There have been many times during the past 10 years of watching The Walking Dead TV show where I’ve thought to myself, “Wow. What a stupid decision, you deserve to get eaten”. That’s part of the fun of zombie shows though. Not the wanting people to get eaten bit, mind. I’m talking about imagining what you’d do if you were in that character’s shoes. About fantasising about what you’d be willing to do in order to survive.
I’ve played these scenarios out many a time in video games of course. It feels like pretty much fifty percent of all flat games out there are zombie games, so I’d like to think I’ve got a good idea of how things would go if I got caught up in these situations. I’ve also played a fair few zombie games in VR too, but The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners is probably the first one of these that delivers a truly authentic and believable feeling of surviving in the aftermath of an undead uprising.
In this week’s episode of Ian’s VR Corner, you’ll be able to see how well I get on in my very own zombie apocalypse as I play through the first hour of Saints and Sinners on the Oculus Rift S. Well, not just play. More like role play, because I’ve created my very own TV show called, The Walk-Ian Dead. Enjoy!
