Everybody’s Talking About That Dead Island Trailer

The world has been talking about the Dead Island trailer and word on the street is that it’s emotional and shocking. Who knew a little video game trailer about a family on a vacation getaway at a hotel being attacked by zombies would garner this much attention.

Here are some things to look at. In less than a week, the Dead Island Facebook Page had over 100,000 fans. It received over 2.7 million views on YouTube. Our movie buddies over at Variety, Ain’t-It-Cool-News, EmpireĀ and SFX have been raving about it. There was close to 3.2 million Tweets about it.

Even these guys that you may have heard of have been digging it including Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Star Trek), Ice-T, Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear Solid), and Zachary Levi (Chuck) saying, “Possibly the greatest trailer I’ve ever seen. For any project. Ever.”

Dead Island is being developed by Techland and combines first-person action with melee-focused combat. The game will come out later this year for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
