SANTA MONICA, Calif. - June 23, 2014 - OUYA today announced that Age of Zombies, the smash-hit top-down shooter from Halfbrick Studios, will be available on OUYA on June 30. A huge success on mobile platforms and PS Vita, Age of Zombies takes players on an action-packed journey through space and time as they hunt the zombie hordes of Professor Brains and try to save humanity from undead-based annihilation.

Players take on the role of Barry Steakfries, the tough-as-nails time-travelling commando who is quick with a joke and faster still with a trigger. Using nothing but his guile, natural athletic ability, and a staggering array of high-powered weaponry, Barry will face off against shambling hordes and powerful boss-zombies in six unique periods of history, from ancient Egypt to feudal Japan and the Wild West.

Perfect for anyone who has ever dreamed of witty repartee with a zombie T-Rex (and let’s be honest, who hasn’t?), Age of Zombies’ fast-paced run-and-gun gameplay and irreverent humor have made it a fan favorite, and the OUYA version marks the first time that the game will be available for set-top consoles.
