The origin of Zombie survival games
Contemporary Western zombie lore combines modern cultural fears about science and the end of civilization with inspiration drawn from the enslaved living dead of Haitian folklore, Arabic stories of flesh-eating ghouls that haunt graveyards and consume human flesh, and the resurrected rotting corpses from old French and English revenant tales. The first zombie video game, Zombie Zombie by Sandy White, came out in 1984. In this game, players use a helicopter to find the zombies roaming through a maze environment, and must lure the undead over the edge of a cliff. However, it was Capcom's 1996 release Resident Evil that really popularized the zombie genre in gaming. In this game, members of an elite task force go in search of their missing teammates and have to fight their way out of a mansion infested by zombies and other grotesque monsters. The Resident Evil series was so well-received that it inspired many, many survival horror video game sequels, the Resident Evil movie series, and the Biohazard movies and novels.
Survive the Zombie apocalypse!
More recently, casual zombie games have proliferated online as well. These games are free to play and span a number of other gaming genres. If you're into horror and jump scares, try our 3D zombie horror games in which a terrible virus or scientific experiment has turned most of the human population into living corpses hungry for human flesh and brains. Make your way through the ruined city or abandoned military base and level your gun at the foul monsters that leap out at you. You can also choose games in which you have to build a base and keep the zombies out. Build deadly traps, gather weapons and a team of other survivors, and make sure you stock up on enough ammunition, food, and medical supplies to hold down the fort until the military arrives. Can you develop the right strategies and tactics to survive the zombie infestation? Good luck!
