OMG HD Zombies shuffles towards PC

The army have failed society and it is up to you, one lone policeman and his rifle, to push back the apocalyptic walking dead. Laughing Jackal originally released OMG Zombies for the PSP, where it quickly became one of the top-rated games on Sony’s system. It’s now coming to the PC in HD and it sounds like a great way to while away an evening.

“OMG HD Zombies is a massively enhanced remake of the critically acclaimed OMG-Z,” writes developer Laughing Jackal. “For those of you who never experienced the simple joys of zombie-popping first time around, the zombie virus in OMG HD Zombies is the result of a virulent fungus that causes its zombified victims to EXPLODE when attacked. That’s pretty cool in itself, but if any infected matter lands on another zombie then they explode too, causing a chain-reaction tsunami of gore! Wise to this, as a highly trained Riot Cop you’re able to take down hordes of the undead with a single well-placed rifle round.”

The porting work is being handled by Ghostlight. Usually the developer works on bringing Japanese games to the English-speaking market but “from time to time” they do “release games produced a bit closer to home,” writes Ghostlight. “The next title we bring to Steam will be the fabulous OMG Zombies from Laughing Jackal, which is currently slated for a mid-February release.

“OMG Zombies is a PC port of the critically acclaimed Vita title OMG HD Zombies and includes all the new features that were introduced in that version of the game.”

That includes Steam Trading Cards, cloud saving, mouse and keyboard support, higher resolutions, 100 levels, 100 upgrades, and a prestige mode.

OMG HD Zombies is due out in February.
