Inspired by Video Game Culture The Zombie Byte! Kickstarter is Now Live
Now Live on Kickstarter. Inspired by video game culture, Zombie Byte! is a 2D side-scrolling action adventure game title for all ages on iOS & Android. Playing as a boy named Miles you will battle zombified versions of his video games characters.
Miles is a lovable, witty, smart, and adept 13 year old boy who has a deep passion for all things video game. An avid gamer and collector, Miles has amassed the world’s largest video game collection in his parents basement. But one day while playing video games a portal suddenly opens and Miles video games characters come to life as zombies and start emerging from his TV.
As Miles confronts the zombie video game outbreak he may become overwhelmed in need of help. Through social media Game Forward Studio has created a interactive gameplay system for players in the Zombie Byte community to help one another in times of need. Dubbed “Play it Forward” players can request and provide Health and Power Ups from one another during those intense moments.
Zombie Byte!'s core gameplay centers around Miles running, jumping, shooting, swinging through the air with his grapple hook, and piloting a mech. Accompanied by a cartoon 2D Art Style with 3D visual effects, Zombie Byte! makes use of a mix of puzzle elements, scripted sequences, and boss battles to create gameplay variety.
Other key elements of Zombie Byte! are listed as followed.
* Family friendly for all ages with absolutely no grotesque imagery in the game
