Zombies and Pterodactyls (ZP2KX) Announced for Xbox Live Indie Games

From the indie developer who brought you The Dishwasher and I MAED A GAM3 W1TH ZOMB1ES 1N IT!!!1 comes a multiplayer-focused game with zombies, pterodactyls, and humans. Think of a world where Pterodactyls are hell-bent on creating human versus zombie war that includes jetpacks, capture the flag, deadly rainbows, and AK-47 that shoots cats, and the Cloud sword. ZP2KX be releasing the week of November 28th as part of the Indie Games Winter Uprising for only 80 Microsoft points. Check after the break for more info and screenshots.

Fearing a shortage of combatants for their real-world human versus zombie “death matches,” pterodactyls convinced developer Ska Studios to create an indie game that some are calling “outrageous war propaganda”. Zombies and Pterodactyls 20XX (also known as ZP2KX) is the controversial game that pterodactyls hope will entice gamers to join their wildly entertaining, highly unethical humans versus zombies battles. ZP2KX will release to Xbox LIVE Indie Games during Indie Games Winter Uprising the week of November 28th for 80 Microsoft points. And even though the pterodactyls’ main objective is to recruit new combatants, their decision to charge 80 points was made because they too have to earn a living.

Just released ZP2KX documentation reads as a sale pitch that is clearly marketed to appeal to gamers. The documentation reads: “Players can take their jetpacks online to splatter fools with blades, guns, grenades and other instruments of mayhem, all in a world where rainbows are deadly weapons and Africanized bees are used as ammunition. Game unlocks, character customization, earned XP and special skills are just a small sampling of what ZP2KX has to offer, so don’t miss out on this Xbox LIVE enabled kill fest of FUN! VIOLENCE! DESTRUCTION!”

When asked about their controversial involvement in the development of such war propaganda, Ska Studios responded; “We’re in the business of creating the finest, most immersive indie games ever. That has always been and will forever be our goal. ZP2KX is just that, a quality indie game that is pure entertainment and we cannot be held responsible for what gamers do outside of that experience. All hail the Pterodactyl King.”
