What if the creation of rock and roll caused the dead to awaken from their graves and wreak havoc upon western civilization? Digital Reality’s newly-announced downloadable Dead Block provides an answer.
Dead Block is a third-person zombie defense game, decorated in a “spooky, cartoony visual style inspired by classic zombie movies,” and runs on Epic’s Unreal Engine 3. It centers around the three remaining survivors of a zombie invasion induced by rock and roll. They are: construction worker Jack Foster, traffic warden Foxy Jones, and hungry boy scout Mike Bacon.
The three will fight through ten single-player stages, hiding in “various shelters around town,” using blockades, traps, and weapons to fight the zombies. Up to four players in split-screen multiplayer can take on eight additional levels created specifically for the mode.
