Dead Block, developed by Candygun Games and published by Digital Reality, looks to be another installment in the flourishing genre of trap-based defense strategy games. Surely there’s a more specific genre for that than “tower defense”, but tentatively that’s the sort of game Dead Block appears to be. Looks like Orcs Must Die and Dungeon Defenders may have some competition, albeit not thematically.

This festivity of home security and zombie inundation will feature 10 single player levels and up to four player splitscreen to take on eight co-op levels with nine sorts of traps and weapons with which to effortlessly efface the affected. Look for Dead Block‘s release in Summer 2011.
