Original Z-Realm Podcast

Earlier in 2010, KMO joined my co-host Mike and I to record episode zero of our podcast Flickers from the Cave. To show a little bit of the pre-history of the Z-Realm, I wanted to post the link for that show here for everyone to experience if they wanted some background and even more zombie-talk. You can find the episode in our RSS feed, or by going to THIS webpage.

Zombie Apocalypse MMO in Development

An article in the current, print-issue of EGM about an upcoming zombie-based MMO from Undead Labs sounded very interesting so I wanted to post a link to some info that is online about the game. You can read more here. A google-search on the terms "undead labs zombie mmo" gave me quite a few other options for information.

The Dead Walk

In this time of turmoil, one thing unites us all...a fascination with those shambling sacks of skin that we like to call zombies.  Since George A. Romero re-invented the idea of what a zombie is with his ground-breaking masterpiece Night of the Living Dead in 1968, the flesh-eating zombie has become a recurring villian in a long list of popular media. The zombie has been a rich ground for creativity as well, with zombies serving admirably as stand-ins for consumerism out of control, societal stratification, science run-a-muck, and many other current topics.
The most recent addition to this long and illustrious line of zombie related media is the upcoming AMC series The Walking Dead which premieres this Halloween ( check your local listings ).  It is based on a very popular and long-running comic book of the same name written by Robert Kirkman.  In light of this impending epicness, my friend KMO and I decided that the time was right for a podcast and, to a lesser-extent, a blog that focuses on the subject of zombies.
