Hungarian-based developer Digital Reality and German developer Candygun Games announced today that they will be releasing their campy zombie defense title, Dead Block, next month. Set in the 1950s, Dead Block puts you in the shoes… or work boots, of the rotund boy scout Mike Bacon, construction worker Jack Foster and meter maid Foxy Jones as the three survivors of a zombie apocalypse brought on by a musical plague that raised the dead. Each of the three have their own unique “Smart Bomb” attack, and will get access to various unlockable traps, power-ups and other items and weapons to help them take on the zombie hordes.

Playable alone or with up to three friends – jump-in/jump-out play included – the game will test your survival skills in humorous ways, letting you take the zombies head-on, or more strategically, using traps, items and even  guitar power (remember, the whole thing was brought about by a musical plague, right?). You can see some of the more creative eliminations in the trailer below. Dead Block will be releasing on July 6th via Xbox Live Arcade and July 20th via the Playstation Network, for 800 Microsoft Points and $9.99 USD respectively.
