10 BEST WiiU LAUNCH TITLES
Complex Gaming

“Smart and engaging... it frequently delights.”
Edge

“The best survival horror of the year.”
Metro

“The game also benefits from a well-structured plot: it isn't just about the fighting... The atmosphere created by the music and plotting excels.”
Den of Geek

“One hell of a launch title... the way the story is told through both environmental details and different sources is skilfully done.”
Eurogamer

“The storyline, based on an adapted history of Britain, is intriguing... hell-bent on causing as much tension as possible.”
The Independent

“Unique in a number of ways, including its story... a wonderfully frightening experience.”
Joystiq

The Second Great Plague is upon London.

Predicted five hundred years ago by John Dee — the legendary Elizabethan scientist, alchemist, advisor, and spy — and known as the “Blight”, this virulent infection has swept across the capital and brought the city to its knees in mere days. The police, military, and government all ignored the warnings, and now they are gone. Nobody can help you.

Nobody, that is, except The Prepper. An enigmatic mentor, working from a remote HQ to help ordinary people like you survive, The Prepper will teach you the secret paths through London and the knowledge you need to avoid becoming lunch... if you can learn fast enough.

How long will you survive?

ZOMBIU is a survival horror WiiU launch title from Ubisoft Montpellier, developers of BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL and FROM DUST. I worked closely with the team to create and develop the backstory, narrative, game world, and characters, and wrote the game script.
