Who would have thought a game about zombies could elicit this kind of reaction?  :(  I need to inflict it on others.  This is a fine bit of trailer-making.  (Also, warning, probably best not to watch if you are under 18 or sensitive to graphic violence or horribly tragic scenarios).

Apparently Hollywood's already interested in movie rights.

Also, this, mostly because I'm jealous I didn't think of it first:

...You know, I had a feeling you'd put in TRAGIC just for me, but you know, completely unfair, since I still end up trying things that you say. :| SDKFSJFL, SIN YOU DEVIL. I sort of want to see it proper way round, because I'm all starryeyed at all the slowmotion and the story of it all but take away the pretty instrumental and I'd probably be horrified. :D

That's not my problem! I warn you and everything, but you never believe me! XD

Interesting you should mention! IGN did indeed cut together a chronological version. The sound effects parts don't quite match up, but otherwise: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bwtr_-4vz6g

<3 I DON'T THINK THE GAME HAS A CHANCE OF EVEN HOLDING A CANDLE TO THE TRAILER, HONESTLY.

OMFG That trailer is awesome, but so totally creepy. And that's a game you say? I don't know if I would be able to play that. T_T That poor family. *sobs*

It is indeed, Dead Island, coming out soon. The game probably isn't going to be anything special actually, but it's certainly an amazingly moving trailer, isn't it?

Ouch, that really hurt watching the trailer ;___; IT STABS IN THE HEART!!! PAIN!!! ;______; I wasn't going to watch it then I saw everyone's comments and you know humans...........just gotta find out no matter how horrifying!

The second one was interesting......are those sounds supposed to be from a particular TV show or movie?

Curiosity killed the cat - you must be one of those poor victims of goatse and two girls one cup. (And if you're not yet, has my mentioning them now doomed you?) ;)

I don't think so, I believe it was a sound designer trying to make an attention-grabbing show reel. Genius, I must say!

I haven't looked up goatse but let me destroy myself now XD! and then yes, I have looked up two girls one cup, quite an innocuous term for such a..........yeah............

and oh yes, I've seen that picture before.........

Ah I see XD! That is all very good! Speaking of sound and music, I went with friends to see the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra play John Williams' film soundtrack pieces at the Melbourne Town Hall! It was fantastic!!! I'll do a brief writeup.

Gorgeous trailer in a sort of horrifying way. Won't be playing the game as I have no money, but kudoos to every made the thing.

Out of curiousity ever read a book called World War Z: the Oral History of the zombie war? If you're even mildly interested in zombies it's well worth a read.

As for the second... *giggles*

The game itself probably won't be anything special anyhow, but as a short film, awesome.

I haven't! Thank you for the rec. My experience with written zombie literature extends mostly to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (It is a truth, universally acknowledged, that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains), but this sounds interesting.
