Unless you live under a rock and/or haven’t entered a bookstore in the past year, you’ve heard of Seth Grahame-Smith and his literary mash-up “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”. It’s a New York Times bestseller that has already generated two similar titles, (“Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters”, “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”) and a prequel (“Dawn of the Dreadfuls”): Plus, there’s a movie adaptation on the way, starring Natalie Portman. In short; this book is phenomenon.
Knowing all that, it makes total sense that developer Freeverse is jumping on the “PP&Z” bandwagon, making an iPhone game based on the franchise. According to Kotaku, Freeverse has described the game as “a rollicking action title with the perfect blend of zombie slaying action and touching romance narrative”. Based on the picture, that means Victorian-themed zombie killing with romantic cutscenes. “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” will hit the App Store some time in April.
