Based on the 1996 game that was first released by SEGA in arcades, The House of the Dead is a two-player game that sees players fight hordes of zombies and monsters using guns, with the story unfolding through chapters as you beat down enemies through a linear path and progress through after defeating them. It’s basically Time Crisis meets Resident Evil, and like the latter game this helped popularize the zombie and horror themed video game genres of that gaming generation.
Speaking of horror themed games, Resident Evil’s newest installment RE Village has new screenshots up — including a portrait of one ofthe antagonists of the game Mother Miranda.
