New guest cards - Mr. Destructoid and Zpocalypse crew!
by Sebastian Haley, Creative Director
A wise man once told me, "Haley, you need to use more smilies in your emails." That man was Niero, the founder of www.destructoid.com. If you don't know what that is, you'll probably want to skip down to the second part of this announcement.
For all the Dtoiders out there, though, I'm very honored that my old boss will be joining Tex Murphy and Jessica Nigri in our humble little zombie apocalypse. I'm also a little surprised that Niero agreed to let his shiny new helmet get splattered with blood for his card, but I also lied and said it would wash right out, so....
To honor the occasion, we're holding a contest of sorts where anyone can submit a Photoshop or drawing of what Mr. Destructoid would look like as a survivor, or as a zombie.
You can link to them in the comments below, or post it on the Destructoid announcement article.
We'll share the best ones in an update this weekend, then on Monday, June 25th, we'll choose two winners (one zombie, one survivor). You'll both get a Deluxe Boxed Edition of Z., signed and numbered, with over 350 cards.
To kick things off, here's my rendition of a zombie Mr. Destructoid. It took me roughly 10 WHOLE seconds to Google.... :)
Now for the second part of today's guest card announcement: Zpocalypse.
The Zpocalypse crew has kindly agreed to appear as cards in Z. You can never have too many zombie apocalypses going on at once, right?
One day Jeff decided to make a board game. With the support of his wife Theresa, he gathered his team; Zack was the technical shaman, Ricky added artwork, David added business savvy, Nick gave legal counsel and Julie created a storyline and provided editing for the group. Thus Greenbrier Games was formed…and then there was an outbreak.
Zpocalypse combines combat, resource collection, character development and team strategy with the goal of surviving a zombie apocalypse.
If you missed your chance to back Zpocalypse on Kickstarter, you can now pre-order the game.
I'll put the decision out to you guys, the backers: Should all five Zpocalypse characters (who are also the devs) be their own card, or should they be a single bad-ass card with all five characters?
Either way you'll get it for FREE, along with Mr. Destructoid, included with every pledge at $15 and above.
