The Walking Vegetables is the most radically-rapid, turbo-paced, top-down, zombie veggie-shooting mayhem you’ll ever experience!

Wednesday, September 13 th 2017, Manchester, UK. - Merge Games Ltd., a privately-owned video game publisher and distributor, and Still Running, a Finnish independent game studio, are delighted to announce the imminent release of The Walking Vegetables; a mad-cap, top-down 80s shooter. The PC version is set for release on 27 th September 2017.

It’s the 1980s and an evil alien race has invaded Earth, turning all vegetables into crawling, bawling, mauling, zombie abominations. You are about to join Department Radical, the grooviest police force on Earth. Are you a rad enough dude (or dame) to pulp these ravenous monstrosities?

Whilst storming from city to city, looting buildings for loads of glorious guns, gadgets, goodies and gold, you must stay alert ready to blast the marauding hordes into oblivion. The Walking Vegetables is the most radically-rapid, turbo-paced, top-down, zombie veggie-shooting mayhem you’ll ever experience!

By obtaining Radrocks from the vegetable kingpins, you can unlock dozens of devastating guns, gadgets and melee weapons to help you battle on towards the ominous vegetable-ridden alien headquarters and the formidable mothership.

As if the infected vegetables weren’t enough, the Alien vegeneration ray has also affected the fruit and mushrooms or Earth. Over 20 freshly squeezed organic and unique enemies are eager to taste of your humany flavour... And if, by chance, you manage to survive the unending onslaught of said ripe, ravenous ravagers, the several Epic Boss Fights are sure to put an end to your measly existence. Muahahahahaaa!

To survive you’ll need to build up your character, creating powerful effect combinations by choosing from more than 20 unique Skills, including such game changers as Big Game Hunter, Pulpinator, Akimbo and Tongue of Steel!

The content is OVERFLOWING! A single playthrough merely scratches the surface on what The Walking Vegetables has to offer. Randomized buildings, sections, enemies, bosses, weapons and items will make every game a completely unique experience. Combine this with the abundance of achievable skills and unlockable goodies and you are guaranteed to stay engaged and entertained for a loooong time!

You can also better your odds of surviving by having a friend to back you up. The couch co-op offers you a whole other level of awe-striking upbeat absurdity. After all, zombie vegetables are best served for two.
