10/27/2011 - Zombie Misfits New Open Beta
Zombie Misfits: Nexon opens Facebook brain buffet

Zombie Misfits enters open beta phase on Facebook, available now

Facebook just got a lot more undead today as Nexon America opens up Zombie Misfits, a cartoon-style apocalyptic tower defense game with an RPG flare. Zombie Misfits, now officially in its open beta testing phase, is the second title in the leading online game publisher’s portfolio of Facebook games.

In traditional tower-defense style, players place a series of defender characters, each with a unique set of mechanics, to guard against waves of brain-craving zombies. To defend themselves against the onslaught, players are armed with weapons and contraptions that allow them to directly engage in battle. Players must prevent the zombies from reaching the survivor camp at the end of the map by strategically placing defenders and powering up equipment.

As players battle through hoards of bloodthirsty zombies they will have the opportunity to strengthen their characters by collecting currency and salvage, gain attributes, learn new skills and equip stronger gear. A crafting system adds an even stronger RPG aspect to the game as players gather ingredients to make contraptions, which can be used to assist defenders. Additionally, through the Facebook platform, players will be able to interact with their army of friends by calling for help for those particularly pesky post-dead. Players will be able to gift each other with a defender from their arsenal, which includes all level up bonuses and mods that are applied to that defender. 

Zombie Misfits will also feature a cash shop which lets players use Facebook Credits to purchase items that enhance their gaming experience. Additional support, including in-game content and new cash shop items, will continually be added to the game throughout its open beta phase.

“Zombie Misfits joins MapleStory Adventures as yet another demonstration of Nexon’s expertise in bringing premium gaming experiences to the widest audience possible,” said Daniel Kim, CEO of Nexon America. “With Zombie Misfits, Nexon is making significant strides in advancing the social platform, marking itself as a true leader and innovator in the social gaming territory.”

Zombie Misfits is co-developed by Canadian-based studio Antic Entertainment. Nexon chose Antic to receive funding and support through the 2010 Nexon Initiative, which awards visionary video game projects that align with the company’s focus on building community and encourages long-term user engagement.
