Caught entirely unaware, an unnamed redneck farmer must fight his way through hundreds of living corpses, all bent on devouring any human flesh they can find, in order to reach some sort of safe ground. After finding that the city he hoped would support him is completely overrun and slowly burning to the ground, he decides to make a run for the last salvation--The City Of The Living, and their skyscraper, Fiddler's Green.

This was originally developed as a single-player PC game called Day of the Zombie, which had a four month development cycle and was ready for an October 2004 release. Day of the Zombie was shown to Universal Studios around the time the movie Land of the Dead
(2005) was being filmed in Toronto, Canada (where Groove is headquartered) - this is how the license was secured. The game was ported to Xbox, multiplayer functionality was added and environments were added to tie the game to the movie. See more
