Shooting zombies and saving a space station



Down in the North Hall booth crawl I found a light gun game called Forbidden Terror on Space Station Z. I wasn’t aware of the title and probably for good reason. Emergent Technologies developed the “game” with a team of four people as a tech demo. The tech demo was on three four platforms, but I rushed to try the Wii version since it was a light gun game.


Two players share a life bar, but since no one else seemed interested in it I got to play the game John Woo style. Like any other light gun game, you point and shoot. More specifically shoot zombies. One or two appear on the screen at a time and not all of them are House of the Dead hostile. When I stopped firing to shake the pistols and reload a plump zombie grabbed his loose intestines and flapped them around. Amusing.


For a demo this was actually pretty entertaining so I asked if they considered releasing this as a WiiWare game. The response I got was, “we might be able to work something out with a salesman.”


Correction: As pointed in the comments, a PC version I wasn't aware of was on the show floor.
