Apple Features Stubbs
7:19 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple's games site recently featured the upcoming undead epic Stubbs The Zombie. Brought to unlife by the folks at Wideload and Aspyr, Stubbs follows the exploits of one zombie as he quests for brains and revenge. Apple's feature includes commentary from Wideload's Matt Soell about the game's focus on humor.

“As soon as you say ‘The hero of our story is a brain-eating zombie,’ seriousness goes right out the window,” Soell adds. “We were trying to make people smile, not meditate on their existential angst. So we went for the giggles.”

Of course, Soell gives much credit for the game’s inspiration to George Romero’s zombie films. “Setting our story in Pennsylvania was my little tip of the hat to him,” the writer reveals. “There’s a little bit of Peter Jackson’s ‘Dead Alive’ in the game, and a little bit of ‘Return of the Living Dead’, and maybe some ‘28 Days Later’ sprinkled on top.
