Seattle, WA, USA – Jeff Strain, former lead programmer of Blizzard’s World of Warcraft who also worked on games like Diablo, StarCraft, Warcraft III, and Guild Wars, has formed a new company called Undead Labs.  Their first title?  A console MMO about surviving a zombie apocalypse.  (The intended console has not been specified.)

“Every time I see a good zombie movie with friends, we spend days debating our strategies for surviving the zombie apocalypse,” said Strain. “The police station or the supermarket? Garden rake or staple gun? Bach or The White Stripes? I’m a game developer, so I’d probably be useless for anything other than ghoul bait, but I’m excited to have the opportunity to build an MMOZ [Massively Multiplayer Online Zombie Game] that lets us put those strategies to the test and find out for sure.”

So, Elder-Geeks; yea or nay on this idea?

  1. This is exactly the idea I was pitching a few months ago. Like L4D on a much larger scale. I hope that there’s a beta.
