Some of Left 4 Dead 2‘s characters are making their way into the wonderful world of social media (Facebook, YouTube). Will you join them? (Kotaku)

Coming soon to a console near you, a massively multiplayer online zombie role-playing game from a new studio formed by Jeff Strand, one of the heavyweights of MMO gaming. Two words: Fuck and YES. (Horror Squad)

Go behind the scenes of Resident Evil: Afterlife with a video posted by Milla Jovovich from her Twitter account. I embedded it for you after the break. (Bloody Disgusting)

The good folk of Quiet Earth have some concept art and poster images for the upcoming Outpost II: Black Sun, another Nazi-zombie film. (Quiet Earth)

Sisters fight off zombies in One Last Sunset, an upcoming film from Kevin Richmond. Teaser trailer embedded after the break. (Quiet Earth)

Check out this zombie outbreak simulator that runs on Google Maps. It’s apparently a precursor to a real-time strategy game that will also run on Google Maps. (Zombie Command)

The city of Longmont, Colorado has been taken over by a 600-strong game of Humans vs. Zombies. That is awesome. (Longmont Times Call)

The promos for Survival of the Dead are beginning to appear. Right now you can get a few tidbits, such as a new image (a zombie hand reaching through a door) and info on where to find info on various social networking sites, such the official Twitter page and official MySpace. (Fangoria)

Speaking of MySpace and Survival of the Dead, there’s a message and behind-the-scenes video on the page. I have embedded the video and pasted the message after the break. You can also find a lot more pictures (twenty six, to be exact) at the MySpace page. See, MySpace is still good for something! (MySpace)

I don’t usually link to reviews as news, but since I had no idea that a book styled as a sequel to the 1978 classic Dawn of the Dead existed, I guess it is news. Read all about the book, Dead Reckoning. (Fangoria)

Lost Zombies wants you

Posted by Cory Casciato On March - 18 - 2009

lostzombiesHere’s one of the more original ideas in the zombie milieu — Lost Zombies, a site that aims to create a community-generated zombie documentary via a MySpace/Facebook like social networking site. They’ve got a pretty clever back story, outlined via the timeline on the site and an innovative method of farming out the pieces (a grid of needed submissions, where anyone can take a hack at whatever piece interests them). They’re also getting a fair bit of attention, thanks to some SXSW exposure. It looks like thus far they aren’t particularly close to being done and I can’t find any indication of what the target date of completion for the finished project is, but in the meantime it seems like a good place to meet fellow zombie devotees. Naturally, I signed up for a membership and you can find my profile here. Supposing I can find the time and a project that suits my talents, I will even participate. I haven’t been able to find a contact link for the project’s leadership, but if I can, I intend to interview them for the site. Stay tuned.
