Zombie Byte! for iOS & Android Delivers Rare Zombie Experience on Kickstarter

Inspired by video game culture, Zombie Byte is set in alternate universe where a boy named Miles must battle zombie versions of his video games characters as he uncovers the mysterious connection between himself and the zombie video game outbreak.

We are deeply proud of Miles and feel he is an endearing character that will resonate in the hearts of gamers of all ages. We could not be happier with Miles leading the Zombie Byte! Franchise.

    FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, May 20, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Indie startup GameForward Studio announces their Zombie Byte crowdfunding campaign is now live on Kickstarter.

Set in an alternate universe, Zombie Byte! is a 2D side-scrolling action adventure game title for all ages on iOS & Android. Playing as Miles players will partake in a story driven experience filled with triumph, deception, and plot twists as they uncover the true connection between Miles and the zombie video game outbreak.

Miles is a lovable, witty, smart, and adept 13 year old boy who has a deep passion for all things video game. An avid gamer and collector, Miles has amassed the world's largest video game collection in his parents basement. But one day while playing his video games a portal suddenly opens and Miles' video games come to life as zombies and start emerging from his TV.

Zombie Byte!'s core gameplay centers around Miles running, jumping, shooting, swinging through the air with his grapple hook, and piloting a mech. Accompanied by a cartoon 2D Art Style with 3D visual effects, Zombie Byte! makes use of a mix of puzzle elements, scripted sequences, and boss battles to create gameplay variety.

As Miles confronts the zombie video game outbreak he may become overwhelmed in need of help. Through social media Game Forward Studio has created a interactive gameplay system for players in the Zombie Byte community to help one another in these times of need. Dubbed "Play it Forward" players can request and provide Health and Power Ups from one another during those intense moments.
