Teenage Zombies aangekondigd

Helaas is er bar weinig te zien in de trailer.

Het Britse Ignition Entertainment heeft deze week aangekondigd dat men bezig is met de ontwikkeling van Teenage Zombies: Invasion of the Alien Brain Thingys. In de game is de aarde weer eens in gevaar en ligt ditmaal de hoop van de mensheid in handen van drie tiener zombies. Niet langer zijn de mensen hun prooi, maar de random roze breinen die werkelijk overal te vinden zijn. Of het wat wordt? Op die vraag durven we geen antwoord te geven. Je kan de teaser bekijken, maar ook die zal je geen fatsoenlijke hoeveelheid informatie verschaffen. Wél hebben we een fact sheet, waarin onder andere te vinden is dat het een adventure game wordt en dat deze game in het tweede kwartaal van 2008 exclusief naar de Nintendo DS komt in de Verenigde Staten en Europa.


Marina Del Rey, Calif. – October 25, 2007 – Ignition Entertainment is pleased to announce Teenage Zombies: Invasion of the Alien Brain Thingys! is coming to North America and Europe exclusively for the Nintendo DS.

The Earth is under attack by a horde of Alien Brain… uh…Thingys! Humans, succumbing to ray-guns, mind-control, and shiny flying saucers, have failed to defend their planet and let it fall easily into the clutches of the Big Brain and his army of Brain Thingys. The only hope left for mankind is three Teenage Zombies that have arisen from a graveyard disturbed in the invasion. The undead trio ignores their normal human victims in favor of the pulsing pink brains they see EVERYWHERE – all the while being lured to the ultimate lunch: THE BIG BRAIN! The Big Brain soon realizes he’s overlooked this “Super Race” as they inexplicably resist mind control, are unaffected by ray-gun wounds, and devour his Brain Thingy Armies like sweets! He refocuses his efforts and resources to battle the Earth’s greatest champions: The Teenage Zombies!

“The characters in Teenage Zombies have instant appeal,” said Ken Gratz, Director of Product Development at Ignition USA. “InLight’s team has come up with a uniquely humorous and satirical take on comics and retro sci-fi. You throw in a solid platformer and some truly entertaining mini-games, and you have a game that is accessible to all and downright fun to play.”

Teenage Zombies uses a whimsical style that focuses on, and parodies the Zombie genre, as well as 1950s style Science Fiction. This is presented in a comic book look featuring comic book panels, dialogue boxes and story telling. Gameplay involves side-scrolling adventures opening up to stylus mini-games, double-screen boss battles, and brain busting puzzle challenges.

“InLight Entertainment is looking forward to the opportunity to work with such a dynamic publisher,” said Devin Young, President and CEO of InLight Entertainment. “Ignition Entertainment brings a wealth of publishing knowledge and I’m looking forward to great synergy between the two companies.”

Key features:

* Unique Comic Mode which drives the story with an interactive comic book style presentation
* Platforming gameplay that requires the player to swap between characters to solve levels
* Each character has their own unique abilities to aid them through their adventure
* Mini Games featuring the zombies (or their body parts) using all the Nintendo DS features
* The Big Brain Challenge – a series of quick micro mini games that happen at anytime during gameplay to win or lose against the Big Brain
* ZAPS! (Zombie Assembly Pop-up Screen) – a mini-game where you use collected body parts to quickly create a zombie to regain your “unhealth points”

Developed by Inlight Entertainment, Teenage Zombies: Invasion of the Alien Brain Thingys! for the Nintendo DS is scheduled for a worldwide release Spring ’08.
