Techland, developers of Call of Juarez, have announced a new zombie/survival horror game dubbed Dead Island. Apparently a lot of work has been put into a real-time deformation engine, which means you’ll be leaving these zombies with ultra-realistic wounds and injuries. Sounds wonderfully brutal.
While what we’ve been shown of the game so far seems to tread awfully close to Capcom’s Dead Rising in more than just name, I’m pretty sure Capcom will be the only people on earth who care about that. After all, it’s not as if Dead Rising itself wasn’t entirely derivative of the movie Dawn of the Dead - yet we ate it up and asked for more.
