The G*M*S Magazine Podcast Episode 66–Horror games and Zombies with WJ McGuffin

Since Halloween is the time of the year when the veil between the living and the dead is thinnest, we though it’s be a good idea to talk with Dale and Vickey about horror games and also about zombies.

And talking Zombies, you might remember a short while ago I reviewed Outlive Outdead, from Happy Bishop Games. In this episode i have the pleasure of interviewing WJ McGuffin, the excellent writer behind the game and the concept of creating an RPG that’s actually competitive.

Outlive Outdead review

Zombies have held a fascination for me for a very, very long time. Maybe it’s because they represent a future even darker and more unpleasant than death. The notion of being reduced to a husk only motivated by hunger and unable to rest in peace while attempting to eat other people alive is a pretty horrific one.

War of the Dead: Chapter 1

War of the Dead Chapter One is the first leg of the War of the Dead campaign epic for Savage Worlds by Daring Entertainment. To be clear: Chapter One is actually 13 adventures, of which there will ultimately be 52 (not counting one sheets, which Daring has begun to release). It is a modern setting, set during a zombie outbreak, and you can buy them in bits or you can buy all of Chapter One as a package. I’m going to save you the trouble: Like Savage Worlds and zombies? Go buy the bundle. I’ll even link to it for you.
