Zombie Vikings is Whacked-Out and Wonderful
Zoink Games surprised many of us with last year’s Stick it To The Man. This year, they’re setting their psychotic sites on the hack ‘n slash genre with Zombie Vikings. The game features four-player co-op, online multiplayer, and the ability to stitch yourself together into one Mega-zombie. I’m guessing that last part will come in handy during boss fights.
Zoink is yet again pulling in some popular talent to work on their game. Where Stick it To The Man received help from Adventure Time comic writer Ryan North, Zombie Vikings is being penned by Zach Weinersmith of Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal Comics.
Keep an eye here and the official game page for updates including dev diaries.
One of my fondest hack ‘n slash memories is of Guardian Heroes on the Sega Saturn. I had my fair share of fun with Castle Crashers back in the day, and am readily willing to play anything Zoink Games puts out after thoroughly enjoying Stick it To The Man. I like the art style and am looking forward to what I’m sure will be a hilarious story.
