      Indie developer Ballardia has been in contact with gd.ie to say that their first title, World of the Living Dead, is currently in closed beta.

      We are hoping to run a competition here on gd.ie soon to give away five beta keys so keep an eye out. You can also sign up online at their website.

      World of the Living Dead is the work of Dave Barton – former Chief Game Designer at Jolt Online and designer of the Jolt/Activision Legends of Zork game – and Kulpreet Singh – former CTO of Jolt Online.

      World of the Living Dead is about the difficulties of surviving in the zombie apocalypse, about scarcity, dehydration and starvation. Players must guide their small group of survivors through the zombie-filled streets of over twelve thousand square kilometers of Los Angeles County, competing against other players for scarce resources to survive.
