Moving Pixels Podcast

Fun, Sun, Zombies

by G. Christopher Williams

10 October 2011

This week the Moving Pixels podcast takes a look at the controversial, but also critically lauded Dead Island.
 

Nothing says vacation quite like a beach full of zombies. 

After the controversy and excitement surrounding the release of its trailer earlier in the year, many gamers wondered whether that possibly exploitative, possibly sophisticated bit of a teaser for Dead Island was really representative of what this open world, survival horror hybrid would be.

This week the Moving Pixels podcast attempts to answer that question as well as considers other elements of the zombie-infested beach fronts of Dead Island.
