Spicy Horse Games’ upcoming Oz game will have zombies and steampunk

American McGee’s, who developed the Alice: Maddness Returns game and owns Spicy Horse Games studio, has released a few more details about their upcoming new Oz game that we talked about only a few days ago. At the time the company didn’t even know what genre the game would be in or what it would all entail. Now we know that there will a Steampunk theme meshed into it as well as zombies.

The game also has a name, Ozombies, which is a rather nice play on words. Ozombies will be coming to multiple platforms including tablets and as Spicy Horse Community Manager Kelly Heckman said:

This is not, in any way, shape or form, the title from 2004. It will be based on the entire Oz series – almost all 14 titles – so expect to see unique things not seen in previous incarnations.

As for the storyline of the game, it is still up in the air but one idea that the company is toying around with is the Scarecrow from Wizard of Oz going on a rampage across Oz because he’s not happy with the brains the wizard of Oz happened to have gifted him, turning everything he can into zombies. The game will also feature cross-platform gameplay as well. Other than that, Spicy Horse Games still isn’t sure as to which genre this game will end up in.

One thing is being worked on though and that is what the Kickstarter tiers will be which means the company is seriously considering hitting up the crowdfunding site for funding the game’s development. If they go that route, hopefully we will learn more about the game itself.
