dead of winter video 2

For a great start to your Halloween gaming, check out this Dead of Winter Youtube video by Geek & Sundry (the makers of Tabletop). It’s a short skit featuring Felicia Day and Brandon Routh, and it takes you into the theme of Dead of Winter as five characters struggle to survive the zombie apocalypse.

Speaking of Dead of Winter, the Dead of Winter: Crossroads App was released for Android (it will come to iOS soon). The app replaces the crossroads cards in the game, with Eric Summerer (co-host of the Dice Tower Podcast) narrating the text on each card. Also, it presents the information in stages, so you can immerse yourself in the story, not knowing the outcome of your actions when you make a choice. Check out the Android version and be on the lookout for the iOS version!
