I tell ya, video games get weirder every single day, zombies pretty much being part of every other title released. That said, it is pretty rare to actually step into the shoes of one (like in Infectonator : Hot Chase), and even less so, far as ghosts are concerned. But there’s hope yet, as Over My Dead Body (For You) solves this particular conundrum… by having the player partake in the role of a zombie and a ghost… at the same time! So groovy.
Now, it probably goes without saying, but this particular state for its protagonist – yes, singular – was not exactly by choice, so much as, well, something something evil corporation experiment. As such, there’s only one thing on her mind: REVENGE! Oh, and a cure. Because this so-called state of ‘Double Undeath’ isn’t exactly ideal, no matter how one feels about zombies or ghosts in general.
It’s almost guaranteed to make your trip through the Mortiga Complex easier though, as a ghost can do things a zombie can’t, and vice versa. In theory, anyway. Based on the trailer below, ghosts are somehow able to manipulate terminals, while zombies are easily replaced? I’m sure it all makes sense in Over My Dead Body (For You). Somehow. Either way, it does seem to be a rather unique and lovely take on the much too rare ‘single player co-op’ concept (even if the game is also co-op enabled…). Power to the mighty zombie ghost!
Over My Dead Body (For You) is available from Steam, carrying a $9.99 price tag.
