The four brothers that comprise Foursaken Media didn’t pop up on my radar until January of 2011 when they released Bug Heroes [Free / $4.99], a brilliant amalgamation of tower defense, dual-stick shooting, and RPG elements. They followed that up strong with the spinoff action game Bug Heroes Quest [$0.99], the silly and fun arcade game Food Ninja [Free] (formerly Mad Chef), and the competitive tournament racer Sky Gnomes [Free].
However, many people know the talented studio from their very first iOS release called N.Y.Zombies [$0.99]. It came out way back in April of 2010, well before zombie games were flooding the App Store on a weekly basis, and although it slipped under my radar back then N.Y.Zombies amassed a cult-like following in our forums and elsewhere for its creepy atmosphere and intense zombie shooting.
Foursaken has teased that a sequel is something they’ve wanted to do for a long time, and it seems with all other current projects completed that’s exactly what they’re working on now. Today they released the very first gameplay teaser trailer for N.Y.Zombies 2, and although it’s still in the middle of development, it already blows the original out of the water in terms of visuals.
The list of new features in N.Y.Zombies 2 includes co-op multiplayer, free-roaming ability, improved visuals and larger environments, RPG elements, and a story to tie it all together. N.Y.Zombies 2 is slated to hit sometime this year, which Foursaken narrows down to “soon”, so kick back in our forums to pass the time until we can all get our hands on this promising looking sequel.
