Oh, you want to hear more? Good, because the team at Downward Viral has a ton to offer. Z., the new digital card game that features human vs. zombie warfare, is already looking to shape digital screens worldwide. In particular, this game is unique in that it’s looking to boast as many platforms as possible, all synched to a single account. Like your cards on a PC? A Macbook ? Facebook? iOS? Android? They’ve got you covered on everything under the sun. 

In addition to simple card game mechanics that are aimed to be accessible to many, Z. is looking to boast some interesting concepts rarely touched by other games of its genre. In particular, Downward Viral has partnered with Northern Five Entertainment, who filmed the Left For Dead short film. Interspersed with your card slinging will be loads of live action episodic storytelling. 

Z. looking to cover everything with asynchronous multiplayer. Games sport an intelligent matchmaking system that will only pair players of similar deck strength, allowing you to always play with a fair challenge.
