GDC 2013: ‘Zombie Faceball’ is Whacking Zombie Heads Like Baseballs

Besides giving us a look at Pylon yesterday, a rather hardcore action RPG, Quantumsquid was also showing off an upcoming game on the other end of the spectrum with their casual high-scoring game Zombie Faceball. I know, I know, zombies, am I right? But Zombie Faceball does the theme well, and the game itself is fun, which is what really counts.

Zombie Faceball is similar to a catapulting game where you’re trying to go for the greatest distance, and you use a baseball kind of mechanic to actually knock the heads off of approaching zombies and see how far you can send them. Think Flick Homerun ($0.99) with zombies and a ton of customizations and power-ups. Check out the video. (Side note: I’m not sure why but the audio quality didn’t come out too great. It’s still very listenable, just a bit on the muffled side. Apologies.)

Zombie Faceball is a silly, fun kind of game that doesn’t take itself seriously, and it should be hitting within the next month or so. Be on the lookout for it if you’ve got a hankering to knock some heads off of some zombies.
