To Celebrate a year of Running @GREENLIGHTGOLD I've created a poll of the very best of Greenlight's most prevalent genre: The Zombie game. A quick search reveals an astounding 93 Zombie games on Steam Greenlight, representing 15% of the 1416 games submitted. With so much competition I feel that it is time to recognise the very best of what Greenlight has to offer in this thriving genre. I have chosen eight games that I think exemplify the qualities of indie Zombie development. Games are presented with screenshots and excerpts from description text. Which Zombie game is the best? or worst?

Please note that the games here represent a very small portion of the zombie games currently on Greenlight, the rest are so identical as to not be worth mentioning.

But sometimes … transform into a zombie will be a great idea, because the rest of zombies will not attack you … [...]
We're a very passionate team about games, comics and films (specially Zombie films :P), so the game includes many references to movies, comic books and games that we like

Ray's The Dead:

Nostalgic and inviting 80’s setting. You’ll meet lots of familiar faces and see lots of familiar sights in this throwback to this eclectic period.

When hipsters turn themselves into zombies and haunt the living it's time to fight back. Ironically.

Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov’s Revenge is a lighthearted real-time strategy game with borrowed elements from the MOBA genre


Yes "zombies" are played out - That's part of the irony. This is a zombies game thats NOT ABOUT ZOMBIES.

"Zombies." is about something much more terrifying than the Hollywood rendering of the mindless undead. It's about a monster that actually exists in real life - Middle Management.

Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead:

to get a bit of relaxation after the last great battle, our hero Holy Avatar decides to grab a little R&R with his Guild of Maidens on a Caribbean island he recently purchased and renamed “Holy Island”.

Upon arrival on the beach, he makes a gruesome discovery; numerous dead maidens, horribly mutilated, are scattered all over the island and what’s worse, they’re not staying dead!
