Dead Island sounds familiar to you, then you have a good memory. It was originally announced in 2007, but no publisher was officially attached. Techland worked on other projects in the years since, but Dead Island was slowly shuffling along in the background. Now, Deep Silver is on board, and the game seems likely to see the light of day. It's scheduled for a 2011 release on Xbox 360, PC and PS3, but no specific dates have been revealed yet.

Dead Island's concept is striking. Place players on a tropical island; surround them with zombies of varying shapes, sizes, speeds and abilities; place only found objects at their disposal; degrade their weapons over time; and set the whole adventure against a backdrop of mystery and drama. But will a first-person melee combat action game with RPG elements really work?


The Royal Palms Resort is perched on the remote island of Banoi in Papua New Guinea. It's a tropical paradise turned tourist magnet, remote and exotic. Not the sort of place you'd expect to find scattered caches of weapons, boxes of grenades, rocket launchers leaning against walls, and mounted machine guns. In an effort to preserve that reality, Techland, the developers of Dead Island, have stripped those handy gaming conventions away, leaving a stark reality in their place.

Rather than run-and-gun their way through a meat maze, players will be forced to scavenge for objects and use them to beat their undead foes into submission. There are precious few firearms scattered around the island (and even less ammo), so the majority of the combat will be intimate. Knives, machetes, bats, broomsticks, pipes these are your defenses against the horde of infected monsters. It's survival horror with a melee action twist, and it's disgusting.

I was wondering what happened to that game not a long time ago.

EDIT Trailer is so boring but kinda reminds me of Lost.

I didn't see it mentioned when I posted originally. I've contacted the two people I saw mention the game first RE: money where my mouth is, etc.

I actually really liked the trailer as a standalone entity but it did nothing to actually get me excited about the game. It was basically just an entertaining little short.

Never heard of it... Wiki says:

Dead Island is a survival horror first-person shooter with RPG elements, currently in development by Techland for Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360.

I'm guessing the PC version will be eventually canceled. =(

The game features a sandbox style gameplay on a tropical island.
The zombie style and the story are massively influenced by George A Romero's movies.
The game is focused on melee combat, the player can pick up almost anything and use it as a weapon.
There might be multiple playable characters.

Sounds like Left4Dead on an island. =/

Why? It's not published my MS. Also it is said to be an open world game with a focus on melee combat. Going by the other stuff they have done and the trailer it also seems like it will be very story focused.
