Office Massacre To Become Office Zombies

For immediate release.

Monday the 3rd April 2006

Alten8 would like to announce after the recent headlines over the, about to be released Office Massacre phone game, it decided to stop the games release in that version.

After genuine shock at the negative press being generated after a few individuals commented on the game, which was seen as nothing more than a cartoon game by those involved with it, Alten8 decided the right moral decision to take, was to remove the game before it went to market in that form. No offence to any party was intended by this original game.

Further to that decision and in conjunction with the original development team, Zen Design, the game is being quickly reworked, and graphical and plot changes made to rebrand the game as OFFICE ZOMBIES. These changes, and further porting will take a very short space of time to carry out.

We hope this will reassure the critics of Alten8, and the game itself, of Alten8's social and business model. We also hope that it will align the game more in the genre of other accepted Zombie style games, as opposed to some extreme violence games, which it was being compared to. The game is a cartoon style one finger play casual game, rather than a life like role play game.
