The Game of LIFE (Zombie Edition) by maxevry The Game of LIFE (Zombie Edition) by maxevry
This was a fun piece for MTV NextMovie, based on an actual cover to the game from the 80s. From left to right: "Zombi 2", "Night of the Living Dead", "Warm Bodies", "Shaun of the Dead".

Originally appeared here: [link]

*"45 years" refers to the debut of "Night of the Living Dead" in 1968!

I like this, but shouldn't it be The Game of Unlife?


Since the undead are so popular right now, I wonder how far away we are from that game actually existing(presuming it doesn't already).

Maybe if we put it on our vision boards we can will it into existence?

Glad you dug it!  ;)

Since the walking dead and other characters getting the Frankenstein treatment seem to be America's favorite subject right now, I sent Hasbro an email suggesting the twist. If you have the time, I think it would further motivate them to get a message from you with the idea as well. ;-)

Clever little conceit you've got going here, and your use of actual Zombie characters is a wise choice that helps sell the idea. Likewise your attention to detail is solid, evoking realism but stylizing things enough to keep it interesting. :)

This has the potential to be the most boring game, and it never ends, or the best game ever!

Awesome! That had to be one of my favourite board games growing up... :love:

I wonder which zombie will lead the most successful "life" of them all? :iconthinkplz:

Let the game begin! And as for you, excellent work. Thanks for the nostalgia, pal! =)

You're quite welcome, sir! I would bet on R from WARM BODIES just because he actually has a shot at becoming human again. Nostalgia party! :D

Wait. Shouldn't this be The Game of DEATH? (No, that would ruin the irony, wouldn't it?)

Puns aside, this is pretty cool. I'd just suggest being careful about perspective (the board should be a little narrower at the end that's further away, and the money stacks should also be smaller and smaller the further away they are), and remembering that suits typically don't actually wrinkle a lot (more specifically, the right sleeve of the zombie under the "i" in "life").

But overall, nice work! :meow:

Vampires will always be secondary to zombies because zombies don't discriminate, they'll bite ANYTHING... and zombies don't sparkle. ;)

How about a drawing of my original characters Rain and Rena: [link] as undead zombies?

Here is Rain and Rena as adults: [link]
Here is Rain and Rena Age Regressed: [link]

Ether age is fine by me.
