Digital Reality announces‘DEAD BLOCK’, a unique zombie defense game for XBLA, PSN and PC platforms

Budapest, Hungary - 5 th May 2011– United States in the 1950’s - Rock’n’Roll music was spawned directly from hell and caused havoc to western civilization. The music was so evil it even revived dead people, turning them into Zombies!

Digital Reality announced today that it will publish Dead Block, the upcoming 3 rd Person Action Defense zombie survival game developed by the Hamburg based studio Candygun Games.

Dead Block focuses on innovative defensive gameplay in which the few remaining survivors, Jack Foster (a construction worker), Foxy Jones (a traffic warden), and Mike Bacon (a perpetually hungry boy scout) have formed an unlikely alliance to protect themselves from the invading undead. Hiding in various shelters around town, they avoid Zombies by building blockades, setting fiendish traps or– as a last resort– using their weapons to fight.

In addition to 10 Single-player levels the game offers up to 4-Player, Split-Screen Multiplayer with an additional 8 Multiplayer co-op levels where players can fight side by side with their friends.

Dead Block was built on Epic Games’ award-winning Unreal Engine 3, which offers cutting edge technology and develops multi-platform products with great efficiency.

The game will be available in North America and Europe on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC platforms later this year.
