George A. Romero Stars in 'Zombie Squash' Video Game; Kickstarter Campaign Launched

Phoenix, AZ, May 23, 2012 ( via COMTEX) -- ACW Games, a division of Attila's Creative Works LLC, officially announced today that George A. Romero, the Godfather of All Zombies, is starring in their upcoming video game, Zombie SquashTM, providing the voice for the lead villain game boss, Dr. Beau E. Vil. Since his ground-breaking, trendsetting masterpiece, 'Night of the Living Dead' George Romero's name has become synonymous with zombies. This time around, Romero creates a new cartoon-style voice in Zombie SquashTM as an evil scientist.

ACW Owner Attila Juhasz is the creator of Zombie SquashTM, a world where vegetation has gone wild from evil experiments gone wrong. Zombie SquashTM is a tower defense style game where the Player is a rabbit named Jack Stompingtail who fires carrots, zucchini and other garden ammo at Dr. Beau E. Vil's horde of gorde onslaught. The player has to try and stop the Zombie SquashTM from taking over the world. The game will be initially released for PC and Mac desktops late October 2012. ACW is also working on versions for iPhone, iPod, iPad and most major Android marketplaces, as well as the most popular Android devices, including Amazon Kindle Fire, B&N Nook Color, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

"I started developing Zombie SquashTM two years ago," says Juhasz, "and released a short demo last Halloween." Since then Juhasz has recruited the iconic George A. Romero to star in the game and Billboard-charting music producer, Roy Z. to co-write and produce the soundtrack. World-renowned illustrator, Marc Sasso also joined the Zombie Squash team illustrating the new official cover, and creating characters and art.

ACW Games also launched their Zombie SquashTM Kickstarter campaign today. Kickstarter is a social funding community where people become backers of independent creative ventures like video games. An online video featuring George Romero, Attila Juhasz and snippets of the game, art and music can be viewed at the Zombie SquashTM Kickstarter page - "Through Kickstarter, our friends, fans and other social backers give us the opportunity to have a release ready for Halloween," states Juhasz.
