August 12, 2010 - P2 Games and doublesix, in the face of growing protests and excessive undead moaning, today went ahead and confirmed that the mega-hit arcade shooter Burn Zombie Burn is now available on Steam for only $9.99 and£6.99 and 7.99Euros. P2 is launching the hit game despite ongoing demands from the undead civil rights group, the Brotherhood for the Restriction of Attacks, Aggression, Ammunition and Injury of Necrotic Species (B.R.A.A.A.I.N.S).
BZB-Bruno "We had hopes that P2 Games would listen to reason and not publish any more versions of this very anti-undead piece of software," said Romero A. Bubb of B.R.A.A.A.I.N.S "And now we're hearing rumors of additional versions coming from P2! What's next you embalming fluid thirsty programming geeks... a Commodore 64 version???"
"Burn Zombie Burn casts players as Bruce, an average guy who only wanted to spend time with his girlfriend Daisy before their Saturday night was ruined by packs of zombies. It's up to Bruce to shoot, burn and blow up as many undead as possible before he succumbs to their attacks. The PC version of the game will feature the standard Freeplay, Defend Daisy and Timed modes, as well as a new Survival mode, which packs an ever increasing number of ghouls onscreen to test your accuracy. Additionally, a harder Extreme difficulty mode will demand a player's best shooting and dodging skills, as you face off against hardier enemies. All zombie hunters will also receive a strategy guide and comic to help instruct them in how to eliminate shambling corpses. You can also download the comic and guide now at Filefront: http://news.filefront.com/burn-zombie-burn-exclusive-strategy-guide-and-comic-book
Burn Zombie Burn received tons of media praise when it first became available for the PlayStation Network including an 8.3 score ("impressive") from leading gaming site, IGN.com. And GameZone was even kinder, giving BZB a stellar 8.8 out of 10 (and we paid them less money, go figure!).

Burn Zombie Burn is rated by the ESRB as M for Mature (because it can be a little gross occasionally), by PEGI as 18+ and by OLFC as Mature 15 +...so if you're a kid you might want to look for a game with a little less human munching.
