Well, my prayers have finally been answered. A company called DoubleBear Productions is working on a turn-based, single-player computer zombie apocalypse RPG focused on survival and interactions between the survivors. As one of the designers puts it, “Unlike other games that are just about blasting zombies, the difficulties in this game stem from dealing with the other personalities in the group, the threats from outside the group, and the dangers of daily existence in the absence of law and the presence of desperate humans and persistent undead. It’s more about the humans than the zombies.” Oh.Hell.Yes. (The Escapist)

Speaking of prayers? The excellent Walking Dead comic series is in development as a TV series for AMC. If any series could make for compelling zombie TV, it’s this one — I couldn’t be more excited (Oh.Hell.Yes.Pt.2). Frank Darabont is set to write and diect, Gale Ann Hurd to produce (less exciting, but workable). (Variety)

In honor of I Sell the Dead hitting VOD today (check your local cable listings), how about a making-of video and statement from the director? It’s not embeddable, sorry. (Fangoria)

Spend $10 at ThinkGeek, get a free, ten-year anniversary zombie monkey shirt? Yes please! (Zombie Examiner)

Curious what’s going on with Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated, the collaborative animation/film project that reinvents George Romero’s OZ classic? Well, there’s a buttload of news — coloring contests, calls for comics, screening info, the works. (Dread Cental)

More zombie ants? Sure, you can never have enough. (Live Science)
