The Invasion is Coming as New Footage Rises of Fort Zombie

NEW YORK– October 21, 2009– Offering a chilling glimpse to those who think they are ready to take on the evil foes of Fort Zombie, Paradox Interactive invites players to view the opening movie sequence from the upcoming lite action/RPG title, which is set to release on all digital distribution channels this fall. The game's opening sets the stage for the latest entry into the zombie gaming genre, introducing players to the characters and challenges that await them in Piety, Indiana.

“We are absolutely amazed at the reception that Fort Zombie has received so far," said Chris Stewart of Kerberos Productions, the development studio behind Fort Zombie. "What started out as a fun little side project for us, which was designed simply to give gamers and zombie fans a couple of great laughs along with a great gaming experience, has attracted serious attention from fans of the zombie cult phenomenon even before the game's actually release. We can’t wait until they get a chance to pick up a shotgun and hit the zombie-infested streets of Piety!"

In Fort Zombie, players must save the town of Piety, Indiana from an impending wave of zombies migrating from a nearby major city. Players are challenged to take control of a single building throughout the entire campaign. By effectively building this structure into the ultimate fort, as well as carefully searching for supplies and finding and training survivors in Piety, players have a chance at conquering and outlasting the flesh-hungry zombies.
