I also picked the 10 runners up who will be getting 200 dollars worth of in game Zombiewood cash. So head past the break and see if it was you!
Due to a “provocative” scene that appears on the first two pages of Saga #12, Apple has banned all digital sales on the issue for their devices. The images are not tame, but who cares? I can surf the web for porn on my iPhone, but I’m not allowed to pay for a comic book that is far less scandalous? I read the issue already and I didn’t even notice the cocks until they were pointed out. You can see the ejaculating penises below as well as a statement from BKV himself.
UPDATE: Well, that was blown out of proportion by myself, BKV, and other news sites. Apparently, Apple did not ban the book, it was ComiXology, and it was never due to the depiction of gay sex explicitly. The book will be available in the App Store app soon.

I think it’s a little cheap naming a game World Of The Living Dead, when it turns out to be not at all what you think it’s going to be. I was expecting a zombie game in the vein of the Living Dead series, but it turns out to be an in browser Dungeons and Dragons type game. I posted about this game almost a year ago, and that’s when you could sign up for the beta. So if you did and forgot, well, SURPRISE!
World Of The Living Dead has no release date but is coming to the PC, Mac, Linux, iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Smartphones, Android etc etc. Screens past the break. If you want to sign up for the beta click that source link below. READ MORE

There’s no shortage of runner games on Apple’s mobile gaming platform, but Curio stands apart from the rest by being horror themed, and having a fucking weird trailer. The game came out last December, but a brand new update that went live yesterday added more than 50% more content to the game, including new items, Easter Eggs, and a tutorial. I could keep talking about it, but I think I’d rather let Tommy Wiseau (writer, director and star of The Room) give you an idea of what you can expect from it in the trailer below.
You can grab Curio on the iTunes App store for a cool .99 cents. Head past the break for some more info about the game and what its first update has added to it. READ MORE
I don’t own any iOS devices that could play The Dark Meadow, and I’m starting to wish I did. Being developed by Phosphor Games (Chicago, hell yeah!) and running on The Unreal 3 Engine, the game so far looks awesome. Check out the teaser trailer below. You wouldn’t know it was a mobile game by the gorgeous look of the video.
The Dark Meadow will be out later this month, price point not yet announced. The game will also be in English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean and Italian. Art past the break. READ MORE
I almost glanced over The Dark Meadow as I was perusing through some video game stuffs, but I’m glad I stopped. The Dark Meadow is an iOS game that runs on the Unreal 3 game engine. “From the start, our vision for The Dark Meadow was to create a top-tier console gaming experience that works on iOS devices from 3GS to iPad 2,” said Chip Sineni, Director of Phosphor Games Studios. “From the real-time cinematics and in-depth storyline, to the gesture-based ranged and melee combat systems, our goal is to integrate the best of hardcore console gaming with the intuitive ease of the casual mobile world.”
In The Dark Meadow you awake in a hospital unsure of how exactly you got there. You meet an old man who tells you there is a witch controlling horrible minions through out the hospital will the soul purpose of killing you. The only way out? Kill the witch. More past the break. READ MORE

Just when I thought I had seen it all. Zombie ball, zombie cafe, zombie farm, zombie wranglers. Where will the zombie games end? Riverdance, that’s where. In Zombie Pinata a evil Mayan spirit is released and inhabits the bodies of the 1st thing it comes into contact with. Pinatas.
Zombie Pinata is out now, and you can get it on your apple devices from the appstore. Screens and features past the break. READ MORE
The makers of Dungeon Defenders: First Wave have just officially released gameplay footage for their next project, Afterlife: Ground Zero. Apparently, footage from the game was leaked a few days ago so its developer, Trendy Entertainment decided to jump on and give us something a little more presentable. The demo that you can check out below is playing on an iPad 2, and it looks pretty incredible.
To me, the most exciting thing about this game is it gives me the chance to ask strangers if that’s a pulsating tentacle in their pocket or if they’re just happy to see me. Get it? It’s funny because there are weird tentacles hanging off the buildings, and some of us also have tentacles in our pants. I love explaining bad jokes. No word on a release date, mainly because this game is still a long ways off, but if this tech demo represents what the unpolished version looks like I can’t wait to see the final product. Head past the break for a few more details. READ MORE
So, you’re looking around for some good zombie literature because you want to make sure you’re ready for the impending zombie apocalypse (and you know that the CDC’s plan is complete and utter rubbish). You’ve ready everything you need to ensure your survival but then it hits you, like a bucket of ice cold water, shocking you to the very core of your being.

