The Last Guy: First Trailer and Details Emerge

What do you get when you mix together zombies, Google Earth and top-down, arcade-style action? Go ahead, guess. Give up yet? OK, let me help you out here. The answer is The Last Guy, yet another brilliant new game concept Sony has lined up for its rapidly-blossoming PlayStation Network. So what exactly is The Last Guy? Well, here’s the debut trailer to give you an idea:

Still confused? I figured as much, so here’s a brief synopsis per details provided today over at the PlayStation blog. The Last Guy is a “fast-paced and addictive classic arcade style game” in which you take the role of a heroic zombie from the Himalayan mountains who is on a mission to rescue Earth’s remaining survivors after a purple beam of light strikes the planet and turns most of the population into evil zombies. As The Last Guy you’ll trek across the globe and attempt to rescue all remaining human survivors from the zombie plague. Levels in the game are designed after actual real-time aerial maps of real cities — LA, London and Tokyo are three that have been unveiled so far. Kooky, huh?

It’ll be interesting to see if The Last Guy somehow ties into Sony’s upcoming “Life with PlayStation” real-time news and weather program. Wouldn’t it be neat if current weather conditions were reflected in game? I’m sold either way, but I think that’d be a clever way to introduce the service.
