The notion that rock & roll is the Devil has been around for a very, very long time. However, this may be the first time that anyone has blamed zombies on it. Yes. Dead Block went there. An upcoming 3rd person Action/Tower Defense game, Dead Block is set in the 1950's and looks intent on capitalizing on the campy humor often associated with the era.

Featuring three diverse survivors, the game will have players boarding up windows, assembling traps, collecting items and even rocking out on guitars to blow up shambling ghouls. I'm not really certain how it'd all pan out but we will find out soon enough. Personally, I think this might work out pretty well but then again, I could be biased towards the opportunity for co-opt play and the fact it has some of the most ridiculous traps I've seen yet. Due for release on both XBLA and PSN, Dead Block will be priced at 800 MS and $9.99 respectively.