McGhoul and Pat Kilbane, an invaluable instruction manual that teaches the reader what to do should they become one of the walking dead.

If you are a huge Back To The Future fan, you should be following Back To The Future: The Game. The 5 part series is on it’s 5th and final episode entitled Outatime.

Check out the trailer below giving you a little from all 4 episodes and the 5th which is out now on the Mac and PC, and coming soon to the Playstation Network and iPad.

I’m not really sure how I missed it, (maybe because it has the potential to be terrible) but the Scre4m game was released May 31st on the iOS devices. In Scre4m you play as the killer hunting down your unsuspecting victims.
You can download the “Lite” free version right now and play 2 levels. And I encourage you to do so, and please post in the comments below how awful the game is. I’m just assuming the game is terrible, because, well why wouldn’t I? Features and screens past the break. READ MORE
Mad TV’s PAT KILBANE along with Zentro Media have sided WITH zombies. They went ahead and created a manual FOR the living/walking dead! Finally! It’s about time those worthless sacks of dead flesh knew what they were up against. Kilbane got the idea for The Brain Eater’s Bible while shooting the 2008 film Day of the Dead in which he plays a scientist who becomes a zombie. “I loved picturing the world through cloudy, undead eyes,” Kilbane says. “With this project I can deeply explore that point of view and share it with fellow zombie enthusiasts.”
Pat has been a life long horror and sci-fi fan, which is great fuel and drive to make this book the best possible. And he really did his research. Going out at night, feeding on the living…..wait, I lost my train of thought. “The Brain Eater’s Bible app brings the zombie world to life,” Kilbane says. “The interactivity and video capabilities of the iPad are amazing. When you combine that with high-end makeup effects, it’s as close as horror fans can get to a zombie apocalypse without being eaten.” More info and screens past the break!
Army Of Darkness: Defense was recently released on those damned iOS devices, and so far the game is doing very well. It’s nearing 2000 customer ratings and still maintaining a 5 star rating. I only wish they would release it on Android, PSN, or XBLA so I could play it!
The game is out right now and you can download it for 99cents on the iPhone and iPhod Touch, or $2.99 on the iPad. But the price will soon be going up for the iPad version so get it while you can on the cheaps! READ MORE
Of course, this is announced the day AFTER I buy an Android…
Backflip Studios, in partnership with MGM Studios, is proud to announce that its highly anticipated homage to Sam Raimi’s Army Of Darkness is now live on the Apple App Store with Army of Darkness: Defense, a mobile castle defense game based on the 1992 classic film Army of Darkness.
Defense takes place during the pivotal castle scene within the movie where Ash and his allies defend the powerful Necronomicon within Lord Arthur’s fortress from the onslaught of Deadites. Gamers take on the role of the chiseled chin, one-liner-spouting Ash while summoning familiar troops, spells and weapons from the movie to help in the defense. Gameplay features include over 150 direct lines of dialogue from Bruce Campbell (!) as Ash Williams, and beautifully animated graphics using the well-known “Granny 3D” engine. In the game, Ash has the ability to call upon a wide variety of allies to help preserve the Necronomicon including swordsman, armored knights, archers and more. In addition to the originally composed sound and music, the app also features many of the famous characters from the movie including Arthur, Henry, Sheila, the Wiseman, Evil Ash, and more.
You can purchase the iPhone/iPod Touch version for $0.99 here and the iPad version for $2.99 here. I’m not sure if there’s a difference between tower and castle defense games (other than the exact location you’re stationed), but if it’s anything like Plants Vs. Zombies, I’ll be praying for a port.
