Red Orchestra: Ostfront developer Tripwire Interactive is making a zombie game. A British zombie game.

Called Killing Floor, it’s six-player co-op affair. See on IGN.

It’s being described as “Dead Alive meets The Re-Animator” and a “grindhouse exploitation horror film”.

When asked if it will draw comparisons to Left 4 Dead, designer John Gibson says that it relies on a sense of dread more than an in-your-face wave of zombies.

“It is sort of like George Romero meets sci-fi. L4D goes for the constant, frantic, in-your-face fast moving zombie shock value”, he said.

“On the other hand, Killing Floor works to build a palatable sense of dread as a wave of specimens. The enemies in KF shamble towards you. That’s not to say it’s not action-packed; I’d just say there is more of a variety in pacing and in the types of enemies you fight.”

The first person shooter should be out sometime this year. No word yet on what formats.

    Yes, because the easy availability of firearms in the UK, and high percentage of ordinary people here who are proficient in firearms use, make it the clear no-brainer locale for a zombie survivalist shooter…
