Emotional “Dead Island” Zombie Game Trailer

Pretty damn stunning. This new announcement trailer for “Dead Island”, a new console game coming from Techland, is quite impressive – promising not just another lazy shoot ’em up or satire, but a story-driven and more realistic take on what happens when an undead outbreak hits a tropical resort.

The setting, piano score and emotional character focus of the trailer remind me of “Lost”, the structure is akin to “Memento”, and the zombie attack scenes are along the lines of any number of movies. Originally slated for a 2008 release, this is finally coming for PC and Xbox 360 hopefully later in the year.
