VIDEO GAME NEWS: Zombie Wedding Extension Date from Deep Silver

Hail Guy's and Ghouls,
We know that you're feeling the love in your undead hands out there today (mainly because of that heart you've just ripped out of the nearest blood bag), but we wanted to let you know that our friends at Deep Silver have extended their Zombie Wedding Dead-line for a little while longer.

Here's what they had to say:
"Deep Silver today announced that it is extending the closing date for applications for the Dead Island Riptide zombie wedding to 14 March 2013.

In return for becoming the official Dead Island Riptide zombie couple, Deep Silver will host a Dead Island Riptide-themed zombie wedding ceremony and send the winning undead couple on a luxury Caribbean honeymoon.

Deep Silver has been overwhelmed by the entries from engaged couples looking to be zombified for a Dead Island twist on a traditional beach wedding ceremony. Standout entries so far include Emma and Ivor who filmed a mini-zombie apocalypse:

a slideshow charting the long-distance undead relationship of Megan and Jason 
and an audition featuring some hilarious blood-swallowing outtakes from Harri and James 

Applicants are encouraged to post a message or record a short video message to YouTube explaining why they are the ideal undead candidates for the ceremony, and to share the link via the official Dead Island Riptide Zombie Wedding page on Facebook

For a guide on how to apply, Deep Silver has put together this YouTube video: 

A panel from Deep Silver will then review all applications and contact a shortlist of candidates to see if they have what it takes for the ultimate undead accolade. The new closing date for applications is 14th March 2013, with the winning couple being announced at the beginning of April.

For further information and full terms and conditions, go to the official Facebook page:

Gamers will be able to take on the zombie hordes once again when Dead Island Riptide is published by Deep Silver in UK on 26 April 2013 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and for Windows PC."

So just to recap, here's you chance for a zombie wedding, so if you were in the Caribbean and some devottee of Baron Samedi has ripped out your heart before the wedding, this should be a walk in the park for you to win.  

(Incidently if you somehow forgot that its Valentines Day, you can visit Dead Island Riptides Facebook page and send an E-Card, with a selection to choose from appearing throughout the day.)

Best of luck,

Gareth and Lady Eleanor
