Appy Entertainment: Zombies In A Box

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Reviews,

ZombieBoxDo you still love the Zombies? I do.

I get a kick out of them when they’re done well, like when my pal Max Brooks writes about them (World War Z totally scared me) or when I’m reading The Walking Dead, while waiting for the new TV show.

Now it’s October, the month of Halloween, and a great time for Zombies. Especially when their blood, guts and goopy brains are on sale.

My buds at Appy Entertainment, Paul O’Connor and Chris Ulm, are putting Zombies on sale this month. It’s an iPhone app of theirs called “All-In-1 ZombieBox,” a 10-zombie-app for less than one sweet dollar.

Appy’s ZombieBox has 10 apps from 10 different indie developers: Zombie Invasion (Conniption Entertainment); Defcon Z (Monkey Armada); Draw Slasher - Dark Ninja vs. Pirate Monkey Zombies (Mass Creation); Zombie Saw (L*U*K*E); Zombie Pizza (Appy Entertainment); Zombie Nombie (Smudgy Games) Apocalypse Zombie Fish (The Binary Mill); Zombie Karts (Cascadia Games); Zombie Apocalypse Manual (PALIANTech); and my favorite name of all time: Zombie Whale Hole (Cervo e.U.)

Appy CEO Ulm says it like it is: “iPhone gamers want value. The All-In-1 ZombieBox advances the state-of-the-art for bundled applications by offering a stylish, fun, and unified theme that’s perfect for Halloween and beyond. These are the same, full-featured apps available for separate sale on the App Store—this really is an unbeatable deal for gamers.”

Here’s the hypey part: The All-In-1 ZombieBox is more than just a great deal for gamers, though. It marks the debut of “Appy Spotlight,” the new publishing imprint for the California-based Appy. Appy Spotlight will bundle games from independent developers around the world, each using Appy’s unique Xcode framework. You’ll get more bang for your app dollar, and get to play a lot of full-sized indie games.

Or to put it in terms even I can understand: Appy Spotlight is like a giant anthology of games. The of apps.

I want.

[And, Appy’s been nominated for an ME Award this year in the highly competitive category Best App Developer; not bad for a company that’s just two years old.]
