31 Days 2020 Edition Day 18: Neighborhood


Nearly Three decades have passed and the closest we ever got to having something like Zombies Ate My Neighbors was Death Road to Canada.


Evening of the Undead: Zombies Ate My Neighbors


Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed my time with Death Road to Canada but Zombies Ate My Neighbors was a lot more fun in my opinion. The looting felt better and the lack of total randomness actually made the overall experience more enjoyable for me. It isn’t perfect but it’s a damn fine zombie game that ends up being more of a love letter to Horror in general. The music is also really good matching well with the themes of each level. This one in particular took me quite some time to fully understand. There is this nearly incomprehensible gibberish that plays periodically through the song. I thought it might be from an enemy, a cry or call added to the song to give it something different. I was only partially correct on my guess. The sound was indeed part of the song but it wasn’t an enemy. That clip is actually someone saying “Is there anyone outside”. Listen to it again if you didn’t catch this before and you’ll hear it much clearer this time around. The Neighbors are asking if anyone is outside and that can have 2 meanings. One is that the neighbors are looking for other survivors or they’re asking because they’re afraid of what they’ll find skulking outside their homes (not that it matters when chainsaw maniacs can cut through the walls). Either way this small bit is a very nice touch to an amazing track. It adds a bit more context and personality to the game.

About Agent9one of us since 12:45 PM on 04.13.2010

Who is Agent9? The not so secret agent of the destructoid community.

A Few things about me

- I'm almost finished with my degree in computer science and I plan on going into independent development and freelancing once I'm done.

- I can be very cynical, but I do try to be positive or curb my negativity. In spite of this I'm actually very jovial in person and I don't get mad often. I would dare say I'm quite happy, even when things seem bleak. I simply don't like industry Bullshit and I'm not one to stand for it, even if it's a game I like.

- I host a series annually called 31 Days where I post 1 horror related or themed video game song a day for the month of october. During this time I also provide keys for games (free of course) to any reader observant enough to find them.

- I've been a member of destructoid since 2010, and a lurker long before then. As such I've seen many people both come and go. Such is the natural order of things.

- I enjoy Art and draw in my spare time

- I also enjoy theatre and films. I especially like Horror movies (both good and bad ones).

- I go camping once or twice a year. I would go out more but my allergies tend to get in the way.

- I don't drink, which may be a surprise to some. I might make a joke or two about it but I stay away from alcohol for my own personal reasons, though you can feel free to drink a pint on my behalf any time you'd like.

This is a commission I had done for me by Inquisitive Ravenclaw. You should check out his site if you like the following piece

I also got a musical piece made for me by the incredible Alphadeus. A little history behind this:

My musical piece came as part of the Songs for Gamers album DLC pack 02. Alphadeus has been making songs for the members of the destructoid community for years already. This past year he opened submissions and I applied. For my meagre efforts I received this lovely piece:

You can find him on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFs2UhJYPVITYWCiqMk-z3w

He also has other venues listed on his profile here, take a look if you are so inclined:

The community is full of people with all kinds of talent and I'm very pleased to be a part of it along with all of you (yes, you too fair reader).
