The origins of Zombie survival games
Brain-eating zombies have been popular monsters to star in horror movies since Night of the Living Dead, and have become all the more widespread with the commercial success of series such as The Walking Dead. The first zombie video game was released in the mid 80s with Sandy White’s 1984 maze game Zombie Zombie, but within the world of gaming zombies really took off with the launch of Capcom’s Resident Evil series in 1996. Adapted from Haitian folklore and the religion of voodoo, the zombie has undergone significant changes in Western media. Originally, the zombie was a victim of an evil sorcerer who used magic to imprison a human’s soul and body into servitude even after death. However, in many video games and movies, zombies have come to represent fears about mindless consumer culture, disease, and out-of-control science. Frequently, a scientific accident or a deadly pathogen is responsible for mutating people into hungry ghouls that feed off human flesh.
