Capcom Releases ‘Free to Play’ Zombie Cafe Game – Wait, Where Have I Heard of Zombie Cafes Before?

Never content with their undisputed status as Kings of Anti-Zombie Videogames (well, undisputed except by Valve), Capcom has turned to freeware on the iOS (iPhone OS) to expand their market of hate:

In the world of Zombie Café, the food service industry is a life and death business. In addition to managing a menu, preparing up to 50 recipes and decorating their café with more than 100 items, players will have to deal with the ramifications of having a wait staff comprised of undead zombies. Sure the cost of labor is low, but having a fussy zombie try and eat a customer will sink a player’s star rating. On the plus side, if the competition gets too fierce players can always direct their zombie workers to attack a neighboring café and steal their secret recipes.

Capcom has plans to monetize this somewhat by selling DLC and add-ons, if you were wondering about the ‘free’ part.

Now, this concept, I think I’ve heard of it before.. I wonder where..

Oh, right. Here, on this blog:

Zombie Cafe is easy to learn, easy to play, and highly portable, with the contents all easily fitting into the small game envelope; one could most likely put the entire game in a moderately sized case for carrying a MtG deck. In our experience, games take 15-20 minutes to play (though this is with 2 players, longer games could well take more time), which is perfect for a quick break before bracing oneself for the latest Romero atrocity at the local multiplex, or while hanging out at a convention, or otherwise engaging in direct pro-Zombie activity.

Naturally, Capcom has Zombies as cheap and disobedient labor, rather than consumers with minds and currency of their own. It would be entirely too progressive for them to allow Zombies that degree of agency, or to allow for the possibility that Zombies could contribute to society at large. Nope! Food service for them, sprinkled with violence of course.

Brother. If I was you, dear reader, I’d stick with grabbing a copy of Zombie Cafe from Wayne West. It’s fun and far less stereotyped.
