Boston, Massachusetts – Thefty Jack Studios, have declared their intention to honor “the Zombie days of Winter” by lowering the price of their game, “Zombie I Scream.”
“We all know about the dog days of summer,” said Robert Deutsch, executive producer of Zombie I Scream, “at the end of summer when the days are unbearably hot and time slows down. We think there’s an equivalent period in winter, and we’re christening it the ‘Zombie Days.’ To celebrate, we’re lowering the price of our game at the iStore. Now you can use the money saved to buy more canned food to prepare for the zombie apocalypse.”
In the game, called “perfect” by Dread Central, you must “serve, save and survive” – that is, to advance, you must feed specially formulated ice cream cones to an onslaught of relentless, though lovable, zombies. Each zombie requires a special recipe – which the truck’s scanners tell you moments before the undead shuffle to your window. The flavors, such as “Minty Eyeball” and “Vein-illa Oblongata” have been specially created to appeal zombies, while secretly containing the anti-zombie formula. (For promotions, the company is readying some humanly edible versions, created by Artisan ice cream maker Jane’s Ice Cream of Kingston, NY).
Though the battle first wends it way through Boston – Kenmore Square and Harvard Square are two notable locations – the company is planning to roll out its next city by March 2013. That release will coincide with the end of the Zombie days of Winter.
