Zombie Studios was an American independent video game developer of console, PC, mobile and web-based games. It was formed in 1994 as Zombie, LLC by Joanna Alexander and Mark Long, formerly of the Sarnoff Research Center. Alexander and Long founded Zombie after they completed the design of a virtual reality game console for Hasbro at Sarnoff in 1993. Since then, Zombie has designed and produced over 30 original games for worldwide distribution on virtually every major platform - from Sega 32X to 64bit PCs. From 1999 to 2004 the company was known as Zombie Inc.. They created a value label in 2005 - Direct Action Games - to design and produce value titles for both PC and consoles.
Their titles spanned a range of product genres including first-person shooter, real-time strategy, puzzle, arcade, adventure, hunting, and simulation. Zombie developed for a wide variety of gaming platforms including Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 2, Xbox, PCs, and mobile phones.
After more than 20 years in operation, Zombie Studios shut down in January 2015 with its owners retirement.
