The Lab

Undead Labs is a Seattle, Washington-based game development studio that’s on a mission to take online gaming in bold new directions. Our singular focus is to create the definitive zombie-survival game for gamers. Put your survival skills to the ultimate test and fight alongside friends to reclaim your world from the undead hordes.

You know it’s not a question of if, but when. What will you do?

Why zombies? Because living out our post-societal-collapse survivalist fantasies sounds like a blast. We’ve all watched zombie movies and thought, “What would I do?” Join us and find out!

We’re going to make a game with the sweet action, streamlined interface, polish, and cooperative play that gamers expect. Then add to this the vast virtual world, global in-game community, and fun social dynamics of the best online worlds, and it’s pretty much a no-brainer!

Undead Labs was formed in 2009 by MMO industry veteran Jeff Strain, with the goal of building a creative studio around the most talented — and zombie loving — developers in the industry. You can read all the details in the Undead Labs formation announcement.
