8-bit Walking Dead

8bitwalkingdead.jpg

Predictable movements? Only walk in straight lines at a constant speed? Easily shot down? If ever there was a perfect fit for an 8-bit videogame, it's zombies.

The good news is that the guys at Cinefix have done just that, creating an 8-bit version of the wildly popular TV series The Walking Dead. It tells the stories of the first two seasons of the show in four minutes of retro action. As with all their work, it is utterly glorious.

They're promising to take care of seasons 3 and 4 if they get enough YouTube likes, or if #8bitwalkingdead trends on Twitter - so what are you waiting for? Get watching below and start spreading the word on Twitter here.
