GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES theme now available on Rock Band Network

I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES 1N IT!!!1 is one of the best, and definitely most self-referential Xbox Live Indie games to date. The game is as unambiguous as the lyrics to a Linkin Park song, which should be immediately apparent from its title. It's a no-nonsense Smash TV-style shooter heavily wrapped in endearing self-parody, as especially expressed by its theme song, all nine minutes and forty-five seconds of which is now available on the 360's Rock Band Network for a dollar. (I'd buy that for a dollar!)


Above: Great, or greatest theme song?

The creator has also struck a deal with angsty, vintage-faking, ironically-ironic retailer Hot Topic to sell Z0MB1ES t-shirts, but that doesn't make it any less cool. It seems like part of the joke, and now we kind of want to go to Hot Topic, even though we're so uncool that our affection for the cartoons on their shirts comes from actually having been alive and watching them as kids. But lucky for us, the Z0MB1ES shirts will only be sold via HotTopic.com, so we don't have to bother. Phew.

    Ohh yeahhh.. I bought this game, great for short term immediate fun. Though... selling the song for the same price as the entire game itself? Sort of odd, there's been free RB songs before, this should have been one of them.

    Hey Brett, you should do one of The Residents' games like Bad Day on The Fairway or something.

    Look, brett even likes this game music! *Boing!* I played this game at my friends house, I hated it, but I played it for an hour because I couldn't resist the sweet song-nectar of this thing.
