Ziggurat Games releases a classic FMV experience worthy of a fun Halloween night with Philips P.O.V. Entertainment Group’s edutainment game Zombie Dinos from Planet Zeltoid.
FMV games can be intentionally or unintentionally funny, and this title certainly belongs to the first category with its bonkers story about Harry the Harrier turning dinosaurs into zombies with his alien Brain Blobs in order to rule the world with them today. Fortunately there’s time traveler Dexter the Dinodroid saving the day or rather the dinosaurs before this evil plan comes to fruition.
Despite its ludicrous idea, the game is actually an education adventure in which players have to learn about each individual dinosaur in order to find them before they become zombies. By using the Grunt-O-Meter one can send Dexter to any location, preferably the one where the dinos are, which can be deduced from their behavior and habitat, for example. With Dexter being voiced by Cam Clarke who did some work on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, this already sounds like a lot of fun, worth taking a trip back to the FMV-heavy 90ies.
The game was originally released in 1992 and is out now on PC with a 33% launch discount that lasts until today, October 8, 2021, at 1 PM.
