Imagine that you’ve spent several years working for a company that sees you only as a cog in the machine, another tool wearing a white collar shirt and choking tie. You spend your days filling out reports and taking the occasional break to step into the adjoining cubicle and crack a half-hearted joke with your kinda-sorta-not really friend and office-mate, Norm, as co-workers around you continue drearily going through the day in, day out motions of the workplace like the corporate walking dead.

Well, in indie developer bignic’s isometric action game Zombies. (yes, the period is intentional), the metaphorical becomes literal…and poor Norm is devoured by a buzzword-spouting zombie. (“Synergy,” the reanimated corpse groans before sinking his teeth into poor Norm’s eyeball.) You play as a sarcastic — often intelligent, sometimes dim-witted — everyman simply known as “Dude,” who tries to escape from his office, now overrun with zombies. »
