That is exactly what horror fans will get now that we've signed high profile developer Kuju Entertainment."
Ian Baverstock, business development director and co-founder of Kuju Entertainment, was full of praise for Romero and Hip interactive: "Our spines are tingling in anticipation. George A. Romero is recognized as one of the leading directors in the horror world. We're excited to be translating the zombies and terror created in George's imagination into an atmospheric gorefest for game players." He continued, "We're also extremely pleased to be working with Hip Interactive, which has become a publishing force to be reckoned with."
