Dead Island: Trailer

Published on .

A controversial YouTube trailer for zombie game Dead Island has gone viral, thanks to its rewound horror-flick storyline and the current craze for zombies.

The film, by Axis Animation, based in Glasgow, UK, has garnered thousands of 'likes' on the Dead Island Facebook page and over a million hits on YouTube. Meanwhile, others are debating whether depicting the death of a young girl on vacation with her parents is a step too far in terms of bad taste.

The game itself, developed by Polish firm Techland and published by Deep Silver, is set on a tropical island where zombies lurk round every corner.
