Night of the Living Dead


Mike McVey has created a ton of amazing minis in his years as a leading sculptor in the industry. Now, he's trying his hand at making some rather inconic characters in the form of the survivors and gh

Mike McVey is sculpting again? Whoa. The last sculpt that I remember from him was Karchev the Terrible- more than a decade ago. I'm not at all surprised that he's in charge of the minis, but I'm really surprised that he's sculpting them. He's just been more of the minis art director for a long time (and he's clearly very good at it- he gets some of the best work out of some very good sculptors).

The style is different from other Zombicide stuff. It reminds me a bit of a historical miniatures line- very understated in comparison to what we normally see from CMON.

Wait- maybe Mike isn't sculpting. From the article, he says the sculpting team is RN Studios and David Camarasa. Mike is still doing a great job as art director (even with this project that is clearly very different from what he usually does).
When creating the tiles for the Night of the Living Dead: A Zombicide Game, artist Henning Ludvigsen did his best to recreate the actual sets used. He really goes all-out when creating these pieces, n
The artwork for a game is arguably one of the most important aspects of it. And when a game is an adaptation of a beloved movie, that just goes doubly-so. Well, CMON is adapting Night of the Living De
There are many ways that game designers can approach taking a movie or TV show and turning it into a board game. How did the Zombicide developers do it with Night of the Living Dead? We may never know
Copyright. It's an interesting subject. Obviously, when you create something, you want to be able to control how its used. Well, Night of the Living Dead has had an interesting copyright life, and wit

Should have named this article "Rights of the Living Dead." So the film itself is public domain, but the restoration and the character likenesses are protected, right? The people who work with Image Ten have always had access to better copies of the film (a lot of the DVD releases have deteriorated so much that people think it was shot on 16mm film stock rather than 32mm). The likeness rights means that derivative works like the game need the license. What surprises me is that they claim that this protects from 'bootleg' copies of the original version of the film- which is still public domain. I was kind of surprised that CMON wasn't using additional Romero "Of the Dead" series stuff, but those rights are probably not held by Image Ten.

I love the title "Rights on the Living Dead!" Well played. Yeah, copyright law is very confusing to say the least. It doesn't help that some companies (ah-hem, Disney) find ways to extend copyright law far beyond what it was originally intended to do.
Night of the Living Dead changed the horror movie genre when it was released. Zombicide changed cooperative zombie board gaming when it wa released. Now, these two pillars of their respective genres a

Campaigns under two weeks have broken the prediction model before, so I don't think it applies here. Especially since this campaign features no add ons or stretch goals. I do think it is interesting the ways in which they've chosen to incorporate Romero's style into zombicide (with the relatives zombies and lack of runners and abominations). And it is strange how many of those normal walker zombies I actually recognize from the film. I wonder how this will contrast to every other version of Zombicide that I've played.
Night of the Living Dead changed the horror movie genre forever. Zombicide changed cooperative board gaming forever. It was only inevitable that these two giants were going to meet up. And soon they w
CMON might've just wrapped up funding on the 2nd edition of Zombicide, but that's not the end of the Zombicide news. You might remember a while ago that they announced a Night of the Living Dead versi

YES!!!!!!!!!!! Amazing!!!!!
Night of the Living Dead came out 50 years ago this month. It's an icon of the horror movie genre, basically laying the groundwork for all zombie movies to come. George A. Romero's classic is soon to
