What IS this game?

I've never heard of this game and have found out zero information about it. Anyone know what game it is and can give me a rundown of it?

It's a zombie game (I'm assuming) where you use a Guitar Hero or Rock Band guitar controller, it's been said to be a tribute to Typing of the Dead. And it has Neil Patrick Harris and Felicia Day doing voices. That's about as much as I know.

Here is a video...Although it is for the Wii, I am guessing it will be similar.


Remember that google is your friend...

actually imo it looks like it would be easier to just use a controller (assuming they let you use one like they do in GH) at least for me anyway but about the game it looks really fun since it has a real house of the dead feel to it, less gory though

Definitely looks much easier to use a controller.

..wow..the concept alone will make me want to check it out when it comes out..and they managed to grab NPH and Felicia Day for voices? Lets hope the game does not completely suck.

I'm definitely getting this game. It's only $40, you kill zombies with a guitar, and Neil Patrick Harris is the main character. Graphics and gameplay don't look like the greatest, but the things i just mentioned make up for that.

Just saw this on the upcoming games list.... and i must say this is one cheesy ass looking game.... but the possibility that you can play it with a controller (love playing Guitar games with a controller) and it probably gonna have easy achievements too.

I don't know why people are saying the game looks cheesy or repetitive. Well, the graphics I can understand, but I don't really care that much about the old look. That adds to the good "cheeziness" factor.

Gameplay DOES look repetitive in the video, but it seems like it wouldn't be that easy either. I mean, there were only 2, maybe 3, buttons to press the whole time. That must have been easy mode or something. If it's much harder than that, AND you get to play with a guitar controller, this game looks like it could be pretty good. Repetitive? Only if you're on easy. In which case, any game becomes repetitive.

My only wonder is how do you know which enemies to kill first when there are multiple coming at you at once? Is it a "press these buttons to kill these enemies in order of your choosing" or "kill all enemies in this order" type dealy?

let's see..

1. I get to get into a fight with Rob Zombie? I can then yell at my tv screen how much his movies are ripoffs and how his music is garbage? And get an achievement for that? Sign me up!

2. Easy 1k..

3. Instant buy

I learn from experience, and any game that uses a guitar for a controller other then a music game can't possibly be good. Fret Nice, I'm looking at you.

You can use a controller for this. I tried out this game using one(didn't realize you can use the guitar that might be better)
