Containment: The Zombie Puzzler will be available on Steam March 2 nd, 2012! Created by the 4 man Bootsnake Games, an independent startup founded by ex-developers of the Supreme Commander franchise and Pirates of the Burning Sea.
Check out the game in action on our release announcement trailer over at our website:
“… shakes the dust off matching-style games” – Touch Arcade 4.5/5
“Containment: The Zombie Puzzler is a clever and original mutant offspring of Match-3 and Zombies that oozes with style, atmosphere, and graphical goodness.” – Mobile Tech Review 5/5
Containment transports the player to the sleepy town of Franklin – a town best known for its award-winning apple pie, the state's largest Science and History museum, and most recently, the Zombie horde feasting upon its citizens.
We at Bootsnake Games love Puzzle games. We've played and enjoyed pretty much every game in the genre. When we got together to make Containment , our own tile-based puzzle game, we discussed all the things we could improve to help move the genre forward. The two biggest targets on our list were colored gem-based visuals and match-3 gameplay. Almost every game we had played used a variant of those things.
From the beginning, we wanted to shake things up a bit. By moving from match-3 to a new surround mechanic and replacing gems with 3D characters that animate in compelling ways, we've done it. We've also added a full Zombie-infested town that players will fight through during the game. Making use of this environment – as well as items picked up along the way – is the only way to contain the Zombie menace.
Our goal with Containment is to infuse Puzzle games with the personality they need, while retaining the great puzzle qualities that brought us to the genre in the first place.
Bootsnake Games is an independent game company based in Seattle, WA. Our founding principle is to create awesome games and throw our immense passion into the projects.
