Deadlines: News roundup 5/25/09

Posted by Cory Casciato On May - 25 - 2009


A daily roundup of all the undead news that shambles into view… Got news tips? E-mail me at cory.casciato[AT]

We’ve got another zombie apocalypse incoming! This one is called Autumn, and it’s a story about a plague that kills basically everybody in one very bad day. Then, in an even worse day for the survivors, the dead come back. It looks to be coming this fall (surprise, eh?), it has David Carradine and it sounds cool to me. Bloody Disgusting gets credit for spotting it and you can get more details and a trailer (unembeddable, sorry) at the official site. (Bloody Disgusting)

The upcoming issue of Rue Morgue has a piece on Dead Snow and a complementary piece on the fetid swamp that is the Nazi zombie subgenre, plus a piece about the Zombeatles and lots of other cool horror stuff. (Rue Morgue @ MySpace)

PopCap games are saying that the whimsical tower-defense zombie game Plants vs. Zombies (review coming as soon as I can stop playing long enough to write it!) is their best selling game ever. They’ve also got some more details on its origins. (Gamasutra)

It seems just a month ago I was reporting that Resident Evil 5 had sold 1.5 million copies (because it was), but today, Capcom bigwigs say that number is up to five million. Seems fishy, but who knows? In any case, RE5? It’s sold a lot. (Kotaku)
