Downward Viral has launched a Kickstarter project for a zombies vs. survivors card game entitled “Z.” It is described as “Magic: The Gathering meets The Walking Dead.” In addition to trying to secure funds, the team behind the project is currently looking for cosplayers interested in appearing on the cards.
From the press release:
Downward Viral is proud to announce world-famous cosplayers Jessica Nigri, Linda Le, and Monika Lee have taken arms against the undead in Z. Our revolutionary downloadable zombie card game has attracted the attention of game designers Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert (Double Fine) and Robert Bowling (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare) — who personally donated $10K toward our cause.
We’d like to invite the talented cosplayers in the California area to choose their side and become zombies or survivors. Our game uses Hollywood-quality live photography and horror make-up effects, so each and every card is unique. We welcome original costumes and props and encourage those who are interested to apply directly to our creative director, Sebastian Haley. We’d love to hear your idea!
Joining Z. is a great way to participate in the geek community and the zombie apocalypse itself. We hope you share the news with your readers and help to support Z. With more than half of our funding goal reached, we still need one last big push to make it before Saturday, July 14!
